Helpful hints

  • When beating egg whites, start on low to medium speed until half whipped. At this point add pinch of salt or cream of tartar and increase mixer to high speed. The result is whipped whites that are more stable and take less time to whip.
  • Not recommended for people with diabetes due to high carbohydrate content.
