Tips: Whipping

Room temperature whites are easier to whip and achieve greater volume. If your whites are refrigerator cold (best for separating), you can warm the whites in the microwave. Place in a bowl and microwave uncovered for about 30 seconds at 30 percent power. Another option would be to hold the eggs, before cracking, under a stream of warm water to take off the chill.
