Scientists don't know precisely why, but for about three centuries cooks have known that whipping egg whites in an unlined copper bowl results in a creamier, more stable foam that's less susceptible to being overbeaten and dry. For making meringues, or for any dish that requires whipped egg whites, this 10-inch, 4-quart bowl is unsurpassed. Use it also for whipping up the Italian dessert called zabaglione. The bowl has a traditional brass ring so it can be hung flat against a wall. A bowl this beautiful can also hold fruit and vegetables on the counter. Because copperware is often used purely for decoration, the bowl comes with a protective coating that prevents tarnishing. If the bowl is used for cooking, the coating must be stripped off with any common lacquer remover. --Fred Brack
