CRAP !!
a COPPER bowl works best, because they contain copper ions, some of which
get mixed into the egg whites as they are whipped. the ions form a yellow
complex with con-albumin, a protein found in eggs, a combination that is
stronger than the egg protein by itself. thus, egg whites whipped in a
copper bowl are less likely to become overbeaten.
