One of its benefits is that it makes the egg separating process convenient, easier and a lot less messy. For instance, rather than struggle with trying to extract the yolk from the egg white (meanwhile staining your skin with the egg white), an egg separator would come in handy.
All it takes is one suck and the separation is smooth and less messy. More so, if you are nauseated by the smell of egg on your palm long after separating the egg, an egg separator would do you a lot of good.
