We present a device-independent protocol to test if a given black-box measurement device is entangled, that is, has entangled eigenstates. Our scheme involves three parties and is inspired by entanglement swapping; the test uses the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt Bell inequality, checked between each pair of parties. In the case where all particles are qubits, we characterize quantitatively the deviation of the measurement device from a perfect Bell-state measurement.
