OXO Good Grips 4-Cup Fat Separator

Cut the fat with the OXO Good Grips Fat Separator with its own strainer and stopper. Pour your gravy into the Separator through the strainer and watch the fat rise to the top while lean gravy settles to the bottom. The heat-resistant strainer catches unwanted bits and the stopper prevents fat from entering the spout. Once the gravy has settled, remove the strainer and the stopper and pour out perfect gravy; a shield prevents fat from spilling over the top of the Separator. This heat-resistant Fat Separator has measurement markings for increased convenience and a non-slip handle for a comfortable, firm grip.

    Works perfectly – fat-free broth! I positively love my OXO fat separator! It holds a good amount of liquid, but not so much as to be difficult to pour. The lid helps strain out the solids, but if you want your broth to be absolutely clear, put a piece of cheesecloth over the lid.IMPORTANT – the little black stopper MUST be inserted in the pouring spout before you add liquids to the cup or the fat will simply rise up in the spout. The stopper creates a vacuum, forcing the fat into the main body of the cup. When you’re ready to pour, remove the stopper and the fat will remain floating in the body of the cup.This cup is made out of high-quality plastic and washes up well in the dishwasher. It doesn’t stain when you wash it with the tomato sauces! I’ve used mine for a couple of years and it’s as good as new. I wouldn’t make gravy or broth without it.

    2 Cups works better than 4 Cups to me Initially, I bought the bigger 4 cups of this separator, simply believing that “Bigger can do smaller jobs”. However, I had a hard time to separate fat. My guess for why it did not work with 4 cup was the total amount of liquid was not enough to the level of fat to stay high. Yes, I was right. Everything works perfectly with this smaller 2 cup fat separator.My recommendation is: Unless you do not have a huge amount of liquid, such as from big thanksgiving turkey, buy this 2 cups not 4 cups. Based on my experience, 2 cups is well enough for normal size of braising/roasting dishes. Moreover, if you have a huge amount of liquid, you just devide the amount into two batches and separate them twice. You have a flexibility to do so with this 2 cup separator but not with the larger 4 cup one.

    Yea!!! This is a nice big separator. It holds four cups and it has a wide mouth so it’s easier to fill. It’s lightweight and has a great OXO handle. I found it easy to use and it did the job well. It’s dishwasher safe too. The strainer on top does let a few small solids come through, but a piece of cheesecloth easily solves this. My previous separator had no straner at all.I think this is the best you’re gonna get.
