I have used and have the other model of separator that has the spout at the bottom side of the cup, but this one is so much better! Because no matter how carefully you tip it and pour the spouted type, some of the grease from the top always sneaks in with the juices and gets into the spout! So I was never happy with it, and was always looking for something better. Then I saw this one, and I thought I had to try it! With this separator you just squeeze the handle and the separated juice flows out the bottom of the cup while the fat sits on the top unmoved and you just let go of the handle when you get to the fat! Easy peasy, no muss, no fuss! I used this on this Thanksgiving for my Turkey pan drippings and my gravy was fabulous! I can't wait to use it again and again on all my liquids that need to have the fat removed! Clean up was very quick and easy, I washed it by hand, but I'm sure it would do fine in the top rack of the dishwasher! I just wanted to see how hard it was to clean by hand! I highly recommend this product to everyone!
