Before the Oxo Fat Separator, I had used the ones made of glass. They always felt so fragile I was nervous when using them and storing them. The Oxo Separator is amazing. It is very user friendly. It has a large capacity, is very heat resistant and is easy to see through as you pour. A very minimal amount of fat was left at the bottom. The strainer allowed more liquid to be reserved when pouring off. I purchased the Oxo Separator as a gift for my mother and showed her how to use it over Christmas. I think I will order another for myself and get rid of my glass version.
I have only had one opportunity to use this so far. It seems that I needed more drippings to separate so that the cup would work properly and this was from a 20# turkey. I tried adding some broth to the contents in the cup to make the fat rise to the level where it wouldn't pour out with the good drippings. This seems to have worked better and I liked the rich broth this made. I have seen smaller versions of this separator and maybe this would resolve the problem. I am not sure that it is worth the considerable investment for someone who rarely roasts large pieces of meat.
Does everything I wanted it to do. Easy to use, cleans up well.

The quality of this fat separator is very nice and will be great for the holidays. Seems to have all the bells and whistles anyone should need. Unfortunately, I haven't had an opportunity to use it; I'll have to plan a family gathering as we are only two in this household and this item is nice and large.
I actually have one like this in the past that I seem to have lost. So I know I had to order exactly the same one. Very useful, very helpful especially when your're trying to watch and drain some fats from your cooking. Very helpful past thanksgiving.
I tried to use this with the drippings from a roasted chicken, but there was not enough volume for the separater to work. It will be more useful for Thanksgiving and the coming holidays, when there will be more drippings to work with.
I have wanted a fat separator for a long time. I have a really old one and was looking to update. I like this for a number of reasons, the size, the strainer on the top to catch larger bits of herbs, fat, etc., it has a really nice handle that is easy to hold, you have a nice grip with it. I am not sure what the stopper is for in the spout. It says it is to keep fat out of the spout, but I didn't see how that worked very well. Maybe I didn't let it sit long enough to separate correctly? I will try it again and see if it works better. But overall, it did a good job and the gravy I was making was a lot less greasy than if I didn't use this.
I ordered this for Thanksgiving because I was tired of trying to separate the fat from the good stuff for gravy. The spout stopper is nice because it keeps the fat out; just install the stopper after filling the measuring cup and the displacement of air pushed the fat from the spout up in to the cup portion.
My only dislike is that the holes on the strainer are a bit large; think large colander holes. Its not a huge deal as I dont mind a more rustic gravy.
Its also nice that the strainer is recessed a bit in the cup allowing for faster pouring in lieu of the model that has the strainer with no recess.
Another bonus is that is not a specialty gadget; we use it as a regular measuring cup when not making gravy.
I had a smaller separator that broke. When I received the new one I thought I would not ever use one so large. With 20 guest for Thanksgiving it really came in handy, it was just the right size that I needed. It cleaned up so nice and the strainer was great for keeping out pieces of unwanted items.
