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.

I'm not sure how this works, actually - it looked so great on America's Test Kitchen but when I tried it I couldn't see how the fat was separated. I've only tried it once, and the sauce was very hot, so I'm not sure how much fat could be separated. I haven't given up on it - will try it again the next time I have the opportunity, and see what I think! Very nice quality, and I have used it for measuring as well.
I used this for our Christmas turkey this year, to separate out the fat from the turkey drippings. 4 cups turned out to be too small, but that's because we had a 22 lb turkey this year. But I emptied the drippings into a measuring cup, dumped the first round of fat, and separated the rest of the drippings. It worked perfectly and the gravy was great. I can't wait to use it for turkey soup, up next.
At Thanksgiving we always need a strainer for the turkey gravy. This one really has the capacity along with the different strainers to accomplish the task without a problem. It is a bit large to store but that is what I wanted as it will accomodate the large amounts for Thanksgiving cooking as well as smaller portions for everyday. It's perfect for what I needed.
I haven't run into an Oxo product that I haven't been happy with. This fat separator was big enough to hold all of the drippings from a 25 lb. turkey which was roasted in 2 cups of chicken stock. The top strainer is a great help and the spout plug makes such a difference. Why didn't I think of that?
This fat seperator is perfect it has a strainer to strain the bigger bits out and the stopper so the fat doesn't get in the spout. Holds alot as well. I have a smaller cheaper one and I had the hardest time with it. I definetly would recomend this one size and function it's worth every penny.
My 5-yr old great niece says...........Auntie, it's magic! We were quiet pleased with the fat separator. It's great to purchase a product and it actually performs the way it should. We(my niece and I) really love it. I only wish it came in a larger cup capacity.
While planning Thanksgiving dinner for 16, I found this product in an email offer from cooking.com and thiught I'd give it a try. Sure glad I did! It's simple to use, just like the instructions describe, and my gravy was GREAT if I do say so myself! The Friday after Thanksgiving I removed the leftover gravy from the fridge and there was no layer of congealed fat in the container. No more skimming the stock & making a big mess while trying to make gravy or sauces. I love it.
We used it yesterday for the first time. Our old separator finally gave up the ghost after 20 years and this is the replacement. The plug in the spout kept the fat out and the large capacity was needed with the volume of liquid from the pan. Highly recommended!
