The Frying Tool You Need To Cut Down On Cleanup
If the fear of cleaning up splattered oil makes you avoid making fried food at home, buying a splatter screen may be a helpful choice. Also known as a splatter guard, this kitchen tool is typically made of fine metal mesh that's formed into a round shape and attached to a long handle.
To use it, all you have to do is place it like a lid over your frying setup on the stove. As you fry, the steam from the pan will escape through the fine mesh, but the issue of splattering oil will be minimized as the majority will stick to the splatter screen — and not to your stovetop.
After cooking, you can just slip the screen right into the dishwasher or give it a soapy scrub in the sink. You can also use a "frywall," which is basically made of a tall, silicone insert that slips right into your skillet and helps contain the splashing grease.
