This replaces a metal spatter screen, and I don't know how many I have had, but they always rust. This one is easy to use, easy to clean and since it's completely covered, I am hoping it won't rust. I like that you can open only half and stir or turn. It's great for spaghetti sauce! I love that I can toss it in the dishwasher.
This is exactly what I was looking for and better. It keeps my stove top free from grease. It makes my life a lot easier. I no longer have to spend hours cleaning the grease build up on the top of my stove. This help save my hands and nails from harsh chemicals and water. Thanks!
We really needed a new splatter screen as ours was 20+ yrs old. This one looks really practical as it folds in half to allow access to what you are cooking without removing the whole screen. Can't wait to use it!
Best Answer:No, it will not melt when it touches the pan as it is made of silicone, not plastic. However, you will need to use an oven glove or kitchen towel to hold the handles as they do get hot. Hope that this is helpful.
Best Answer:virtually nothing comes through these holes, however, there is a more important consideration when using this "screen". Because the top is more dense, it acts as a cover as well as a screen, so you must consider how it will effect the cooking of the food in the pan as well as the heat & moisture that collects on it's underside. If you need a screen for a dish that should not have a normal pot cover during cooking, then this item is a bad choice. I like my Kuhn Rikon screen, but find I am using it differently than I expected.
I have had the same experience with mesh splatter screens. The Rikon performs as advertised -- very little spatter gets through the holes as long as the screen is in place. Of course once you lift the screen to flip or stir the contents of the pan -- well, you know what happens.
Not much, which is good, because there are fewer holes for the splatter to get through. But the downside of this is that the silicone also acts as a lid, so your food cooks through. Example, if you're sauteing chicken breasts, the top side cooks, too, missing out on the sear.
Best Answer:Although I've only used the splatter screen for frying bacon, I was surprised at how much condensation had formed on the side closest to the bacon. When lifting one side of the screen to turn the bacon, that moisture then fell into the pan and sizzled, then splattered. However, the bacon browned nicely.
