This is the BEST device for separating fat out of gravy, soup, etc. I bought this about 3 years ago and it still works great!! Just pour gravy into measuring cup, LET SIT 5 MINUTES SO FAT RISES TO TOP OF CUP, then grasp handle and all the juices on the bottom run out. As the liquid goes down in the cup, stop squeezing the handle and the fat stays in the measuring cup and not in your gravy! DOESN'T LEAK! CLEANS EASILY!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I used this on Thanksgiving and it worked great, but the next time I used it, it leaked all over the counter and I lost all my drippings. I wish I had read all the reviews before. I am surprised that a quality kitchen store sells an inferior product. The glue just does not hold the ring on the bottom
I used this once worked fine, second time the nozzle popped off at bottom so all the fat went back into pot, the pin holding handle popped out, tried for half hour to fix it, my wife said i have to glue it back on, really ??? its brand new, why do I have to glue it, terrible ite
thank goodness I made it through Thanksgiving! I used it a second time and it spilled all over the counter because the lever broke moving beyond the stop gap that should have made a closed seal. I'm not even sure how it broke (aside from guessing that it's relaxed state is a position of tension and the plastic just doesn't hold). I am upset that there is another writer who reported the same problem also after only one use. I already bought three of these for Christmas gifts, and just praying that no one has problems with them, as it's too late to get something else in time to ship
Have owned two of these for almost 3 years and they're still going strong. These are the most precise at totally separating fat without a hassle. I've had no problems with leaking and no difficulty with keeping them clean using the dishwasher. These are the best value and unbreakable too.
I was so excited about using this for my thanksgiving gravy. Worked great for the gravy itself then I looked over at it sitting on the counter and oil was poring all down my counters. The bottom plastic portion had broken off after one use. Poorly made.
After ordering and loving the Easy-Release Grease Separator I ordered two more for my daughters. I wasn't told until after I tossed away my packing info that one of them was broken. I spoke with Cammie who immediately sent out a replacement and told me not to bother returning the broken item as it wouldn't be worth the shipping. Thank you Cammie and Sur la Table for your excellent customer service! I love your products and will definitely be shopping again soon with you. Susie
My daughter told me to check out your web page. I was very pleased to find many items not in local stores. Especially the 4 cup grease searator. We have roasts at least once a week. Of course all meats produce fat when browning. Of course gravy is a go with. This one is perfect size and bottom release lets out maximum brownings. I LOVE it. We look forward to our future purchases.
I love this product. The old separators that you pour from a spout that originates from the bottom have never worked well for me. I always get too much fat in with the drippings. This product eliminates this. I have only used it once but I haven't had any of the problems listed by other reviewers. Hope it lasts longer than some reviewers claimed. So far, so good
I've owned two of these. The first one worked about a year then the bottom gadget broke. Sur La Table was nice enough to replace it for me with no receipt. However the replacement has just broken today (less than a year later) while separating chicken stock. I had to quickly grab a bowl so that the broth and fat didn't go all over my kitchen. This time the red plastic thing on the bottom broke free resulting in my broth suddenly coming out non-stop from the bottom. I can't imagine why Sur La Table doesn't carry a better quality separator. You are extremely lucky if you use one of these and it doesn't break. I'm wondering if the type of plastic used on the bottom gadget is susceptible to heat damage. Unfortunately I do not have a receipt for this one so a return is probably not possible. And why would I buy another one anyway??? I'd have to be nuts!
Best Answer:I used it on Thanksgiving and found it perfect. Made the best gravy I have ever made and I loved how easy it was. You always have to judge when to stop so that you don't get the fat, but I never had a problem.
