Surprisingly bigger than I thought.
I absolutely love this oil can. I use it to recycle bacon drippings to use in gravies and to saut�� veggies. It has a great sturdy strainer that easily handles a pan of thick cut bacon (8pcs) drippings without overflow. Definitely try it I guarantee youll love it.
I ordered this to filter and store the oil from my electric skillet. It is a good size compared to some of the others available, and the filter does a good job of catching residue from battered food that I fry. The size of the filter allows the oil to pass through relatively quickly compared to some of the narrower funnel type filters.
This can has a strainer, 2 liter capacity and easy to handle while cooking and cleaning up. Most grease containers are too small for my use and some dont even have a strainer. When I saw this one I immediately liked the way it looked, and it met all of my needs with a great price too!
I had a hard time deciding which size to get. I chose the smaller one. At first I thought it was too small to hold a full Fry Daddys grease content, and it was. However, I realized I should transfer that grease back into the bottle after straining. It does a pretty good job of straining the grease. So now I have it handy for bacon grease, and it is not too big to keep on counter.
This is a well-made piece of equipment. It can be fully-disassembled for easy cleaning. And the design of it makes it not an eyesore on your countertop if you want to leave the strained oil out for use again. If you deep fry and reuse your cooking oil, this but of kit is going to be a great addition for you.
Holds a lot of leftover cooking oil safely so that the oil cam be reused for additional frying or cooking. Very attractive silver metal color. Comes with its own metal saucer to place the strainer on. Easy grip handle for easy pouring the oil back into pan, skillet or deep fryer. The cover or lid keeps debris or airborne dust particles out of oil keeping the oil clean and safe to use again.
It is heavy and extremely well made. Should last forever. Would definitely recommend anyone to buy this product.

My grandmother always kept one of these oil pots in her kitchen. Its great for using oil more than once and it has a strainer that allows you to remove all the things you dont want in your oil from the previous use. I dont fry foods that often so this allows me to store the oil for the next time. The pot seems durable and is very light. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend to others.
This oil strainer is exactly what I wanted....does the job and is attractive. Easy to clean. It is a lot better than the one Mama had ontop of her stove for years. The holes on this one are more and smaller and let NO particles of food through them. It does what it is supposed to do.....STRAINS....
I make ghee/clarified butter at home and wanted to get a pot or jar of steel in which I could store and reheat in case need to melt ghee, and I finally found the ideal storage pot for that. I make ghee from four packs of 16 Oz butter from Costco and ghee made from those fit perfectly in this pot. Im so happy. Its usage is very convenient too. Loving it so far.
The 1.8 liter oil storage can was just what I was looking for; one of the few items that Ive never had in my kitchen and always missed when it came time to store cooking oil instead of just throwing it out. The smaller size is perfect for my home use and for cooking on a smaller scale. I dont deep-fry very often, but for when I do I now have a great way to store the oil for future use. The can and included strainer are simple and sturdy.
I remember as a kid that my mother always had a canister where she kept strained bacon drippings for cooking. With the future everyone is looking at now I decided to order this and also save bacon drippings and cook with them. Everything is becoming more expensive and I believe we will all need to change what we buy and use. This grease can is well made, not terribly expensive and I believe it will cut down on the other oils that I use for cooking and save me money.
I have a French Press coffee maker. So that I could put the used coffee grounds in the trash (across the room), I had to find something to strain the liquid out first. I was using a long-handled strainer over the sink, which was cumbersome and messy. This came up in a general search for strainers.
Took a chance and bought this to help reuse fryer oil and it works! Its well made and easy to use. Quickly processes oil through fine strainer. Simple. Good value. Pleasantly surprised with ease, functionality and quality build. This little device has streamlined this procedure and meets all our expectations.
We upgraded the type of cooking oils that we are using and wanted to recapture some of the oil. After studying and seeking stainless options, this seemed to be the best value for the money. It is...
GET THIS!!! If youre in need of a place to store your pan grease, then look no further. It is well made, comes with a handy tray for any drippings (just in case), the top fits very well, and the handle is great for transporting so that it wont slip out of your hands!!! Its my big, little blessing, and I am so excited about this functional, attractive buy! This is the one, yall! Im telling you... Hahaha!
