The oil separator is a simple way to keep your pan from becoming clogged with condensation when you cook in it.
But while this handy device is great for cleaning up oil spills, it’s not always the easiest way to clean up spills.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make your own oil separators and show you why.
The basic idea is to first clean your pan of any grease that’s on it, like grease from grease traps and grease that might have accumulated on the pan.
Then, use a kitchen paper scraper or kitchen knife to remove any grease from the pan (don’t worry, we won’t be using any soap!).
We’re going to do this step by step and we’re not going to explain how to properly clean your pans and pans are usually cleanable by the time you’re done.
You’ll just be cleaning the pan with a toothbrush.
When you’re ready to use the oil separating device, simply press the end of the tool into the bottom of your pan and pull the lever to release the oil.
Now, what about the second step?
If you’re cooking in a high heat, like a frying pan, you may want to use this oil separatory device to help prevent oil from burning and creating clots.
But in most cases, it will be unnecessary, and the oil will remain intact.
