Disclosure: I received this in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation or cohersion for a positive review occurred all opinions are my own.
So I have finally found my true cooking knight in shining metal, it defends me against all the things that splat and spray out of the pan while frying, saucing and all things poppy. At first I thought, ok well this one will be like any other one so what makes this special. Well I can sure tell you now its the metal rim leaving only a middle region meshy. The metal outside ring is perfect for all things that splatter out it keeps it clean and also prevents the super tiny micro burns all over my hand while cooking.
The nice coated handle means I don't have to use a giant kitchen mit to use it or burn my hand. Which is also a perk since I prefer gas stoves and catching a mit on fire has happened before... long embarrassing story that would have been a great youtube moment, anyways back to the product at hand. This is a must have for anyone who likes to fry meat especially bacon or likes to have a semi clean stove after making a red sauce... I love this enough I am buying one for each of my sisters. Great addition to the kitchen, definitely not a fab-gadget for the kitchen.
