Splatter screens may not be sexy, but as far as we’re concerned, they’re indispensable. We were painfully reminded of that fact when we first tested  some braised chicken recipes recently. The recipe involved browning chicken thighs in a skillet on the stove, and we neglected to top our pan with a splatter screen. Needless to say, we promptly got popped in the eye by a splatter of hot grease.

So whether you’re browning chicken, cooking your Sunday bacon, or frying soft-shell crabs, put a screen on that pan. It’ll keep your stove from becoming a greasy mess and prevent you from getting a nasty burn.
