A fat separator is a handy tool for degreasing the pan juices from a roast. There are dozens of models, most of them variations on the same design: a cup with a spout at its bottom that allows you to pour off the juices and leave the fat in the cup. The downside is that there’s always some fat in the spout that gets poured out with the juices. This model, the Amco Easy Release Fat Separator, has solved that problem by eliminating the spout. The fat stays on top while they juices drain from a hole in the bottom of the cup, which is opened by squeezing a lever in the handle. It also includes a strainer lid, to prevent bits of turkey skin from ending up in your gravy.

    Can it be used as a pancake batter dispenser as well? Looks very similar.

    My sister gave this to me as one of my Christmas gifts a few years ago. It is nothing short of AMAZING! It is incredibly easy to use, it stands up to the very, very, hottest liquids... AND!!! I set it in the fridge after using it and the next day, Voilá! The fat has solidified, making for a much tidier disposal and I scrape off the remaining "gelatin", tossing it in the leftover gravy which makes it richer and tastier! So, in answer to Chefin1950, it holds up beautifully! I am now the Gravy Queen of the family! :)

    By far the best gravy separator I have used. The plastic is very hard and stands up well to heat.
