Fat Separator With Strainer
The spout on a fat separator is positioned low so that when the fat rises to the top, only the rich juices pour out from beneath it. The Williams-Sonoma Gravy Separator, made of laboratory glass, has an extra-fine strainer that catches bits of food when you pour in pan drippings. Available in two-cup and four-cup sizes.
