I had always wanted a way to save my oil after frying a batch of fried chicken wings and used a funnel and napkins to do so. I came up with an ingenious idea of doing so. I used two food grade containers and an aluminum strainer purchased from Amazon.




This thing was tiny and I could see good use of it if you were frying eggs or meat and wanted to save the oil. I deep fry so I use massive amounts of oil compared to frying eggs. I needed a way to do so.

Took two containers (Rubbermaid 7J72) and cut one hole inside the bottom of one container and the other hole in the lid itself. The containers snap together so it was convenient to choose this route. The aluminum strainer fit perfectly into the cut out. Works extremely well.
