This separator work well.

I really wanted glass despite the safety claims of some of the plastic options and I find this one sturdy.

This Catamount Fat Separator is heat proof, flame proof, microwave save, and basically very durable.

I found surprising amount of positives for this cup. My old plastic one is cracking from use, plus I'm converting to all glass. LOL @ myself when I opened this 4-cup Fat Separator and Strainer by Catamount for not attending to the size before ordering. (Twice the volume, only $5 more than 2-c.) My 1st thought, "was this for a commercial kitchen, or entire military division?" Yet, the more I think about my old separator, about same size as Pyrex 1-c., always difficult to use (aim at) & opening too small to pour more than a narrow stream into it from my roaster. For big jobs (Thanksgiving) it didn't hold enough. Except for finding a place to store this monster, it should end up a really good choice.

Good points:
*GLASS:
HEAT RESISTANT glass- won't melt. If not exposed to sudden temp changes, hot fat won't cause it to break. WON'T CRAZE like plastic. Surface WON'T PIT or get rough over time.(like where tea stains settle in other brands of measuring cups.) CHEMICALS WON'T LEACH into food, even with hot liquid. LIGHTWEIGHT (but tough). EZ TO LIFT WHEN FULL, ez on joints. EZ TO CLEAN OFF GREASE better than from any plastic.
*CUP:
TWO MEASUREMENTS TYPES on side (up to 4 cups, metric)in small enough increments. EZ TO PLAN RECIPE's other ingredients. CLEARLY VISIBLE. OK IN FRIG/MIC, if needed. TALL, no bending over to see what I'm doing while pouring hot liquid. HOLDS A LOT. LARGE OPENING to pour in a wider stream of liquid in the separator instead of on the counter.
*SPOUT:
AT BOTTOM making it more likely that only the good stuff pours out. NOT BENT so no food can get hung up there and EASIER TO CLEAN OUT, esp w/tube brush. LONG SPOUT so far enough away from the cup (more than most) no need to be over/near a hot pot while pouring separated contents.

This separator work well. Used a plastic model before and it broke, tried again same results. The glass model is heavier and better made.

The thin glass spout alerts you to be VERY careful. This Catamount Fat Separator is heat proof, flame proof, microwave save, and basically very durable. Just don't change the temperature too quickly from really cold to very hot. And, of course, no dropping on your marble counter top or floor. It works ideally. Follow simple instructions and you'll see how easy it is to separate fats from juices so you can get on to making gravy or pot & pan clean-up.

It works well and my only issue is that the milk easily can over flow if you fill it past the marks on the cup.

Seems alright other than the fact that the spout dribbles. Not sure why they couldn't design the spout better, it seems a pretty basic design component.

I can only review this as a teapot because that's what I thought it was when I first got one and that's how I use it to this day.

Forever I was looking for a teapot that had the measurements printed on it so that I didn't have to have a bunch of different sized teapots. Instead of lugging out my 30 oz teapot when I wanted to make that much tea and my 10 oz teapot or the 16 oz or 25 oz teapot when I needed to make THOSE amounts... I just wanted one teapot that would allow me to measure just how much tea I was making. Then one day I received this as a gift and thought it was my dream teapot! Except the lid was weird. It looked like the lid was also a tea strainer which was handy but not good for keeping heat in, so I used another lid, but other than that it was exactly what I wanted. Now I only have my porcelain 35 oz teapot and have gotten rid of the rest. When I need only 18 oz, I can make only 18 oz in this and then use the strainer lid it comes with to catch the tea leaves while pouring. No wasting of tea or water and I get nice already strained tea in my porcelain pot in just the right amount.

After 2 years of using it, I accidentally dropped it on a ceramic tile and it broke so I needed a new one. I searched all over amazon for a replacement, but I couldn't find a teapot with measurements on it. I was so upset. Eventually however, during my search this "fat separator" somehow came up and I realized it was my teapot! I had no idea all those years that what I actually had was a fat separator. Why would anyone want to separate fat? I'm not really a cook though so... Anyway I repurchased it and am as happy as ever using it as a teapot.

I have no idea how to separate fat with this thing.

I have owned a few separators in the past but they have been plastic and they all start to spiderweb (show cracks) and then I end up tossing them and buying another. This is a glass item and if handled carefully should last a long time. The only reason I took a star off is because it doesn't come with a stopper for the spout. This allows some grease to enter the dispensing tube. I will end up finding one eventually but all of my old ones came with a stopper so I assumed this one would too.
