Cut the fat!
With the OXO Good Grips Fat Separators
Features & Benefits
Constructed of heat-resistant plastic with heat-resistant strainer to catch unwanted bits
Stopper keeps fat out of the spout
Shield prevents gravy from spilling over the top
It's all gravy!
With the OXO Good Grips Fat Separator with its own strainer and stopper. Pour your gravy into the Separator and watch the fat rise to the top while lean gravy settles to the bottom. The heat-resistant strainer catches unwanted bits, and the stopper prevents fat from rising to the top of the spout. Once the gravy has settled, remove the strainer and the stopper and pour out perfect gravy; a shield prevents the gravy from spilling over the top of the Separator instead of through the spout. This heat-resistant Fat Separator has measurement markings for increased convenience and a non-slip handle for a comfortable, firm grip.
Available in 2-Cup and 4-Cup sizes

My recommendation is: Unless you do not have a huge amount of liquid, such as from big thanksgiving turkey, buy this 2 cups not 4 cups. Based on my experience, 2 cups is well enough for normal size of braising/roasting dishes. Moreover, if you have a huge amount of liquid, you just devide the amount into two batches and separate them twice. You have a flexibility to do so with this 2 cup separator but not with the larger 4 cup one.
After about five years of use, the black rubbery grip on the handle of my OXO fat separator fell off. It's possible to slide it back into place and use the cup as usual, but the grip no longer stays on by itself. I now store the grip inside the cup when not in use. Although I could contact OXO and might receive a replacement cup, I don't really mind replacing the grip each time I use the cup. I can't see throwing away something that still serves its purpose. "Use it up; wear it out; make it do or do without" has been my motto for years. Anyway - I changed my rating to four stars because of the inconvenience of the faulty grip.
Here is my original 2008 review:
I positively love my OXO fat separator! It holds a good amount of liquid, but not so much as to be difficult to pour. The lid helps strain out the solids, but if you want your broth to be absolutely clear, put a piece of cheesecloth over the lid.
IMPORTANT - the little black stopper MUST be inserted in the pouring spout before you add liquids to the cup or the fat will simply rise up in the spout. The stopper creates a vacuum, forcing the fat into the main body of the cup. When you're ready to pour, remove the stopper and the fat will remain floating in the body of the cup.
This cup is made out of high-quality plastic and washes up well in the dishwasher. It doesn't stain when you wash it with the tomato sauces! I've used mine for a couple of years and it's as good as new. I wouldn't make gravy or broth without it.
This is dishwasher safe, so it's easy to clean and I've had no problems with any kind of staining. The four-cup capacity is great, as well as the comfortable rubber handle. The raised area behind the spout helps you not to spill as you tilt the cup forward to pour. But, the best part is the little rubber stopper in the pour spout. Just leave it in as you pour in your stock. When you're ready to separate, just pull it out and the vacuum that was created doesn't allow ANY fat up into the pour spout. I was amazed!
The only reason why I gave this four instead of five stars is because of the strainer on top. The holes are really too large to be useful and I always place another fine mesh strainer on top (you could also use cheesecloth).
Overall: great quality, cleans up easily, and is large enough to be useful.
I think this is the best you're gonna get.
The only recommendation I would make is that I wish I had purchased the 4 cup model. The 2 cup unit fills up faster than I had envisioned and when you get to the point of being full it is easy to create spillage because it starts seeping into the top part. When you pour it can be a problem if you have filled it all the way up. I'd like to have some comfort room so when I get my time machine, I will go back and purchase the 4 cup one instead! :)
