Product Description

Product Description

Love to cook but tired of cleaning up the spatters and spots that inevitably end up all over your stovetop (and wall, and shirt…)? Well, Amco has your answer -- a spatter screen. Its rustproof 18/8 stainless steel handle keeps your fingers safely away from the hot pan, while its generously sized 13" round screen is perfectly sized for most frying pans and contains the little spits and spots that normally end up...everywhere. Use when sauteeing shallots, frying frijoles, and more!

Amazon.com

If you've ever ended an inspired cooking session with a big mess across the counters and stove to clean up, you should consider getting a splatter screen. For braising, sautéing, or reducing sauces, Amco's splatter screen really comes in handy, as it keeps the steam rising while keeping bubbles in and splatters under control. This contains the mess and lets you work at the stovetop over an open pan without burning yourself. A sufficient 12 inches in diameter, the screen fits over most pans, and its stainless-steel construction means it won't rust. --Shannon Borg

I've been looking for a basic splatter screen for a while now and this one is the best that I've seen. Others are so cheap that as soon as you try to clean them the screen comes out of them. Not with this one. Highly recommended.

The screen's very fine mesh does hold in the splatters; however, it also holds in the steam thus causing the food to steam rather than fry/brown. The screen needs to be removed from time to time to allow the steam to escape and the food to brown. The handle is very weak and not attached well. I am disappointed in the handle's attachment.

We do a log of pan-grilled meat, and this screen is the best we've ever used at keeping the splatters inside the pan. Highly recommended

UPDATE: I originally purchased this in November 2009. It is now November 2010 and this splatter screen is still going strong. It has stained but I haven't tried anything other than Dawn to clean it so maybe that staining would come off - it was stained when I sauted something in vegetable oil. Anyway, I use it about once a week and while it tends to bow a bit because of the weight of the screen, it is still intact and I am glad I bought it.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I have only used this a few times but I like it. It is large enough to cover my large 12-inch pans and is sturdy. I purchased it based on the Cook's Illustrated recommendation.

PROS: The screen is fine and adequate to keep most of the splatters to a minimum and is secured very well around the edge of the device. It is durable enough for the stove top or the oven. Cleaning is easy. Won Cook's Illustrated equipment test but still did not earn their highest rating (only "recommended" not their "highly recommended"). 13" diameter will cover any pan in your arsenal.

CONS: The handle feels very flimsy, almost like it could break off at any moment. Some splatters still escape, although not as bad as having no screen at all.

If I was to purchase another screen I might forgo this one and look more closely at the Amco Professional 13-inch.

I was tired of my stovetop having a thick layer of grease on it after cooking with my fry pan so I decided to splurge on this item. I checked on the Cooks Illustrated website and this brand and size was the one they highly recommended. I use it with my 12 inch All Clad fry pan and it fits it perfectly, but there isn't more than just a small fraction of an inch to spare so it's a good thing I wasn't intending on using it with a bigger pan. This screen is 13 inches (well, so close you might as well call it 13 inches) so I guess the measurements on my 12 inch pan must be measured on the inside of the pan and not including the lip around the edge which would explain why a 13 inch screen just barely covers my 12 inch pan.

So anyways I've used it a few times now and the only grease splatter I get now is from when I have the screen off to either add something to the pan or while flipping items. Obviously I can't blame the screen for what happens when it's not on the pan. It really does a great job and although it was pricier than the cheap ones I could pick up at a local store it was money well spent considering how much cleaner my stove top is now!

I read one review before making this purchase where another person mentioned the screen was too fine and did not allow steam to escape and the food ended up getting steamed and not seared. I've used it several times now for searing meats and I do not see any difference between when I use it and before I started using it.

Buy this splatter screen you won't regret it!

I hesitated on this for a while (did I really need it? would it really work?) until seeing it in action in my friend's kitchen. I've had occasion to use it twice since the purchase, and it works great! It really is very reassuring when you start realizing that oil is beginning to splatter all over your kitchen, to reach into the cupboard, grab this screen, and viola 97% of the splatter is eliminated!! This is top-rated by cook's illustrated for being the most sturdy (i.e., mesh won't break on you after one use!) and being of good size (enough for a 12" pan, I believe they said). Highly recommended, and once you have one, you'll wonder what you did without it!

Folks, this isn't a tennis racket and the handle doesn't need to be heavy duty. This screen DOES let out the steam- assuming it is clean. It has worked perfectly and is built well enough for its intended purpose. Treat it nice and it will last many years.
