      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

straining deep fat fryer oil

Recommended Posts

What do you use to strain your oil? I have used one of the battery powered units and was not real impressed, I have also used the cone filters. I am going to be buying another system (the battery powered pump went badd) I have not been impressed with the amount of time it takes to strain the battery operated ones or the clean up time.

Just looking for advice before I purchase another system, but am leaning towards the manual filter system.....seems quicker and easier.

Hey eyemaster, I strain my oil into a funnel that's lined with an automotive paint filter! They're clean, and the temp of the oil during the next frying kills any bacteria, they don't release strings or things. I've been doing this for the last 13-14 years and I'm still here to tell you about it. Stop into your local auto parts store (the kind that sells paint to body shops) and ask for some paint filters/ strainers. My local shop gives me 30 or 35 at a time, no charge. Phred52

When straining your oil this way, let me see if i am getting this right, after your done cooking, you let it cool down some then strain from your cooker thru the filter in the funnel to holders of some sort, gallon jugs or whatever and then how do you store it, if you doing it like i think do you put in the freezer or fridge?

Boilerguy passed on the pantyhose tip in this forum once, and it's worked for me. Might have to try the automotive paint filter.

Yep, The paint filter works great and then into the fridge. The oil will last a long time providing you don't overheat it and break it down. Phred52
