straining deep fat fryer oil

7 posts in this topic

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.

A great big funnel and some cheese cloth is about the fastest method and that way you can chuck the cheese cloth and only have to wash the funnel.

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?

I strain mine and put it back in the same container it came from and store it in the 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

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
