Coffee filters are great for holding a handful of chips, popcorn or even a quick sandwich, cheaper than a paper plate or paper towel!

No big "C". Not necessary. Just tell yourself pork is pork. Whether it be bacon or salt pork or some other pork product.

I have even grabbed one for when I was pouring coffee and it splashed on my eyeglasses. No lint and did the job of cleanup very nicely.

I bought a pack of them to take to work, there are always boxes of crackers, bags of chips around. Coffee filters are perfect holders for snack food.

Good ideas for coffee filters! I've used them for fine straining, as others have mentioned, now I will have more uses for them.

But back to topic of clam chowder, I love it! There are some good ideas here for those of us who don't have access to fresh clams. Well, we have them here, but don't know as I'd buy them this far inland.

We use cone filters. If I did that to my food it would feel like a dunce.

I have a splatter cover I bought three or four microwave ovens ago. At least IT still works!
