You should send it back to them in a box.

That is, when I want to remove the flav... err, fat.

Michigan doesn't take returns? Or are you not from Michigan, Dawg?

Now that's a nifty idea Pac!
I have a really large separator I use for Thanksgiving turkey, but I hate to get it out and mess it up for a small amount of liquid/fat.

I came across that idea in a shortrib recipe I make now and then. Those babies have a lot of fat!
I have to say though, my mind thought of cupboard space when I looked at those separators yesterday. Wistful thinking I guess.

I wish Aunt Bea. My kitchen is the most mis-shapen thing around.

Might as well stick this under a recent "gadget" thread.
Check this thing out. I'm watching an infomercial on it right now. Stupid, low-budget infomercial, but if I lived somewhere that didn't allow me to have a grill... it does seem like a neat concept to utilize your stove burner. And Amazon even sells them

It has a vortex type hole in the bottom that allows the heat from your burner to pass up through. I'll bet you could even set a piece of hardware clothe on the vortex and put some soaked wood chips on it to give your food a blast of outdoor flavor. I almost feel like getting one just to play with

OMG! Did I just hear them say they cooked fifty chicken wings with it?!!!

Hah! I just saw that they already make a rack to set charcoal or wood on for flavor.
