Old thread alert..!!!
Hi everybody... This is my first post here, but a topic I'm passionate about. The method I find to be easiest is to pour to cooled oil into a wide mouth jar. Then I hold cheesecloth over the mouth of the jar (rubbeband/cooking twine). You can double the cheesecloth if food particles are too fine. Then sipmly pour oil into another wide mouth jar, leaving all debris behind.
Easy peasy tip from Cheezy...
