No rolls, but restaurant supplies have oil filter cones. Larger, like 10" cones, since they're for commercial systems, and the wire cone form is that size. Also various sizes of rectangular sheets.

Fryer Oil Filters / Holders / Test Paper Strips

What size do I buy, lol. What degree of sheerness?, lol. That should make for an interesting chat with the sales lady.

I should just go with using non-woven material to strain the oil, to drape into the funnel, if I can find some of that anywhere.
Just buy the cheapest knee-high hose you can find. They usually have a pair for .99 cents. Two filters each pack and they will stretch over the funnel.

Caslon, buy a package of kneehighs. Use one and then either wash or toss. Works like a dream.

How about cheese cloth? Double or quadruple up if not fine enough to catch all the bits.

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...
