This is a new addition to my kitchen. Since I have no access to a machine, I am using a grease filter that I purchased from Home Depot. It is a 6-inch square filter with a stainless steel mesh. It is lightweight, easy to clean, and keeps the grease from clogging the drain.
The grease filter has a few advantages over other brands, but the main one is that it works with any kitchen appliance. So for instance I can use it to clean my stove, which I have had for a long time, using a paper towel to remove the oil and grease.
So what does the grease filter do? It does one thing, and one thing only: Keep out grease. Since I use a grease filter, I will have to periodically throw out the old filter until I find a new one. The cost of replacing a new filter is $11.
With that, it makes sense that the grease filter works with only certain kitchen appliances. Not that it would be any less of a mess if you had to remove the filter to change a single appliance (a la cleaning). But if you had to do that regularly, a grease filter would save you money.
While it’s true that most filters are made of plastic, grease filters have a metal base and are meant to filter out grease and food particles. The grease filter is a must-have for any kitchen, except for the toilet, which is fine for me. I’m just lazy.
I recently read a review of a grease filter by a woman who claims she was able to save up enough money and buy a grease filter for just $10. It’s true that one of the best features of a grease filter is that it’s cheap (and actually makes the job of cleaning up a mess much easier), but once you have one, it’s hard to mess around with it. Plus, the more filters you have, the less of a mess you get.
I will admit that one of the best features of a grease filter is that it is cheap. In fact, most of the grease filters I have are cheap. The whole idea of a grease filter is to remove the grease from the bottom of your sink. Well, my greasy sink is in my kitchen, so I use a grease filter instead.
Grease filters are also easy to find. The most expensive ones are in the bathroom. You can buy them at any hardware store for about $10. I would recommend picking up a pair of those pretty colors that come in a pretty package, and then you have an automatic way to clean up your sink. I have one at the kitchen sink and one at the laundry sink. Plus I have a second one in the bathroom and one in the garage. It really does work well.
The grease filter is a one-way valve with a big black tube that you can just close and leave it open. It looks like a can of Coke, but it has a little plug on the top. It is the largest valve I have found with this type of plug. You can use it to turn on a tap, turn off a tap, or drain grease from your sink. It is also a great solution for those of us who wash our sinks every day.
If you have one of these grease filters, the pump to turn it on and off is under the sink. Otherwise, you’ll have to go for a grease rag and a spritz bottle. I have to admit that I don’t use this myself anymore. I just spray it on the sink and it works great. You can find it at any hardware store.
