An Overview On Splatter Screens

Hate all those grease marks over your stove? Have you ever been burned by splattering grease while cooking? What you need is a splatter screen. This is one of those kitchen gadgets that doesn’t get the limelight but provides a lot of value to home cooks.

A splatter screen is designed to catch any drops of grease that fly out from the pan while cooking. Whether you’re searing steak or salmon or stir-frying up peppers and onions, some grease is bound to rise up when the ingredients heat up in the pan. If you don’t enjoy having to wipe grease off your stove and want to ensure you don’t get any grease burns, then topping your pan with a splatter screen can save the day.

Splatter screens are quite simply designed. They have a mesh screen that is stretched across a metal circle frame. They also have a thin metal or plastic-covered handle. The genius of the product is that the mesh allows the steam to escape while keeping the grease in the pan. This way, the splatter screen doesn’t affect the cooking process. All it does it keep the mess contained.

When you’re looking for a splatter screen, pay attention to the kind of material it’s made out of. Most commonly, splatter screens will have a wire mesh, with a rim made from aluminum, stainless steel or silicone. While aluminum and silicone should be hand-washed, stainless steel can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Keep in mind the aluminum is prone to rust, while stainless steel will remain rust-free. Silicone splatter screen can be used as counter trivets in addition to their primary purpose.

DWYM Fun Fact

If you have many different sized pans you want to use a splatter screen with, then opt for a guard that comes with stabilizing rings. These built-in rings are designed to ensure that the splatter screen doesn’t fall off the pan. The raised ridges hug the pan’s outer edge for better balance and safety. This is especially useful for those who don’t want to waste storage space on multiple splatter guards.

Like pots and pans, the handles of the splatter screen are almost as important as the screen itself. Handles allow for better maneuverability and control. Silicone handles offer comfort and security because they are non-slip. Plus, they can be exposed to high heat and remain cool to the touch. Some splatter screens come with foldable handles, which make storage a breeze. You can also find knob handles on the center of the splatter screen, which provides more storage options.

The Splatter Screen Buying Guide

  • When you’re looking for a splatter screen, make sure that the size of the gadget fits your pans. You don’t want to buy one that’s too big, as it will slide off the pan. A small one will just fall into the pan and you’ll end up with a lot more grease flaring up. The Bellemain Splatter Screen has a 13” diameter, as does the BergKoch Grease Splatter Screen for Frying Pan, which is also available in 9.5, 11.5 and 15-inch sizes. The Calphalon Splatter Guard has multiple size options within the same pan. It can be used on 8, 10 and 12-inch pans without slipping off. The BitimexHome Grease Splatter Screen for Frying Pan comes with three different guards, so you can use them on 8, 10 and 11-inch pans.
  • If you don’t enjoy scrubbing grease off your dishes, then opt for a splatter screen that is easy to clean. You want to make sure that the grease can be removed from the guard quickly and simply. The Bellemain Splatter Screen can be placed into the dishwasher or wiped down easily with a cloth. The BergKoch Grease Splatter Screen for Frying Pan is also dishwasher safe, while the Calphalon Splatter Guard needs to be wiped down by hand.
