Exclusive Gravy Separator easily separates juices from fat in pan drippings. Removable
divider allows for easy cleaning and can be placed on either side for right- and left-handed users. Strainer easily catches unwanted residues, helping to make lump-free gravy. 4-cup / 1 L capacity is ideal for holding drippings from large roasts or turkeys. Remove divider to use as a measuring cup.

Use and Care
[return to top]
- Wash prior to first use; dishwasher-safe. For best results, remove divider prior to cleaning.
- Snap divider onto cup to secure. Make sure the divider is centered with the spout. Divider can be positioned at either spout.
- Position strainer on top of measuring cup.
- To separate fat:
- Loosen any stuck on particles in pan.
- Pour drippings through strainer of Gravy Separator. It may be necessary to gently stir particles in strainer to allow juices to flow through. Remove strainer, discard unwanted particles, set aside.
- Allow fat to rise to surface in cup. (see illustration #1)
- Pour off juices using spout with divider into a large measuring cup. Stop pouring before fat pours off with juices. Set aside. (see illustration #2)
- Remove desired amount of fat from Gravy Separator by slowly pouring fat from opposite spout into a separate measuring cup. Discard remaining fat. (see illustration #3)
Steps for making perfect turkey gravy (Yield: 3-1/2 cups)
- Cup is microwave-safe. Divider and strainer are not intended for use in microwave and are not microwave-safe.
- When microwaving foods or liquids high in fat or sugar content, such as butter or chocolate morsels, check the contents in the cup frequently to prevent overheating. These types of foods can discolor the surface of the cup if overheated. If discoloration occurs, it will not affect the function of the cup.
- Allow meat or poultry to rest for 20 minutes in pan before transferring juices to separator. This will increase the amount of drippings.
- The first step in making gravy is creating a roux (roux is a flour and fat mixture essential for thickening gravies or sauces). Pouring up to 1/4-cup / 60 mL fat off first saves time when making gravy.
- Pour 1/4-cup / 60 mL fat into roasting pan. Discard remaining fat.
- Add stock or broth to separated juices (if needed) to equal 4 cups / 1 L liquid.
- Position roasting pan over front and back burners on stovetop.
- Whisk 1/2-cup / 125 mL all-purpose flour into fat until smooth over medium-low heat.
- Gradually add juices, whisking until smooth.
- Increase to medium heat, stir gravy constantly, until gravy comes to a boil.
- Cook 2-4 minutes or until thickened.
- Season with salt and pepper. Using oven mitts, carefully pour gravy into serving bowl.
