Love it
I bought this product several years ago and use it at least weekly so I know it is extremely durable. It still looks like new after hundreds of washings. I use it to save good oil and I love the strainer. I wish they offered a larger size though; I would definitely purchase it.

Love this!
This oil strainer pot is exactly what I needed to make it easier for me when frying foods. I used to use cheesecloth but now I use this pot.
Aug 12, 2016
Works great
This strainer helps me save good oil for another day.

Exactly what I was looking for
This is exactly what I have been looking for. I have needed it for about 3 years and it works great.

Found! At last
My mother had one of these and I have been looking for years but with the concentration on more "healthy" diets this is the first I've seen in years. Extremely pleased the way it looks on my black stovetop on a shiny black saucer. The mesh easily lifts out for cleaning. No cons to report. Delivery was faster than I expected. Very pleased. Would happily recommed.

Just Like Mom and Grandma Version
Despite people are cutting back on using cooking grease, you still need storage for cooking grease. You will be surprise that the young people working in stores didn't know what I was talking about. Like I say for years, if can't find the item at the Goodwill, Salvation Army, Second Hand store, or estate sell; go on the internet. Thank you Harriet Carter for having this item. No more saving glass jars to storage cooking grease. The strainer is works well. Please continuing to sell this pot because I told everyone I purchased the item from your website. Plus the pot looks better sitting on my stove.

Love the Oil Strainer! Great Product!
Great Product. Just wish it was a little larger for straining more grease.

Oil Strainer Pot
One of our favorite snacks just happens to be French fries. After the oil cools, we pour it through the strainer pot and it is clean and ready to use again. A quick wash and dry and the pot is just like new. What a cost savings! I couldn't be more pleased. Attractive enough to sit on my window shelf in the kitchen and one of the most useful gadgets I've purchased in a long time.

I would buy this again
I have been looking for one of these...
Mar 02, 2016
Looooove It! Just a little lighter weight than I would like.
I especially like the strainer.
Jan 17, 2016
Was a gift I am sure they loved it.
Jan 07, 2016

It's easy to clean

i wish it were half again larger

Oil Strainer
wish it was heavier and the lid was more snug fitting but it's okay

Oil Strainer Pot
I'm glad someone finally put this on the market. I've been using a strainer forever and it's inconvenient. This is the answer! The amount of oil is the minimum used in my deep fryer. That's ok; can pour it back into the oil container. Works perfect!
Jun 14, 2015
serves the purpose
Keeps used grease readily available!
May 09, 2015
not an airtight lid
what good is this if the lid is not airtight. it just sits on top like it doesn't fit at all
Mar 09, 2015
Somewhat effective; small
At only 32oz capacity, make sure you have an extra bowl handy to dip your strained oil into, as this cup only holds a maximum of 32 oz at one time, which is considerably less than the capacity of a typical household deep fryer . The mesh strainer does not seem to filter small particles effectively, as the strainer wires tend to be larger spaced than what is desired
Nov 24, 2014
Great Product
Large capacity, full top strainer. Stainless steel. Fast delivery.
Nov 19, 2014
Stainless steel vs aluminum!
I wish it was twice the size.

Oil Strainer Pot
Have been planning to order for some time. This strainer is like something I remember growing up with, sitting on the family stove. It looks much better than a coffee can and is better looking.
Nov 16, 2014
Does a great job!
Great for straining bacon grease, which is useful for maintaining and cooking with cast iron skillets, and for flavoring green beans, and with lid, can easily store in the refrigerator. Great product, thank you!
Nov 13, 2014
too small for what I needed
too small, ended up getting rid of it. should have listened to my gut-feeling.
Oct 28, 2014
I would buy again
I so badly needed a oil grease can. And with this one it separates the grease from the oil. In which now I can use a little bit of the oil in my pans for other cooking things as well
Jul 15, 2014
Works great
This works great. I tried the porcelain ones, but these are much better.
Apr 09, 2014
This is what I wanted
As I had hoped this one is larger than the one I have. It is a nice size and I like that it has a handle.
Mar 26, 2014
"I would buy this product again"
I bought 2 oil strainer pots, one for me and one for my daughter and she love her's like I love mine.
Mar 08, 2014
loves love love
It is prefect for me. I have been looking for something like this for years. I am so happy I found it. Thank you so much.

Much better
I like the product. I have no complaints as of now.
Dec 18, 2013
Great little tool.
This little tool is awesome. Strains great. Cleans easy. I read the reviews before I bought this little gem and can only say that 36 oz is 36 oz. It's a great addition to my kitchen.
Dec 07, 2013
Perfect for what I wanted, bacon grease. Not be used to dump a deep fryer into it. If people would read the info they could figure that out. Besides, that's what they make O.J. cartons for.
Dec 07, 2013
Perfect for what I wanted, bacon grease. Not to be used to dump a whole deep fryer into it, that's what they make O.J. cartons for.
Dec 04, 2013
I thought it would be a lot bigger. This
This pot is way too small. Looks a lot bigger on paper
Nov 17, 2013
just perfect
This was just perfect for what I wanted. Love the fact it has a handle. My last one didn't. Once you poured your hot oil in it, you couldn't pick it up and move it.
Nov 14, 2013
Too Small
I have a small individual deep fat fryer and the pot wouldn't hold even the amound of oil from this small appliance. I probably wouldn't have bothered to order a second one except that I did like the strainer that is easy to remove and clean.
Oct 14, 2013
Oil Strainer Pot
I have been looking for a strainer for my oil and this was the best I could find. Need one like the olden days that said Grease Can. It was fantastic.
Sep 25, 2013
product is not "air tight"
This product said it was suppose to be "air tight" and it isn't. The lid just sits on top of the container. It doesn't even lock in place. It's actually too big for the container and it kind of just slides around.
Aug 30, 2013
Product is not what i expected it to be
was going to use this to store the oil out of my deep fat fryer but its not even close to being big enough
Aug 12, 2013
Too Small
Oil pot is too small. The strainer is to shallow. If a person pours the oil too fast it could knock the strainer off from the pot. The strainer doesn't lock onto the pot. I am returning it.
Aug 09, 2013
Excellent Product
Purchased 2 - one for canola oil one for vegetable oil. Have been looking on line for a while and the prices were high. Came across the Harriet Carter website and was happy to find this product and the reasonable price. It is a good quality product and large enough to suit our needs.
Jul 29, 2013
Does the job
I brought this to replace the previous one I had for years. There was nothing wrong with my previous one, I just wanted a new one.
Jun 25, 2013
A must for my kitchen
I love it. Friends and family love the oil keeper as well. I've given them as gift as well. They last for years and years and years.
Jun 05, 2013
compact size
very nice; been looking for one but kind of thought it might hold more; other than that it foots the bill.
May 02, 2013
just what i've been looking for,
great product, been looking for this for a while, mom had one growing up.
Apr 20, 2013
been looking for one
good value, well made
Apr 19, 2013
Love it
I love to season and cook with bacon grease, and this is perfect for straining out the bacon particles. I've had one for years, but mine got lost in my latest move - I've looked high and low for another for months, and thanks to Harriet Carter, I now have a new one...I'm a happy camper.
Mar 19, 2013
returned it
Holds only 16oz. Returned it.
Mar 01, 2013
ad says "air tight seal" this is NOT the case. the lid just sits on top.would like the strainer to clip on instead of sitting on top also.
Feb 24, 2013
I would give this product for gifts
I use this product every day. My kids saw it and wanted one so I ordered these for them. I like that it has a strainer to strain out the fats. Very nice looking sitting on my stove.
Jan 23, 2013
Highly Recommended
We use the oil strainer pot almost every day, and we are able to use the left over fats for cooking. The strainer does an excellent job of filtering the oils and fats. Our daughter and son-in-law were impressed and wanted to know where to buy one, so we are sending this product to them as a gift.
Nov 17, 2012
Misleading Description
Appears to be stainless steel and it certainly has a mesh strainer... other than that not really what I was hoping for. Should've noticed the change in picture. Lid fits on flush but is NOT even remotely air tight. Also there's absolutely no spout. It's basically just a container for oil with a handle. Could've strained and stored on my own.
Oct 23, 2012
perfect strainer pot
very stable and easy to clean
Aug 13, 2012
enjoying pot, however I wish spout was a
enjoying the purchase, however I wish spout was a bit larger
Jun 29, 2012
Great Stainless Steel Addition
Looks great with our remodeled kitchen. No more greasy jars sitting next to stove.
Apr 21, 2012
Excellent product.
I keep meat grease to season vegtables and make gravy. This strains the grease and stores it in a handy container - ready for use any time. I liked it so well I purchased two other ones as gifts for Christmas.
Mar 30, 2012
If you don't like it, don't buy it
another item i bought thru you and have been satisfated with the results. thank you. john
Mar 26, 2012
sometimes simple is the best!
It makes my room mates job easier in the kitchen
Mar 26, 2012
perfect it meets my needs
great container for used cooking oil
Mar 26, 2012
Works as it should
The product is as said it to be, If yo need a grease pot this one works well. Shipping was early then estimated. Good Job
Mar 11, 2012
Very useful item
I use this as a grease strainer. Its very hard to find one in the stores here in virginia. I love it . The only drawback is that I wish the strainer itself was a litte deeper. The strainer on top is too flat.
Mar 06, 2012
Good Product
This oil container is a good way to store used oil from frying, and it is safer than using cups and other containers because it is aluminum so it holds hot oils very well and filters out residue.
Mar 06, 2012
It's just what I was looking for!
It keeps my drippings handy for seasoning, etc. I love it.
Dec 05, 2011
Good product
I have a oil pot just like this, which I've had a a few years now. My Daughter wanted one so I finally found her one at Harriet Carter, The lid is not air tight but that doesn't matter. Nice wide opening and a lift out strainer,easy to clean. Mine still looks good after all these years of use. Don't let the size fool you, this pot can hold alot of bacon grease or oil.
Nov 30, 2011
So very happy that I found it.
It does just what I need.
Nov 13, 2011
Good product for storing grease.
I've had my Oil Strainer Pot for a very long time. I am ordering one for my daughter. Good product has a strainer inside,which is great.I like the fact that the strainer is removable and is easily cleaned. The entire pot is easily cleaned. Sturdy,wide opening easy to pour hot grease in the pot,not to mention it looks good in my kitchen. I don't agree the lid is air tight, it sits on the pot. But over all a very good product.

Oil Strainer &Storage Pot
I purchased this item to strain & store bacon grease.Somewhat disappointed that the lid just seems to hover on top.Does not fit tight and cannot be air tight as advertised.Other than that it is ok and may serve the purpose.The jury is still out.I'm still looking for one with tight fitting lid.
Oct 22, 2011
Very Handy
I have looked for this for a long time. Most are to small.This one is just right.
Oct 21, 2011
I love this!
I love this because I had nothing to pour the excess oil from my skillet! It even looks so much nicer than what I had before! The price was affordable!
Oct 07, 2011
a product every one needs in their kitch
Everyone should save thier bacon grease for seasoning anc cooking. This is a product that many do not know about but once they have one they will never again be with out one.
Oct 01, 2011
i would buy this again very helpful
very helpful in kitchen area
Sep 04, 2011
Glad I purchased this product.

Apr 23, 2011
oil strainer pot wonderful
I like it cause I can keep it out . The only thing I don't like is it is not big enough
Apr 10, 2011
Does its job
I use it to strain oil. I wish the lid would snap on. It falls off easily.
Apr 07, 2011
Nice strainer, too bad it's so small
Doesn't hold the amount of oil required to fill my deep fry cooker. According to the specifications of the strainer and deep fryer it should work, what is up? still a good item for my wok, most likely give up my deep fryer and use my wok. Don't read the specification, they are worthless at best. D.R.
Mar 09, 2011
Price a little high but a great product!
I got tired of using coffee cups to hold the bacon, hamburger, and any other "dirty" grease from cooking. This strainer holds alot of grease so you don't have to clean it out as often as a coffee cup. You can also use this Strainer for grease that you use for frying "clean" grease, such as french fries, corn tortilla's, or any other product that doesn't create particles when frying, such as fried chicken or any other breaded foods.To me, the price is a little too much.
