I love to panfry my rib eye steaks. But because I cook at a high heat for a good, crispy sear, the pan spits fat everywhere. That’s why I got excited about the Frywall, an as-seen-on-TV–type of gadget—I’m a sucker for those—that’s basically a silicone funnel you place inside a skillet to catch flying oil while letting the steam escape. (No soggy food here.) 

I fried two rib eyes, and after close inspection, I found that only three tiny drops of fat had hit the stovetop. I’ll take that! It’s also great for stir-frying and cooking things that like to escape from the pan. (All eyes on you, spinach.) Did I mention that it’s BPA-free and dishwasher-safe and can withstand temperatures up to 450°F and comes in lots of fun colors? I think I might be a little bit in love.
