13 Recipes That Will Have You Frying Without Fear (or Splatters)

October 20, 2017

We’ve all been there. Toiling away at the stove, lovingly stirring a pot of ragu when the inevitable occurs: The tiniest bubbles emerge, breaking the surface of your beautiful sauce, making their way, well, everywhere. Your forearms, your backsplash, your floor—no surface is safe!

If you’ve ever suffered from the ill effects of stirring a piping hot tomato sauce, wilting a mountain of greens, or frying up chicken, you’re likely well aware of the renegade splatters that can ensue. A traditional splatter screen, while effective, prevents you from reaching into the cooking vessel. The Frywall’s flexible silicone funnel shape is great for its versatility in both pots and pans, and now, an exclusive-to-us icy grey version has joined the mix! Like the black version (which we're still offering), they come in a set of two to fit a range of pot and pan sizes. Throw them in your dishwasher for easy clean-up, roll them up, and store them away when you’re done.

From schnitzels to dumplings, burgers to doughnuts, we’re arming you with a host of Frywall-friendly recipes below. Crank up the heat and get cooking!
