Default Ideas for straining cooking oil.

My wife just finished the fried chicken.
While we don't usually cook it in oil, a pick grandson will actually sit down and eat with us when gramma cooks it this way.

Well, all fine and well on the background story.

I just folded a paper towel into a funnel (1/2 x 1/2 and open one leaf)... but was sure there was a better way? A fine kitchen sieve, A metal funnel and coffee filter?

What are your ideas. !

There are actual filters for such a thing.

I have used the filter that paint supply stores have. Conical in shape and fits a funnel.

I use a fine mesh strainer lined with a piece of cheesecloth.

I prefer not to use old oil for cooking a fresh non-frozen frying chicken. Why would I chance spoiling something as important as a fired chicken to save a few ounces of cooking oil?

i do not use plant based oils other than olive oil for cooking. things like crisco, canola, and other veggie oils are safely usable once. they also have an excessively low flashpoint and ruin good frying pans.

i use animal lard as it is stable at room temp does not go rancid if used over and over for several cooks.

but to strain bits out heat the oil past 100degrees before straining. i use a strainer like this

Ideas for straining cooking oil. - The Club House

put a paper towel in it and hang it over clean bowel or pan. pour in oil.

there are pricer dedicated devices but paper towels are cheap and they work

The traditional fried chicken was always cooked in pork fat. Americans have been convinced over the past 50 years natural fats are bad for your health.
We have been scolded and sold processed fat substitutes. Recent studies are proving that fat from processed sources are not better for general health. We are more often victims of commercialism than diet.
