Great Funnel, Great Buy, By J Keistler 'email@example.com'
June 25, 2009
Sometimes you just can't win. I've seen the other reviews whining that the included strainer isn't fine enough to catch all debris in leftover frying oil. Well, if Norpro had made the strainer finer, I'm certain we'd see people complaining that the strainer was too fine! This is a well-made funnel; I've had mine for years. Unlike plastic funnels, which never really feel clean after dealing with grease and oil, this one cruises through the dishwasher w/o problems. I have used the strainer for oil, but it is on the coarse side. However, I find this funnel works great with a Melitta #2 coffee filter, which I use for my small coffeemaker. I don't like using cheesecloth as it's a hassle. I'd suggest going to a coffee filter as an alternative. Additionally, I can pour hot oil after frying at a temp that would damage a plastic funnel.
A big funnel and worth the cost., By Ron Rudd

This funnel is bigger than I expected and for the cost it should have been. It is very nicely made with a very wide mouth and hefty material. It will hold a lot of liquid if you pour too fast but is very well balanced and has not yet tipped on me like other funnels do this is probably due to it's significant weight.
Could use a finer filter, By Lee Weinstein 'Lee'
November 6, 2006
I bought the funnel to put fry oil back in its bottles after each use. It turns out the filter that comes with the funnel is not nearly as fine as I would like for such an application. Otherwise, the funnel is fine. The side handle is useful.
