K14164 - Prepology Set of 2 Foldable Silicone Splatter Guards
Bought these in 4/08 and use them all the time, great if I don't have a cover for a pan. Easy to store and no rust after all this time. Please bring them back.
PLEASE BRING THESE BACK. THEY WORK VERY NICELY IN THE KITCHEN AND THE CAMPER. I WANTED TO GET SOME FOR THE REST OF MY FAMILY ......BUT ALAS NOW I CAN'T. METAL ONES JUST DON'T CLEAN AS NICE AS THESE. METAL ONES STILL HAVE RESIDUE ON THEM AND RUST. THESE DONOT DO THAT....... PLEASE PLEASE BRING THEM BACK.
Easy care, really prevents splatters!
I have thrown out several metal splatter guards over the years that have rusted, fallen apart, and didn't clean well. These guards are easy to store, and clean up nicely in the dishwasher. They store easily since they have foldable handles. The square one fits nicely on a square Cook's Essential skillet I have that did not have a cover and did a good job when I fried sausage last night. As a previous reviewer mentioned, if you aren't careful the guard can close up suddenly so you would need to be especially careful if you were using it for something like pizza. I found that the best thing is to make sure that the part of the foldable handle that opens up is facing up when I put it on a pan and then it will still stay locked even if you squeeze the handle. This prevents it collapsing downward and closing. The two shapes make this set work for almost any pan. The construction seems solid so they should last, which makes it worth the investment.
I got these because of the folding handles. They stack/store nicely w/o the handles sticking out. I use them at home and in our RV. I have a 12" pan that doesn't have a lid and it fits perfectly.
Great Set - Love the Square One
I bought a square cooks essential pan and LOVE the fact that this set comes with the square splatter guard (it was a perfect match). They are easy to clean and store with the collapsible handles. I have recommeded these to many people and will continue to. Love the versatility of these. Good work Prepology!!
Good concept but.....
I purchased these a month ago and have regularly used them. They do the job and clean up easily, however the collapsible handles need improvement. Everytime I grab the handle it collapses due to the fact that you squeeze the handles to collapse for storage. This has caused a few accidents on my stove. Now wouldn't you think there would be a locking mechanism?????
I purchased this more because they said it could be used as a colander. Don't count on it. I made some macaroni in a large pot and tried to use it to drain. The handle easily collapsed so I had a lot of macaroni down the drain unfortunately. It may be great as a splatter guard, but don't purchase as a strong colander.
Couldn't be without them!
I love these! I use them all the time and love the way they store closed! You won't be disappointed with these!
love me my splatter guard
I think the splatter guards are great. Fold down handle is easy to store. easy to clean.Versatile used for pizza and cookies.
I love me some splatter guards.
Wonderful Splatter guards
While I haven't had a chance or a need to use the round one, I love the square one. This is the first time that I have ever seen a square splatter guard and it's about time that someone made one. It fits perfectly on the Technique 11" square hard anodized fry pan with bacon press giving me more uses for the pan. The splatter guards being silicone and easy to clean up is just icing on the cake.
Crispy Frozen Pizza Crust!!!
We aren't big fryers in my house, but we eat those little $1.00 frozen cheese pizza's. You know the ones! Well, I have tried putting them on the oven rack to get them crispy, but that's a huge mess. Foil, cookie trays, special pizza pans, I've tried them all. We tried cooking a pizza on these last night and I am now a true believer!!!
That cheap little pizza was fabulously crispy! I may buy another set in a different color for my roommate (just so he won't use mine!!!) Thanks, Prepology! Keep those modern marvels coming!!!!
Terrific Splatter Guards
I use to use the metal splatter guards, and hated them. When I seen these on QVC had to try them....How happy I did. Nothing comes through while cooking, especially cooking bacon. The fold down handles are a great idea because it is so easy to store them away. Hope they get more in, I want another set of red.
