If you love frying food in your frying pan but hate the fact it spits oil or fat all over the place then you may be interested in buying a splatter guard.
A splatter guard is placed over the frying pan to prevent unwanted splashes from the pan whilst frying at a high temperature.
Not only does it stop it spitting at you it also stops it covering your cooker/hob, walls and worktops with oil/fat making it easier to clean up after cooking.
