If you’re as “over” using paper towels to prevent microwave splattering as I am, this kitchen gadget (cooking tool, kitchen tool… whatever you want to call it) will put a smile on your face. It’s the Microwave Splatter Screen and I want to know where it’s been all my life.
Let’s be honest, microwave messes are just gross. Even when you place a paper towel over the top, you still get a mess half the time. With the Microwave Splatter Screen, however, you just place the reusable 13″ diameter mesh material over a plate or bowl and it catches the spatters. No need for waxed paper or paper towels. It’s weighted (see the little red weights?), so it’ll stay in place.
It’s stain-resistant and easy to clean (you just wipe it off). If you’re concerned about the environment and try to “live green” in your kitchen, amongst other places, you’ll love the thought of using less paper towels and waxed paper. I know the thought floats my green boat.
You’ll also love the price… less than $5.00. Sweet.
