Cooking oil is widely used by people especially for deep frying. Cooking oil cost can be expensive sometimes especially if you use healthier cooking oils. For example, avocado oil, palm oil, and corn oil are all suitable for deep frying since they can withstand high temperature which makes their smoking point high too. But there is no need for you to dispose of the cooking oil you used for deep frying once only. They can still be used as long as they are properly filtered. Here comes the function of a cooking oil filter.
When you are saving costs, there is no need for you to use expensive industrial or professional oil filters. Common household items such as cheesecloth or coffee filter can be used to filter used oil. All you need to do is let the oil cool down first before doing the process of filtering it. This is also for your own safety so as to avoid accidents. Next is to place the cheesecloth or coffee filter on the mouth of your oil jar. Then, slowly and carefully pour the oil over your strainer to remove extra particles. Store your strained cooking oil in a safe place so that you can use it next time.
