If your kitchen skills are similar to ours, you’ll frequently find yourself faced with a pan full of grease, wondering what to do with it. You have several options.
You could wait till it gets dark and dump it over the neighbor’s fence (our favorite).
Or you could get yourself some Absorb Ease sponges.
These disposable pads are essentially a very thick paper towel. You toss one in the pan after you’re finished frying and it soaks up all the grease. Then you simply slide the sopping Absorb Ease into the garbage. (Or frisbee it at some trick-or-treaters…it’s your call.)
Absorb Ease was invented by Gary Allen, a real estate agent who hit on the idea after cooking hamburger meat for sloppy Joes.
The pads cost $17.35 for a pack of 64. The shopping channel QVC thought they were a good enough idea to feature them on TV awhile back.
We think they’re a neat invention too. And we wish Allen luck. We assume his career shift came in the nick of time. Because, after all, if the guy’s eating sloppy Joes for dinner, how good a real estate agent can he be?
