Easier. Faster. More exact: FatPads replace fat skimmers, separating pots, kitchen towels …

Takes just seconds to absorb surplus fat from your food. Ideal for a healthy, low-fat and low-cal diet.

Just remove your food from the frying pan, deep fat fryer, oil marinade and simply place on a FatPad. Surplus oil and fat are absorbed in a jiffy. For soups, sauces and stocks: Remove the pot from the cooker and place a FatPad on the surface of the food. It takes no more than 20 to 30 seconds for the fleece to absorb the fat swimming on top. Then simply remove without losing one drop of stock or meat juices.
Putting an end to tedious (and inaccurate) skimming. You won’t waste time separating the layer of grease. No clumsy use of separating pots and certainly no stripping with fat magnets that first need to be cooled in the freezer.
Beats kitchen towels hands down.
FatPads are not paper. The food-safe fleece is made of 100% polypropylene: Without bleaching agents, additives, dyes or other substances that might come into contact with your food. Also: FatPads only absorb surface fat, leaving water and other juices untouched. So nothing softens, flakes off and sticks to your food.
Crispy meat dishes, chips and pastries, etc. are entirely fat-free in an instant.
Everything remains juicy on the inside, crispy on the outside and altogether scrumptious.
FatPads absorb hot and cold oils and fats (up to a maximum of 140°C). Simply throw away with your domestic waste.
Certified by TÜV Rhineland*. Available as a 28-part set or as a roll.

Fat and oil are important flavour enhancers.

They are just as essential in preparing culinary delicacies as they are in roasting, baking or deep fat frying. But once the food is prepared and the aromas and vitamins contained in the fat have dissolved, they also make your food a little heavy, taking away from the pleasure you would otherwise have. So it is highly recommended to remove the fat on soups and sauces, the oil from deep-fried meats, prawns and chips, also frying fat from steaks, fish, cutlets, fish fingers and potato fritters and the oil from marinated antipasti, fish, garlic and vegetables…

They trusted FatPads on board the MS EUROPA, too.

The challenge facing the crew was to prepare a buffet for 450 people, serving fried foie gras without knowing when the guests would collect their portions. The high fat content in foie gras makes it extremely tender and tasty, but also difficult to fry and even trickier to keep warm. The solution was to line a wok with FatPads and to keep it on a moderate heat setting. The fried foie gras stayed warm and dry. The otherwise unpleasant surface fat was absorbed. The professional chefs overseeing preparation were entirely thrilled.
