A skimmer is the kitchen tool you didn’t know you needed! Skimmers are often used in Chinese cuisine and are called spiders. They’re used to scoop foods out of hot broth and leave the liquid behind.
This version of a skimmer has much smaller holes and doesn’t have a wireframe like the Chinese spider. This skimmer would be great for scooping out congealed fat at the top of a pot or pan, or the oils that rise to the top of a soup. This is designed to be an elimination device that removes undesirable fats or oils. It may not be the best tool for scooping larger items out of a broth, that would be best served by a slotted spoon.
This skimmer is made out of stainless steel making it sturdy and reliable for all your cooking needs. Once you start using it regularly in your kitchen, your food will be healthier than you could achieve otherwise. When making a soup, keep an eye for puddles of oil at the top of the pot. Gently stick your skimmer in there and remove them. Your stomach will be happy to not ingest the excess oil and your skin will thank you!
For whatever floats at the top of your soup, this skimmer will be there when you want to remove it. And even if removing oil is not at the top of your concerns, you might be cooking for someone who is. You never know! And it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. Have you ever heard someone complain about being over-prepared or having all the tools they need? Trust us, this skimmer can certainly make a difference in your cooking and your diet and will definitely come in handy whether you expect it or not.
