There is a certain level of maintenance we have in life to feel good about ourselves, part of that is making sure your stove top doesn’t look like a crime scene after heating up pasta sauce by wiping it down. You may tirelessly perform feat every every time you cook and derive some satisfaction from a job well done. If you’re one of these people, I envy you and your work ethic. But for people like me who want a clean stove with minimal effort, the FryWall is our best friend.
Its appearance is similar to that of an upside-down lampshade, in a pinch you may be able to put it around the head of your dog to get them to stop irritating themselves—don’t worry, it’s dishwasher safe. However, the FryWall is a silicone splatter guard that encompasses your pan or pot to keep sizzling food from splattering out. In addition to keeping your stove clean, the FryWall should significantly reduce your chance of getting burned by oil jumping out if the pan is too hot.
FryWall ranges in price from $22 to $30 and comes in four sizes 10” 11”, 12”, and 13”, though the 10” should be able to get the job done with most pans. It’s great for cooking ‘spillover’ if your pan is too small and can’t contain all the food within it, which helps if you’re if you’re prepping for a feast. The silicone is safe to cook with as it’s BPA-free and FDA compliant and can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The best part about it is it rolls up neatly and compactly making it easy to store.
Yair Reiner, the creator the FryWall, enjoyed cooking but the clean up afterward prevented him from doing it as often as he’d like. One day he made duck breast for his family with the splatter all over the stove. Two weeks later they urged him to make it again, Yair wanted to appease his family but was not looking forward to cleaning up, he comprised a proto FryWall out of tinfoil and it worked so well he thought he’d develop it further and keep cooking for his loved ones.
