Fat Magnet

Product number: 11642

As autumn approaches, our thoughts turn to warming casseroles and comforting stews to ward off the chillier weather. But the cheaper cuts of meat that make them so inviting have one thing in common – fat! We all know hot fat rises to the top, we also know that it solidifies as it cools down, making it easier to lift off – but who wants to eat cold stew?

Neatly shaped to reach right to the edge of pans or casseroles, pop a few ice cubes into the reservoir of the Fat Magnet before lightly touching it to the surface of your dish. As if by magic, fat solidifies in seconds, attaching to the aluminium bottom ready to be scraped off against the blades in the non-slip base.

Ergonomically designed in soft-grip, matt black for simple one-handed use, the Fat Magnet will soon become an indispensible tool in helping to keep winter fare as healthy as it is hearty.

"Nice idea but not great in practice"

star star star_border star_border star_border

I bought the Fat Magnet as I've recently bought a slow cooker and thought it would be an easy way to collect the floating fat from my dishes. I have used the Fat Magnet a few times now and it doesn't seem to work overly well; it takes quite a long time to skim the fat and doesn't get the majority of it - skimming with a spoon does the job just as well and doesn't take as long.

"Not up to scratch"

The idea was good but didn't measure up in practise. I found it very slow and cumbersome and have now reverted to the old fashioned method of a spoon and the fat magnet has been relegated to the back of the cupboard.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you'd been disappointed with the fat magnet. I'll be in touch shortly.

"I like it!"

I am trying to lose weight with a slimming magazine, so fat is banned. I am happily using the Fat Magnet on slow-cooked food and home-made stock. So far so good, I've had no problems; in fact I am amazed at how well it works. On the online photo it is being skimmed across the meat and vegetables but in fact I remove most of the bulky contents with a slotted spoon and then use the fat magnet on a flat liquid surface. (oh, and couldn't we all use a Fat Magnet for life, not just for casseroles?).
