If you spend far too much time wiping up oil splashes on your stovetop, it’s certainly time to pick up a grease splatter screen. Not only will the cooking tool make cleaning up after a meal way easier, but it’ll also prevent potential oil burns on your hands. Fortunately, Amazon shoppers have ended your search for the best option before it even began.
The BergKoch Grease Splatter Screen comes highly recommended by customers, with nearly 12,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. The stainless steel mesh screen simply sits across your pan, releasing steam while keeping any oil from flying out during the cooking process. Depending on the length you choose (it comes in four sizes, starting at 9.5 inches), the grease screen can fit a variety of pans, including cast-iron and wok pans.
The extra-fine mesh design typically only needs a quick rinse before being transferred to another pan, and it’s dishwasher-safe, which comes in handy when you want to give it a more thorough clean after a few uses. What’s more, the multifunctional cooking tool also acts like a strainer and steamer, and the narrow design makes it a breeze to store in smaller kitchens.

Amazon shoppers swear by the sturdy and heavy-duty feel of the BergKoch splatter screen, with one reviewer calling the product “a godsend for my kitchen.” Others noted how effective it is when cooking super greasy foods, such as bacon and steak.
“It keeps all the oil in the pan instead of on the stove and my arms and hands,” wrote one shopper. “We cook chicken, turkey, beef, and salmon, all with mediterranean oil and it can get messy pretty fast! But this stops the oil and grease from popping. It's also easy to clean — I just wash everything by hand. It protects the cook and the kitchen from burns and mess.”
“This is the BEST splatter screen ever! I ordered the large one first and loved it,” said another. “These splatter screens are super sturdy and much better than the cheap ones at the big box stores. Plus, the mesh is great as the entire product is made of stainless steel. I don't think you will be disappointed!”
