Simple alternative to EZMelt for shortening filtration.
If your budget does not allow for an EZMelt filter, the Filter-Flo is a good alternative.
You will need a receptacle to empty the shortening into. It should be metal, not plastic, and it should have no seams. If it has seams (like a bucket) it could leak. If it is plastic, it could melt.
A Hotel Pan or a Mixer Bowl will work. Both should be large enough to hold all the shortening in your fryer. Filtration takes 15-30 minutes.
