Nonstick Splatter Guard
I think little flecks of grease, meat particulates, and cake batter splattered all over the walls and cabinets add to the shabby chic aesthetic of my kitchen. Why be so sterile and hoity-toity? I want to welcome everyone into my home, and make them feel comfortable. My friend Cornelius, my girlfriend's parents, the 975,000 fruit flies that will inevitably hatch to eat the remnant specks of bacon fat as soon as the weather here settles into hot-as-balls for the summer....
This nonstick splatter guard from Norpro might be a little more cumbersome to set up and place than mesh screen splatter guards that sit over frying pans like lids, but it does have the advantages of: 1) not blocking your access to sizzling food for stirring and mixing in new ingredients; and 2) versatility of use. You can also set up this splatter guard alongside an electric mixer to block flyaways during beating, or on a pedestal in front of She-Ra: Princess of Power's dad's face since he consistently talks with his mouth full, spraying saliva of food-bit projectiles at whomever he's talking at. Which always seems to be you.
Norpro's splatter guard has 3 hinged panels, each measuring 10" x 9", that fold flat for storage. Washing is easy thanks to a nonstick coating, but must be done by hand to preserve it.
