The food fat magnet is a way to skim fats that float to the top of your food while cooking. Rather than take a spoon and tediously skim the sauces, stews or soups, the cook will use a magnet instead. Put the magnet in the freezer as the directions explain and leave in the freezer until the food is ready to be skimmed. Place the icy surface of the magnet to the grease and run it over the surface of the foods. The coldness on the surface of the aluminum will make the fat adhere to it. It is easy to handle and washable.
