    46 Father's Day Gifts That Are Actually Super Practical

    Presenting gifts that won't be relegated to a dusty attic.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A breakfast sandwich maker one reviewer described as the "single best appliance they own." This must-have kitchen gadget fixes breakfast (and lunch and dinner) sandwiches in five minutes or less, creating the BEC of their dreams.,

    Promising review: "Single best appliance I own. My boyfriend sent me this sort of as a joke; we both thought it was both ridiculous and brilliant to have a McMuffin maker in your house. And then I tried cooking with it for the first time. Holy crap, it's AMAZING. I ended up using frozen waffles for the bread; you have to trim them just a tad, but they are the perfect amount of crispy. I love experimenting with this, and have built some truly amazing sandwiches. Waffles, eggs, avocado, Swiss, and ham. Waffles, egg, corn salsa, jack cheese. If you can fit it into the rounds, you can make a sandwich with it. The panel under the egg slides out easily and cleanly when the egg is cooked (I find four minutes is perfect for cooked eggs with runny yolks), and the whole middle section can simply be tossed in the dishwasher." β€”Elizabeth Joy Weaver

    Get it from Amazon for $23.47+ (available in five colors).

    2. A tiny Bluetooth FM transmitter adapter if their car isn't old, it's antique. Hands-free calling and *finally* getting rid of that annoying aux chord are theirs for the taking: They just have to plus this into their utility port/cigarette lighter, connect their cell, and voila. So long having to listen to radio talk shows too early in the morning because they can't stream Spotify.

    Promising review: "The connection was easy to set up and the sound is clear. I used this for an eight-hour road trip without any problems and I was able to answer many phone calls while traveling." β€”Taz

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    3. A monogrammed tri-fold wallet best described as ~fancy shmancy~. Long gone will be their days of pulling out crumpled dollar bills from a stained money holder that should have been retired a long, long time ago.

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely beautiful wallet. Very soft matte leather, the stitching is pretty and sturdy, and I love how they allow you to put a small message inscribed inside the wallet. My husband loves it!" β€”Barb

    Get it from donebetter on Amazon Handmade for $34.95.

    4. A two-pack of crewneck tees, because it's about time they bid adieu to the ratty old shirt they've been wearing for the past, oh, decade. These are simple, sleek, and a definitive upgrade.

    the gray and black T-shirts

    Promising review: "I was skeptical based on the price but pleasantly surprised once I opened the package. The shirts are comfortable, soft, thick(but not too thick) and great quality." β€”David B.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.53+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 71 colors).

    5. A Filtrete air purifier that removes dander, mold, dust, and pollen which means *takes deep breath* they'll be breathing in sans the air gunk that worsens their seasonal allergies.

    the air purifier

    Promising review: "I got this due to seasonal allergies and asthma. This has been a lifesaver and works great! I love that I can turn off the light at night since I use it in my bedroom and the noise level is fine as it becomes white noise in the background." β€”MFrink

    Get it from Amazon for $91.31.

    6. A tackle box for dads who correlate fishing with relaxation. This kit comes with allll the goods they'll need (and would have purchased on their own anyway): up to six hardbaits, skirted jigs, spinnerbaits, soft plastics, and terminal tackles. Fancy fishing lingo that does not mean anything to me, but my dad nodded when I read this out loud.

    the box

    Promising review: "Dad loved it. I never get him fishing gear because I don't know what he has or needs, but I a nice little surprise mix was a great gift! He said it was quality items and ones he didn't already have." β€”Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    7. A Dash rapid cooker for upping their breakfast game by several Michelin stars. This takes the ~hard~ work out of egg-based dishes because all they'll have to do is fill this cooker with water, add up to six eggs, and breakfast will be served.,

    This handy gadget holds up to six eggs (it can make poached, soft-, medium-, or hard-boiled eggs, and omelets), has an automatic shut-off feature, and the removable parts are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "So neat and fun to use! I used it the next morning after the delivery, and I cook my eggs only in the Dash Go. It cooks every egg so perfectly, and they come out so fluffy every time. It cooks a variety of egg dishes, and you can cook vegetables, and some meat like fish. Very wonderful kitchen gadget, and I highly recommend you make a dash to buy the Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker if you love eggs! You will not be disappointed!" β€”Tonya

    Get it from Amazon for $17.17+ (available in five colors).

    8. A pack of AirPod cleaners because... yeah, apparently those need to be cleaned. They'll just have to squish the flexible square into their AirPod speaker, peel it off, and voila! Gunk will have been visibly removed and the crooning of Mick Jagger will sound clearer than ever.

    Blue square with lots of ear wax on it that was removed from an AirPod speaker

    Promising review: "They work as advertised. I use them for my AirPods, iPhone, and iPad Pro." β€”Lydia Kimble-Wright

    Get 24 from Amazon for $15.99.

    9. A wine vacuum that removers air from their ~vino~ to preserve freshness for up to a week. This is great if they typically prefer a glass of red with dinner: they can officially say so long and farewell to pouring half empty bottles down the drain due to spoilage.

    My colleague Natalie Brown swears by this wine saver. Here's what she has to say:

    "It literally creates a vacuum seal: you wet the rubber cork, stick it in, then use the pump to suck out all the air remaining in the bottle. When it makes a *click* sound, you know you're done! I've owned one of these for eight years now, and my parents have had one they've used regularly since the early nineties. Just think of how many glasses of wine just those two have saved!"

    Promising review: "I’ve owned one of these for the last five years. If sealed with Vacu Vin, an opened bottle will be good for an extra three days easily. No more feeling obligated to finish the bottle so it doesn’t go bad. We keep spares to give out as last minute gifts to wine drinking friends and everyone who’s gotten one loves it." β€”Phizak

    Get the pump and stopper from Amazon for $12.95.

    10. A King C. beard and face wash infused with coconut water, argan oil, and avocado oil to gently cleanse their skin *without* drying it out. It's even got a hint of menthol that leaves behind a cooling sensation, ergo it's the perfect summer skincare staple.

    the face wash

    Get it from Amazon for $8.84.

    11. A two-piece barbecue tool set equipped with a spatula and tongs that truly ~rock~ when it comes to providing a kitschy, novelty gift β€” one that will actually be put to use every Sunday.

    the guitar shaped tong and spatula

    Promising review: "This made a great gift! Pleasantly surprised by the durability and the price." β€”Jeff

    Get it rom Amazon for $26.99.

    12. Wrangler twill cargo shorts that scream "dad style" in the best way possible thanks to a 100% cotton fabric, a relaxed fit design, and so. many. pockets.


    Promising review: "Purchased these for a week long trip to the theme parks, and couldn't have been happier. I was able to keep my wallet on me in my pocket and also put my sunglasses in them; so I didn't have to place items in a locker. The material was good too, as I was worried it would be to heavy and make me sweat even more in the heat (as some brands do), but no, it was just right." β€”Shae S.

    Get them from Amazon for $22.86+ (available in sizes 30-54 and in seven colors).

    13. A toothpaste holder complete with a toothpaste squeezer to make sure they get every last minty drop trapped in that damn tube. (One reviewer even describes this as ingenious and TBH, they are not wrong.)

    reviewer photo of the white holder with toothpaste inside

    There have been mornings when I think I've run out of the toothpaste and then am forced to have bad breath BUT! There is always some toothpaste left β€” you just have to squeeze it out.

    Promising review: "This device is ingenious! Wished I’d known this product exist sooner. I use Arm & Hammer toothpaste which still comes in the standard small cap so having it prompt up behind the bathRoom cabinet was impossible. Now, problem solved. It’s a small invention that made a positive impact. I thank the person who thought of it." β€”Jl33NYC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.39.

    14. A splurge-worthy Always Pan that surpasses even the excessive amount of Instagram hype it gets. This snazzy kitchen gadget replaces eight pieces of cookware, weighs only three pounds, comes with a steamer basket and spatula nester, and is *truly* nonstick.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Always

    Promising review: "This is the best pan I have ever cooked with. The surface allows me to control the amount of olive oil used, the dome lid design is great for faster cooking without turning up the heat, and the pan itself is so beautiful I leave it out on my stove top as decoration. I am hoping they make a small sautΓ© pan and a 3-quart saucepan some day." β€”Cheryl M.

    You can also check out our full review on this Instagram-famous Always pan.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in seven colors).

    15. Low-top sneakers crafted from a durable leather construction bound to become their fancy shoes β€” thankfully, they won't have to compromise comfort when getting gussied up thanks to a cushioned, shock-absorbing sole.

    model tying leather shoes

    Promising review: "These shoes are very comfortable, look great, and seem to be pretty high quality. The sole is great and they are comfortable at first wear without any time needed to break them in." β€”Daniel C.

    Get them from Nisolo for $150 (available in sizes 8-13 and six colors).

    16. A UV Light Sanitizer Box so they can de-germ everything from iPhones to TV remote controls. They'll even be able to wirelessly charge their phone on top, aka a blessing for dads who are are constantly losing their cable cords (and ergo stealing yours).,

    Oh! And this can be used with aromatherapy oils! Before cleaning, pour the essential oil into the aromatherapy inlet, press the switch, and the aroma humidifier will work together with the cleaning.

    Promising review: "What do you get someone who has everything? THIS!!! The UV sterilizer kills 99.9 percent of germs! We handle our phones constantly so this is the perfect way to ensure no germs or viruses are left on your phone as well as any other items such as; jewelry, keys, pens or whatever fits, less than 6.9 inches. The most amazing part is, this has a dual feature as a wireless charger! It is very well made and I highly recommend!!!" β€”Diana L. Ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $24.17.

    17. Drop Stop car gap fillers (as seen on Shark Tank!) with all of their late-night McDonald's runs in mind. French fries falling into the abyss that is the cracks in their seat? No longer a problem with this genius neoprene invention.

    reviewer photo of the black drop stop

    This gap filler is made from a neoprene material that provides the universal perfect fit for any car β€” just attach it to the seat belt catch once (it has a built-in slot) and it'll be set! You'll never have to worry about removing or readjusting.

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize that it would become one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft, acting just like an extension of my seat. There really isn't another product that compares to this." β€”Tessa Forbes

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    18. Vinyl record coasters to keep their Ikea furniture protected in style. Music buffs will rejoice at the idea of their coffee mugs being graced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Elton John, and The Beatles.,

    Promising review: "OMG I love these!! Super high quality! This gives my coffee table the extra ZING it needed." β€”Emily G.

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A splurge-worthy weighted blanket that will essentially feel like a cozy hug when they sit down for their nightly nightcap of Law & Order: SVU. The best part? It's fab for summer thanks to a moisture-wicking fabric that's ultra breathable.

    the blanket
    Gravity Blankets

    Get it from Gravity Blankets for $205 (available in four weights and two colors).

    20. A Maud's Coffee and Tea subscription so they always have access to delicious java options in their cupboard. These coffee (and tea!) pods are compatible with Keurig and Nespresso machines, plus the decadent variety pack flavors are truly something to drool at: think cinnamon roll, banana foster, raspberry chocolate, and more.

    Plus, these pods, lids, and their filters are made from biodegradable and recyclable materials.

    Get the first month's variety 24-pack from Maud's Coffee and Tea for $11.24.

    21. A hand-powered chopper to save them blood, sweat, and tears... literally. Chopping onions (or veggies, fruits nuts, herbs, and more) will no longer be a sobbing affair thanks to this small-but-mighty kitchen gadget.,

    Promising review: "This chopper is amazing!! I love cooking, but used to absolutely HATE chopping onions... until someone gave me this chopper! Now I simply have to quarter the onion, throw it in the chopper, pull the handle about 10–15 times, and they're ready to be used! No more teary eyes or spending a long time chopping onions. The cup is big enough to fit a whole onion... I think the capacity is 3 cups. There's tons of other uses to this as well... you can chop pretty much anything from herbs, veggies and fruits, to making salsa and guacamole." β€”Valjulia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.02.

    22. A memory foam seat cushion to take their uncomfortable desk chair and turn it into something they can actually sit on for eight+ hours. An ergonomic design prevents bad posture, plus a gel layer provides ultimate support.

    the u-shaped pillow on chair

    Promising review: "This seat cushion is SO GOOD. I have had a lot of problems with pressure on my tailbone and resulting back problems, and they've been getting worse. I will be honest, I have only tried the old-fashioned medical donuts, so I don't have much to compare it to. However, this cushion is nicely thick, and the cutout and contours are so perfect and they take all pressure off my tailbone. After working for a few hours, I got up and for the first time in almost a year, didn't have pain. Normally, the pressure on my tailbone becomes pretty bad while sitting, but produces an even sharper pain upon standing. Feeling so great for the first time prompted me to buy another for work so I could keep this one at home and never be without it! Hopefully, reducing the pressure on my tailbone will also help it heal, but even being free from pain is wonderful." β€”CSC

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    23. A solid fire ring for a more ~minimalist~ fire pit that looks like it was constructed by some fancy schmancy architect β€” and while that many be true, rest assured that this piece of art won't compromise s'mores quality.

    the fire pit
    Bass Pro Shops

    Get it from Bass Pro Shops for $159.99+ (originally $196).

    24. A six-outlet wall charger with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a night-light, because their entire apartment has a single outlet and considering all the devices that need to be charged... that simply won't suffice. Luxury is being able to juice up their phone, laptop, and earbuds at the same damn time.,

    Promising review: "Love this. I have many items to plug in now that I have to office at home. There’s plenty of room to plug in two laptops, a computer, a monitor and my Alexa safely. It’s a little bulkier than I was expecting but that is due to the room your items will need." β€”Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    25. A heated razor that is to shaving what caviar and champagne are to a party: in other words, fancy. This splurge-worthy device is equipped with adjustable heat, a stainless steel warming bar, five FlexDisc blades, and a wireless magnetic charging base that'll look fab on their bathroom sink.

    the heated razor

    Promising review: "Absolutely amazing! The heat added a dramatic level of comfort while shaving. Each stroke felt wonderful. With my first shave, I expected to feel the warmth but I doubted it would provide such a dramatic level of comfort. What I didn’t expect was how much sharper this cartridge was. The feedback from each stroke was very different from the feedback on the Gillette Pro Glide Cartridge. I very much like the Pro Glide, but this cartridge was very smooth with hardly any tug on the hairs. With my coarse beard this razor gave me a shave as close and comfortable as a good straight razor shave!" β€”Robert

    Get it from Gillette for $200.

    26. A solar charger for the outdoorsy dad who has the audacity to invite you on sunrise hikes and fully expects you to wake up before 6 a.m. ...willingly. This USB battery bank is compatible with most smartphones *plus* is waterproof and uber durable, which means 50,000-mile hikes won't be compromised by a drained cell.

    solar power bank with droplets of water on it and carabeener attached

    The power bank takes six to seven hours to fully charge in the sun, is water-resistant, and has two USB ports as well as an LED light.

    Promising review: "Went down to the beach this weekend with my family so I figured I would test it out. I love how lightweight it is β€” I am definitely bringing it with me on my next hike-in camping trip. Very beneficial when you don't have a power source nearby or trying to get off the grid for a while. Charges as advertised, and I even tested it out by holding it under water in my sink for 10 seconds and all I had to do was dry it off and plug in my phone and it works." β€”Casey Clayburg

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    27. Deodorizer balls so that they're no longer taken aback by the stench coming from their favorite workout sneakers. These absorb odor and and help remove icky bacteria: All they'll have to do is twist and slip these into their favorite kicks for that ~new shoe smell~.,

    Promising review: "These are awesome! My husband and I worked in a kitchen for a few years, and our shoes would just smell so bad β€” between sweating from hours of running around and being on our feet, to the grease smells of the sea food truck. These worked amazing to keep the smell down. Our house went from stinking no matter what to not being able to smell anything at all." β€”Stewart Alexander Davis

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    28. A softshell jacket bound to become their new ~wardrobe staple~ due to a classic design, stretch-with-them construction, a water repellent outer, *and* a wind repellent technology.

    29. An ingenious scrap collector with a wire rim that easily attaches to the edge of their counter top. Consider post-cooking clean-up a true breeze because they can now simply scrape those potato peels and random morsels of rice right into this silicone bin.

    the green bin attached to a kitchen countertop

    Promising review: "I am one of the messiest cooks in the world. When I get done, I usually have scraps around my feet where I have knocked bits of veggies off the counter. I've looked for a long time for something to take care of the problem, but everything seemed like overkill. This container is perfect. It's just the right size. I attach it in front of my belly, and all the stuff that usually hits the floor, goes in the container. Plus, I can wipe the counter into it, empty it in the trash, and pop it in the dishwasher." β€”Patricia Logos

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    30. A well-loved robotic vacuum capable of reaching the areas of their home in which they wouldn't dare to venture β€” we're talking under the couch, baby! Dust bunnies are no match for this nifty gadget, which will clean all their floors whilst they lounge and binge yet another Netflix docu-series.,

    Promising review: "I've been in the market for a robovac for quite some time, and, after a recent back surgery, vacuuming manually wasn't easy. I purchased this vacuum and have been very pleased with it. Its slim design gets under the dressers, beds, other furniture, and all the tight spaces that I couldn't get to with an upright vacuum cleaner. This makes a very low sound while in use, and honestly, I don't even realize it's operating, as the sound is pleasant (not loud at all)." β€”Teach3

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in two colors).

    31. Splurge-worthy Bombas ankle socks because the gift of hoof huggers is one that keeps on giving (provided they do not get lost in that dryer abyss). These are made with a durable cotton, a cushioned footbed for extra support, and a comfortable arch support system.

    the gray ankle socks

    Promising review: "I walk five to seven miles a day and the cushiony feel of the socks is wonderful! The socks don’t slip or slide down and I’m grateful for that. I don’t balk at the walk anymore." β€”Christine S.

    Get a pack of four from Bombas for $46.50 (available in sizes M-XL and in five color combinations).

    32. A Shark Tank rapid ramen cooker for the chef who refers to buttered toast as gourmet. I get it! I hate cooking! It sucks the life out of me! But that's okay, because all this cooker requires is noodles, a microwave, and about three minutes of their time β€” a delicious meal is now theirs for the 'gram.

    black ramen cooker with noodles, hard-boiled egg, scallions, and carrot inside

    Promising review: "Don’t think this is another unnecessary product. If you are an avid ramen eater, you will absolutely know you did not waste a penny with this. Ditch the pot! And if you have already been microwaving your ramen, then ditch your previous bowl. No more burning your fingers to grab it out of the microwave or guesstimating how much water to add. The handles and fill line are so convenient. So easy to add in veggies, meats, and eggs. A perfect bowl every time!" β€”DoughertyKrafjack

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in seven colors).

    It comes with everything they need to install their bidet in ~10 minutes! There's even a 60-day money-back guarantee β€” so if they absolutely hate bidet life, you can simply return and buy them, idk, a sweater or something.

    Promising review: "This was our second Tushy! Our first was installed in our master bath. We just remodeled a guest bathroom and could not call it 'finished' without a Tushy in it. Once you get Tushy clean, nothing else will do!" β€”Teresa S.

    Get it from Tushy for $89 (available in six colors; use our exclusive promo code BUZZFEED at checkout for an extra 10% off).

    36. Mid-height hiker boots for the dad who lives and breathes the great outdoors. These are solid investments due to a durable microsuede nubuck leather and waterproof interior, side ventilation for preventing sweaty feet, and shock absorbing midsoles.

    the hiking boots

    Get them from Cabela's for $129.99 (available in sizes 8-14).

    37. Wireless Bluetooth earbuds with 80,000+ reviews because of how. freaking. good they are. These are sweat-proof, block noise, last up to four hours on a single charge (the case itself has 14 hours of charging time), and don't cost a small fortune β€” aka your heart won't break when they forget to take these out of their jean pockets on laundry day.

    Reviewer image of two black earbuds next to their charging case

    Promising review: "The earbuds worked seamlessly and well out of the box. I use them while hiking the hills with my dogs and when working at my desk. I can still hear outside noises when needed for safety, but can listen to music without disturbing others. The earbuds are comfortable even during exercise, and they fit securely. Using the earbuds as a headset with my cellphone is easy as well. I do have to experiment with how they handle the Google assistant. The audio quality is at least stereo hi-fi, and the earbuds paired easily with both my phone and laptop. Wireless charging and having a large backup power source for the phone are terrific features." –Jawpar

    Get it from Amazon $29.99 (available in five colors).

    38. A Taiyaki double pan so they can whip up decadent fish-shaped waffles guaranteed to make their mouth water; they can be filled with custard, chocolate, cheese, red bean paste, sweet potato, and the extensive list truly goes on. Reviewers recommend adding Morinaga hotcake mix for the batter!

    Promising review: "Decided to buy it since it costs several dollars for a taiyaki at a sweets shop and in the long run making my own is cheaper, not to mention healthier and more customizable. It is surprisingly light weight and easy to use; the non stick surface makes cleaning a breeze. Batter: there is a basic recipe included, but you can use any premade pancake batter mix (the famous fluffy Japanese brand is the Morinaga pancake mix). You can even use mochiko (glutinous rice flour) to make a mochi shaped a fish! We make our own anko (sweetened red) beans, but you can obviously buy premade ones at any Japanese grocery stores." β€”Mandy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Get it from DribbleUp for $99.99+.

    40. A heavy duty pizza stone for dough that looks like it was flipped several times by an expert wearing a white chef's hat. This stone guarantees a delicious crust charred to perfection, which means the frozen pizza they're eating for dinner (yet again) will taste gourmet.

    A reviewer's finished pizza with five stars and text "adds so much flavor"

    It can be used on grills too!

    Promising review: "Whether you make pizza from scratch or enjoy a frozen pizza from the market, this pizza stone is essential for the best at home pizza experience. Preparing your pizza on a stone assures a crispy crust and removing the pizza from the oven, on the heated stone, assures you that it will remain warm while the slices are consumed." β€”Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in 14" and 16" sizes).

    41. A set of two ceramic mugs complete with a furniture-friendly cork coaster bottom and a splash-proof lid, the latter of which is important if they (like me) have ruined their coffee tables in the past cc: those hard-to-remove rings.


    Get a set of two from Amazon for $17.99.

    42. A smartphone lens kit that provides professional camera quality without the professional camera quality price. For less than $20, they'll be snapping photos worthy of a full page in National Geographic (or at the very least, the Instagram account they just created).


    This comes with a fisheye, macro, and wide angle lenses, plus a microfiber cloth for wiping away dust and fingerprint smudges!

    Promising review: "Love using these clip-on lenses. The pictures I have been able to take using them look great. The macro lens is a lot of fun to play around with. I am including some photos I took using these lenses." β€”T. Rossi

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven colors).

    43. A premium steel W&P cheese knife that I forbid you to gift unless you present the package with this line: "Who cut the cheese?" This easily slices through Manchego and guarantees the gift of a perfect at-home charcuterie board. Perfect slices of dairy are my love language.

    the cheese knife

    Promising review: "We go through a lot of cheese at home, and are using a few knives alternately. Most cheese knives are either limited to soft or hard cheese while this W&P Cheese Knife is able to cut both, even cut chunks of butter for cooking preparation. The depth of the blade makes this knife very solid, and the grip is great, making any cut very secure and easy." β€”Wisrute

    Get it from Amazon for $31.

    44. A "Bacon Bin" if the inconvenience of storing grease was ever so overwhelming in the moment, they contemplated the unthinkable β€” pouring said grease down the drain and adding their plumber to speed dial. This "I should have thought of that" invention gives them a place to store piping hot liquid until they can use *or* properly dispose of it.

    The Grommet

    Once it the grease hardens, you can scoop out for easy disposal, or reuse in other recipes. Oh, and this cutie gadget is from small business Talisman Design!
