Take it out regularly to pour the cooked fat, once cooled to room temperature. You can pour the grease directly from the pan, or can use a cheap plastic funnel if don’t want to cry over messy spills. Once filled, just throw the bottle in the trash or take it to the oil recycling program of your locality. Oil disposal just gets this easy!

An old plastic oil bottle under your kitchen sink will do the job. All your greasy, messy oil disposal problems will be solved.
