This is a seemingly simple question, but I can't seem to find good helpful techniques or suggestions for this.
After frying in a dutch oven (or any other pot with little or no lip) and letting the oil cool down a bit, I like to store the oil in the container it came in. Whenever I do so, even with a funnel, I end up spilling almost as much as I save. Typically it runs down the side of the pot instead of pouring out.
Now this is a problem with trying to save any liquid (e.g. soup, sauce). Is there a trick that doesn't involve making a mess?
