Drywite 8″ square 30 wire mesh tinned skimmer with 18″ handle
Suitable for use in high temperatures
This is a 30 mesh skimmer and should be used for sifting the larger particles out of your pan and not clogging any finer meshed one you use. Selecting the correct gauge of gauze lifter helps it to last longer.
Tinned versus Stainless steel. Tinned mesh reacts better in the hot temperatures of fat. It is not affected due to the molecular make up remaining constant and takes a lot longer to wear out. Stainless steel one can become brittle far easier.
If you use the wrong size mesh, the skimmer becomes clogged with a build-up of particles which can reduce efficiency and cause premature wear.
A large grade 30 mesh for larger particles.
A medium grade 50 mesh should be used for small particles.
A fine grade 80 mesh should be used for fine particles

My skimmer is broken, can it be repaired?
No, it is highly unlikely it can be repaired. The relatively low cost would make more sense to replace if the skimmer has got to that stage.
My 30 mesh skimmer isn’t getting the finer particles out of the pan. Is there anything else on the market?
Yes, Drywite supply both a 50 mesh and 80 mesh skimmer that will handle the finer particles better.
I have a few Drywite items, do they supply any sort of tidy rack to keep them all together?
Yes, Drywite do have a stainless steel utensil rack that fits on your wall to help keep all your skimmers and shovels together.
