    It’s out of the frying pan and into the… shoot, where do I put this grease? My mom always told me that putting grease down the drain was really bad for your pipes. Sowe always had some sort of jar lying around that we would fill up with bacon grease. I love this little holder for a lot of reasons, but the main two are: 1) it’s adorable and pig-shaped 2) it’s there’s a strainer on the top to help you catch any large pieces of bacon that shouldn’t be added to your grease container. It’s also conveniently dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven, and microwave safe.
