Cooks Innovations™ Launches the Deep Fryer Filter, a Healthier Way to Fry Food at Home



DeepFryerFilterThe Deep Fryer Filter’s woven mesh design fits fryer baskets of all sizes, catches residue and crumbs, and keeps frying oil clean three times longer.

Lake Mary, Florida–May 28, 2015– Cooks Innovations™, an IMCG, Inc. brand, announced today the launch of its Deep Fryer Filter, providing a healthier way for families to prepare deep-fried food while keeping frying oil clean three times longer.

“The Deep Fryer Filter’s woven mesh technology provides an exciting, healthier alternative to the usual practice of frying foods at home,” said Peter Vander Stichele, President. He added, “More than 7 million deep fryers are sold annually to American families. As we move toward a healthier consciousness in our country, the Deep Fryer Filter allows families to have their fried chicken, tempura, French fries, and spring rolls while keeping the frying oil fresher and cleaner for longer.”

It’s not necessary to settle for unhealthy, burnt residue at the bottom of the deep fryer. Home cooks can simply cut the filter to the fryer’s basket size and fry their favorite tater tots or shrimp as usual. The non-stick Deep Fryer Filter catches residue and crumbs and can be cleaned in the dishwasher after use.

The Deep Fryer Filter fits easily into any rectangular, deep fryer basket and is reusable 1,000 times. Find this essential cooking tool at retailers nationwide and online at

The Deep Fryer Filter joins the Cooks Innovations™ line of creative problem solvers for the home and kitchen, such as the patented, 2015 IHA Innovation award-winning Butter Mill, the SimmerMat, and the Fridge Monkey.

Dark & Stormy

  1. Root Beer Floats—Two Ways

This timeless American classic has two versions. Make a round for the little ones using the classic recipe—2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and 1 ½ cups ice cold root beer. For the adult variation, skip the ice cream, instead combining root beer with heavy cream, orange bitters, and bourbon. Cheers!

  1. Festive and Fancy Watermelon Lemonade

Lemonade is the quintessential porch drink, and this recipe for Watermelon Lemonade creates an instant vibrant twist on an old favorite.

The original recipe is kid-friendly and non-alcoholic, and includes a dashing mint sprig for garnish. Add your favorite vodka or tequila to up the ante.

  1. Ginger Beer, then Dark and Stormy

Ginger beer is a delicious, unique alternative to root beer, and also has a great way of settling the stomach after a round of burgers and dogs, too! Grab a six pack at your local grocery store, pass around a few for the kids, and then make the grown-ups a Dark and Stormy by adding your favorite dark rum and lime.

  1. Red, White & Blue Frozen Ritas & Slushes

This Uncle Sam inspired concoction includes tequila and triple sec for adults—all you need to do is omit the liquor and add orange juice or limeade for the children’s table.

  1. Lemon Mint Sparklers

And finally, for the over-achievers: A bonus-point lemon mint cocktail where you make the syrup ahead of time and keep cold. The day of, chill the club soda and mix the two ingredients right before serve time to ensure the cocktail is nice and fizzy.

For the grownup recipe, omit the lemon juice and reduce the lemon-mint syrup to 1/3 cup. Then, stir in 1 ½ cups bourbon to complete the treat.
