More often than not there will always be small pieces of donut mix that float on the top or just below the surface of your hot frying oil. The skimmer will remove all of the donut debris in one sweep of the tool.
Clean oil lasts longer and donuts look better.
The skimmer is long enough to protect your hands from the hot oil, and still reaches to the bottom of your doughnut machine fryer. Dishwasher proof.
