The hot oil splashed on my shoulder and even on my face yesterday while frying. I'm frying chicken and I put a cover on it while frying but when I tried to turn it up side down to fried the other side the hot oil splashed. It's look like I'm in the middle of the war covering my face to the splashing oil Any tips on how to get rid of splashing hot oil while frying?

I have been through this before. I have got any tips but I just want to tell you that try to be careful. Make the fire slow, it might help reduce the splashing. Hope you have not got blisters on the face. It is bad, try to be careful next time. good day to you.

just be very careful....I know what you are talking about...when you flip a peice it all comes back right on your hand or whatever...I haven't had it hit me in the face yet.....I step back when I turn it.

that really hurts. try sulfadiazine cream for the burns... i too hate frying dishes because of the fear of splashing the hot cooking oil to my skin. but i have to fight the fear and endure the pain if it happens as my wife is more afraid to fry any dish, especially fatty pork and some fish. if my wife has nothing to do but to fry dishes herself, she usually cover the pan and when it's about to turn the fish to cook the other side, she will turn off the stove, not only lower down the fire but turn it off. there are some people who suggested, cover the dish with flour before sending it to the boiling oil as it will lessen the splashing. but i do not always use flour as it changes the taste of the dish.

That always hurts, I have a little scar on my shoulder from splatting chicken grease. I really don't have any tips except to run away from the pan when it happens, that's what I do haha...I suppose this would be hard to do when it comes to flipping the chicken though. Maybe wear a sweater and a ski mask and goggles next time, might sound ridiculous but it would work.

Hi lyn! This incident happened to me when I was in LKG or UKG amd my mom use to say this! She was cooking some thing and I went near the stove. My bad time some oil splashed on me and I cried a lot it seems! But I don't know home much I have cried now! I thing she was cooking egg! I madly remember the item that she cooked! Even now my mom will kid me when ever I enter kitchen! lol! I make me to remember how I would have cried! Regarding the tips! Please apply normal coconut oil on the burns for a week or two! that will help you to get back your skin tone! Or else you can go with some ointments that will also help you a lot. But don't put power in it. It will create impressions on your face that can not be removed and it can be identified easily compared to coconuts workout!

I use a glass cover as a shield between me and the fry pan and I always use an oven mitt to cover my hand and long fork to pick it up out of the pan. I rarely get burned this way. I can see what I am doing through to glass cover.

I do have a glass cover and mitt but I don't have along fork that's why the oil reach me.

I can really imagined how you have fought the splattering hot oil from hitting you while frying. I've heard about adding a bit of salt to the hot oil helps, but I vae not tried it yet so I'm not sure of it. I guess the best is use only utensils that is wipe dry or use a splatter guard while attempting to turn over what you are frying. Controlling the heat is another because splattering happens when the heat is too high.

There are two things that can make oil splash. One is that you dont have the proper utensil to turn your food. You should grasp it firmly near the oil and turn it. I usually use either a pait of thongs or two knives if I donĀ“t have them around. But the most important thing is that by no means should either the food nor the utensils be wet. Just a tiny drop of water can cause an eruption of hot oil.
