Odor-Absorbing Splatter Screen Thaddeus Alemau from New York had the ingenious idea of creating an Odor-Absorbing Splatter Screen by sandwiching a carbon filter between the existing mesh screens. Lifetime Brands designed this washable splatter screen that captures odors from foods such as fish and bacon while still allowing steam to escape for crisp results. Several variations of this product were developed across multiple brands.
