    I have dim memories of my dad keeping 'drippings' in a metal container in the fridge when I was growing up. Might see if I can google something

    It's just a square can with lid, under the lid is the tray with a little handle on it. I got it from my wife's grandmother. It hadn't been used in years until I asked for it.

      Leftover? never had any. Always pour it over my meal.

        Yes, covered Pyrex bowl in the fridge at all times. Not strained (but if you let it sit in the pan for few minutes before pouring it off, the bits sink to the bottom and you can leave most of them behind.) I cook about 1lb of bacon a week, and it renders enough fat to always have enough on hand. I fry eggs or other meats in it, add it to extra-lean hamburger (venison is too lean without it), roast veggies in it, baste a roast with it before sprinkling the seasonings on it.

          I keep a canning jar next to the stove and pour the bacon grease in there. It's *never* full and we never have any to store in the fridge b/c I use it with everything!

          Edit: And I don't strain it or anything.
