Frying/Cooking Oil - to save or not to save - what's the verdict?

grnidkjun | Feb 22, 2010 10:42 AM

I have a batch of oil I have fried chicken in.
I'm not sure if it's advisable to filter/save oil after chicken has been fried in it.

My mother says pour it through paper towels or coffee filters into a container..
stick a potato in the oil and refrigerate it labeled - chicken oil and use it again for chicken later.

Anyone here do this? And anyone know the purpose of the potato?
