Oil Splatter when frying

ios94 | Sep 14, 201012:14 PM     18

Any suggestions on how to cut down on the amount of oil splatter when pan frying/searing meat? I guess one of those mesh covers are the way to go but I'm wondering if there is anything else I could do.

I've only been using a gas stove for about a year and the amount of splatter is too much.

Am I cooking with too much oil? Too much of a high heat (even though that is what necessary sometimes)? The meat tends to go in pretty dry so I don't think it's moisture on the meat.

It gets really messy.

Any ideas are appreciated.
