I found the bacon did best when you put a slice in every other slot. It keeps the bacon from sticking to each other and it's crisp within 5 minutes. If you use every slot, it takes over 15 minutes and is inconsistent in how done each piece is.
But, for two of us, it is perfect. It drains the fat away from the bacon and is very easy to drain.
The skewers warp, but using long wooden skewers works better anyway.
Dishwasher safe on the top shelf!
Whenever I see friends and family cooking bacon on the stovetop - grease splattering everywhere and the bacon not cooking evenly, I always recommend they get a Bacon Wave! I've been using this for years and will never cook bacon without it again! We give them out as stocking stuffers or side-bar gifts. So easy to use and healthy as the grease cooks off the bacon into the bottom - easy clean-up as well!
Just purchased this on Saturday evening 12/28/2013. Used it for the first time this morning to cook a full rack of bacon. I followed the instructions to the letter and when the microwave stopped ... I opened the door and found the edges of the Bacon Wave Tray curled upwards, the bacon wasn't cooked completely nor did appear as if it was getting crisp. Had to remove the bacon and finish it in the oven. Will never purchase a product like this again! It's better to lay a sheet of aluminium foil on the oven rack with its edges turned up. Bacon will be done and crisp in 8-10 minutes and cleanup only requires that you dispose of the aluminium foil. Tks and BEWARE OF THIS SORT OF GARBAGE! Please check back tomorrow ... will upload a picture this evening so you can see what happened.
it drains the grease off into the bottom of the cooker. although i like to cook bacon in the microwave, i needed some grease to make gravy out of. this collects the grease to be used or discarded.
How else could one cook to perfection up to 14 slices of bacon at one time in the microwave!!! Easy to clean and store.
I used a Bacon Wave for many years and finally had to replace it. It is possible to prepare your bacon any way you like it with this product. You can have it fully crispy or leave it a little soft. It really is a more healthy way to eat bacon. Enjoy!
I used this the weekend I got it. The only complaint I have is I figured out you cannot use every slot unless you have very thin bacon slices. The thicker cut ones that I buy i have to put a couple empty slots between them. I will be fine though because it does speed up breakfast when all hands are on deck and Hungry!! :)
The pictured bacon slices fit the device. Mine don't. I cook two slices of bacon at a time. I drape each slice over the first or last center plastic upright, then slip the ends thru the uprights about the middle and back then thru other uprights if needed. Then I hold them up as high as possible before skewering them. Yes, the grease drips into the base and it is easy to pour it out. I've used it every day since I got it. It is easy to clean. I used to cook the bacon on paper towels in my microwave. I think this thing will pay for itself in less paper towel expenses alone. Plus, I don't have to wash my microwave glass tray every morning. But unless you have a personal butcher who provides picture perfect bacon slices, there is ho way in the world that you could cook 14 slices at a time. Four slices of normal super market bacon would be a stretch.
just need to adjust cook times for your microwave
Best way to cook beacon
Saw on TV. Looked like a good idea. Bought it and looked forward to my Bacon and Egg breakfast.
Unfortunalty the bacon was not cooked correctly. WE tried adding more and more time but just gave up. I will probably try to return it.
It says it takes 6 minutes for 5 slices of bacon they must mean if the back in super thin. I cooked swan's thick sliced bacon 5 pieces and it took about 20 minutes could have done it way faster if I cooked it in the oven.
Expected very crisp bacon. Did not get that, even after 4-5 minutes with good quality thick bacon.
Would not recommend. Takes too long to cook. Also, bacon doesnt sit as pictured. I finbally got impatient & placed bacon on a napkin to finish it.
Using a medium powered microwave -- it took 3-4 times longer than the recommendation to cook a full load of bacon. And then, it was not really crisp. Using 4 strips of bacon still took 2-3 times the recommended time to cook. When it finally got the bacon crisp the runoff into its tray gets burned into the plastic making cleanup a chore. It's much easier and less messy to put your bacon on paper towels and cover.
I returned this product for a refund.
It is awful. Very time consuming to put all the slices into the slots and thread the skewers through each slice. When I cooked the bacon, the grease melted some of the plastic. Yuk!
I love this for Bacon without frying it in a skillet.
I DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL. BECAUSE IT WAS SO CHEEP I JUST THREW IT OUT.
This is a very good way to cook bacon without getting splattered with grease. The only drawback to this item is that it's too short for regular bacon so therefore you have to buy the center cut bacon only. But it works great!
Excellent cooks bacon that's not soaked in grease
