Product Description

Product Description

Even the best cut bacon can curl, making it difficult to cook evenly. The cast iron bacon press flattens the bacon, keeping it's shape for even cooking and the wooden handle stays cool while the press is in use. To speed up the process, pre-heat the press.

Amazon.com

Those who like their bacon flat rather than curled, especially for making BLTs, will enjoy using this pig-shaped bacon press from Norpro. Made of heavy cast iron with a wooden knob-style handle, the press lays right on top of bacon during frying, and also works well on quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches or thickly filled panini, and pork chops that have a tendency to curl at the edges. Care should be taken when used on food in a nonstick skillet not to scratch the finish. Whimsical as well as handy, the bacon press measures 8-1/2 inches in length and can be easily washed by hand. --Ann Bieri

Just had a chance to try out the bacon press tonight for BLT's--it works great!

We love our bacon nice and crisp, and this little press does the job great and seems to speed up cooking time (perhaps because the cast iron "holds in the heat" while the bacon fries?).

Bacon was crisp and delicious; the press prevents bacon curling and relieves you of the neverending task of flipping bacon over and over and over again when cooked conventionally.

This press is a great addition to my kitchen; only gave it 4 stars, simply because it isn't quite as heavy as I would like, although it still performs well.

Just make sure you season it before first use (directions in the box---just oil the press, oil a frying pan, then heat both together on VERY low heat for 20 minutes.

Allow to cool and wipe excess oil off press). But don't use it with nonstick pans!

I purchased this along with a different press to use making bacon on an oblong antique cast iron griddle. My family initially thought this was kind of a goofy, frivolous purchase but they have been amazed at how much better the bacon is using this. It makes it nice and flat and more uniformly cooks it without as many "rare" fat spots. If you prefer the rare spots you simply would cook the bacon for a shorter time. I think it shortens cooking time somewhat by holding heat on the top of the meat. The bottom of this is cast with raised lines of about 1/16" that mimic the recessed lines that outline the pig's features on the top. I've also used a press for frying cornbread and get a much more uniform cooking of it than I used to. I've only had this one now for a few days but I'm sure I'll think of many more uses for it. I looked at a number of these but was restricted in size by the flat area of my griddle. I was concerned that this wouldn't cover all my bacon but before this press arrived I used only my other press (I've done a review of that one as well), switching it from end to end of the griddle. With bacon this worked about as well as having 2 presses. There's a hole in the tail casting through which you can hang this on a squared cup hook or nail. The casting is of good quality with a pretty smooth surface and no flaws. It comes with directions on how to season it for use but I think the directions using flaxseed oil that can be found at a blog is a superior method. Search for 'chemistry of cast iron seasoning.' The handle unscrews so you can insert a bolt as a handle while you are baking on the seasoning.Read more ›

I bought this bacon press from Williams Sonoma and be warned--the screw holding the wooden handle on rusted out. The handle will not stay attached to the screw which makes the press pretty much useless. We followed the exact cleaning instructions to keep it from rusting, but it happened anyway. While this is a great looking product and worked well for a little while, it is now trash.

I have a pig collection but this is great anyway. I use it for every piece of meat I fry. I do not use oil so want the meat to sear and this fits the bill.

This item really helps create crispy bacon that's super flat, which I love. I'm not sure for certain, but I could swear it's also cut down the cooking time, which is also a plus. The only downside is that it's a little difficult to store after usage. Since it's cast iron, it can't be, or shouldn't, be cleaned, but only wiped down. This leaves the item greasy, which is fine if you have a place to keep it that doesn't get other things greasy at the same time. I've taken to putting in a Tupperware, which I don't really like, but it works. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product! Oh, and it's a totally cute pig!

This is a great whimsical bacon press made of UNseasoned cast iron. I got this because I thought it would add whimsy and fun to the kitchen, and it is very cute.

I hoped to use it with my 9" cast iron skillet to cook bacon, but it doesn't fit the pan. It sits about 1/4-1/2" from the bottom of the pan. Of course I was bummed because the description says the product is 8.5", and, therefore, should have fit perfectly. Since I have already seasoned and used it- no, I did not check for size before doing this (lesson learned!), I cannot return it. I am forced to use this with my larger, stainless steel saute pan, which is OK, but I prefer cast iron for some tasks.

So, get this if you have a 10" skillet or griddle top. It'll add cuteness to your breakfast...or your 4pm bacon sandwiches!

:)
Happy Holidays!

I bought this press because I thought its oval shape would be better suited to round pans than the rectangular presses I've been using, and it is. However, the design flaw is that the underside is heavily ridged -- the entire outline of the pig and all of the shape details are raised up about 1/8", preventing the press from coming into direct contact with the items being cooked. This quality is not evident in the photo. Why would a company design a "press" that won't press something flat? Duh!
