Product Description

Even the best cut bacon can curl, making it difficult to cook evenly. Norpro's Cast Iron Bacon/Grill 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. Includes instructions for seasoning before use, cleaning and storage.

I bought this for my dad for Christmas and he loves it!

Just remember to wipe it with an oiled paper towel to give a very light covering of vegetable oil when you finish cleaning it and this will prevent it from rusting.

Perfect size and weight for a 12" skillet. Keeps the bacon, chops flat for even frying while preventing any splatters. High quality materials. You won't cook bacon again without this indespensible utensil. Easy 5 stars for this great product.

W. Hooper's review is right on! Bacon cooks faster, flatter, and with much less spatter. This truly is the perfect size for a 12 inch pan ... wouldn't want a different size/shape! Clean up is a sanp. Proper care (seasoning before first use, and oiling) is required, but it's easy enough to do. Also great for grilled cheese/panini sandwiches.

It's round, it's firm, and it's fully packed! Consequently it was delivered in fine condition. You can tell it's a bacon press because it has a raised relief pig on it. Without the pig it would just be a press. And we all know that the press is biased these days. Whereas a bacon press should be unbiased. And this one is nicely flat, with ridges on the bottom to promote appropriate grease expulsion during the cooking process.

I had carefully selected this item based on extensive measurements of my main bacon frying implement, "Old Reliable". Old Rel is a 10 inch cast iron frying pan of uncertain provenance. Amazon.com carried three bacon presses, but this one would make a perfect partner to Old Rel, based on the principle of similar diameters.

I seasoned the bacon press according to directions. I must say that the seasoning directions did not work. After following them twice, the bacon press still had a raw cast iron smell to it. The directions appear to be a compromised attempt to season the bacon press without having to burn the handle in a hot oven, or take the handle off. I may need to remove the handle and submit the rest to the fiery depths of my oven for an extended time -- suitably anointed for the ordeal (the bacon press, not me). Meanwhile I shall endeavor to persevere, and hope that over time the succulent bits of bacon fat will provide the perfect seasoning through normal use.

I lay the cold strips of bacon into the cold frying pan. I turn the heat on. I lay the bacon press gently over the bacon. I wait. Soon, the sizzling sound begets an odor, and the odor a salacious longing for my favorite breakfast treat. After several minutes of cooking (and longing), I lift the bacon press. Lo! There be flat cooked bacon!

Well made. Useful size and weight, although it could be just a little larger in diameter. This thing gets really hot and holds that heat for awhile, as you would expect with cast iron. However, it would have been nice if designers had provided some insulating material around the top of the metal supports for the wood handle. Really need a glove when using this to avoid coming in contact with the very hot metal handle supports.

I've had mine about 8 months...works great.
- Made of cast iron with wood dowel handle.
- 8 5/8 inch diameter
- Handle attached with 2 screws
I took the handle off and seasoned mine in the oven a few times using bacon grease.
Only gripe is the handle.
- It should be more securely attached.
- If you don't grab the handle in the middle you can hurt yourself.
I'd buy it again.

I enjoy using it. It browns the top of what you're cooking as well as the bottom, at the same time. No need to turn over. It's also light enough for me (my choice), others might want a heavier press. The wooden handle doesn't get hot, unlike the more heavier models with metal handles.

While others have talked of rust or bad smells, I think that if you season it properly, this thing is almost perfect. It is big enough to hold 4 slices of bacon flat in the pan, and does not rust, stain, make the bacon taste bad or any other the other things people speak of. I have a sneaking suspicion that these folks did not season the press before they used it, or skimped on the seasoning. I put it in a pan with enough Crisco (old style from a can) to cover the bottom part of the press, and left it on very low heat for 30 minutes. I turned the heat off and let it sit until it was almost cooled but still liquid, then removed the press and wiped it down with paper towels. Seemed to work perfectly...no bad smells, no taste leftovers and no rust.

The only issue I have with it, and why it gets 4 stars instead of 5, is the handle. It is firm enough to hold onto, but if you turn it to the side and up, the whole press will swing down. If the press is hot, you will get burned on your forearm. I was able to overcome this temporarily by unscrewing the handle and putting some wood glue in the holes, then screwing the handle back on. However, I am not sure how long this solution will last close to heat. Be careful with it and it will not bite you though. :) Other than that, this is just what I wanted, and you get a bonus because you can use it when you grill steaks or hamburgers too. Recommended...but be careful with it.

This item is a proper weight to press the bacon and sandwiches because it does not crush but allows for even browning. I feel the wood handle is a good insulator but it could have been an inch wider as a large hand could touch a hot area. Overall, I like this item very much, especially the pig on the top.
