I ordered these directly from the Omaha Steaks website and was really looking forward to getting 100 slices of precooked bacon. The price seemed good, after all, I would have to buy about 6 pounds of bacon from the supermarket to get 100 slices. But beware...you do get 100 slices, but each piece is as thin as a piece of paper. The box that they come in clearly states 0.75 pounds (12 ounces). That's all you get. They charge $30 and you don't even get a pound of bacon. Now granted, it is cooked so I'm sure some of the weight is cooked out, but you don't even get 1 pound. Once heated the slices don't even hold together. I love Omaha Steaks products, but I wouldn't pay more then ten dollars for this product.

Bacon cooks up crisp and tasty; no off flavor. Packaged very well so that bacon slices stay separate and don't clump together. Takes 30 seconds in the microwave between double paper towels--perfect every time. Not greasy, very crisp, crumbles well if you cook it just another 10 seconds and let it sit on fresh paper towels for about 15 minutes after you heat it. Freezes perfectly.

I love this bacon. It's thin, very flavorful and so easy to use. The convenience and lack of waste (zero waste) makes it a real bargain. Warning to those prone to midnight snacking: This can become "Meat Candy" to some people. And I like that I can get it thru Amazon, the shipping is cheaper and I don't have to buy a lot of other items from Omaha to get this as an "add on".

I've bought precooked bacon at the supermarket before, and theres no real difference except the flavor of these is definitely stronger, but still has that just microwave slightly chewy texture.

These are great for on the go eating, and for saving your stove top from grease rain. packaged very well.

We LOVE Bacon - it is our biggest "weakness" and we don't care, it's worth it. However, over the years, we have found less and less quality bacon-until now. No funky fake smoky taste, no odd smells, not loaded with fat (reasonably speaking), quick and easy to cook, stores for months in the freezer-if you can make it last.

Our biggest complaint on bacon is the chemical taste, the difficulty in getting bacon to be crispy without being burned, the amount of time and mess when cooking, high fat - as in most of the bacon is white with a tiny bit of meat, you can't freeze grocery store bacon without the quality suffering and the quality is already pretty lacking.

Omaha has solved every single one of these problems. It gets crispy but not burned in 1:20 in the microwave, if you re-use the already "hot" plate, the rest of it can crisp in 1 minute per plate. It is newly packaged in serving size packages of 5 sheets with 5 pieces on each sheet. It feeds 2 of us - breakfast sandwiches, BLT, bacon cheeseburgers, salad crumbles, wraps etc. I like the new packaging because the rest of it is no longer in a horrible zip bag that doesn't zip and has to be folded to fit back in the box. A Great improvement on packaging - BUT there's less bacon for the same price. Since the dollar in worth about 30 cents, and food prices and gas prices are sky high, they had to find a way to pass it on to the customer-they are not a charity after all, but I wish companies would pass it on in a more straight forward manner.

I just wish some other companies would find a way to produce a product this good. The price is acceptable but Omaha shipping is outrageous and they take the "slow boat from China" to get here (as Grandma used to say). Sometimes it takes 2 weeks, but in October/November it can take 5 weeks to get an order.

Lastly, if you fry this bacon, there is very little splatter and very little grease. I prefer the microwave because it is faster with excellent results, and you canpress with a paper towel to get any excess grease off the bacon-but there isn't much, if you prefer you CAN fry it with alot less mess than store bacon.

I have ordered this 3 different times from Omaha steaks and have never gotten a 100 slices-- 98, 88 and the last time 82. Maybe it was just bad luck. My friend in New Orleans got a 100 slices. They took my home address off their mailing list!!

I read all the reviews before my purchase and while most were very positive I was a bit put off by the price, but it was well worth it. It's the best tasting bacon I've ever had, but that's just me. I do recommend it, it's easy to serve from freezer to microwave in seconds. Perfect for BLT's burgers, breakfast and heck even just plain old bacon all by it's lonesome. I will buy again and again and again...you should too.

DELICIOUS!!!!!! i appreciate the bacon coming in small packages and it's very convenient and just the right size for putting in the freezer. Four slices cooks in about 45 seconds so ready in a 'jiffy' Thanks!!!!

Bacon arrived on time. Excellent packaging so you can just cook as much as you need and not one slice more. We made some great BLT's!

I love being able to just pull out some bacon and warm it up and make a sandwich out of it or eat it for breakfast.
