I cook 12 pieces at a time. I put four strips of bacon on each tong. That's a total of 12 strips. I then lay a paper towel over the bacon longways, and one over the bacon shortways. I put the bacon in the microwave and set the microwave to 3.5 minutes, and let it play out. Then I open the door for 10 seconds, close it, set the microwave for 3.5 more minutes, and let it play out. Then open door for 10 seconds, close it, set it to 3.5 minutes, let it play out, and on like this til I get to 14 minutes total cooking time. The bacon is crispy fabulous at that point, and the paper towels keep the microwave from becoming too messy.
The product has not weakened or melted any in the time I have used it. I do not see any damage. My bacon has also never tasted funny. I love this thing.
I have made a HECK of a lot of bacon in this thing, as well as in a pan on the stove top. I'll tell you flat-out: FRIED BACON TASTES BETTER. There's no competition there. In a blind taste test, bacon that's been cooked the REAL way is going to win out every single time. That being said, about 60% of the time when one of us is making breakfast, convenience wins out over the taste factor. Because even if it doesn't taste AS good, it's still bacon, it's significantly better than (even real) bacon bits, and this means bacon can happen when otherwise bacon would be too much work.
For cleaning, I actually just drain the bacon grease (save it for later!) and then wipe down everything with a paper towel. I then store it inside a gallon-size ziplock bag to keep everything clean and all together.
The only major caveat is if you have a small microwave, then this bacon maker might not be the one for you. When we moved into an RV, I popped this in the microwave and soon found I had to choose between partially raw or partially burnt bacon. The top of the rack - where the middle of the strips are - don't get cooked fast enough. Adding more time made the tips of the bacon - which were closest to the tray - overcook into dry, hardened, unappetizing bricks.
I got desperate enough I even tried removing the bacon from the rack partially though and microwaving it the rest of the time in the tray. No good.
Finally I tried a different microwave bacon cooking device, one designed simply like a plastic grill pan for the microwave. And now I've got awesome microwave bacon again!
I'm sure this thing will last for years to come. Now that we have an unsuitable microwave for it, I plan to gift it to a friend or family member. One friend purchased it within minutes of seeing it work and tasting the results. Like I said, a totally decent product! Just be aware of its taste limitations and have a big enough microwave.
