Bacon is excellent with Sunday brunch fixings or on a turkey club sandwich, but many dont cook it often at home because of the high fat content and the mess. The PowerCrisp just may change all that by providing a leaner and cleaner way to make bacon. This microwave bacon cooker cooks bacon either to a crisp or a soft consistency, depending on how much cooking time its given it in the microwave. It has a pair of tent-shaped plastic racks that are easy to load by simply draping strips of bacon over them. The racks rest within a 2-inch-deep tray, which collects all the fat drippings as bacon cooks so the meat is not sitting in its own grease as with stovetop frying. And, as opposed to pan-frying, there is no splatter involved when cooking bacon in the microwave. Simply place a paper towel over the racks and it captures any grease and keeps microwave walls clean. The wraparound handle makes it easy to remove the PowerCrisp from a microwave turntable and dispose of hot drippings without burning hands. Slotted tops on the two plastic racks allow you to slide a knife through the racks to remove cooked bacon. The PowerCrisp cooks up to 10 strips of bacon at a time and both racks and the bottom tray are completely dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Presto covers this microwave bacon cooker under a two-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

I'm by nature a very skeptical person, and when the instructions said that there would be only a small amount of grease left over I was very skeptical. Well......they're right. I don't know where it goes, (no, the paper towel has VERY little grease on it) but I cooked an entire pound of bacon (super crisp) and there was only about a 1/3 cup of grease left. No where near as much as from a frying pan. AND the bacon tastes just a good as bacon from a pan.
Now this is normally the deal killer: CLEAN UP let the unit cool off; disassemble the racks; drain the grease into a container; use warm to hot water and dish detergent to clean the five pieces, rinse, dry and that's it.
The only thing that might be a "negative" for some people is that the cooked bacon comes off the rack in a "V" shape. No problem if the bacon is real crisp. The pieces break in half and you have two short pieces.
If you use a standard size pound of packaged bacon you should be able to get five pieces on each rack. That's ten pieces at a time. Two cycles and you can cook an entire package of bacon.
I haven't tried the really thick cut bacon yet. The instructions say that the only difference is the cooking time.
