Cook Bacon Vertically for Less Fat, Less Mess


Frying bacon in the skillet brings an aroma into the home that will get almost anyone but a teenager out of bed in the morning, but what a mess. The makers of the WowBacon microwave cooker have come up with a new, neater way to create crisp, flavorful bacon—and with less fat.

It’s said to be a healthier way to prepare bacon because the fat drips down over the vanes in the cooker, as the bacon broils vertically.

The small cylindrical cooker goes directly into the microwave oven and the bacon remains contained, eliminating splatter and keeping the microwave clean. It fits the “green” trend, too, because there’s no need for wads of paper towels to soak up grease.

And the bacon smells as wonderful as ever. For more information, visit
