The bacon press, or how my OCD expresses at breakfast

Bacon Press

As I require my bacon crispy and perfectly flat, this bacon press is one of the best Hanukkah gifts I ever received!

The round Norpro bacon press fits my cast iron frying pan perfectly. I heat them both to medium high and use thick cut bacon. The press helps apply heat from both sides and the bacon cooks very evenly. I turn the bacon once or twice during the cooking process, removing when it looks perfect to me.

This simple kitchen tool makes a big difference.

    I hope you're happy.

    ps- for the kitchen minimalists, I'm pressing the bacon in a cast iron pan with a slightly smaller cast iron pan pressing on top. yes I do have a square bacon press given to me by dear mum, but let's not joke about that.

    @jlw is being decidedly anti-marketing here by not telling Smash that you can kick a percentage of any amazon purchase BB's way simply by adding their affiliate tag
    [ &tag=happyexposure-20 ] to the end of any standard amazon URL.

    So you could in-fact give BB a cut while rendering jlw's product suggestion moot by skipping the middle-cooker with a purchase of Tactical Bacon, pre-cooked with a shelf life of 10 years.

    So a URL that would ordinarily look like "" becomes ""

    If there's a bunch of other crud in the URL after the product code bit [ B003RC5FQ2/ ] you can just strip all that and add the tag.

    PS: whatever happened to...... boiboi-20 or thewire06-20 or .... there was another one.

    PPS: on second thought, maybe we should match the product to the referer code?
    happyexposure? YES PLEASE!
