There’s tasty, there’s delicious, there’s sublime, and then there’s bacon. Bacon makes everything better, and with our handy grilling rack, cooking up a batch is as simple as firing up the grill. The easy-to-handle rack holds six to eight strips of bacon and cooks them in a hanging position so grease drips away from the meat.
The included well captures drips, preventing flare-ups and making cleaning up a snap. Great for grilling up breakfast or as an oh-so-tasty addition to burgers.
I used this bacon rack to cook some bacon for my grilled burgers, and it worked wonderfully. I do have a few tips to make it perform better....
1.) Cook over a high heat to reduce cooking time.
2.) I like to finish the bacon by dropping directly onto the grill for a few seconds.....it crisps the bacon up nicely, and since most of the fat(into the convenient little drip trays) has rendered out it doesn't flare up when you do.
It holds 8 strips, so I can cook bacon burgers for the whole family(there are four of us).
Gave it a quick scrub(I also used a little non-stick spray before cooking) and threw it in the dishwasher when I was done. You can even save the bacon fat to cook with
I was not happy at all with the Piggyback bacon rack. It took much longer than pan-frying and the bacon was very dry and rubbery. I like my bacon crisp and this just didn't happen. Also, the rack was a bear to clean. I had to soak it overnight, then I used baking soda to scrub it and it still did not get it shiny clean. Wish I could return it
We got this for Mothers Day, but were not able to use it because some of the product labeling had been glued onto the cooking surface. Later in the week, I had to get some Goo-Gone and it took about an hour of spraying, soaking, and scrubbing, in repeated cycles, to get the rest of the label and glue off.
In this day and age, why is any manufacturer or retailer still using stickers and labels that don't peel off cleanly?
I'll send another review once we finally use the product. Too bad I wasn't able to use it right out of the box
This is my second purchase of this item so I can make more at one time. It's a great way to make crisp bacon in a short time. However, it's not easy to clean and it only makes about six slices at a time.
