Actually works !!”
Always grilled or fryed bacon, grill took ages and presumably used lots of electricity; tried this in the microwave and it actually worked, bacon sarnies in 3 minutes, and a great saving in electricty.

Works well and much quicker than grilling”
I've just tried this with the separate splatter guard I also bought and found that it works well once I'd found out the right length of time to cook the bacon. As there are no instructions with it, and not a lot of information from other reviewers, I thought I'd share my trial and error findings using a 900W microwave: 6 minutes for 4 back rashers will result in juicy bacon with crispy fat. Adjust the time for fewer rashers. As for cleaning, I soaked it in hot water for about 15 minutes and had no trouble cleaning it with a Dishmatic fillable washing up brush with sponge.

These are good. My advice is to use them with bacon at no higher a setting that 700W. they obviously have more utility uses other than crisping bacon, such as completing the task of melting the cheese on toast etc

Not for me”
I had hoped this (and the cover I bought at the same time) would be useful for cooking bacon in our caravan, but it is too large for the turntable in there. It does seem to work though.

Brilliant! Best ever - look no further”
by Mrs Smith
Having been unable to find a worthy replacement for a previous Bacon crisper for years, I resorted to buying second hand from the USA - the only place I could find them. UNTIL I FOUND THIS! - just the best thing ever - well done Lakeland. I have tried various options out there only for them to be returned having melted with the heat of the fat. This is more than a match for my last crisper and every home should have one! Personally I use a couple of sheets of kitchen roll to help absorb the water that comes out first and drain off mid cook. Especially good for streaky bacon.

Good for bacon bad for cleaning”
Bought this item this Saturday and when we got home we decided to have bacon butties, they were great but we cannot get it clean, soaked in sink for 30 mins then into dishwasher, came out just as bad, soaked it again in sink and spent 45 mins scrubbing it, hope you at Lakeland have an idea for cleaning it

A note from the team: Thanks for the review and taking the time to speak to me on the phone. If it's really baked on, a cream cleaner like White Wonder can be used.
It's good but.............”
by Julie Wilson
This works perfectly to make very crispy bacon. But how do you clean it? I have found it impossible to get this really clean.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're happy your pleased with the crisper. The bacon crisper is dishwasher proof ( top shelf only ) or soak in hot soapy water for best results.
Crisper's lip defeats purpose”
This is OK but item I received has a lip which is NOT shown on the picture. This lip somewhat defeats the purpose of avoiding fat dripping fromthe product before one can get it to the sink, so one needs a paper towel underneath, I would have preferred one as shown.

What a surprise!”
by Mrs Liptrot
I was very sceptical but thought this bacon cooker was worth a try as I hate cleaning the grill. Much to my surprise it works very well indeed and is much quicker and easier to clean than the grill.

I bought 5 of these, one for each microwave in the house, and I must say how amazing they are. My Bacon was so crispy, and so lean, that I thought it was Jerky! Yummy!

Great Microwave bacon”

Bought this in conjunction with the splatter guard ref. 10621 and it works well - nicely cooked but not overdone bacon, and very little mess. The crisper retains any runoff so no need for a plate underneath or kitchen towel etc. I can see it would be fiddly to clean without a dishwasher. Note this was with good quality farm shop bacon - the cheap water-laden variety might be a different story but then why would you want to eat that?!

I bought one of these, quite sceptical as to how it would work. I was very pleased, cooked 4 slices for 4mins and worked well. I used it with the splatter cover, so had no issues with a dirty microwave afterwards, and washing it in the dishwasher cleaned it sucessfully, althouh I could see it would be a bit of a pain to hand wash with all the ridges.

Most used microwave product!”
by Miss Wilson
It's very easy to get bacon the way you want it. My own preference is crispy so the microwave time is about 4-6 minutes for my 1000w oven. I use the splatter guard with it which minimises cleaning the oven to a quick wipe with a damp dish cloth. It can be difficult to clean, but I've found a dish brush plus grease cutting foam cleaner does the trick.

The oil/water from the bacon splashed all over the microwave. I have tried it with cling film but the bacon didn't turn out crispy at all. Without the cling film, I ended up spending 10 mins cleaning the entire microwave. My microwave has these metal bars on top as well which made it almost impossible to get a perfect clean. In short, if you dont mind the extra cleaning and just after less greasy bacon then this is fine but if it is convenience you are after, then this is not a good product for you.

It's a job to clean”
by Alison Boyd
Have used this a few times, and it works, but is difficult to clean between the grooves.

This is a product that has been used a lot since purchase and has not warped. I use it also for baking potatoes.
