It wasn't until I reached college that I first encountered the magic box that cooked bacon.

It works well if you only need a piece or two (microwave between paper towels). For an entire package, I prefer to pan fry, as the bacon grease can be saved and used when cooking other things. It's too valuable a resource to throw away  ;D

I usually reserve mine but end up using only a tbsp or two before discarding. I can send you some, with optional cat spittle if she gets at it behind my back.

I prefer to put it all on a cookie sheet and bake it around 425. Put some parchment+aluminum foil liner on it and trivial to clean up.

The traditional method to nuke bacon is to wrap with foil and place your most important music or data cd's or dvd's on top and bottom of the foiled goodness.
You might not get any cooking done but the light show is spectacular.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

Have you tried that while watching The Wizard of Oz with all the lights out, playing Dark Side of the Moon along with it?
