BACON PRESS



Cooking bacon is a personnel experience that can be soothing, comforting and darn right pleasurable. We all have our preferences about how bacon should be prepared. Fried, baked, broiled, braised and even grilled on the barbeque are different methods to render bacon love. Each method has it merits I like to fry my rashers in our trusty old black iron pan. If only our cast iron pan could talk and share the bacon experiences we have shared. This Christmas my sister (The President of Cookies) gifted us a bacon press. This all important tool will enhance our bacon cooking experience.


This particular bacon tool has some heft and girth. It fits perfectly snug in our 'Number 8' Lodge pan. It has ridges on the bottom to allow bacon grease to freely flow, We had to season this tool because it is made of cast iron. It was washed, dried, oiled and gently heated. This created an almost non-stick coating to the cooking ridges. It worked like a charm. It pressed the bacon flat to the pan to ensure even cooking. The results wers crisp and evenly cooked yummy bacon strips . This heavy tool will also work on sandwiches like a panini  press. Our bacon press is a welcome addition to the Chilebrown kitchen.

Big Dude, It does have some heft. I may even use it for 'brick' chicken.
