Before you work yourselves into a froth and unleash fury upon me in the comments, let me make one thing clear: I know bacon isn’t meant to be cooked in the microwave. An oven will do a better job, or a skillet, or hell, even a machine gun. That being said, some mornings you just want some damn bacon, and you don’t have time to cook it properly.

The Nordic Ware microwave bacon grill can nuke about five strips at once, and its design allows the grease to drain off, ostensibly leaving you with something resembling crispiness. It’s down to an all-time low $4 right now (albeit as an add-on item), and has a surprisingly great review average from over 1,500 customers, so it might be worth trying out.
