Pig Bacon Press

We’re not particularly turned off by curled bacon, but it’s avoiding uneven frying and soggy segments that’s a little tricky, particularly without a Norpro Pig Bacon Press. This weighty cast-iron press sits atop your bacon strips as they fry, ensuring the absence of curls and twists while maximizing evenness of flavor and crunchiness. It’s hand-washable, sports an insulating wooden knob handle, and also works wonders on sandwiches and paninis.
