Gotham Steel Bacon Bonanza
Rate this product
Gotham Steel Bacon Bonanza is a non-stick pan with a rack inside that will enable you to cook crispy bacon in the oven instead of a frying pan. This pan's design will keep the bacon raised above the grease, so the bacon you'll get from it will be lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than bacon from a standard frying pan. You'll be able to use this pan to cook any type of bacon, including tofu bacon or turkey bacon.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Line Rack With Strips
To use this pan, you'll first need to line its rack with up to 12 strips of bacon ( one strip per slot ).
- Place in Oven
Once you're done adding bacon to your pan, place it in the oven on the top shelf. Cook it to your desired level of crispiness. If you're not sure how long to cook it for, it should take around 12 to 20 minutes, and it's best to check its consistency after 12 minutes have passed.
- Remove From Oven
After your bacon's done cooking, remove it from your oven and transfer each strip to a plate with a fork or pair of tongs. You'll likely notice that a lot of grease has collected in the bottom of the pan, so just dispose of that wherever you normally dispose of liquid waste.
The last step is simply eating your bacon however you'd like, whether you're going to scarf down each piece individually or add them, whole or chopped, to food dishes. If you're going to use your bacon in a cold dish such as a salad, you may want to let it cool a bit before eating it.
How It Works
The design of this pan, which is actually a rack inside a pan, ensures that each strip of bacon stays straight as it cooks, and that all strips stay evenly spaced. It also causes any grease that's present during the cooking process to drain off the bacon and collect in the bottom of the pan, instead of staying on each strip for you to consume. Less grease consumption means less fat, less calories and less cholesterol for whoever's eating the bacon.
This pan is rectangular, which means that it can hold more food at once than a round frying pan.
Each part of this pan has a non-stick Gotham Steel surface, so no strip of bacon will ever be stuck to the pan. After your bacon is cooked, you should be able to pull each strip smoothly and quickly from its slot, and you'll never need to add any additional grease, butter or oil to the pan.
- Dishwasher Safe
When you're done using your Gotham Steel Bacon Bonanza pan for the time being, you can safely run it through the dishwasher, so if you have one, you won't need to scrub it by hand.
- Doubles as Cake, Casserole Pan
If you take the bacon rack out, you'll be able to use the pan on its own to cook things such as cakes and meat, veggie and / or pasta casseroles. You won't need to worry about these things sticking to the pan, either, due to its non-stick material.
- Works With All Bacon
This pan can be used to effectively cook any type of bacon, not just common pork bacon. That means if someone in your household is vegetarian or on a reduced-meat diet, and wants to cook turkey or tofu bacon within it, they can with no problem. It'll also accommodate bacon that is sliced thicker than that within a standard package.
- Useful for All Meals
In a given week, you may end up using this pan at a variety of different meals, as various types of bacon can be part of breakfast, lunch or dinner. Besides having it with eggs or adding it to sandwiches or burgers, you can even cut it up and add it to your casserole dishes.
- Promotes Health
Bacon cooked in a frying pan can be very unhealthy for you, as the grease that the bacon floats in can add lots of calories and fat to a serving. Switching from a frying pan to a Gotham Steel Bacon Bonanza pan will actually make you healthier, as you'll no longer be consuming bacon coated in fatty grease.
- Only Holds 12 Strips
While this pan has slots big enough to accommodate virtually any thickness of bacon, there are only 12 slots, so you'll only be able to cook 12 strips of whatever bacon you choose at once. You could try to cram two or three slices of bacon in one slot, but this will interfere with the pan's ability to cook the bacon evenly, and you may come upon some barely-cooked strips. Being limited to 12 strips at once may be a disadvantage for those users cooking for large families or groups.
- Microwaved Bacon
Microwaved bacon generally isn't as greasy and fatty as bacon that's cooked in a frying pan, but it often stays soft and blubbery instead of getting crispy, which interferes with the taste. With the Gotham Steel Bacon Bonanza pan, you'll get crispy bacon without an excessive amount of fat and grease.
- Restaurant Bacon
There is the option of going and buying a dish or meal that includes bacon at a restaurant, but the ways restaurants cook bacon normally isn't compatible with a low-fat diet. Plus, you'll need to take the time to go and get your meal whenever you want bacon.
