  • 1 12 oz package bacon I used center cut


  • Set temperature to 390 degrees and timer at 10 minutes. Check bacon at 5 minutes and flip over using a fork or tongs. Continue cooking for 5 minutes. 



  • Time might be change according to thickness of the bacon and how crispy you like yours. If you have thinner bacon or like not so crispy bacon, start with 8 minutes. 
  • Begin by adding a little bit of water to the grease catcher. I find this helps reduce smoking and makes cleanup a little easier.
  • Place 6-7 pieces of bacon in the fryer basket. I try not to overlap too much to ensure the each piece cooks evenly.
