K9296 - Prepology Glass Bacon Press
GREAT FOR CRISPIER BACON
My husband has been wanting one of these and I happened to be watching when it was presented. It helped cook the bacon more evenly. I've only used it once, but I can see where it will be helpful with burgers etc too. The reason for the 4 stars, not 5 is because of the shape. I'm sure this would be better on a griddle or square pan, or if it was more rounded than rectangle. It fit well in my large round frying pan, but only "pressed" the bacon in the center. I still thought it was worth the purchase.
No matter how I tried, this bacon press didnot fit into my 11" square cooks essential griddle pan, and even if it did it would of only covered 1/2 the area of the pan. Very disappointed. I sent it back.
Perfect press, makes bacon better- if you can imagine. I love it. Use it every time I cook something that needs to remain "flat"...happy with the PIG.
Why make a press that's too big for most skillets? It won't even fit in my 12' frying pan. Unfortunately, I waited too long to pull this out to make some stovetop burgers and now I'm stuck with it--and I paid full price.
love the pig!
I have wanted a glass bacon press for some time and when I saw this one we had to have it.I have a 12x12 griddle and it fits perfect.Our son-in-law saw it and thought it was so great that we decided to get him one for Christmas.I do miss seeing the "curly tails" on our bacon though!!Love it for sausage and hamburgers too.Great Bacon Press!!!!
A real winner
Such a cute bacon press. Fits nicely in my larger pan, and makes wonderful bacon, as well as a press for hamburgers and pork chops. I love it, and am glad I purchased one for a gift. So nice in my country kitchen.
Not A Universal Fit
These bacon presses are a good weight and very attractive; can leave them on the stove and they look real cute. Unfortunately, I purchase a square pan from another manufacturer than QVC and they are just a little bit too big. I thought all 11" square pans were the same, but apparently not. I am going to hold on to then in the eventuality that when my pan wears out and I will order the appropriate piece from QVC.
Husband LOVES it!
We finally have perfectly flat bacon that is evenly cooked! Pay attention to the length of it because I noticed some people don't have a pan that it fits. I have several, lol. We used it on a square frying pan and fit fine. We love this thing! Very sturdy and strong feeling.
Way too big
Unless you are only going to use this when cooking on a griddle, this is not going to work for you. Like another reviewer said, it doesn't even work in my 12 inch skillet. I really like it otherwise. It's going back.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and i just love it. I have an electric griddle and it works great. I am thinking of ordering a couple more
It Takes a Big Pig to Weigh a Ton.
The idea is great. Seeing your food as it cooks. Unfortunately it doesn't cook as well as my metal press. Worse yet, it's so big it will only fit my griddle. It won't even fit in my Paula Deen 12' Cast Iron deep skillet! Take an inch or two off and I'd be much happier with it. Guess I'll give it to someone who grills a lot.
The pig is to big
Does not fit in any of my fry pans....You had better have a grill, or it won't work.
