Some Useful Tips

  • Don’t put the bacon in the cold pan; it can make the bacon stick to the pan, burn, and dry out. Always use parchment paper or cooking spray.
  • The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the slices and how you like your bacon cooked. You will need some extra cooking time for extra crispy bacon.

Why cook bacon in the convection oven?

convection oven

Convection ovens use different combinations of convection and steam in order to heat food. They also reduce energy costs and increase the speed of cooking. The ability to cook several bacon strips at once makes the convection oven very convenient.

Can I use aluminum foil in a convection oven?

Never use aluminum foil when cooking with a convection oven. The aluminum foil draws heat away from your dish, causing it to cook quickly but unevenly.

Reheating and Storage Tips

You can store leftover bacon after it is drained and cooled in a zip-top bag in the fridge for 4 to 5 days or freezer for up to 3 months. The best thing about bacon is that it only takes around 10 minutes to thaw and about 5 minutes to heat up.
