Default Bacon in the PC Bar Pan

I just bought one of Pampered Chef's Bar Pans after seeing a thread here awhile ago raving about this size. Anyway, several had mentioned doing bacon in their oven on this. I've never done bacon in the oven......can you PLEASE give me the details!

I only cook bacon in the oven. It keeps all the splatter mess in the oven (I have a self clean oven) and clean up is a breeze. I lay out the bacon in the pan (I use the PC bar pan) and place the bacon in a 350 or 375 degree oven depending upon the thinckness of the bacon and bake until done which is about 15 - 20 minutes. I turn the bacon over about halfway through the cooking time.

I know this doesn't answer your question, but we do ours on the BBQ. We had bfast at a friend's recently & this is how they did. We've done it the same way ever since. You just lay your bacon out on a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet?), put it on a preheated BBQ, close the lid & keep checking it & turn when needed. KEEP checking it, once it starts to cook it goes fast!

I've never heard of cooking bacon in the oven before! Does it get crispy? It certainly sounds easier and less dangerous. I'm always getting popped when cooking bacon. Last time it popped me in the eye!

This is a great way to do it! Anywhere from 350 to 400 I have heard (and used). BUT, I never flip it over! SO easy & gets the stone seasoned fast. I do meatballs this way, too (in stones in the oven).

yes, it does get crispy! You can cook it less for more chewy & more for crispy.

Yup, we've done it in the oven for as long as I can remember...up till this Christmas when I got an electric griddle....so now do it on that...but it's great in the oven and so fast.. you don't have to keep watching it and turning it...just put it in, set the timer...and walah...it's done.

I've been cooking bacon that way for about a year. So much easier!! Now my question is I've only used the pan for the bacon. If I use it for something else, will it smell/taste like bacon?

Nope that's the great thing about PC stoneware...it won't take on the flavors of stuff cooked before it! At least that's what I've been told...I'm not a consultant, but I've never had a problem.

I cook bacon on my bar pan all of the time. I also make a Texas sheet cake (chocolate) in the same pan. Very rarely, but it has happened, I will notice a little tiny bacon flavor along an edge. Since it's not consistent, I assume I didn't clean the pan quite as well as I could have.

It's true! Flavors don't cross. Except soap. If you put soap on the stone your food WILL taste like soap.

Man, I need to sign all you ladies up as PC consultants! LOL! It's customers like YOU I love to have at my shows. I mean, the guests don't know me & of course I'll tell them these things are wonderful, but when their friends verify that, YES, these are great, it really makes a difference!

I've said this before, but I love hearing how people really do love their PC stuff. I take it all for granted b/c I have so much & use it all the time. then I go to MIL's or my Mom's & wonder HOW they manage without so many of the PC tools! ha, ha!

Thanks to you ladies, I tried bacon in the oven for the first time the other day. (on my PC bar pan of course!) I had never done it before, but don't cook bacon very often because I always get popped. I can tell that we will be eating lots of BLT sandwiches this summer!!! YUMMY!!!!
