The Bacon Express | Gadget of the Week

Nostalgia Electrics has bacon lovers drooling with the launch of the Bacon Express. If you haven’t seen or heard about it, the Bacon Express is a griddle in the shape of a toaster. The bacon drapes over the top of the hot plate and the sides fold up while the bacon crisps to perfection.


Basically Nostalgia Electrics has made your dreams come true with the Bacon Express, which has recently spawned a frenzy all over the internet of people talking about this unique, handy gadget! It’s a must have item for the next coming weeks if you’re hosting a Super Bowl party or if you’re planning to make breakfast in bed this Valentine’s Day. In this post, I discuss it’s claims, what people are saying about it, and where you can find a Bacon Express.

The Claims

According to the Nostalgia Electrics website, the Bacon Express claims to be a healthier, more convenient way to cook bacon. It cooks up to 6 strips at a time and because the product is vertical, the grease drains down into the removable drip tray.
