If you find your kitchen counters cluttered with food-specific gadgets and appliances, you finally have a good reason to get rid of them all. The culinary innovators at Nostalgia Electrics have created the only thing you’ll ever need: The Bacon Express, a toaster that cooks delicious slices of pork instead of bread.
Like your ice cream maker, waffle maker and popcorn machine, the $US40 ($53) Bacon Express is really only capable of one task in the kitchen: Cooking bacon. But while you can live without ice cream, waffles and popcorn, it’s hard to imagine a life without that crispy, salty staple.
The vertical heating element has enough capacity for six slices of American bacon (thought there’s no reason it wouldn’t also work fine with Australian bacon), and a pair of doors seal the heat, grease and goodness inside. A dial on the side also lets you adjust cooking times, while a tray at the bottom collects grease drippings so they’re easy to dispose of, or use for other purposes. We’re not here to judge.
