Review: The Emson Wave - Microwave Bacon Cooker

If you love bacon, you know how frustrating it can be to cook it in the microwave. It either comes out too soggy, too burnt, or unevenly cooked. That's why I was intrigued by the Emson Wave, a microwave cooker tray that claims to make cooking crispy bacon fast and easy. I decided to give it a try and see if it lives up to its promise.

The Emson Wave is a plastic tray with a wavy design that allows the bacon to cook evenly and drain the excess fat. It also has a lid that prevents splatters and keeps the microwave clean. The tray can fit up to 14 slices of bacon, depending on the size and thickness. The instructions say to cook the bacon for one minute per slice, though it depends on the wattage of your microwave.

We found we needed to cook 10 slices of regular cut bacon for 10 minutes. The result was surprisingly good. The bacon was crispy, but not too dry, and had a nice flavor. The tray did collect a lot of grease, which I poured into a container and disposed of later. Laying a single paper towel over the whole assembly prevents grease splatter on the walls of the microwave. The tray and the lid were easy to wash with soap and water.

Overall, I think the Emson Wave is a good product for cooking regular bacon in the microwave. It does make cooking crispy bacon fast and easy, but it takes a bit of getting used to, and you may have to adjust the cooking time depending on your microwave and your preference. It is well worth the time saved compared to cooking bacon on the stove or in the oven, but you have to be careful not to overcook or undercook it.
