Actually, I grill, (sorry, broil) my bacon. Quick, crisp as you like and healthier (less fat).
Its a toss up. Turn on the oven or turn on the burner. Its electricity being consumed either way.
I don't mind paying for something that makes my life easier. Kinda like heat and AC. They are expensive, but I like to have both.
Satellite too. Where does one draw the like on expenses?
My oven is the very least of my concern.

We use thick cut bacon and I guess thats why the 15 -20 minute cook time.
At 350, there is little spatter and the bacon just sizzles away.
The bacon we get is very very lean. Costco thick cut. Its almost as lean as ham. Almost!

Oh....We sometimes use a flat rack and the toaster/convection oven. Either way is fine for us.

I found the fat

I find the bacon fat and lemon meringue pie are battling for dominance on my can.

FWIW, there are restaurant chains that buy pre-cooked bacon. It comes frozen and is popped in the microwave for about 5 minutes. Comes out flat. That is what is served on bacon cheeseburgers and for Canadians, that is what is served on any sandwich you get at Timmie's that comes with bacon.

The other day I bought a package of Oscar Mayer Selects -- "Smoked Uncured Bacon; No Nitrates or Nitrites Added except those naturally occurring in celery juice."

Is it possible that this is a more healthful choice for bacon? I couldn't tell any difference in texture or taste, just price.

One warning on frying bacon though: Do not fry it at breakfast time. I ended up eating a couple of slices at breakfast, made a BLT for lunch, and later on made bacon & eggs in the frying pan. I couldn't help myself. mmmmmm. The package didn't go far; it was only 12 ounces to begin with.

It depends on who you choose to believe I like bacon, so I believe Michael Ruhlman: http://ruhlman.com/2011/05/the-no-nitrites-added-hoax/
