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.
