Sorry, I didn't notice that if you posted that info earlier. I wouldn't have guessed there were no paper bags in China, tho.

Newspaper also makes a good "fat-drainer."

Jacques Pepin cooks it in the microwave and swears by it.

I've tired that and found my microwave cooks the strips unevenly. I bake the bacon in the oven on a rack (400F) and it comes out great! Evenly cooked and I can save the fat if I need it.

I do the same Andy, I like the way it comes out and my stove stays clean as does my oven. I cover it with parchment paper.

In America I cooked bacon in the microwave and in the oven at 400, but I have qualms about using newspaper with no paper towels, and I don't know how to catch the grease in a small toaster oven.
Newspapers here seem the same as in America at first glance, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were something nasty in the ink that I might not want to ingest.
I'm only saying that because I've gotten food poisoning too many times to mention in my short time here. For example, most restaurant toilets have no sink, so I know the staff aren't washing their hands.

When I was in University I had four burners and a toaster oven. I did everything in that toaster oven, and it wasn't a big one. Do you have an oven tray and broiler rack for your toaster oven? If so, just put the bacon on the top piece with the holes, over the solid tray and bake it at about 300 degrees. Watch it so it doesn't spatter, and turn it once. I made great bacon this way for 4 years!

Can't you get paper napkins in China?

When I was there they were available everywhere.

Paper bags was the word Mike, yes, saw that, these guys do not muck around when they make new rules.

I cook our bacon in a sandwich press that closes right up, both sides at once and super crispy
