The best way to cook bacon is to roast it at high temperature. Lay the strips of bacon on a mesh rack (a regular rack might let the bacon fall through) set on top of a shallow pan. Bake at 450° for about 15 minutes. After breakfast, spend 15 minutes cleaning the rack and pan because they are probably too big to fit into the dishwasher. OR...
Cook your bacon in the microwave using a cooker specifically designed for the purpose. Cook the bacon for 30 - 90 seconds per slice depending on how you like it, the thickness of the bacon and the power of your microwave. When it is done, toss the cooker in the dishwasher. The bacon won't be quite as good as the oven-baking method, but most people won't notice the difference.
Now that I've convinced you to cook your bacon in the microwave, you need to decide what kind of cooker to buy. There are a lot of choices, but I recommend that you get the Presto "PowerCrisp" - about $14 on Amazon. It cooks up to 10 slices of bacon with very good uniformity unlike many cookers that cook the middle of the bacon strips more than the ends. In addition, if you have a microwave oven with a rotating tray, some cookers are so big that they won't turn, emphasizing non-uniformity.
At 10" in diameter, the PowerCrisp will fit in almost every microwave and dishwasher, thereby simplifying both the cooking and cleanup processes. Try it. You'll be glad you did.
The oven-baking process takes half an hour to preheat the oven and cook the bacon plus cleanup time. The microwave process takes 5 - 10 minutes. A no-brainer.
