Why you should definitely own a grill specifically for making bacon

No matter how cluttered your countertops already are, you'd better make room for the Bacon Express Crispy Bacon Grill ($40). Created by Wisconsin-based Nostalgia Electrics, it's a device that's good at only one thing. But the way it performs that task is pretty ingenious. Just drape up to six strips of bacon on the cooking plate, close, and set the heating dial for your desired level of crispness. The fat drips off the bacon as it cooks into an easy-to-remove pan. Yes, the Bacon Express cooks only delicious slices of salty pork. But a slot toaster cooks only bread.
