Why cook bacon on an electric griddles?
The electric griddle such as Presto electric griddle has a large surface so that more bacon can be cooked. In addition, the mechanism of slow and stable heating of the electric griddles guarantees a crispier and more even cooking of bacon without sudden fluctuations in heat intensity or sudden loss of gas which could result to bacon getting burned or under-cooked despite the careful monitoring.
Furthermore, cooking in a skillet on a stove can be very hot, and the flying oil immediately after placing the bacon in a pan is notorious, proving to be dangerous in the long term. Cooking bacon in a pan is as easy as cooking on a stove, but faster and safer.
How to cook bacon on an electric griddles?
To cook on a griddle, simply preheat the skillet to 325 or 375 degrees Fahrenheit. You can immediately see that the griddle has been heated enough to be ready to add bacon once water splatters instead of merely staying on top once you put it. When the griddle is ready, spread the bacon evenly with the help of kitchen tongs.
Cook on both sides for about 5-8 minutes or when the bacon begins to shrink a little and the sides turn brown. This should indicate that the bacon is ready to turn the other side. When the bacon strips turn brown, remove it from the the griddle.
