If you do not mind the time requirement, the energy consumption (argueably greater with the oven), and the comparative inconvenience of oven-cooking versus microwaving, this oven-method of preparing bacon in relatively large quantities is fine. However, I prefer our years-old but still available Nordic Ware Slanted Microwave Bacon Tray - "in stock" at Amazon.com . With properly layered paper towels, I can easily handle up to 0.5 lb of halved bacon strips. Each layer consists of 4-6 such individual, non-overlapping strips. For my wife and myself, I place 4-6 strips on a paper towel and then cover the strips with another paper towel. With a little experience, you can easily determine the length of microwaving-time required per strip for a desired degree of bacon crispness or non-crispness. The time-range for our 4-6 strips with our microwave is usually 4-6 minutes depending on the doneness desired - from undercooked to crisp (usually the latter).
