Will Any Oven Work to Cook Bacon In?

Yes, you can cook bacon in any oven. A convection oven or Air Fry Oven can help you achieve a crisper result more quickly though.

Tips on Cooking Time

Cooking time and results vary depending on how crispy you like your bacon and whether you are using regular or thick-cut strips. Try not to cook the two different cuts at the same time because their cooking times will vary.

How to Cook Bacon in the Oven

Conventional Oven Instructions

For the best results, we suggest following these steps.

  1. Preheat the oven between 350℉ and 400℉. This may take trial and error and varies by oven.
  2. Get a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil
  3. Place the bacon on the aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
  4. Place in the oven. Time varies depending on how crispy you can your bacon. (15 - 25 minutes average)
  5. Pull the baking sheet out and place the bacon on a paper towel on a plate so the grease can the collected.

Air Fry Oven Instructions

If you have an oven or range with an air fry feature, follow these guidelines.

  1. Turn on your oven by selecting the Air Fry function and setting the temperature to 400℉.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil to collect the grease drippings.
  3. Spread your bacon out on an air fry tray and place the tray onto the baking sheet.
  4. Place in the oven once preheated.
  5. Cook for 8 to 14 minutes. Check the bacon after 6 minutes and rotate if desired and check frequently to achieve desired crispness.
  6. Pull the tray and baking sheet out together and let cool.

Easy Cleanup

We highly suggest using aluminum foil on your baking sheet to collect the grease from your bacon. If you are not planning to save your grease, you can leave it on the aluminum foil until it has solidified and then take care of it.

If you are planning to save your bacon grease, let it cool (but not solidify) and then form the aluminum foil into a funnel shape to pour it into a storage container. There are many uses for bacon grease, but one of our favorites is using it to make fried eggs.
