How long do you cook bacon in the microwave?

Answer

The length of time required to cook bacon in the microwave is all dependent on the amount to be cooked and the instructions provided on the package, if any. As there are a number of varieties of bacon, each varying in thickness, length and consistency, the amount of time needed to thoroughly cook the bacon in the microwave will vary. Should the bacon be microwavable, an average time of four to six minutes for six slices is suggested, with a rotation of the bacon at the three-minute mark to ensure even cooking.

As four to six minutes is only a suggestion and recommendation, the total wattage of a microwave will also affect the length of cooking time. If unsure, people should routinely check the bacon being cooked to ensure the finished product is to their satisfaction.
