Shoppers Say This Best-selling Tray Is a 'Favorite Baking Utensil' for Crisping Bacon, Wings, and More in the Oven
Bacon may make everything taste better, but if you've ever cooked bacon in your oven, you know that it can be a messy process. All the grease makes your oven smoky, and it inevitably gets stuck on the bottom of your oven floor. Thankfully, Amazon shoppers have found a "healthy and helpful" tool that makes bacon perfectly crispy without the mess, and it's on sale for a limited time.
The Nordic Ware Oven Crisp Baking Tray measures 17.4 by 12.7 inches, is heat resistant up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and comes with a nonstick wire rack. The removable rack makes food crispier by lifting food out of its fat and allows for air to circulate, so that food bakes more evenly while it's in the oven. One of the best parts of the rack is that it eliminates a step that's frequently found in recipes: flipping food over halfway through baking.
There is more than one way to use the baking tray, too. Besides cooking "perfect bacon," the tray crisps up slices of fruit, chicken wings, fish, and vegetables. Some reviewers even used it for baking meatloaf, smoking meats, and toasting slices of bread. Shoppers also loved that they can use the aluminum tray by itself, and that it has 1-inch sides to catch any residual drippings or grease.

"I absolutely love this tray," one customer said. "I use it [to cook] multiple items... I have used it at least five times and it looks brand new. Very easy to clean. Lightweight yet sturdy. I should have bought this years ago." Another five-star reviewer agreed: "This is absolutely my favorite baking utensil, especially for cooking meats or foods you want to have crispy."
