Our Perfect Bacon Bowl Review

In our evaluation of the Perfect Bacon Bowl, we found that it worked about as expected. Lining the Perfect Bacon Bowl and creating a bowl out of bacon has limited use for most consumers, but bacon enthusiasts are sure to find creative ways to use such an item as this. The most obvious flaw in the product, however, is not whether or not it works, but it can be easily duplicated by using a regular muffin tin.

Perhaps this “flaw” is the reason the Huffington Post blasted the product back in July with an article entitled, ‘Bacon Bowl’ May Be The Most Useless Gadget We’ve Seen Yet. It’s also possible that this high-profile lambasting could be at least part of the reason for the sudden re-branding of the product.

Bottom Line

The product works, but it’s hard to justify spending nearly $30 for what can be achieved with an inexpensive muffin tin.

    I have used a muffin tin for bacon bowls. The mess is a pain. I am excited about this product not only to make bacon bowls but I can also make cookie and bread bowls. :)

  • Raiden

    Complete SCAM!!! They take your CC information then you CANNOT opt out of buying extra sh-t. When you click support, it times out and you are screwed.

  • Joe

    They charged me and it never showed up. F-ing BS

    • Cheryl

      I got 7 bowls instead of 8 — there is no number to get a hold of these people. The shipping and handling is a joke. Joke’s on me!!!

  • Dee

    Cheapskate’s suggestion: Purchase foil muffin tins/cupcake pan (DollarTree is least expensive), make slits, place upside down on foil lined pan, arrange bacon slices and bake in oven accordingly. No cleaning up…toss the foil after use. Obviously not for use in microwave. Fill with a poached egg or hash browns…yum!

  • maryann

    For easy clean up use foil cake/roasting pan as base and then foil potpie pans as the bowl. Weave your bacon over the potpie pans (this also allows you to make larger bowls then muffin tins if you desire). For microwave use, use pyrex custard cups (glass)and 9×9 (brownie) glass pan. I have used the glass method for years to make cookie and bread bowls.

  • Byron

    Anyone who got charged for extra items did not pay attention when ordering.. I ordered mine online and already received them. They only charged me or the item I ordered and nothing more. Have not tried using them yet, Got one for me and one as a novelty Christmas Gift. If it works woo hoo, if not , o well.

  • Ronda Del BOccio

    You can usually get this sort of thing in Walgreens or other retail stores, thus avoiding the issue of whether or not you were paying full attention to the page when ordering.

    • waffles

      Well said!

  • Donna B

    I THINK THE PRODUCT IS POINT LESS YOU CAN YOU A MUFFIN TIN FOR THE SAME PURPOSE JUST PUT THE MUFFIN TIN IN A CAKE PAN WHEN COOKING BACON. AND AS FOR THE BREAD BOWLS THEY ALREADY BEEN DONE IVE BEEN DOING THAT FOR YEARS ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!ALSO THE FOOD NETWORK DOES STUFF LIKE THAT WITH MUFFIN TINS. IT A BIG WASTE OF MONEY!

  • Debbie

    We received our bacon bowls. The bacon sticks can not get them off tried three times waste of money

  • nichole

    To all of you complainers of them taking your “CC” information, you don’t HAVE to buy it through the phone OR online!!! Wait a couple of weeks and get it at Walmart! Geez!
