Is a bowl-shaped baking dish designed explicitly to mold bacon into baskets for transporting eggs and BBQ pulled pork to my mouth necessary? I don't know, are pants necessary? Necessity may be one, but she is not the only mother of invention.
The Bacon Basket saves bacon lovers from the pedestrian, shriveled-strip method of bacon consumption, without the added hassle of repurposing other kitchen wares, such as muffin pans and round Tupperware containers (plastic is oven-safe, right?) It even has a lip for pooling grease and a notch for pouring the pooled grease over ice cream when you've eaten up your mac 'n' cheese in a bacon basket like a good boy or girl and want a real treat!
