Set the temperature to "low," and let the bacon start cooking. As the bacon begins to heat up, you will notice bacon fat pooling in the bottom of the pan. This helps cook the bacon evenly. If there is too much bacon fat, then you can consider pouring some out into a heat-safe bowl or jar. Do not pour bacon fat down the drain, or you may risk clogging the drain. If you want crispy bacon, consider filling the skillet or frying pan with just enough water to cover the bacon. Set the temperature to "high" instead of "low." When the water begins to boil, lower the heat to "medium," and when the water has simmered away, lower the heat again to "medium low." Continue cooking the bacon in its fat until it is golden-brown in color.
