Delivering good news that could single-handily rescue the year that is 2020. There is now a great tasting, quick, easy and no-mess way to enjoy bacon! And would you believe its faster than a bowl of 2-minute noodles?

Primo’s Microwave bacon takes only 30 seconds to cook without losing any of that delicious piggy flavour you love. Simply take your bacon out of the packaging, pop it on a plate covered by a paper towel, and then microwave for 30 seconds. When you hear that ding, take it out and enjoy.

Once you hit start on that microwave you can hear the bacon, sizzling, and cooking just like you would if it was on a frying pan. But most importantly, and this was crucial for Primo, it tastes just as good as if it came off a frying pan.
