Bacon on a black plate.
For A Mess-Free Bacon Experience, Cook It In A Pot

The mess created while cooking bacon can be off-putting. Fortunately, you can avoid most (if not all) of this mess by changing your cookware.

Rather than using your standard skillet, consider switching to a deeper pot. The higher walls contain the fat splatters, keeping your kitchen clean and your hands safe.

Another perk of using a pot is the increased capacity. You can load the pot with more bacon rather than cooking a few strips at a time.

You will have to drain the rendered fat several times, though, and might need to move the strips around more frequently to crisp them up.

You may need to use different utensils, such as longer grilling tongs, to flip the strips efficiently. Use it to stir and flip your bacon so both sides of each strip can fully cook.
