Microwave Cake Bake Off
At OXO, we are designers, we are innovators, we are creators, and – above all else – we are enthusiastic snackers (well, maybe not above all else). Our goal is to make tools that make your everyday life better, and that includes snacktime. So when we overheard OXOnians talking about snacking on microwave mug cakes, our ears perked up. We thought, “Wouldn’t it be interesting to see what OXO tools you can use to make a cake in the microwave?” And then, because of our intrinsic need to not only make things well but make them better, we thought we’d make it into a competition to find which products work, and which work best.

How to Make the Crispiest (But Not Greasy) Bacon Ever
There’s nothing quite like waking up to the smell of bacon (or nothing quite like walking past a deli that’s griddling up bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches). But making the crispy, non-greasy, tasty kind of bacon at home can be tough and messy: grease splatters all over the stovetop, bacon bits burn because the pan is too hot, bacon strips get soggy because the pan isn’t hot enough, and most of the grease usually just ends up down the drain.
