Bacon is a food that seems to have transcended from a common breakfast food to a god-like deity. From this love of bacon has sprung insanely unhealthy snacks and a lot of memes.

Watch 50 seconds of bacon being perfectly sliced by a razor-sharp blade spinning at 2,000 RPM. The Textor TS700-UB high-speed involute blade slicer is what every bacon enthusiast should be putting on their Christmas list. Sure, the thing probably weighs several tonnes and won't fit under the tree but it's a high-speed bacon slicer! This purpose-built machine turns slabs of whole bacon, sausage, and salami into perfect slices ready for packaging.
Some statistics put the United States bacon consumption up to as much as 8 kilograms of bacon per person per year. But perhaps this is not that much when you consider bacon to be one of the most versatile meats to cook with. It can be added to almost any type of cuisine from carbonara to kimchi fried rice and is a super high source of protein for that packs a flavor punch without breaking the bank. For the serious bacon addicted there are so many more ways to enjoy bacon like cinnamon buns with added bacon strips or chocolate coated bacon and whiskey strips.
