Default How do you use a bacon press?

I've been looking at cast iron bacon presses, both online and in stores. Do you have to pre-heat the bacon press? I usually place my bacon in a cold CI frying pan, so it doesn't stick so badly. I also add a few T of water when I first start it cooking, to render out the fat and give a nicer crisp texture to it. Wondering how bacon turns out when cooked with a press?

Do you leave the bacon press on the whole time the bacon is cooking? Most of the ones I've seen in person seem so small, they don't seem to be large enough to do enough bacon for a family of four (including two hungry teenaged boys!).
