Disclosure: I received these products complimentary in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Food blogger burger confession: unless I’m making some fancy burger, we typically buy frozen patties. (Gasp!) I know, I know. We’re under no illusions that the frozen burgers you get in the store are just as good as ones you make at home, but for me, burgers are usually a quick meal and trying to deal with getting uniform patties quickly is always a turn off.
And, I’ll fully admit, when I received this Aluminum Burger Press from Cave Tools to review, I thought this would go into my pile of cooking tools for special occasions. I was so, so wrong. I loved it so much that I immediately bought another to give as a Christmas gift!
This burger press is awesome. It helps you make uniform patties super quickly – and they include 200 burger papers which help immensely with cleanup.
The idea is easy – put a burger paper down, place your ball of ground meat on top, add another burger paper, and press down.
The burger paper largely keeps the raw meat from touching the burger press – which makes it easier to wash! – and then makes it super easy to transfer the patties to a plate to be cooked.
Quick tip to stretch your burger papers: Once you’ve transferred a finished patty to a plate, you can peel off the top paper and use it (raw-meat side up) as the bottom paper for the next burger.
We all relished the fresh-made burgers on a weeknight. My next project is to try freezing my own burgers – with the press and the burger papers, I think it will be a breeze!
And who doesn’t want a quick and easy way to whip up burgers? (I’m not drooling – you’re drooling!)
