It's simple and works perfectly. It makes 4-1/2" patties, which I use for 4 oz. to 8oz. burgers, using the included 'dimple insert'. Any thinner, the dimple insert can't be used as it'll poke a hole through the patty. I brush the inside with peanut oil, reapplying every 3-4 patties and have very little issue with them sticking.
I've found that the dimple insert does little to help with burger swelling, but it makes removing the patties much easier.
Only complaint is that the top press part is not very durable. My first one broke after two months (probably 30-40 burgers). It's really not strong enough to use as a 'press', despite the title. I now press the hamburger into the bottom a bit before I use the top to flatten and even the patties out in order to reduce the stress at the center. It takes a couple of extra seconds, but it does make perfectly even and consistent patties with little effort. If the top part were more durable, this press would truly be perfect, in my opinion.
As for the white (old version) vs grey (new version), I've had both side by side and I inspected them very closely... they are 100% identical. Plastic is the same thickness, texture is the same, markings are all the same... the only change is the color.
Now, note: This IS plastic and you don't just put a ball of meat in it and press down on the top hard to press the meat out. IT WILL BREAK if you do this. Use a little common sense people. This is an inexpensive item that's helping to make your burger patties more uniform. I (more or less) weigh out balls of my meat mixtures that I plan on patty-ing up to roughly the same weight then place on in the burger press and spread out the meat relatively evenly (doesn't have to be perfect, after all the top press portion is what will smoosh it all together), then press down with the handle portion as evenly as I can. Yeah, a few were a little lopsided but they fried up fine and it definitely made my burgers closer to normal sizes instead of some of them being small and others being overly large. LOL
If you want an inexpensive burger press, this works! I'm very happy with it so far. I've used it with hamburger meat and I've also used it with ground up pork that I made chorizo burgers with. VERY good. Try it! ;-)
Before I got this press, I rarely made hamburgers. Mostly because I don't like handling raw meat, and equally because I struggled to make patties by hand that would turn out the right size and thickness after they were cooked. As luck would have it, I ended up with two kids who decided early on that hamburgers were going to be their most requested meal. Me: "Hey guys, what should we have for dinner?" Them: "Hamburgers!" (Every. Single. Time.) Since we don't really eat fast food, I realized I was going to have to master this whole hamburger patty thing.
Three years ago I bought this press. I was immediately amazed this simple little gadget enabled me to make something I'd been struggling to make forever. I've since made hundreds of perfect patties. I use 4-5 oz. of meat per patty, and the little indentation in the removable lower press plate helps to ensure that the patties don't shrink up too much as they're cooking. I bought a box of waxed patty papers at a restaurant supply store, and I use the papers on the top and bottom of the press -- it helps get the patties in and out of the press, and makes it easy to stack and/or store the patties until you're ready to cook them. When prepping for camping/hunting trips I'll make a bunch of patties at home, put them in resealable bags, and put them in the fridge or freezer for later.
After three years of use, I'm back for a new one. The plastic 'press' piece -- the top, with the handle -- just started to crack. It hasn't cracked all the way through yet, but it's only a matter of time. (It's inexpensive. It's plastic. It happens.) If there were a nonstick metal version with the same design, I'd happily pay more for it.
