Top Customer Reviews
After reading some of the other reviews, I have a couple of comments.
- The Dimple is important. Have you ever noticed that burgers tend to "dome" up while cooking? The dimple prevents this from happening. This explains why Costco has a hole in the middle of their pre-pattied burgers. If they didn't, the burgers would end up like a baseball. The thicker the patty, the greater the "dome" effect.
- This press is dishwasher safe. Need I say anything else.
- The removable dimple insert is a great addition. After pressing, simply remove and flip your patty where ever you want it.
- Regarding meat, I would highly recommend from ground chuck. If you must used ground beef, you want at least 15% fat to give it some flavor.
- Although the press is made of plastic, it's plenty sturdy enough to press a patty.
Great press. Definitely worth the $5 amazon has it listed at.
I have my doubts as to whether the dimple attachment actually works in terms of getting you an un-swelled in the middle burger, but it served a more important function...it lets you lift the formed patty out of the lower "form" of the set. This is a big plus because hamburger really likes to stick to this plastic and I would hate to have to try to dig a patty out of the form. Even with the dimple attachment, getting the formed patty away from between the dimple attachment and press lid can be a little tricky...occasionally you damage a patty.
Not a huge deal, but it is true.
I have tried spraying the parts with cooking spray and that helps for a few burger, but it does not last very long. The hamburger grease is pretty sticky and soaks up the oil. (Both are fats, but oil is a liquid and grease (fat) is a very viscous and sticky semi-solid.)
Thought about cutting some waxed paper disks to use between burger and plastic parts, but maybe that would be over-analyzing an annoying, but minor problem.
I wish the burger-facing areas of this device were Teflon coated. I think that that would reduce the sticky burger/poor release problem.
Nevertheless, this thing works very well and I strongly endorse it to anyone who grills burgers.
When we make them we lay a sheet of plastic wrap underneath with half hanging over, make the paddy, flip it over and fold the other half of the plastic wrap and its sealed ready for storage or keeps the burgers from sticking together. Uncooked, a pattie is 4.5 inches in width. Very quick without a mess.
Super nice invention!
Update: unfortunately last night this press bit the dust. Either I pushed too hard or it had a weak spot. Either way, part of the press with the handle split exactly in half. The handle is still together, its the plate part that split perfectly down the middle. I guess it isn't as strong as I had though. Something to be aware of when purchasing...
