I bought this last summer to make my life a little more easier. Haha. We host a number of cookouts in the summer and it always seems that burgers are one food that is ALWAYS on the menu. I despise having to patty out hamburger and tend to always wait to the last minute to do so. I bought this and was so surprised on how much easier and less messier it was to do. I even pattied out hamburger days before the events and tossed them in the freezer... ;)

Great product! Had a problem with my cooks more pressing burgers flat enough, causing ticket times to drag on. The nice flattened patty cooks 10 times quicker and has nice shape.

Decent hamburger press. I was disappointed with the options of thickness of the patty and the overall design, as I like to do lots of different shapes and sizes. Does a good fast food style patty.

We recently began making our own sausage patties in house. this press has allowed us to produce a uniform product. for ease of cleaning we found that wrapping both the top and bottom plates in plastic wrap prevents sticking of meat.

Just used this today, really like it. Consolidates the meat much better (and much thinner!) than by hand. Didn't use any waxed paper or plastic film, and yes the patties stick to the press, but they weren't too hard to take off because they were so well pressed together. I set the press to the thickest setting, seemed to take just under 4oz of meat, but not a big deal if you put too much either, it just squeezes out the edge. Ideally, it could be set even thicker in my opinion, to make for instance a thicker 6oz burger too.

Like this burger press a lot. Makes equal size patties with minimal effort. By putting payment paper underneath the patty and by covering the lid with plastic wrap the patty doesn't stick to the press.

My husband was happy to see this sitting on the counter for him. I complained how fat the burgers always were. Now he can press them flatter for me. Really like!!!

The press works well I use this to make our housemade sausage patties with the press to almost the thinnest setting. I will agree that the press needs to lined with plastic wrap. Also this press must be hand washed we had someone run it thought the dishwasher one time and it completely tarnished.
Kenneth J. Posted on 03/07/2015
works good, you need to put plastic wrap on one side it will work just fine , u can adjust burger size another great feature !

The product does not work unless you put patty paper both under AND over the meat. If not, the meat sticks to the top and won't come out of the cavity. They could've engineered it better so that you can "pop" the patty out. Having said that, once you figure out this issue and use two pieces of patty paper, then it works fine.

In my restaurant we use it to make some veggie burger, make nice small patty, you can adjust if you need very tiny or not

I use this hamburger maker by adding unions on top and they come out perfect. It is best to get the wax paper for the bottom and top so it doesn't stick. Great machine to use. Douglas Hall

I purchased this so that I would have uniform hamburgers. I have found that this works best if you use the patty paper (wax sides touching meat) when forming the pattys. If you purchase this item I would definitely buy the patty paper as well from Webstaurant.

The aluminum hamburger press works perfect everytime. Great for making a lot of burgers and having them consistent with each other. The adjustable thickness knob makes changing thickness simple.
Thomas B. Posted on 12/05/2013
this press is great and faster than making hamburgers by hand. Just put in a half cup of burger and press burgers turn out great.
Thomas W. from TRW Posted on 11/12/2013
This is a great burger press that is perfect for burger parties and BBQs. It makes preparation really simple and quick especially when there are many people over.
Savannah S. Posted on 10/22/2013
As per some of the other reviews: why didn't I buy this earlier? You can adjust the patties thickness and it allows to make perfect burgers every time and what I've also found out that they stay flatter when they cook (ie: more even instead of having a lump in the centre"). I recommend that you buy the patty paper, put it on the base before the meat and wrap the top part with plastic wrap. It makes removing the patty way easier. The cast iron one may be better for a restaurant setting but for home use this one is simply a no brainer at that price.

The greatness of this product nearly brought me to tears the first time I used it. It truly makes life so much easier, and a heck of a lot happier, as well.

This is a nice hamburger press that is perfect for making consistent patties every time. It is perfect for controlling your valuable food costs. Use plastic wrap for easy cleaning.

Don't even get me started on how amazing these hamburger presses are! Americana Metal craft, yet again makes another amazing product!! The burgers come out great and they don't stick!
James B. Posted on 11/13/2012
This is great for BBQ's. Instead of spending lots of money on pre-made hamburgers, I can use the press and customized my own burgers for everyone.
Laura B. Posted on 11/11/2012
I purchased this when I decided to make my own turkey burgers - it took a few tries to find the perfect amount of meat to use but the results are so nice compared to hand forming. Every patty is the same size and thickness so they all cook evenly.
Amanda K. Posted on 09/16/2012
What a good investment. Able to make thinner burgers for the children and larger ones for the adults. Looks nice when all the burgers are the same shape! Small flaw, must use wax paper on top in order to prevent ground beef from sticking.
Michele S. from church Posted on 05/04/2012
This is an incredibly reasonanly price hamburger press. great for restaurants that make their own hamburger patties. a lot quicker than just using your hands. better for uniformity too.
Tom M. Posted on 03/25/2012
Wow, great value for the money! Not something that you would use if you were going to manufacture patties for a living, but if you do a couple of dozen to a hundred a day, this is the perfect little gadget. Very light (aluminum), but durably constructed to last a long time.
