We use this press to patty about 150 patties a week, and we've used it for almost 4 years now. We've waited to write a review because it's important to note that even after a few years of continued use, this thing still works exactly like it did brand new. You can take it apart fully to clean it and get any remnants out of the way, and it screws back together in a few seconds. Works great with the 5" patty papers. We have used it with papers and without, with one paper and with two--whatever works for you, the press will work. It preps a hearty 1/4 pound patty with good edges, and it's thick enough to look good on a sandwich but thin enough to cook efficiently. Great product!

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.

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... ;)

I purchased this to make rabbit burger patties. Works well and forms a nice solid patty. I would highly recommend using patty paper to go with it.

We are burgerholics. This burger press works very nicely to support our habit. We have best results with a combination of pan spray & patty paper while using it.

This hamburger press is solid. If you want perfectly shaped and formed hamburgers patties, this product is a win and you will not be disappointed.

Danielle A. from Revival Eastside Eatery on 10/15/2019

Great Patty Press! We're currently pressing 6 oz burgers with the press using the 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" patty papers. Great Adjust-ability with Easy Cleanup. We don't have it permanently mounted to our counter, and it still works great.

Ryan H. on 08/26/2019

I love how I can adjust the thickness of the patty. Allows me to make kids size burgers and adult burgers without stress. Perfect patty maker

This burger press works great. I used it with the Choice 5" round perforated patty paper and they came out looking professional, and ready to freeze, if necessary. I got this so I could make my own bratwurst burger patties.

Great product for making homemade burgers. This American Metalcraft press makes the perfect size burger patty every time. Easy to use the adjustable dial to create different sizes for a variety of uses. Easy to disassemble and clean.

Eric M. from Barnaby's Of Aston on 03/08/2019

This was a little lighter than we expected. It is aluminum, but it's VERY light. On the bright side, you'll never have to oil it to keep it from rusting. Ours wobbles quite a bit at the hinge, which is annoying but not a big problem.

Jordan P. on 07/09/2018

Great tool for our homemade burgers. This hamburger press assists our cooks to get the job done in a timely manner. The 4 1/2 inch diameter patties that you can create with this machine are perfect for any bun. Overall a great buy.

Cristian A. from Rick's Roadside Cafe on 06/15/2018

Get the perfect portioned patty every time. We use the maximum weight giving us a perfect 5 oz burger every time. You do need to use a little muscle to get all the meat perfectly packed inside so keep that in mind when assigning tasks to employees.

Jennifer B. from The Hungry Seagull on 05/22/2018

This hamburger press is amazing. It makes every patty the exact same size! We rigged ours up using a piece of and screwing it together! Perfect!!

Gina P. from Gina's Cookie Company on 03/12/2018

Got into making my own sausages . Of course hamburger patties are a natural extension of that. get some patty paper and some pan spray spray the inside of the patty press lay down a paper drop your meat on and then go to town.. make one, weigh it, adjust piston to get the weight patty you want then go to town.. well constructed. easy to take apart to clean and disinfect

Don't waste your money. Ground beef sticks to this thing and is very hard to clean. If you want a perfectly uniformed hamburger, buy them. I like mine to look handmade!

I like the fact that the burgers come out the same size each time. The main reason I bought this. I read reviews before purchasing and I spray the press with Pam and the burgers have never stuck. Good price and good product so far

Karen J. on 06/12/2017

Tried this out today and was very happy how the burgers came out. I used 1/4 lb. hamburg on the thickest setting, no more uneven looking burgers. Used the patty paper, also bought on Webstrauntstore and they are ready for the grill.

Lorraine M. from Home Use on 04/22/2017

I was looking to make the perfect burger patty every time!! This product makes the perfect patty, easy to take apart an clean!! I would recommend this over any burger press machine

Daven M. from The Pearl Kitchen on 04/12/2017

Seems like a good Hamburger press. Not sure how long it'll last as it feel rather "cheap" but it does the job well if you don't have a huge amount of hamburgers to press.
