    My employees have really enjoyed using this patty press. We pat our hamburgers fresh and by hand. The Garde HDHP12 made patting out burgers easier and the patties to be more uniform. One of the issues we would have on our hand patted burgers was the time it took to pat out burgers as well as the edges and shape not being consistent. If the edges were "scraggly" and too thin, it would get burned on the grill. This patty press has simplified and made patty making more efficient. I love it!

    This product arrived disfunctional so i guess there is no final check in place. it looks sturdy good machine but we could not get to use it. the pin on the side that releases the patty tray seems jammed or dislocated so that means this product can go in anytime!! i dont see it dependable for burger or fast food place. you would need to get more heavy dutier than this.

    This item was touchy right off the bat, sometimes when pulling the lever and pushing it back the burger would not come back up. 6 months later that is the case all the time. We are able to figure out there is a cheap spring inside not allowing it to function properly. Having trouble finding a new spring to fix it, otherwise would be a great product.
    Thank you for your review, Meghaan! We are sorry this Garde HDHP12 Heavy-Duty 1/2 lb. Hamburger Patty Molding Press with Handle has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

    The kitchen crew is very happy with this. It's very easy to use and easy to clean. Has cut the time it takes to make patties in half and has paid for itself. Hate that we didn't purchase this sooner.
    Perfect press. The 5" size makes the patty large enough to fit all sizes of buns. You can vary meat quantity to fit your requirements and end up with a very consistent product.
    Purchased this product early March 2020. Use it every day. First month worked pretty good. Would stick occasionally when patty would start to come up. Over the last month arm sticks and jams constantly, patty will not come up and the handle is stripped and will not stay on stem. Went from loving the product to looking for help to get replaced ASAP.
    We appreciate your review, Gregg Sibigtroth. We wish this Garde HDHP12 Heavy-Duty 1/2 lb. 5 inch Hamburger Patty Molding Press with Handle would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    Really good and sturdy product. I does an excellent job with my burgers, my only complain is that the handle comes off sometimes, but you just need to put it back again and it works perfect.
    The heavy duty is a necessity to our restaurant. It feels sturdy and very reliable. The product is long lasting and has yet to break down. Good product, can be a little heavy for some workers.
    Great press, very easy to clean. We make six ounce patties with this that come off nice like a smash burger. Plunger comes out to make for easy clean up.
    Great burger press. Works exactly as described. Makes uniform patties every time. The only bad thing is the slide lever doesn’t line up the patty maker every single time.
