I love a good burger every now and again, but when I make them at home they usually end up too small for the bun; even when I try to make the patties larger, knowing they’ll shrink when cooked. Not anymore! With my new Burger Press, I can get perfect burgers at home every single time.

So let’s talk about this Burger Press. It has to be one of the greatest additions to my arsenal of kitchen tools. Made by Cave Tools, the Burger Press yields six perfect, 1/3 pound, square burgers. Simply prepare your burger mix, spread it into the burger press, put the top/lid in place, and voila! Your burgers are ready for the grill (or pan).
The lid has a built in burger dimpler, which is scientifically proven to ensure your hamburgers stay flat and cook evenly. And while this is a great feature, it’s not even my favorite. What I like most about the Burger Press is that I can prepare the burgers well ahead of time, refrigerate or even freeze them in the Burger Press, and cook when I’m ready. If you meal prep, or are planning a party or BBQ, this will definitely come in handy.
The first time I used my Burger Press, the process was easy and straight forward to follow. Our burgers came out great, with the exception of next time I’ll use more beef. I used about a pound and a half of beef because you’re not supposed to overfill it, but my burgers came out with a few bare spots. That’s an easy fix though and next time I’ll just use more beef for bigger, juicier burgers!
Other than that, they kept their shape (which is great for using a whole piece of cheese), and prep and cleanup was a breeze. The Burger Press is dishwasher safe, so of course that’s right where it went after dinner.
Ready to make your own perfect burgers? You can purchase one directly from Cave Tools for $19.99 and when you use promo code BURGER15, you’ll get 15% off. Or if you’re an Amazon junkie like me, you can get one for just $9.99 (plus Prime shipping).
Not only would this Burger Press make the perfect addition to your own kitchen, but the holidays are right around the corner and it would make a great gift to anyone who loves to BBQ. Have anyone on your list who you think would love one (or two)?
Do you struggle to get the perfect burger at home?
