PicOfTheWeek: Making Hamburger Patties

I know, I know, I can do it by hand. But my lumpy, misshapen hamburgers don’t look good enough for blog pictures, so I broke down and bought a hamburger press.

Sharing is caring!

Hi! I’m Mike Vrobel. I’m a dad and an enthusiastic home cook; an indie cookbook author and food blogger with a day job, a patient spouse, and three kids who would rather have hamburgers for dinner.

    The best rummage sale item I ever got was a 1950’s-60’s metal “Foodco” hamburger press. 50 cents.

  2. What is the brand of the press? I like the idea of adjustable depth when making burgers for the kids

  3. It’s good, I like it…but it’s also the only one I’ve tried. It’s similar to a tortilla press, and has an adjustable depth – which I always leave set to the same 1/2 inch thickness. The wax papers are expensive, but useful.

    Hey Mike, I’d like to hear your review of the press. I’ve bought and tried a handful and just have not found one that I can give a ringing endorsement to! Maybe some other readers have comments as well.
