The Cave Tools version of a burger press is about 14” x 10” x 1.5” and is made from thick red silicone. The hamburger press consists of two halves, the lower mould divided into six compartments, and a moulded lid that serves as the press, and has lines to “cut” the meat into separate burgers, as well as a dimple. The burger maker can produce up to six square burgers at a time. The silicone construction makes it fully dishwasher and freezer safe.
This product is one of my favorite BBQ items of all time. It’s so easy to use, sturdy but flexible, you can throw it in the dishwasher after use and can store it in the freezer. You can make up to six burgers at a time with this burger patty maker. You take two lbs of whatever burger meat you prefer, spread it across the six compartments, (It’s worth your while taking your time with this) and then put the top half on. You then simply press it all together, and when the lid is removed you’ll have six perfectly made third-pounders, (Like a quarter-pounder, but 1/3 of a pound, obviously) complete with dimples. If you’re wondering, the dimple has been scientifically proven, apparently, to keep the burgers flat when cooking, which is a good thing.
This is an activity you can do with the whole family, making up the meat recipe, putting it into the hamburger maker, and then taking it to the grill to cook. If you have any left over burgers in the silicone press, or even if you just want to prepare ahead of time, the whole lot can go into the freezer. You can even remove burgers one at a time, as the silicon burger press stays flexible even when frozen solid.
This stuffed burger press is such a great idea, once the burgers are made you start looking for other things to do with it. Of course, the silicone compartments hold any liquid, so you can fill it with left-over stew or soup, and have handy little portions for later. You can even make ice with it, perfect for ice buckets, etc, because unlike ice cube trays, you can actually get the ice out of this press.
Let me also assure you that the square burgers made in this press taste exactly the same as round ones. In conclusion, square is the new round!
