Tips: use COLD burger to minimize sticking. Put patty paper on the bottom, load your burger, put another piece of p-paper on top of the burger then press. Adjust the top plate to the weight of burger you want just to the point of having very little burger seep out of the patty paper. I like 5 oz. burgers so instead of weighing the meat or having to scrape excess burger away to have good looking sides, I bought a Vollrath (47139) Stainless Steel Disher - Size 6. My patties averaged 5.2 oz. The disher is built like a tank and the burger fell cleanly out of the scoop with one pull of the trigger. Each disher size number gives a particular amount of product.. The patties shrunk to just the right size after grilling. No overhang or bare bun to eat. Grilled my 5 oz ers at 2.5 minutes/side and delish!
The Weston makes pressing a mechanical operation. It always applies consistent pressure over the entire patty when you press the plunger. But note this: If you pile the meat on one side, or if you make a misshapen pile of meat to start with, nothing will make a perfect patty – make it into a ball and flatten it between your palms a little bit before placing in the center of the patty press area. Another tip: use patty papers (wax paper) beneath and on top of the meat; if the meat sticks to the papers, give the papers a quick squirt of cooking spray – or my preference, a quick spritz of canola oil with a Misto Frosted Glass Bottle Oil Sprayer (on Amazon). Patty papers eliminate cleanup issues, too.
The press unit is sturdy and easy to use, and can accommodate a wide range of patty thickness. A nice feature is that it makes every patty the same thickness (if your meat is measured out pretty much the same), eliminating human error with that. It's also quick, so you don't have to devote a lot of time to pressing patties.
One more note. It's not like other presses. If you get this thing, sit down and take it apart as if for cleaning, and reassemble. Understand how it works instead of just going at it out of the box and you'll get the results you want. RTFM! :)
The only (slight) minus is that it doesn't store in a small space, and it doesn't break down into smaller pieces to store. Be prepared to find a place for this thing if your kitchen storage space is already crowded.
It's not cheap but I think it's worth it.
