I’ve been doing a series of barbecue related food posts over the last few weeks and KitchenCraft sent me a Home Made Quarter Pounder Burger Press to use during the series. I had never made my own burgers before and was keen to make some as soon as possible. In the end, Dave made the burgers.

Burger Press

The KitchenCraft Home Made Quarter Pounder Burger Press is made from heavy duty metal with a non stick coating with a soft touch handle. Burgers are easy to make by forming the burger mixture into rough burger shapes, putting into the base of the press and then pushing the lid on firmly. The burgers are removed easily from the press and are the perfect quarter pounder size which is great for any barbecue or just burger night at home on the grill!

Is the burger press dishwasher safe?

The press isn’t dishwasher safe but the non stick coating makes it incredibly easy to clean by hand. It also comes in a presentation box which makes it a great idea for a gift. We are huge fans of KitchenCraft products and the press makes creating perfect burgers, all the same shape a size a simple process. Plus, they are so easy to cook afterwards too. Making burgers with a press creates a totally different finish to forming burgers by hand and we haven’t looked back since it arrived.

How to cook a quarter pounder

You can create any type of burgers with the burger press – plain ones, ones with onion in them, ones with cheese inside – the possibilities are endless. But we have been using the press to make Spicy Tomato and Herb Burgers which has a lovely spicy kick to a traditional burger.

If you’d like to make homemade normal burgers you can just use mince or ground beef with some chopped onions or herbs through it. If your burgers fall apart you can use egg mixed into the mince to help bind the patties together. This is a great alternative to fast food – and a cheaper option too! You can even make a double quarter pounder just by making twice as many burgers and layering them in buns. The possibilities are endless!

Add whatever toppings you like to these quarter pounders – salad, American cheese, bacon, gherkins and all inside a sesame seed bun!

This is the Spicy Tomato and Herb Quarter Pounder Burger recipe we use:

Quarter pounder ingredients:

  • 650 g beef mince
  • 3 teaspoons mixed herbs
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • teaspoon chilli flakes

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients until combined.
  • Split the meat mixture into 4 even sized portions. Form into burger shapes or use a burger press.
  • Grill, griddle or barbecue the burgers for approx 8 minutes on each side until nicely browned and cooked through.
