I recently bought this Weston Hamburger press.
A tool I percieved to be the "default" hamburger tool for homecookers there in the US. Since it is all over Ebay and Amazon.
The size is exactly how big I wanted the burgers to be, but thats not the final outcome! I use a ground meat ratio of 14% fat and the rest meat.
I throw the burgers on high heat, using nothing but freshly ground pepper and salt on both sides. But they shrink so much! I had to actually find "mini" hamburger buns in the store.
I didnt find any bigger hamburger press than the westons. But I´d like them to be atleast twice as big.
I used to handmold the burgers before, but they never became flat enough, and I prefer them to be perfectly round and even sized.
Is there some sort of magic trick here? Like adding potato starch, or an egg or something to the meat mixture?
