The Elizabeth Karmel's Grill Friends Silicone-Coated Burger Press is the first press made with a thumbprint indention to assure even cooking and eliminate burgers that tend to round-out while they cook. Makes a burger that is four inches in diameter and 3/4" deep/thick. As the meat is pressed into a perfect round patty, a bump in the pusher plate makes a small thumbprint in the middle of the patty.
The thumbprint is a little-known restaurant technique; the chef makes the patties and puts an indentation in the middle of the burger with his finger. As the burger cooks and the meat fibers expand, the hole is filled in and you have a perfectly flat, even burger, explains Grill Friends creator Elizabeth Karmel. This is a tip that I have been teaching in my grilling classes for years and it is one of the tips that my students remember and thank me for again and again.
