When we have burgers, I make a ⅓ Lb. burger for SO. She likes hers thinner. I make a half pound burger for myself. A patty press wouldn't work for me.

I've never owned a patty press but if I had one I'd probably use it than not.

I use my hands to form, or I use a saucer, inverted, to press patties if I'm looking for uniformity and doing many.

I usually "free hand" but when making a Juicy Lucy, the mold works great. I also use it for giant ice cream cookie sandwiches, but not very often.

I do the same thing but, before pressing the ground meat into the lid, I put a piece of plastic wrap down. After the patty is formed, I simply lift it out of the lid and set it aside to cook or freeze. I return the plastic wrap to use again for as many patties as it stands up to. No mess. Quick and the lid goes into the dishwasher.

I use a Vollrath #8 4oz disher to portion the meat and then form it by hand.

Sorry ms.mofet. I just couldn't wait. I was placing an order with Jet and sure enough they had that particular press. So it should be here tomorrow. Thanks for the lead.
