Yea! A solution to my cookie problem and it won't cost me a cent since I already have my meat smasher. Thanks Katie.

Yep, you can press out patties and freeze them. Then you wouldn't need to thaw them out to make burgers -- just throw how many patties you want on the grill/skillet.

If you just slap the hamburger into the freezer, then you have to thaw it all out in order to form into a patty. Of course, you can still hand form patties individually and freeze 'em, but having all the patties uniform makes it easier to cook 'em.

'zactly what we did when I was a kid. My Mom had a wooden burger press, all cute with a Dutch motif on the front. My job was to cut waxed paper sheets a little larger than the press, ball up the meat, and press it down between two sheets. Put those off to the side, repeat, stack...until all the meat Mom mixed up was gone. Then came the day when she bought The Tupperware Hamburger Press!



No more waxed paper, just the stackable burger container, a containment ring, and a handled plunger. Suddenly, making burgers went all modern! Modern a la the 1960s!

LOL Cooking Goddess - don't think mine came from Tupper Ware, but was very similar. Plastic cylinder with plastic discs to separate. The bottom screwed off to remove the stack when you were finished. The 'press' was more of a plunger.

Trouble was - if you didn't 'press' evenly your burger discs were uneven.

Min is metal and wooden handle and I got it off 75% due to the store celebrating something, so it cost me 5 buck.

I use it to make burgers and freeze.

Rocklobster, that's the one I had! Only mine was red, but can't imagine getting it from K-Tel... but you never know. It was so long ago, late 60's or early 70's.
