Product Review: Burger Pocket Press

This week I had the chance to review the Burger Pocket Press.  The Burger Pocket Press is a 4-piece kit that is made of Food Grade ABS Plastic, it’s dishwasher safe and made here in the U.S.  It’s popular for its ability to make perfectly sealed, stuffed burgers, but you can also use the kit to make “cup” burgers or simply as a device to form perfect 4″ patties from 1/4″ – 3/4″ thick.

I’ve attempted making stuffed burgers myself several times in the past, but it’s always a bit frustrating trying to form out the patties and get the toppings stuffed in correctly and then seal it all up.  The Burger Pocket Press made this process a breeze and after practicing a couple times, I was easily able to put one together in less than 2 minutes.  To test this device out, I chose to make apple & brie stuff burgers.  They came out really, really good.

A couple quick points to note:  the plastics of the 4 pieces felt nice and sturdy and  the handles of the flat press and pocket press also provided plenty of grip and didn’t feel flimsy whatsoever (you can see that in the video below).  Also, there is very little cleanup involved and though though they are dishwasher safe, it was easier to just quickly wash them by hand.

In addition to the pics and video review I’ve provided below, be sure to check out more info on the company’s website, Facebook or Twitter.  You can also purchase the Burger Pocket Press on Amazon HERE.

Step 1:  1/3 cup ground beef into the ring then press with the flat press to form the top patty.

Step 2: 1/2 cup ground beef into the bowl then pressed with the pocket press to form the pocket.

Step 3:  Add your toppings, fillings, or whatever you want to call them…I used green apple bits and brie.

Step 4:  You’ll see this last step better in the video, but place the ring back in with the bowl that has your bottom patty and fillings, then place the top patty on top and press down with the flat press.  Voila, a perfectly sealed, stuffed burger patty.

    I have tried out at least 4 different “burger stuffing tools” and the Burger Pocket Press is the only one that I have kept and still use. I’ve had mine for about 2 years and your assessment is right on the money, they are well made and can handle a good bit of use.

    I can make them just as well by hand, but about half the time I break out the Burger Pocket Press instead because I want to do it the easy way or my son wants to help out and design his own burger.

      Not a bad idea having your son help out! My girls are 3 & 4, but hey, never to early to get them started making some legit burgers with their daddy! 🙂 It’s also good to hear that you’re happy with the Burger Pocket Press now that you’ve been using it a while. And you’re right…if ya put in the effort, it’s not to hard to make them just as well by hand, but this little device certainly makes it a lot easier..
