Good question, what are the better hamburger presses that people would recommend. It looks like I may be going the route fairly soon.

Easy frozen beef patties.
Chill a chub/roll/tube of ground meat in a freezer, until it will slice cleanly.
Mark the serving size on the roll in millimeters, because it is easier to divide.
Slice and freeze in a single layer.
Bag the frozen slices in a freezer bag.

My son tried the precooked frozen Angus burgers from Sam's Club and said they were good. Twelve patties for $14.78.

Slicing patties from a chilled chub would be a low mess way to prepare. I am a bit concerned that they could contain pink slime since they are probably not packed locally. I may check into that.

Exactly there is little to no contamination or mess.
There is no weighing,
There is no shaping.
It takes very little time.
And sliced patties seem to cook more consistently.
They lay flat and do not ball up as much when cooking.
Over working ground beef can cause too much density, and uneven density leading to uneven cooking and dry burgers.

The problem with meat in those chubs is they are not locally made. So the packing house is free to use pink slime and they do.

I hate it when something oozes out of my burger and coagulates in a puddle on the side.

A USDA that allows pink slime to be sold as beef is a USDA that belongs to someone other than the consumer.

Pink slime may be used in frozen beef products including hamburger patties and one of my standbys, chimichangos.

I suppose a product such as Bubba Burgers does not use it due to its particular labeling of 100% chuck, Angus, etc. That might be true at the chain grocer as well if you choose ground chuck or ground round.

I don't make burgers in quantity so I use a cheap plastic 'press', really just an indented plate and a flat piece that fits in.
great thread. lots of info.

If they do use pink slime, I am sure that it is 100% Angus slime!
