Double Burger Press

Doublepress

About once a month or so I regret my tech ineptitude, which consists of a skill set just above thinking the slide-out tray on my hemisphere iMac is for drinks.

Today's one of those days, 'cause if I could erase everything but the item I'm featuring from the picture above, I would, featuring it as a "What is it?"

But alas, I can't do that so here you go.

From the website:

    Double Burger Press

    Double burger press forms perfect patties every time.

    Cut cooking time in half by making two 1/2 lb. burgers simultaneously.

    Circular ridges give burgers a professional appearance and trap seasoning and sauces.

    Just place patties inside and press.

    Plastic.

Wanna know what I like best about this device?

No?

Then stop reading 'cause here it comes....

Those little raised bumps on the top half which I assume are meant to carry the iconography of "sesame seed bun" into your retinal cells and from there on back to the optic cortex, thus making the tool even more subliminally appealing.

$14.98 (yes — one pound of hamburger is included. What's wrong with you, anyway? Wake up and smell the salmonella. But I digress.)

I'm reminded of one of the all-time great sports nicknames.

Chuck Knox, who coached the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams, always preferred to run the ball.

His nickname?

"Ground Chuck."

Won't half the cooking time at all. It'll only halve one part of the preparation time - a fairly minor part, at that.
