Pick up this quality Weber kit from Home Depot yesterday and made dinner with it - delicious! The kit includes one Burger Press, one Weber Essentials Stainless Steel Spatula, one Weber Gourmet Burger Seasoning shaker and an amazing set of Quick Tips. I know the press alone is like $10 but the gourmet burger seasoning just made the burger sing and it worth it for the price alone. The spatula is of the usual high Weber quality and everything was packaged into a very nice box. There was a pile of them stacked up near grilling section of the store but for some reason does not show up in online search. I will upload recipe later but here's the only info I could find about the kit online -

this is not the kind of press you are thinking about - this one is plastic and it is used to form the burgers into either 1/4 or 1/2 patties. The nice touch it that it forms the dimple in the middle of the patty so that the final result is a nice flat burger and not puffed up in the middle.

I have updated the original post with links to the kit items since there isnt a whole lot of info for the kit itself.

I opened up one of these in the store last week when they first went on clearance. The quality is very low, especially for Weber.

The flipper is a cheap stamped steel. The press looked similarly cheap with very thin plastic. It allows a 1/4 lb or 1/2 lb burger to be made. The 1/4 lb is very thin given the large diameter. The half pound is massive. It would have been much better suited to have a 1/3 lb size. There are much better presses available that allow one to do different weights or even stuffed burgers.

The seasoning was probably fine. It was just a medium sized bottle, so not worth $5 alone.

Seriously, do we really need a tool for making burgers?

take two of those circle covers for the take out soup containers. put the meat in between and use the two lids to make a perfect circle patty.

Sure. Form a round ball of hamburger approximately the size of a tennis ball. I suggest a high quality 85 to 90 percent fat content for best flavor. Place the burger ball in your arm pit, bend your arm at the elbow, then quickly lower your arm as if trying to make a fart sound. This can be done right at the grill avoiding messing up the kitchen counter area.

Anyone have any ideas for making the dimple?
