Fresh product is the basis to any dish. When it comes to burgers, fresh product means using fresh, local meat and using raw meat means making your own hamburger patties by hand. Making patties isn’t a hard task but it can be very time consuming; especially if your menu features burgers.

Uniform burger patty sizes are important when it comes to cook time, portion control, and ultimately customer satisfaction. Our presses are perfect for making many different burgers, such as hamburgers, veggie burgers, crab cakes and much more. We carry two different brands of patty presses to choose from, ranging from four inch molds to seven inch molds.
How does a food service or restaurant operator determine the type of Bulk Food Container to buy? Here are some considerations to think about.
