  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef (80/20 blend for optimal juiciness) 

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 

  • Salt and pepper, to taste 

  • Burger buns 

  • Your favorite burger toppings (lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, etc.) 

  • Condiments of your choice (ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc.) 



1. Prepare Your Burger Press: 

Before we begin, make sure your Andrew James Burger Press is clean and ready for action. The non-stick coating ensures that your patties release easily and maintain their shape, making the burger-making process a breeze. 

2. Season the Ground Beef: 

In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Gently mix the seasonings into the meat until evenly distributed, being careful not to overwork the mixture, which can result in tough burgers. 

3. Shape Your Patties: 

Using the Andrew James Burger Press, divide the seasoned ground beef into equal portions and place one portion onto the bottom of the burger press. Press down firmly with the top of the press to shape the patty, ensuring that it is compact and evenly formed. Repeat this process for each patty until you've used all of the ground beef. 

4. Perfectly Sized Patties: 

The Andrew James Burger Press allows you to create perfectly sized patties that cook evenly and fit perfectly onto your burger buns. Whether you prefer thick and juicy burgers or thin and crispy ones, the adjustable thickness dial lets you customize the size of your patties to suit your taste. 

5. Grill to Perfection: 

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking. Carefully place the burger patties onto the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Resist the urge to press down on the patties with a spatula, as this can cause the juices to escape, resulting in dry burgers. 

6. Build Your Burger: 

Once the patties are cooked to perfection, it's time to assemble your gourmet burgers. Toast the burger buns on the grill for added flavor and texture, then layer on your favorite toppings and condiments. Whether you prefer classic cheeseburgers with lettuce, tomato, and onion or gourmet creations with avocado, bacon, and caramelized onions, the possibilities are endless. 

7. Serve and Enjoy: 

Serve your gourmet burgers hot off the grill and watch as your guests' eyes light up with delight. With juicy patties, flavorful toppings, and perfectly toasted buns, every bite is a symphony of flavors and textures that's sure to leave everyone craving more. Sit back, relax, and savor the satisfaction of knowing that you've just created the ultimate burger experience with the help of the Andrew James Burger Press.

Whether you're grilling up a feast for family and friends or simply treating yourself to a delicious homemade meal, this versatile tool is the key to burger perfection.
