cuisinart 3 in 1 burger press review: How it’s different
The problem with most burger eaters and cookers is that they settle for basic and sometimes bland patties. Of course it’s a minor problem, but if you have the tongue and technique you might as well expand your horizons.
Imagine a world with different meats, vegetables, spices, herbs, cheeses, and everything else you can think of. That is this world! The Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press allows you to exercise your taste buds, get creative with ingredients and their respective complements, and discover mouthwatering flavors.
All Hail To The Master Of Stuffing Burgers!
What does a chef like to do? Impress. Yes, a more humble answer would have been having everyone leave the table satisfied, but any edible substance is theoretically satisfying from the natural human need for food. There needs to be more reason for someone to kiss the cook. Is it better for your boss to be impressed with your work or just satisfied? Exactly!
You never want to admit that your friends and family or your boss, unless of course the woman of the house is reading this, and we graciously accept her claim (unless she’s not reading this). However, wouldn’t it be nice if they all requested that you make the burgers at the next outing? With the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press you will learn the ins and outs of creating the perfect stuffed burger for all to enjoy!
What’s In The Burger?
What’s In These Burgers, you might ask…Anything you want! Anything that is edible actually, and an allergy check is also recommended before diving into the ingredient pool; we can’t be giving people too much freedom. However, as already stressed, the possibilities are almost endless. You don’t even have to stick to just beef; or, if you’re a tad on the wild side, you don’t even have to stick to one meat in the same burger!
If I could read your mind I would say that you immediately thought of Bacon. Yes, Bacon can be added to almost anything, but with the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press it’s easy to mix in everything from tomatoes to spinach, onions to jalapenos, any cheese imaginable, or everything but the kitchen sink! Oh, and there’s probably a “Kitchen Sink” burger.
THIS STUFFED BURGER PRESS WILL CHANGE THE LIFE OF YOUR BURGERS!
The design of the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press is so simple which means using it is even easier. It has a base for the meat and a lid that presses down. Seriously, that’s just about it.
The lid has a removable cap which is brilliant for two reasons. First, if you don’t want to make a stuffed burger for whatever reason then you can make a perfectly pressed patty in less than a minute. Second, for the full effect, remove the cap to have access to the cavity that creates the crater in the base of the meat, making it incredibly simple to stuff the ingredients into the burger.
With a cleanup that is as simple as cooking, you will be changing the old adage to, “Easy as burgers!”
Small Beef Patties Are So Last Year…
Your backyard isn’t a State Fair, charity event, or stadium – well, for most people it’s not. Therefore, you don’t have to skimp on the size of your burger unless of course you were volunteered to host your family reunion and this was the one year every relative decided to come.
With the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press you can make thick juicy burgers; a meal within a meal! Create mountainous dishes with flavor explosions in every bite. You can alter the size, the taste, the color, and the presentation. People will be lucky to experience these gourmet takes on a classic dish. Your burgers will never be the same, and you won’t have to share the good stuff with your third-cousin who you never knew before he showed up at your house.
It Will Make Cooking Burgers Fun Again…So, Enjoy Yourself
Cooking shouldn’t be a stressful task, unless of course the aforementioned family reunion is upon you, or possibly your first Thanksgiving and you only have one opportunity to impress your in-laws.

That’s exactly what the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press does: it’s easy and enjoyable to use. Because it is so simple, it allows the chef to experiment with ingredients. There are countless combinations to keep you busy in the kitchen and develop a fun and impressive hobby.

This Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press is strong and durable. We’ve come a long way since the first flame-broiled piece of animal, especially linguistically it would appear. However, the cooking concept of heat to meat has lasted since the beginning of man. With that in mind, the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press can withstand high levels of heat.
In addition, the kitchen accessory is incredibly durable which is an amazing benefit because you’re going to want to use it over and over again. The press is made of heavy duty plastic that has been certified as “SOLID” professional grade quality.
With so many variations of stuffed burger recipes, the durability factor is very important because it allows you to be the best burger maker on the block, and trust me, people will be coming back for more!
cuisinart 3 in 1 burger press review: BPA Free Material – Smart, Safe And Sensible!
One of the main concerns of plastic kitchenware is whether or not the accessory contains Bisphenol A, a common chemical used to harden plastics. We are still unaware of definite effects caused by the chemical, but we have come to the point where it does pose risks to one’s health. It can affect the brain, gland, and behavior if someone is overexposed. With that being said, the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press is proud to say that the product is BPA free!
It’s easy to use, safe, and very easy to clean. You can hand wash the press or simply put it in the dishwasher because it is also dishwasher safe to add to its list of great benefits. This is perfect for entertaining so you don’t have to spend time in the kitchen after dinner which means more time spent with friends and family.
Benefits of the cuisinart 3 in 1 burger press
We touched on the fact earlier that cooks love to impress their diners. There is satisfaction in praise because you know you’ve made people happy, especially their taste buds. Though a chef loves to impress, it’s also impressive in the eyes of others that you can create a wonderful meal for all to enjoy.
When it comes to burgers, there is also a sense of competition. The grill is a respected area that men argue to be in charge of, and meat is their forte so using the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press puts you one step ahead of the rest.
I personally believe one of the most flattering ways a person can complement the chef is by asking for the recipe. It’s natural to be hesitant to share your creations, but it’s a very genuine form of praise, and if you trust the source, then feel free to give away your secret!
“The Endless Variety Of Burgers!”
The benefits of using this burger press are out of this world! You will create the most creative, mountain high, flavorful, stuffed burger creations you or your friends have ever seen! So, Put on your apron, and be a creator and artist of your new burger world! The only limit is your imagination and creativity!
A Perfect Pressed Circle…Every Time!
A burger is pretty basic to make and is noticeable to everyone. No one has ever asked, “Hey, what’s this round thing on the plate?” However, how often do you see a perfectly round burger outside of a freezer at the grocery store? Rarely.
The Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press has a solid round design that allows you to create a perfect sealed circle of a STUFFED, BEEFED UP patty. One of the rare complaints people have ordering a hamburger while dining out is that the bun does not match the size or shape of the patty. This is different than the hot dog and hot dog pun packaging ratio conundrum; this is something that can be fixed with the right tool. You have that tool now!
I was always one to shape the patties with my hand, cupping the meat and packing it tight, but this burger press just makes it so much easier to make quality presentable burgers!
No need to worry about these burgers falling apart…”We got your back on that!”
Another great benefit of the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press design is that it compresses your patty seamlessly. Sometimes when the burgers are truly handmade, they tend to break apart after the addition of sauces or seasonings. This press holds everything into place so no flavor is lost!
Also, when everything is packed tightly then the burger cooks evenly. There are no cracks for heat to filter through and overcook one portion of the dish and leave the other close to raw. All meat and all ingredients stay together, and your family and friends still get to enjoy the insanely delicious meal together!
“Clean As A Whistle”, But Not As Loud!
We’ve already discussed how the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press is BPA free and is easy to clean because it is non-stick, does not create a mess, and is dishwasher safe, but one of the most overlooked benefits of the kitchenware is that it is small.
The accessory measures 5” x 5” x 2” and only weighs a measly 1.9 ounces! It is easy to store and move around your kitchen or out to the grill, and, if you’re willing, you can transport it easily to an outdoor barbeque at a park of over to a friend’s or family member’s house. That way you can say, “Don’t worry, I can take it from here now,” when the burgers turn out unmatched to your delicious creations.
Clean and small: this product packs a lot of bang for its size and can be stored away easily if you want to keep your secret safe from the rest!
THERE’S ANOTHER TYPE OF BURGER ON THE MENU
We all know that beef is the primary meat in a hamburger though it specifically says ham right there in the name. However, that is a different topic, but it also raises a good question. What other meats can your Burger Press shape?
All of them! Ground beef, turkey, chicken, bison, pork, anything really, even fish patties. Imagine a perfectly round crab cake. Hmm… magnificent!
This also opens up new doors for ingredient combinations, and don’t forget that it’s not uncommon to mix meat with meat. Ever heard of a bacon cheeseburger? Case and point. Ever heard of stuffing bacon and cheese into the burger before grilling? Because you can!
There are other alternatives to meat, more meat, and cheese to make burgers though. I know, it sounds a tad odd, but it’s true and they are just as tasty!
Let’s start with the stuffing. You can use spinach, tomatoes, or any other vegetable; you can enhance the flavor with chopped onions, mixed garlic, and jalapenos; and you can season with herbs and spices so they release their aromas from the inside. Mmmmmm…Delicious! 😉
Of course there is the other alternative which includes no meat at all. Portobello mushrooms, potato, corn, soy, tofu, nuts and grains, and beans can all be made into patties and shaped to perfection in this Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press, again expanding the possibilities and your cooking repertoire.
No Grill, No Problem
What if it rains? What if it’s too windy? What if I don’t have any propane or charcoal? What if a stray or wild animal is in the backyard and I’m scared to face it? How am I supposed to cook my burgers then? All valid questions and there is one answer: Stay in the kitchen!
Three easy alternatives to the grill are broiling the patties in the oven on a broiler ban, using a griddle or pan on the stovetop, or actually steaming them in pot. Use your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press to create your mouthwatering masterpiece and then stay inside and use the other handy accessories in your kitchen to cook up a quick meal!
Dinner For All! “The Possibilities Are Endless!”
We live in a unique world which means there are different likes and tastes surrounding us, probably even in the same room as yourself. Therefore, this Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press provides every chef with a variety of options.
Vegetarians can be happy with a meat alternative such as tofu, vegans can get excited about black bean burgers, gluten-free individuals can simply forego the bun, and lactose-intolerant people can swap other cheeses with goat cheese or leave it out altogether, and so on.
It’s amazing the healthy and sensitive alternatives that can be made when cooking a burger. People will appreciate catering to their requests, even if they feel bad about changing the course of a meal due to their diet or allergies, but you won’t mind because it’s easy to do.
On the other hand, what about the children? Won’t someone please think of the children? Depending on their age and appetite, you’re able to decide on an appropriate size to form in your burger press, and you can make their burgers fun and exciting. Also, you can sneakily stuff in something healthy they normally would despise like beans or vegetables. Shhhhhh! I won’t tell if you do…It’s a win-win if you keep it to yourself. 😉
HOW TO USE YOU’RE BURGER PRESS
Easy As 1-2-3
Being a master burger stuffer doesn’t have to be hard; it’s actually quite simple. You can make delicious burgers in a matter of three easy steps! We already covered the simple design of the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press, now let’s talk quickly about how to use it. You have your ingredients ready so it’s time to make some burgers!
1) Prepare your meat by dividing into sections and rounding into balls. Try not to exceed a ½ pound. Then divide each ball into a large piece and a slightly smaller one; about 60%/40% give or take.
2) Place the larger piece of meat in the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press. Next, remove the bottom cap from the top lid to access the cavity creator. Press down on the meat making a perfectly round and deep crater directly in the center, and then add the ingredients of your liking to the hole.
3) Take the smaller piece of meat and seal the top, trapping the ingredients within. Re-cap the top lid to create a flat base once again, cover and press down. Make sure to trim any excess meat that forms around the rim. Remove the lid and simply release the burger by pressing on the bottom tray. Transfer to a clean plate for seasoning then it’s off to the grill or pan!
The Steps and Process
There’s More To It!
Stuffed burgers can be a meal in their own; I believe we have covered that so far. However, there are always seemingly necessary additions that truly make this classic dish nostalgic: the bun, lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup and/or mustard. But what if we could liven it up a little? Good thing we can.
There are a variety of buns on the market that can make a wonderful addition to your burger. You could try a potato bun, pretzel roll, brioche, or English muffin amongst others. There are buns with sesame seeds and other grains and flavors as well. Maybe spread a little butter on each side and toast briefly and you have the perfect complement to the patty you just created in the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press.
Regarding the toppings, just take the approach you did with your patty: Do anything you want! However, for more conventional reasons, try replacing the lettuce with spinach or kale, the tomato with something creative like eggplant or a slice of pineapple, the onion with radish slices or slivers of garlic, and the ketchup and/or mustard with barbeque sauce, mayo, or ranch!
You can be just as creative on the outside as you can on the inside. So have fun and “Think Outside the Box!”
When you think of burgers you don’t usually affiliate gourmet with, whether it be the taste or atmosphere. Outside with the fixings atop a table and a paper plate to hold your meal is a common setting. Now that you’re experienced with your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press, you might as well go all out!
Presentation matters, well sometimes, but for this section’s sake it does. Let’s say you made a turkey burger stuffed with feta, onions, and spinach. You placed a sliced tomato and an avocado wedge on top and stick everything between a divided buttered brioche. This deserves a classy display! Position nicely on a plate and garnish with fresh parsley or oregano. Even better yet…get a stick of rosemary and push it down the middle of the burger to hold together the masterpiece you’ve just created! People will rave about their dining experience, and you can stick around for the “Standing Ovation!” but don’t forget to leave room for sides and to pair with your favorite drink!
Of course, as stated, presentation only sometimes matters. If you’re making delicious stuffed burgers then the setting really doesn’t matter.
THE “STUFF” OF PRO’S
Marinade That Meat
One of the wonderful aspects of meat is that it’s very versatile. So many flavors can combine to give you a delightful taste, and even ingredients like onions and garlic are also adaptable enough to go with any meat or vegetable. It’s a win-win! However, the key to juicy flavorful patties is marinating.
Marinating is a technique that comes highly-recommended. The pros do it all the time and the reason being is so the meat soaks up all the flavor, but one important aspect to marinating is time. The longer the burger soaks, the more flavor it absorbs. Sometimes I even marinate 24-hours in advance!
With the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press it’s easy. First make your delicious patty, marinade in your choice of sauce*, and then wrap to store or place on the grill or pan. Either way, the flavor will give your burgers an extra pop! Worcestershire sauce, honey, teriyaki, barbeque, the possibilities are endless!
*you may also marinade the meat before using the burger press.
Be An Inventor
When it comes to what sauce and spices to marinate your burgers there are plenty of options, but Worcestershire sauce is a dependable go-to flavor enhancer. However, don’t be hesitant to get creative.
Let’s say you make pork patties stuffed with minced garlic and chopped onions in your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press. It’s delectable already, but try making a mixture of chili paste (not a lot) and some pineapple juice. Splash with soy sauce to moisten and serve as a salt substitute as well, and let the burger soak in the flavor. Put a strip of bacon and a sliced pineapple on top and sandwich them between a sesame bun and you have an insanely delicious burger!
Don’t forget about seasoning though. Salt and pepper are the Worcestershire sauce of the rub world, and that’s not an insult, it’s a compliment to their necessity. However, if we take our above burger and season the meat with some red pepper and cilantro then it definitely gives it an extra kick!
Precision is a great attribute of master chefs and grillers. The right combination of flavors, the right amount of ingredients, and the right amount of time all come into effect.
Some flavors don’t mesh well, and any recipe you find will already avoid those mishaps, and if you’re creating your own then you will find out through trial and error. Good thing the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press is durable enough to withstand many trials, errors, and successes! Also, be aware of the amount of ingredients you use, especially with marinades. You don’t want to make it too heavy or too moist to the point where it will break apart.
In addition to ingredients and preparation, you must also be precise with your cooking. Different meats require different times on the grill or pan, and eaters have different tastes and styles they prefer. Here is a small table for reference:
|DONENESS||BEEF & LAMB||POULTRY||PORK|
(Cool Red Center)
(Warm Red Center)
|130-135 Degrees||n/a||145 Degrees|
(Warm Pink Center)
|135-140 Degrees||n/a||150 Degrees|
(Slightly Pink Center)
|140-150 Degrees||n/a||155 Degrees|
(Little or no Pink)
|155+ Degrees||165-175 Degrees||160 Degrees|
Don’t undercook, don’t overcook, don’t make them too moist, and don’t make them too dry. It takes precision to be a pro.
Master chefs and grillers are also incredibly confident in the kitchen. They know what tastes good and they know how to please their diners!
We spoke about the durability of the Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press and also its easy-to-use design, and both will help you discover what works and what doesn’t. If you’re experimenting and you’re just not sure if your creation will taste good then make one patty so you don’t use up all your ingredients and split amongst friends and family members as a taste test. If it’s good then you can make more in no time, and if it’s bad then on to the next test!
Eventually you will master recipes and get an understanding for the basic ingredients that complement each other and which sort of meat or cuisine. Just like anything, it takes practice to become a pro.
You will know when you’re a master, and you will know when people know you’re a master. Word will spread of your burgers and skill, people will claim you’re the best and beg you to open a restaurant to share your talents with everyone. Okay, we may be getting carried away right now, but the point is that you’re good at making burgers.
With that being said, be humble and accept praise graciously. You can even say it’s all because of the Cuisinart Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press to direct the attention off you, but we all know that the you have the skill and the gadget just makes it easy for you to be pro!
PUTTING UP THE LEFTOVERS
Wrap It Up
Food storage is actually a science. Well, maybe not actually, you can’t major in it or anything, but the proper way to seal your leftovers and organize your refrigerator is important knowledge to have. Since you will be using your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press often there will be leftovers.
First, leftovers should be sealed and stored no more than two hours after you have finished cooking. Also, modern refrigerators prevent you from having to wait until your food cools; you can store it right away if you want!
It’s vital that you use leak-proof containers and storage bags or quality plastic wrap, assuring that all your leftovers are airtight. If you use smaller separate containers to divide your leftovers then it will not take as long to cool which prevents contamination from certain bacteria even more, and try to remove as much air as possible before sealing.
Channel Your Inner Tetris
A clean and organized refrigerator is a happy one; it also means a happy wife from personal experience, but that is beside the point. Arranging your food products and leftovers properly is an art, but also very important. Vegetables, dairy, meat, eggs, everything has its own area!
Let’s start with the shelving. You didn’t know it mattered? Well, it does and there is a method behind the madness. You should store most leftovers on the upper shelves as well as drinks, dairy products, and foods that are essentially ready to consume and don’t need to be cooked like vegetables and breads. The bottom shelves should be reserved for raw meats and other ingredients used for cooking that may be prone to drip. If you can’t fit all your raw ingredients on the very bottom shelf, simply place a plate underneath the food just in case!
Now to the drawers and door. That’s right, it’s not over yet! The door should solely be used for condiments because it’s actually the warmest part of the fridge so it would be wise not to place anything that requires cold temperatures or is perishable on the small shaves; things like milk and eggs for example. Drawers are also quite specific because they are meant to hold certain products depending on their respective humidity needed to stay fresh. Example: fruits and vegetables. Still be careful of meats resting above though if the drawers are on the bottom; there is still a risk of contamination. That’s where the aforementioned plate comes in handy again!
Your refrigerator should remain below 40 degrees, try not to overload the fridge because it obstructs circulation of the cold air, and make sure you eat your meat leftovers within four days. You don’t want your “New Burger Creations” to go to waste! Writing the date down and keeping them towards the front of the refrigerator is a handy reminder.
Destroy The Evidence
Don’t worry; a crime hasn’t been committed, unless of course someone stole your burger recipes and secrets which would be awful. You know you can clean your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press easily, but what about the rest?
There won’t be much mess because the simplicity of the press, but there will be some spillage during preparation, and it is very important to clean up after the fact. You don’t have to stop you’re cooking to tend to the counter, but you can tidy up during and really clean after.
The extra minutes you have while your burgers are cooking can be used to wash some of your prep dishes and pick up and dispose of any stray ingredients. It will keep the kitchen tidy, and save you time after you’ve enjoyed your delicious meal.
Handling and cooking with raw meat has potential health risks that is why making sure the dish is cooked enough is vital, but also cleaning the juices that leaked during preparation is just as important. Use a disinfecting wipe or spray to assure that your counter is clear of bacteria such as E. coli, salmonella
There’s really only one last thing to do: Enjoy your creations! You may have gone a little overboard with your Cuisinart CSBP-100 3-in-1 Stuffed Burger Press the night before, but that’s not your fault; it’s easy and fun to use so you’re allowed to get carried away. However, if you didn’t stuff yourself silly then you get to enjoy the meals the next day.
Whether you scramble the burger into your eggs in the morning, bring it to work for lunch to make everyone in the office jealous, or just relive your dinner memories from the night before it will be easy to remind yourself how good your burger is. You’re a master so be proud of it!
