Is the press in the video flat on the bottom, or is it cupped to form the burger?

I actually prefer burgers that have been cooked on a griddle over a grill and I'd just like to try this technique. His press was custom made and I can't find anything like it for sale anywhere.

I sent email to Meyer Metal Works and will wait for his response...
Jim until you get a press made,maybe you could either use a brick wrapped in foil or a cast iron skillet an egg size skillet would work great I think.

So it has a small concave on the bottom, is that what you are talking about?

A pressed burger is a tough burger, just form the patties with your hands no simpler way imho.

Is there no muffler shop or fence shop around there JM, take a concrete tool, trim the blade, take a section of 6" pipe, a little grinding and welding and you would have the tool. Prototype would be easy. Manufacturing, that would be the trick.

If alumium would be acceptable this would be easy for someone with a lathe. You can find 8" diameter, 1" thick discs at online metal suppliers. Cost is about $25. I used to machine parts for race cars from them.
