If you haven’t seen it already, allow me to assure you – you will. StufZ is a product appearing in TV commercials aplenty right now, and rightfully so. It’s an intriguing little cooking helper – especially for a burger-loving foodie like me. I’ve always been terrible at stuffing my burger patties. My kitchen comes out looking like a war zone with all of the remnant ingredients that never seemed to want to pack nicely into my delectable patties sprawled out all over my counters. It's bad.
Needless to say, StufZ helps with that – BIG time, and I figured this was a fun gadget to talk about in my very first post on my very first Wall Patch blog. I was thrilled to hear about this product and couldn’t wait to have it in my kitchen. Ultimately, I think it’s a great buy right now, and as far as I know the company is running a buy one get one free (or some other type of typical promotional offer – I’d take them up on that).
Remember to only buy one set, the other set is automatically included in your order. In other words, if you want two sets of StufZ, you only need to order one.
I’m An Incredibly Messy Cook
I can say this without even flinching – I’m not a very good burger maker. My husband took over the grill work long ago, and I don’t blame him. But, I’ve always had a knack for preparing a mean patty. I mean, really-really mean. OK, I’ll stop bragging… But really, they’re pretty good.
Moving on. As I said before, my kitchen would turn into a crazy mess after making stuffed burger patties. Macaroni, cheeses, bacon, all smeared across my counter top. Picture what your baby’s high chair looks like after he knocks a bowl of food off his table. That’s my counter top post-burger-making. Only without the oatmeal. That would be weird in a burger, wouldn’t (I’m totally going to try it now – thanks StufZ for bringing out even more of the crazy in me.)
There's very little doubt that hamburgers are among the most popular foods in the world. Unfortunately, they are also one of the most difficult foods to prepare. If you've never created your own hamburgers from scratch before then you'll never know how messy the entire procedure can be. Sure, you can buy your own hamburger patties at the shopping mall, but doing so defeats the whole point of creating your own hamburger.
Luckily, the StufZ makes it very easy to keep the whole patty making process fairly clean. Your hands will get messy – no doubt about it. But your counters will stay clean. Provided you’re not a total mess in the kitchen (I still can be from time to time.
The point in creating a hamburger from scratch is the fact that people want customization. In other words, you are creating your own burger using your own recipe. The only problem is that this is not an easy thing to do, and many amateur attempts end in failure, simply because the whole process takes up a lot of time and energy.
Fortunately, there's a solution, and it’s called the StufZ Burger Maker. This seemingly simple device is a durable and high quality burger press which allows you to create stuffed burgers using your favorite ingredients without too much hassle. You will no longer have to worry about making a mess in your kitchen, nor will you have to worry about the condition of your patties once they're being cooked. The StufZ can do all of this and even a little more.
What Does It Take To Make A Hamburger From Scratch?
Before we discuss the practical benefits of the burger maker in this StufZ review, lets put the problem into perspective first. The fact of the matter is that creating hamburger patties involves grounding a lot of meat, not to mention a whole bunch of other ingredients. If you don't know how to handle these ingredients or if you don't understand how to process the meat just right then you will most likely end up with a lot of mess on your hands. Creating hamburgers from scratch requires good cooking skills. It also practically requires a butcher's knowledge of how to handle meat properly.
The point in all of this is that stuffed burgers are really difficult to make manually, which is why amateurs shouldn't try to do it on their own. For starters, you will need to get the spacing as well as the sealing just right. You will also need to figure out how much meat you will need. Furthermore, making the molding with your hands is not only difficult, it's very difficult. This is why a lot of first time attempts at creating hamburger patties end up as disasters, not only for the hamburgers themselves, but also with the kitchen.
What Are The Main Benefits in Using The StufZ Burger Maker?
Okay, making hamburgers manually is a very messy affair, and how can this product solve the problem? Well, the main goal of the StufZ is to help you create burger patties quickly and conveniently. In contrast, hand stuffing as well as molding requires a lot of time and effort just to create a single patty.
Having said that, the best benefits I can find, concluding this StufZ review include:
- The patties have excellent shapes
- No spillage
- It's relatively easy to clean
- Considerably fewer mess around the kitchen
- The finish product tastes great
- It has an easy to use design
- Easy to assemble and disassemble
- Easily stored in a cabinet or cupboard
How Do You Use The StufZ Burger Maker?
Now that we've discussed the main benefits of using the StufZ, it's time to discuss how it can be used. So if you're wondering how this device works, here are some very general instructions for how to use the StufZ Burger Maker.
First of all, get the ground meat and any other ingredients that you want to use. Secondly, shape them, stuff them and then simply close in order to seal them in. After that, your burger patty is now ready. It's that simple.
The real benefit in all of this is that you have the option to create several different combinations. You can use all kinds of stuffing and toppings. You could create mushroom burgers, vegetarian burgers, burgers with a lot of chili or even burgers made from tofu. It's your call.
The most important benefit of the StufZ is that it makes everything easier. Whether it's cooking or preparations, this device makes the process of creating burgers easy. There's also less to clean up after you're done. On the other hand, the StufZ is a simple device, and what you see is what you get. For people who want bells and whistles to go along with their kitchen appliances, this is a failing, but if you're just interested in making great tasting burgers then the StufZ is perfect in every way.
