About this project
WHO LOVES BURGERS?
My husband Greg and I do, but we always found it challenging to easily make both delicious and fresh tasting burgers at home.
When you buy frozen burger patties at the grocery store they are usually freezer burned and almost impossible to pry apart.
There are lots of burger presses on the market. But they only make one patty at a time and there is the problem of where to store the patties until you need them.
Last year we launched our first product, The Smart Cookie™ (our first Kickstarter campaign), a storage container that shapes, stores and freezes homemade cookie dough. We started experimenting with different uses for The Smart Cookie™, such as flavoured butters, baby food, ice cream etc. Then one day we put extra ground beef in The Smart Cookie™ to make sliders for our kids. After we saw how well it worked, we decided to create a version that would make full sized burger patties. We quickly realized the Burger Master:
1) Makes eight burgers in less time than it takes to make one.
2) Protects the meat from freezer burn.
3) Allows you to keep your hands clean since you never need to touch the meat.
4) Makes it easy to stuff your burgers with your favorites such as cheeses, salsa or butter before sealing.
5) Is a container that makes it easy to store and transport the burgers to their final destination such as a barbeque, cottage or the freezer.
6) Doubles a cooler pack when frozen.
7) Is compact and stackable in the freezer. Dimensions are 10.6" X 10.8" X 1.25".
8) Is easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
9) Allows you to easily remove the meat, even when frozen.
We decided to adjust our original design to be able to cut meat and to make it large enough to hold 8 quarter pound patties (well actually a little bit extra, 4.5 oz to be exact). And as an added bonus, you never have to touch the raw meat with your hands!
INTRODUCING THE BURGER MASTER
We decided on the name Burger Master because this product makes all other burger presses obsolete. There is nothing else on the market that will shape multiple burger patties in one easy step, and also allow you to store the patties in a flat, freezer safe container that does not require any additional separation materials such as pieces of waxed paper or flat plastic discs. The Burger Master is made from a durable food grade thermoplastic elastomer sourced from the United States. It is BPA and Phthalate Free and remains flexible even when frozen which allows the patties to easily pop out one at a time as needed.
WHAT WILL WE USE THE KICKSTARTER FUNDS FOR?
Since our products are made from high quality materials, and also made in Canada, we really need to order materials and manufacture in high volumes to be able to keep the costs down to provide an affordable product to the end user.
We already have experience bringing a product to market and are ready to move forward with the Burger Master. Be the first to own a Burger Master of your very own!
Risks and challenges
Our main challenge is getting the word out about this amazing product!
The Burger Master has been tested by a select group of tried and true burger lovers and it has consistently lived up to its promises so we are confident in our selection of material and design.
Since we already have experience bringing a product to market we already have a reliable network of suppliers and a trusted manufacturer who will make sure that we get your Burger Master to you within a short period time after our successful Kickstarter campaign ends!
