If there's one thing everyone loves about summer, it's delicious grilling recipes. From chicken skewers to hot dogs, grilled veggies, and of course, burgers, summer is all about firing up your barbecue and digging in. For anyone  who loves to host, Amazon has the perfect hack for you to prep several burgers at a time. The Shape+Store Burger Master 8-in-1 Innovative Burger Press will make your grilling experience easier and faster. 

The plastic burger press forms patties into a unique hexagonal shape. Each container can hold up to two pounds of meat, or eight quarter-pound burger patties at a time. Once you're done seasoning your meat to your liking, press the fresh ground beef directly into the Burger Master and form your patties. It allows you to cook several burgers at a time, which is especially helpful if you have a larger party to feed. 

But, the Burger Master does more than just shaping patties. It doubles as a frozen food container to safely store uncooked burgers for a later date. The eight individual compartments protect the meat fromfreezer burn and prevent the patties sticking together. Thanks to its thin design, the burger pressing and storing device easily fits in the freezer and stacks on top of other items without taking up valuable space. 

Some home cooks don't use the tool for meat at all. The hexagonal-shaped compartments are sturdy enough for variety of different foods, and even work as a serving platter. You can serve dip, soup, chili, rice, or pasta directly out of the Burger Master. Some customers credit it for helping with portion control, too.

While it's dishwasher safe, it's important to note that the plastic tool should not be used in a conventional oven or microwave. It also shouldn't be placed in your grill, ever. The Burger Master is solely for shaping and freezing purposes.

Amazon shoppers are very happy with their purchases of the $30 burger press. "I was very surprised at how this did exactly what it was advertised to do! My wife and I are older, live alone, and having the ability to make a batch of hamburgers, freeze them, and cook them up one or two at a time, which is great! The burgers are the right size, and I am able to make a batch with the seasonings I like," shared one pleased customer.

"Every burger is the same size which works great when they're being cooked on the grill. You don't end up with one burger being overdone and another not done enough. It's so easy to use, and we find the burgers to be just the right size quarter pounders," said another. 

You can get this multi-use device for only $30 on Amazon right now.
