If you want to make a great burger, you’re going to need the right tools.
We’ve put together a list of the kitchen essentials you’ll need to do the prep work for your ground beef.
You’re going to want to mix the ground beef, onions, garlic, herbs, egg yolks, and whichever other spices and flavours you like together in a big bowl.
We recommend getting a set of three bowls for two reasons: one, you can vary the volume of burgers you will make in the future. And two: they will come in handy for preparing other meals.

You’ll need to add egg yolk into your ground beef mixture.
For us non-chefs, it could be difficult to separate an egg yolk from the egg white. But this fish-shaped yolk separator will help get the job done without any mess.

We’re hoping that you’re not planning on mixing the ground beef mixture with your fingers.
Invest in a nice wooden spoon (or three) to keep things cleaner while you’re cooking.

Adjustable nonstick burger press
In order for your burger to cook evenly, you’ll want the patties to have uniform thickness.
An adjustable nonstick burger press is the best way to do that. You can make your patties between 0.5″ to 1.5″ thick — depending on how you like it.
By keeping the thickness uniform, you will prevent the burger’s edges from being overcooked and the interior from being undercooked.

Shun serrated utility knife
And finally, you’ll need a great knife to slice the tomatoes and pickles for your burger.
The Shun serrated knife is a great option specifically for slicing through tomatoes. The slight patterning on the knife will keep the food from sticking to the knife.
