  • Adjustability: Easily customize the size of your patty.
  • Quality construction: The press is made of durable, heavy-duty cast aluminum.

  • Easy to use: It measures 3 by 3 inches, just right for little hands.

Why we love these:

  • Versatility: They fit perfectly on lemons, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, open cans, jars, and more.
  • Low-maintenance: Since they’re dishwasher safe and made with BPA-free silicone, they couldn’t be easier to clean.

6. Cuisinart Cast Iron Grill Press

This. JUST THIS. If I had to marry a gadget, I’d probably say I Do to this press. Sound dramatic? This press helps sausages cook uniformly, burgers stay flat, and it helps keep chicken breasts uniform and flat.

13. Misto Brushed Aluminum Oil Sprayer

Buying can after can of spritzable olive oil can add up after a while, so I love the idea of a reusable sprayer that you can just refill when it gets low. The pump creates an ultra-fine mist so you can easily control the amount of oil you spray on meats, veggies, and other keto foods.
