Do Stufz Really Work?


Does Stufz workStufz is a way to make stuffed burgers, and to do so quickly and without a lot of trouble. Stuffed burgers taste great, but can be a bit hard to pull off, so let’s see if this really does make it easier.

Overview
If you’ve ever had a stuffed burger you’re probably hooked. It’s a great way to get all of the yummy burger toppings like cheese and bacon put right into the middle of the burger so that everything stays contained and every bite of burger tastes just how you want it to. But getting things in the middle of a burger can be tricky, and if you’re not a professional burger maestro you might struggle with it until you figure it out.

The Claim
Enter Stufz. It is supposed to make it so that you can stuff a burger without fumbling around trying to do it by hand. It’s just a simple plastic circle-shaped device with some very specific abilities. It jams the meat into the shape of a cup so that you can add ingredients to it, which become the inside stuffing of a massively stuffed burger.

The Hype
The hype is added by celebrity chef Brian Duffy as the pitchman. You might remember him from Date Plate and other television appearances. He says he uses these in all of his restaurants. We’re not sure if that’s true or not, but if his restaurants serve up stuffed burgers he probably does.

The Cost
Stufz sells for a total of $20 and you end up getting two of them. At first it might not seem like you’d need two, since one person can only work one at a time, but if you ever have help in the kitchen you’ll appreciate the second one. And for a total of $20 it’s not bad, you can even go in on this with a buddy if you just want one and it boils down to $10 each with delivery included.

The Commitment
This should reduce the amount of time you spend making a stuffed burger, and if you’ve never made one before it might even allow you to do it in the first place. It makes it as easy as playing with Play Doh. You just put a ball of meat into the unit, and it presses the meat around the edges. This creates a good sized well so that you can fill it with whatever toppings you want. Then it’s just a matter of adding a patty of meat at the top and sealing it all up so that it stays contained as a burger.

Evaluation
Stufz is a pretty basic concept, but often in the world of inventions it’s the basic ideas that have the most success in the real world. That’s because there’s not a lot of moving parts, there’s no motor, and they’ve kept things really simple. You’re basically making a pocket out of the beef, filling that pocket and then putting a lid on the whole thing. They offer a ton of different ideas for the kinds of burgers you can make with this. Of course fans of chili burgers are going to want to drop some chili in there. Basically whatever your favorite burger toppings are you just pout them into the middle.

You can even experiment with different things. You can go fancy, or keep things simple. Think of this fancy combination: you put garlic, fresh spinach, some sundried tomatoes and instead of using regular cheese like American or cheddar you use parmesan. That’s a recipe they include, and it’s going to make a burger that’s fit for a 5 star restaurant. You’re also not limited to beef with this. You can make chicken cordon bleu with it. One awsome idea is to make pizza burgers stuffed with your favorite pizza toppings for a meaty pizza inspired treat. Basically, if burgers were getting boring, this is a way to make sure that you never get tired of them.

Tip: Be sure to cook the ingredients that go into the middle of the burger if they need it. They won’t get fully cooked from inside the burger, so if you like your onions sauteed, be sure to saute them before you cook the burger. Things like cheese will definitely melt inside the burger, but don’t expect uncooked foods to cook from within the burger.

Final Stufz Review

We like Stufz and are giving it our Thumbs Up rating. They’ve done a good job of keeping things simple and easy, and with the ideas they provide you won’t be short on how to keep the stuffed burgers flowing.

Our Recommendation
These would be good to have in the home for burger night. There are just so many different ways you can stuff a burger that this could become one of your family’s new favorite meals if it wasn’t already.

What do you think? Does Stufz work or not?

This looks like a fun way to liven up your hamburgers right in the middle of burger itself. With it only costing $20 it’s definitely worth it without making a huge commitment. So it’s not a huge loss if it doesn’t work well. Adding a bit of creativity to ordinary burgers.

I’ve always liked the idea of stuffed burgers, but once I tried making them and they didn’t turn out very well. I just tried making two thin patties, filling the middle, then smashing the ends together. This looks like a great way to easily fill burgers so that the stuffing stays inside, since it makes a deep well to put your stuffing inside, and you have meat on the sides instead of trying to crimp together two flat burgers. $20 seems like a fair price. You could use one and give one to a friend, or just have someone help you in the kitchen so you can both use one and stuff burgers twice as fast (since it seems that it does take a bit of extra time to make each burger.)

I’ve never had a stuffed burger, but they sound kind of interesting. Part of me thinks it’s a little gross, but probably it would be really delicious in real life. And you could make them to your own tastes, and only fill it as much as you’d want to. It seems like you could just mold the meat around the filling, but I imagine it would end up being difficult if you’re putting things like sauteed onions and crumbled cheeses in the middle. It would end up just getting mixed together. This seems like a simple and useful solution to that problem that’s easy to use and makes a good result. I would like this product, I think.
