Method

  • Step 1

    Plug thermometer into unit. Insert grill grate in unit and close hood. Select GRILL. The unit will default to HI, which is the correct temperature setting for this recipe. Select PRESET. The unit will default to BEEF, which is the correct function for this recipe. Use the arrows to the left of the display to set desired doneness. Press START/STOP to begin preheating. 

  • Step 2

    While unit is preheating, divide ground beef into 6 portions and form each into a loosely formed 4-inch patty. Use your thumb to make a 1 /2-inch indent in the center of each patty (this will help the burgers keep their shape uniform during cooking). Season patties with salt and pepper, as desired.  

  • Step 3

    Insert thermometer horizontally into the center of one of the patties.

  • Step 4

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place patties on grill grate. Close hood over the thermometer cord.

  • Step 5

    Cook burgers, without flipping, until the unit beeps to signal they have reached your desired doneness. Use oven mitts to remove thermometer from burger, then top each burger with a slice of cheese. Remove burgers from unit.

  • Step 6

    If desired, toast the buns directly on the grill grate by selecting GRILL, setting temperature to HI, and setting time to 1 minute. Enjoy burgers with condiments and toppings of your choice.
