Plate coverage is highly desirable for grilled meat like chicken, pork and beef. One way make it appear that a steak is bigger (and have a more consistent cook time) without actually buying large cuts is by sending it through a meat press before placing it on the grill. Meat presses do exactly what their name suggests. They take meats of several different thicknesses and flatten them out to create uniformity.
Meat presses like the ones in this section are very easy to use. The desired thickness can be adjusted via a thickness knob. Feature such as a non-stick coating on the upper and lower platens and a swing-out bottom tray allow for quicker, easier pressing. You will want to take a look at the actual press dimensions to help get a good idea of how many pieces of meat can be pressed at once. Use the meat press to flatten steaks, pork chops and more, these heavy duty presses are a great piece of food prep equipment for use in your restaurant kitchen, deli or butcher shop.
As a side note, you will want to avoid sending bone-in meat through the press. If the bone is thicker than the indicated setting, the press could shatter the bone or damage the press itself. Meat presses are easy to use and incredibly safe, but avoid placing your fingers or hands near the press plates when you are operating it to prevent injury. Add a meat press to your other food prep tools and impress your guests with juicy steaks, beef wellington, stuffed pork chops and more.
