Burger King - do they microwave (reheat) already cooked burgers?

LazyDonkeyLazyDonkey

I recently frequented a BK establishment and was told it would be 2mins for my order. When I watched out the back (which has to be the darkest kitchen ever) the guy took something from a tray and put it into what looked like a microwave - it was difficult to see. He then prepared the bun, box and salad and.........ding........opened a door, shut it and then declared the burger ready.

Does anyone know if BK pre-grill their burgers?

    Yes they do do this, they cook the burgers and reheat them in the micro for about 10 seconds

    yes.

    It goes through a broiler to be cooked, then into a high powered microwave to be finished and to melt cheese, if you choose to have it.

    dont worry completely normal. If they took it off the chute and reheated it then thats not normal!

    You can tell if a burger from there is in time, if you look at the wrapper there are numbers marked 1-12, burgers can sit for 10 mins before they need to be discarded, if your burger is marked at 2 its 'out' at 10 past, if its marked at 8 its 'out' at 20to... etc etc

    EDIT: its not reheating them its finishing the cooking process, burgers have always been cooked like that at burger king

    Yeah.....very nice :thumbsup:

    Not trying to just **** off BK, as Im not a big burger eater. I just wondered if that was the BK way as I cant say that I've ever seen the flames shooting off the grill.

    On another occasion in McDonalds I asked for a quarter pounder with cheese without onions (had a meeting and didn't want to stink). Anyway, the guy in the kitchen took an already made one off the rack and scraped out the onions.........needless to say I asked to see the manager. The manager then asked the guy in front of all the customers and he admitted what he had done. Ended up with a refund and a free meal, along with 4 other diners who complained.

    The manager probably encouraged this behind the scenes.

    Not as bad as Subway - their 'eat fresh' slogan is kinda wrong, in that their meat is pretty much all frozen, then defrosted.

    You're better off nipping the local shop and buying a Rustlers!
