This is not a student only deal, you can get it via the Burger King app for anyone and has been on the app as a voucher for some time.
Burger King was good once, their burgers are shockingly bad, microwaved rubber. Sad really.
Cheap lunch and better than Maccies for me but they are unashamedly microwaving the burgers in front of you these days
Been microwaving since 1994 to my knowledge (managed a franchise outlet briefly). It's a food safety thing to heat to core temperature that may not be reached by a flame grill.
Omg - started comments like this! Need to get out more!!!!!
Available all the time on the app just incase anyone isn't a student wants this deal.
nice it is any long burger deal though! the app doesnt have that

Not even close to correct? The meats have always been cooked to a temperature in excess of 70 degrees, then held at a preset temperature. Nothing to do with food safety.
The only products that go in the microwave now are some desserts, veggies and the Bacon they use on the breakfast burgers.

Worked there in the mid 2000s. We used to microwave for 10 seconds to melt the cheese, that's it. Flame grilled all the way.
Which Franchise did you pretend to manage?

They are not allowed to microwave their burgers, if you have seen this you should report the branch to your local EHO who will investigate
Lol says who?

BK have to have their cooking and holding procedures agreed by their EHO. There is no provision for microwaving burgers.
Glad we have the microwave issue sorted now.

I bow to your superior knowledge jakerushworth.

I 'pretended' to be a General Manager for a large multi-national blue chip. I reported to the UK Vice President and I had a team of Operations Managers who managed the Team Leaders, who in turn managed the Franchises: BK, KFC etc.

Confess my actual hands-on burger flipping experience was limited to an odd hour back-of- house here and there, usually if I was accompanying a Franchisor/Food Safety Auditor on an inspection or similar.

I re-trained after I had a child and now I 'pretend' to work for the NHS in a very rewarding patient-facing, but relatively badly paid role, hence why I now shop from bargain sites.

I don't miss the corporate sector competition and pressure, but do miss the 'pretend' company car, 'pretend' annual bonuses and staying in decent 'pretend' business hotels. (Not to mention the luxury of having help from an amazing 'pretend' secretary.)

Also miss having a sharp memory for detail.

Luckily I was just making an idle comment on a website though - so nothing too critical if I mis-remember how the staff cooked burgers!

I will now 'pretend' not to be mildly riled by your comment.

Think I'm probably grumpy because I'd actually like to be eating a BK instead of talking about it!!
Syn-free slimming world treats just aren't quite cutting it for me today

Keep to your diet lady... I am sure the bk can wait. Scotch eggs are the future as you can't microwave them for the fear of exploding. They are low in fat and taste great with salad lol
