*The Rebel Whopper® is plant-based; however, it is cooked on the same broiler as our original WHOPPER® to deliver the same unique flame-grilled taste. Due to shared cooking equipment it may not be suitable for vegetarians.
Why bother Burger King!
It's vegetarian but not for vegetarians and cost £4.50 I say days are numbered and sports direct ain't gona help😁
There's plenty of people now trying to reduce their meat consumption, which this caters for.
It will take time and money to change the cooking equipment in kitchens so I'm sure if the feedback is positive for this then they will update their kitchens and cater for vegetarians, although I'm sure some will still eat these "contaminated" offerings.
A small and very belated step but it is a move in the right direction.

....do they fry this on a different fryer as otherwise it will contain beef from the contamination. What oil do they use to fry the chips. If that contains beef then you are still eating beef.

There's been lot's of news stories of people complaining about it being cooked on same broiler as beef , also fries cooked in chicken fat aprantley
Due to cooking process, Vegetarians and Vegans won't find it suitable even if the burger itself is plant based

Flexitarians would eat it but I do think Burger King has released it during Veganuary on purpose, to try and sell more, hoping vegans and vegetarians won't notice or bother to read the small print
had one of these last week.. really nice....
also know as the CELTIC FC burger..

The burger is grilled on the same equipment as the beef, but not at the same time. No beef is cooked in the fryer

They fry it on the same hotplate as the normal burgers in order to give it the whopper taste. Hence its fried in the same oil that was used to fry the whopper . Not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

It isn't fried. They don't use a hotplate. It is grilled on metal rods, it is not cooked at the same time as the Whoppers

Its irrelevant whether its fried or grilled if its still cooked on the same instrument as the ordinary burgers. BK has stated they do this to give the burger its whopper taste,meaning its not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

Silly comment, people who want to reduce their meat consumption but still enjoy the taste. It isn't a binary choice.

KFC managed to do it and have Quorn process and fry the "fillet" and then send to the restaurants for reheating and assembly.

Zero contamination . Nicely done!

No, a broiler and a grill are two different things.

Well... when you grill you put heat over something or on top of it but when you broil the heat in under the item you are cooking. You are not the only one moderated... we must both be on some sort of register
thanks for posting, look forward to trying this.

My comment went for moderation too, think the word vegetarian or vegan can bring forth some nasty comments.
According to Google a UK broiler is a form of rotisserie where a stick with food on, is rotated whilst cooking..

As I said it's completely and utterly irrelevant how it's cooked. The issue is its cooked on the same equipment that their meat products are cooked on. Therefore it isn't suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

OK you win lol Now don't be injuring yourself whilst celebrating.
IS this the right room for an argument?

To me its too expensive, even with chips. However.... despite being a meat eater, i'm trying to drastically reduce my meat intake and having some success. Personally, I welcome a 'veggie' whopper, the more choice the better. It might not be ideal for everyone, but its a start.
You don't have to buy it, its a choice. I thank the OP for taking the time to post the deal anyway.

Probably not. I asked on Twitter if the $3.99 Whopper Meal can be used to get the Rebel Whopper instead and they said no so I assume that's the case for other offers as well
