Why is a Hamburger Called a Hamburger if Their is No Ham in It?

 Obviously there is no ham in a burger so the name has to come from something else.  The Hamburger was first introduced in the USA in 1904, but originally got the name “Hamburger” because it came from Hamburg, Germany (ironically, hot dogs were invented in Frankfurt, Germany as well).  The cheeseburger then came later in 1924.  

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest hamburger ever produced weighed 5,520 pounds, and was made at the Outagamie County Fair in Wisconsin in 1989. This burger was the same size as a two-car garage!!

Imagine if you had to “grind/chop” all of your meat by hand?  How dreadful that would be for a hamburger restaurant! If your food service establishment calls for even a small amount of ground beef (and well, most restaurants do serve some sort of ground beef in one way or another), then a meat chopper/grinder will make your prep extremely more efficient!  Afterall, the world record for the most hamburgers eaten in 10 minutes is 21!


If you are looking for a heavy duty grinder, one that will grind the heaviest of meats, check out the Chefmate Meat Grinder/Chopper from Globe. This heavy-duty chopper is designed for commercial food operations and can easily grind beef, pork, venison, and poultry while maintaining the meats natural color and flavor.  In the end, no one wants to eat a burger that doesn’t actually look like meat.  I know we have mentioned this in the pat, but just to reiterate – It doesn’t matter how good your food tastes, if it doesn’t look appetizing, people will think it’s bad. This machine allows you to grind up to 250 lbs of meat per hour!  That’s a lot of hamburgers!!
