Frequently Asked Questions:
What types of burgers are these?
These are Omaha Steaks® 100% PureGround Sirloin burgers, made with steak trimmings from their iconic Top Sirloin that has been aged at least 30 days.
What is the difference between the two cook settings?
More Done = no pink. This burger will be completely cooked through, similar to a burger cooked to “Well Done.'
Less Done = some pink in the center. This will be similar to a burger cooked to ‘Medium.’
Which cook setting do you recommend?
Our chefs prefer their burgers with some pink in the middle, so they tend to go with the “Less Done” cycle. But, it’s entirely up to you! If you prefer no pink in the center of your burgers we recommend the “More Done” cook cycle. There’s no wrong way to enjoy these juicy burgers.

Tovala Burger Tips & Tricks:
We recommend cooking your burger on 2 sheets of aluminum foil, as they tend to get a little messy when cooking. Don’t worry if this happens, it’s all part of the fun. More mess = more juicy goodness.
Try picking up your burger with a slotted spatula to drain off any excess liquid.
Let your burger rest while your bun heats in the oven. Allowing your meat to rest helps to trap the delicious juices inside.
We recommend opening your bun and warming it open face, cut side facing up, in the oven’s residual heat. Or, for a more toasted bun, use the Toast setting on Level 1-3. A toasted bun adds great texture and helps to absorb some of these juices.
All of our burgers are loaded burgers (we can't help it, we love toppings). If you prefer less toppings, feel free to keep some off or enjoy them on the side.
The USDA requires that beef be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160°F. Verify internal temperature by utilizing a food thermometer. Failure to follow safe food handling and cooking practices may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
