Sliders at home

If you have a craving for a slider, you can have a burger on the table in less time than it would take to drive to the nearest fast food joint.

The Big City Slider Station makes it easy to whip up a batch of minburgers at home. The Big City Slider Station

I get cravings for sliders--the small hamburgers that certain fast food joints and pubs make -- every so often. I live in the wrong state for my favorite sliders, though, and I've been working on finding a substitute for a while. I've got the flavor just about right, but actually cooking those burgers can be a pain. If I'm making dinner for the whole family, it feels like I stand at the stove or grill for hours trying to make enough. The Big City Slider Station speeds up the whole process.

This pan can cook up five slider patties at a time--and in just two minutes. The aluminum pan comes with a lid that cooks the top of the patty at the same time as the bottom cooks, eliminating any need to flip the burgers. All you have to do is scoop ground chuck into the pan, put on the lid, and cook. It's also the ideal shape for cooking eggs for sandwiches, and you can add onions or other additions to your burger easily. From there, it's just a matter of putting your sliders on buns and sitting down to dinner.

The Big City Slider Station is priced at $19.99.
