NuTEC, New Lenox, Ill., offers an accessory that is designed to make patties take on more of a home-made or smashed appearance. NuTec flattener

The PF-700 Flattener forms patties at their regular thickness and then immediately enters into the flattening conveyor, where the shapes evolve from a very machined look into more of a natural, handmade look.

The Flattener also enhances the original tenderness and juiciness of the patty during cooking.
