Wax paper! Cut out squares of wax paper (slightly bigger than the press) and place one down before putting the meat in the press, then add another one on top of the meat... and press! When you use the wax paper, you can also skip using that center tray. When you lift up on the press, the meat will still stay in the tray, but all you have to do is grab a corner of the BOTTOM piece of wax paper and gently pull up. The pattie will come out perfectly! (I just reused the bottom piece of wax paper over and over again until I was done making my patties).
Hope that helped!
The bottom doesn't stick to the dimple maker (just lift out and turn over -- the burger will fall into your hand or whatever -- to prevent the top from sticking I lay a piece of waxed paper across before pressing. Works perfectly.
Use wax paper squares on top and bottom of meat to aid in release.

Put wax paper under the burger meat and on top of it, than press the meat in between the two pieces of paper down into the press. The wax paper, if cut large enough, lines the side of the press and no meat or fat can touch or stick to the plastic tool.

I add other items to my meat like bbq sauce, seasoning, etc and placed the insert in and the meat on the insert. Lifted the insert out of press and the meat usally lifted right off when I flipped it over. After about 8 or 9 patties if there was a residual from other patties I slid a knife between meat and insert and flipped it over and patty came right off.
Put a piece of Wax Paper on top and bottom of the meat.

If you use the dimple insert, removal of the pressed burger is a snap.

Try using a couple squares of parchment paper cut a little bigger than the meat well in the press placing one on top and bottom and the meat won't stick to the press...place it in the freezer for just a few minutes to keep it from sticking before removing the paper

stretch a piece of plastic wrap....large enough to cover press and some left over to fold over the meat...place the "ball" of meat on the plastic wrap..fold excess wrap over the top...press...this makes a package ready for the freezer....after you fold the edges in of course...
You can do the same thing with a gallon mayo or pickle jar lid....
