Maybe you grew up with pops demanding that you only flip the burger once for maximum taste and juiciness. Maybe you were told it doesn’t matter. Maybe you were just told to go to McDonald’s and get a Big Mac.

Here’s some scientific truthiness to the age-old question, “How do you cook a burger?”

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt over at The Burger Lab scientifically tests the methods that I’ve described above, as well as many others in the article, and what they find may surprise you:

Flipping your meat multiple times produces meat that’s noticeably more evenly cooked (there’s about 40% less overcooked meat in a burger flipped every 15 seconds vs. one flipped once), browns just as well (just don’t expect distinct hash marks), and to top it all off, ends up cooking in about 2/3rds of the time. Faster and better? You betcha!

The multi-flippers win! Sure, you lose out on those delicious hash marks, but a better-cooked burger in 2/3 the time? That’s a win. And now you know…
