      @Daniel Hillegus it's actually the opposite, the steam rising is what causes it to wilt and soften, putting it on the bottom makes it cruncher.

    Watching this as a Brit it's hilarious how "the cheese is the wildest thing about this burger".
    Red Leicester over here is right next to cheddar in everyday, middle-of-the-road supermarket cheeses. It is precisely the "sesame seed bun, iceberg lettuce, ketchup and mayonnaise" of cheeses.

    You could tell he was picking cheeses he liked over he cheeses he thought it might be. He said so many times that the cheese was bland and salty but kept picking fairly strong cheese

    I think Jamie might have been going for something Big Mac-esque with the shredded lettuce and sauce.

    Still confused as to why it’s called the Insanity burger? Bc it’s insane to put the lettuce at the bottom? Lol

    I think the real evaluation here is that, if Chris can't taste it, it is a pointless ingredient that those other chefs have thrown in for no other reason than an attempt to stroke their own ego. If Chris can't taste it - take it out of the recipe!

    Heat travels upward. Lettuce on top of the patty is more likely to wilt faster than lettuce on the bottom.

    It'd be interesting to see Chris taste it blindfolded, shop for his ingredients blindfolded, and then cook blindfolded!

  • Chloe Ramil

    does anyone know what happens with food waste in the test kitchen? like, did the whole burgers that chris picked at minimally get tossed out? have they addressed this before? idk, i hate to be cynical about it all because i enjoy their videos so much but every time i see a video like this or gourmet makes i wonder what happens to all the food between square one and final product. it'd suck if the answer is they just end up throwing out a lot of perfectly good food.

    the grading is so unfair.. salt is in ketchup anyways.. but they write it as red. I just want to say , look like Chris just can't resist making a tastier version than original in every episode.
