Under- or over-cooked burgers are a bummer, but do you care enough to send your burger back if it's not cooked to your requested doneness? Let us know in this week's poll.

For the sake of keeping the poll simple, we've limited the options to a clear-cut "yes" or "no". If you don't fall neatly into either of these options, or feel that there are certain circumstances that come into play (like the cost of the burger, the type of restaurant, or anything else), chime in with your thoughts in the comments.

Results of last week's poll


Weight Watchers Smart Ones Mini Cheeseburger

According to last week's poll, 67 percent of AHT'ers are all for frozen mini hamburgers, while 33 percent of respondents aren't fans. Here are some of your thoughts on the subject:

I'm with rondertaker, the White Castle ones aren't half bad. And they were perfect when we did not live anywhere near one.


I'm ashamed to admit that I have had these. Yes, the Weight Watchers version. And they manage to be both not particularly good and weirdly addictive.


Only when I'm wallowing self loathing and want to wallop my body with fatty, salty, self hate.


Note: the poll remains open, so these numbers may shift slightly in the future.
