Eating a hamburger upside down is definitely a life hack you'll want to remember.
Vox's Rachel Sugar reported on a new life hack that calls for you to flip your burger upside down so that the sesame bun is the bottom and your typical bottom bun is on top.
Sugar's report is based on expert Grand Thompson's proposed hack, which he first shared in a YouTube video.
Why does this work?: Thompson says it's because the top bun is twice as thick as the bottom bun, so it's more durable.
"And because it rests atop the burger, rather than under it, it is less likely to have been weakened by burger juices and/or sauces, which can lead to bottom bun collapse," according to Vox. "But if you flip the burger, then you have a thicker and therefore more structurally sound base of support for your sandwich."
This hack will stop unwanted spillages from the bun as well.
"Additionally, if the burger has been constructed in accordance with standard protocol, the lettuce will now be under the patty, rather than on top of it, and so will double as a drip guard to catch errant drops of sauce," according to Vox.
Multiple experts agree that flipping the burger makes sense, CNET reports.
Simon Dukes, the founder of the Burger Lad blog, told Business Insider last week that flipping the burger can help provide a better experience.
"The crown will then hold the weight of everything else, and there is less likelihood of it falling apart in your hands," Dukes said. "A true burger connoisseur should always eat their burgers upside down."
Matt Ester, founder of The Burger List, agreed with the idea, too.
"At first, I would have said that this is ridiculous," he told Business Insider. "I've always eaten burgers the 'proper way.' But it actually makes sense."
