      Hello seen this item on "Deal of the Day" and wasn't in the market for one but thought why not take a look so I read reviews and read the product details and thought this might be cool for after school hot dogs for me and my grandson. I ordered it online it was delivered quickly and I waited for my grandson so he could open it he is 4 years of age and Wow he was so excited about the bubble wrap (HAHAHA) once we opened the Hotdog and bun warmer he got into a curious learning mode and I have to say well worth the money and a easy fun and a no fuss lets eat Hotdogs then play later experience. Product works like it shows, if buns are a little to big just trim them with sissor. I cook my hotdog twice and his once. We really like this unit. Great find on "Deal of the Day" supervision a definite don't let small children cook on this or ANY plug in appliance. Thank you for reading Reviews help consumers

      Ok, this will never be something that anyone ever will really need. I happen to have a youngster in the house though that loves to help make the hot dogs for lunch or supper every once in a while. For our purposes, this thing hotdog toaster works great. I have time to get drinks ready and get the table set while the dogs are toasting. It is not as quick as a microwave oven of course but I cannot get toasted hot dog buns out of the microwave either. All in all, this product works well for us, it doesn;t take up too much counter space and the little one can actually take part in the preparation of our lunch once ina while, which is cool. The edges of the buns toast first and I usually like to run the dogs twice before they are really hot, but all in all, I would buy this toaster again.

      I had my initial doubts when perusing the market for a hot dog toaster. I've looked at Amazon, Target, and all of the other online markets and I could not just decide on a proper hot dog cooker. Luckily i stumbled upon Best Buy and found a smokin good deal on a toaster, pun intended. Not only was this a screaming good deal, but I found it cheaper at another site and BestBuy Price Matched, AHMAZING. Now about the toaster, please its a no brainer. This bad boy cooked up my dogs effortlessly and shot them right out of the toaster upon completion, literally could have caught the wiener in my bun. We started off cooking the dogs on the highest setting, which cooked them really nice. We then finished the dogs off with the middle setting and threw the bun in at the same time, no problem. We then devoured those sweet, succulent dogs like they were our last.

      Bought this for my son's dorm as he loves hot dogs. We tried it at home and the buns get toasty and the wieners are cool/cold on the inside. The instructions recommend room temperature wieners but in reality a short few seconds in the microwave to heat up the inside is more what is necessary before toasting the outside skin. It's more trouble than it's worth and the build quality is suspect. I understand outsourcing to a low cost manufacturer, but you can pay too little to get something done. There's no value in this product and I'd paid 1.5-2X the price point I paid had it worked and had a better build quality. It's cute and retro looking...but that's where it starts and ends.

      Hot Dogs go pop up

      I use the Hot Dog toaster with the standard bun size Dogs. Just like a bread toaster you place the dogs in the top and press down on a plunger to cook. A cook time adjustment dial lets you set the cooking length. I found the bun toasting slots is not usable in my opinion, it buns the standard buns. I'll start by preheat it one cook cycle first before putting the dogs in. I also wrap the bottom drip tray with aluminum foil for easy clean up. Just remove and replace when the toaster cools off. You will be surprised at the fat the dogs drip off... I'll run one cycle and flip them over to get them fully cooked. Cleaning up the hot dog cage part can be time consuming, but over all I like it for the ease of use and quick cook times. The Red Nostagic housing looks It does get hot so watch how you handle it during use.

      Nice way to cook hot dogs

      This appliance does a nice job of cooking hot dogs. It is much better tasting than microwaving which creates uneaven hot spots and seems to make the dogs taste more salty. As others have commented, it can burn the buns. I typically like my dogs hot so I turn of the temperature control to cook the dogs and then grill the buns separately on a lower setting. I would have given it a 5 star rating if there hot dog holder had a wider range in size. It does hold most sized hot dogs but there are a few "fat" dogs that don't fit. Also the slide mechanism does not feel real solid (build quality is not great). Other than that that I recommend this device.

      Ok, 5 to 6 days a week, when I do runs for company, I stop at a FastFood establishment for a hotdog or burger... $400+ each month EASY! (Buying for my wife and myself each trip daily) This, makes it so I haven't gone to one in weeks! I grabbed some Turkey franks and bags of buns, threw them in the store freezer and now I'm down to $30 per month? Wow! BUT!!! You MUST clean the Bun sides after use or your bread will stick. I found out QUICKLY, don't use buns that are Humid or out of Freezer or it becomes GLUE! Oh yeah, FULL BUN LENGHT Franks fit PERFECTLY!!! Nom Nom Nom!

      I want this for my kids snack and they like it at first but after first cook they said it is not good so I tried it myself. I set temp. almost highest then put hot dogs and buns into slots. They pop up after they are done but they don't look good so I press down for 2nd time. It pop up again when it done and the buns just slightly burn where they touch to the wall but that is OK; however, the hot dogs are just look dry and when I bite one, inside still cool (not as cold but just not warm at all.) I don't bother to try again so I return it.
