The first 6 or 7 times we used this appliance it worked well. However due to cheap construction it is prone to damage. Our lid broke within 2 months. The drip pan did overflow once with liquid onto a granite countertop leaving a brown stain. Took a bit to clean it out. Works best with some water in the pan for "steam" cooking. The water from the pan or frozen dogs gets everywhere. We used this at least once per week in our home theater wet bar and it could not stand up to the use, esp. with 8-10 people per movie night.
We purchased this hot dog rotisserie as a gift for my Mom and she loves it. She says the hot dogs have a great taste and she loves her hot dogs! The little oven is great for warming up the buns for weiners. It is very simple to set up, more compact than we thought, easy to clean, just takes a little more time to cook the hot dogs. For a great tasting hot dog - got to get one of these! It's a great purchase for that hot dog lover that you know!
Following the manufacturer's instructions we heated the unit and waited the indicated amount of cooking time. The hotdogs were barely cooked and we had to put them in the broiler to finish them. I am waiting for our warranty to return the unit to the manufacturer. The pictures of the cooked franks looked grewat on the outside of the box !!
The hot dog roller made a great grilled hot dog that reminded me of the ones I used to eat as a kid at Nathan's, in Coney Island, when mustard was all you needed to make it good. The only disappointment was that the rollers did not turn and you had to turn the franks periodically yourself. Clean up was also easy.
This Hot Dog Roller and Toaster was a surprise because it actually resulted in some great hot dogs! However, the construction isn't such that I would call this a sturdy machine that will last very long - that was a little disappointing.
gave as a xmas gift and once they took our of the box found out that it was broken. this is the first time we have ordered from overstock.com and we had a problem with both items we ordered. I would not order with them again. this item was broken and pop corn popper was charged to our acct but we never received it. although they did credit our acct. very disappointed.
I have used the hot dog cooker one time and find it to be as i had hoped to be. Hot dogs always taste better fixed on one of these things for some reason. Also the warmer-oven is nice too. I would recommend it to others. It is also a nice looking piece of equipment, the lid to cover the dogs while cooking is one of the best features that made me choose to buy this one.
Hot dogs are a weekend favorite for us. I purchased this Hot Dog Roller Toaster Oven as a gift for my husband to use in the pool house. He could not believe I'd found such a unique appliance. It's big enough to feed a family yet small enough to fit on limited counter space. The hot dogs can be cooked 'dry' on the rollers resulting in really taut skin ready to burst from the juiciness on the inside. Or.. water can be added to the drip pan resulting in steamy moist hot dogs. Clean up is a breeze. The rollers are not limited to hot dogs - we're experimenting with all things round :)
