I really enjoy watching the dogs warm then glisten with moister as they heat. I let my dogs roll for 15 minutes or so and depending on the packaging it can take several minutes for them to start rolling and get in sync with the rollers; the metal rolling unit is operational but different brand dogs can sometimes be squarish depending on the packaging. Give them a couple of minutes to warm and they're rolling and glistening. The assembly was very easy and fast. From the descriptions online be aware that the body, posts and top are plastic. The rolling unit is metal and works without flaw. I did wash it after unpacking the box and it is very easy to remove and drop back in. It can be hand washed or put in the dishwasher. The top bun warmer is nice and gives the buns I've placed in it a warm feeling. The buttons on the unit I received are gray and not red. A fun piece of equipment that will make folks smile when they see dogs being warmed while rolling!
I bought this for a Labor Day party. It was a fun addition. The kids loved getting their own hot dogs - My only complaint is that it took so long to heat the wieners. It didn't ever really get that hot. We will use it again just because it's so fun. I didn't like the bun warmer. If you put the buns in at the same time as the wieners, the buns became too hard.
you can always get them out easily. I haven't tried the bun sections yet but will soon. I like mine a bit on the burnt side so I toast it once, turn the dog and toast it again. Works great and I don't know why but I laugh every time I use it.
