Product Description

This "hero" makes a great addition to any family! Steam-cook up to 4 hot dogs in under 7 minutes or 6 hot dogs in under 9 minutes-you're going to appreciate this handy time-saver. Indicateor light lets you know the steamer is in use, and auto shut-off features means you'll never have an over-cooked hot dog again. Voice-chip "barks" when the hot dogs are done-and stops when unplugged. Additional items included are a measuring cup for precise measuring and dishwasher-safe food tray.

I received this item as a gift and was pleasantly surprised at how well it makes hot dogs. I even tried skinless hot dogs (which normally lose a lot of taste when boiled or microwaved) and they tasted great! This machine is well worth the money. It makes quick, easy, and flavorful hot dogs every time.

We love the steam job this thing does on hot dogs, though we wish we could get more into it at one time; the Ball Park franks ("they plump when ya cook 'em") only fit four or five at a time, maximum, without pushing the lid off-center. You might be able to get as many as six other hot dogs on there.

The only real problem I have with it is that it's rather difficult to get clean. If you buy this, be aware you'll either need really skinny fingers or a skinny brush like the kind you use on bottle nipples to get the removable "plate" clean; it has a lot of crevices that you just can't get to otherwise. Also, the heating element in the base will discolor after a few uses. I haven't figured out how to get it back to pristine again, if that's even possible.

One note on use: Basically, the more water you put in it, the longer it will run. When using hot dogs that plump up when cooked, this can cause splitting. I usually only fill just to the point where it spills over the lowest level, where the heating element is. That's easily enough to cook three or four Ball Park franks with little or no splitting.

This thing may look hoky and cheap but it actually works! I was worried it would be too small to cook the large hotdogs from Costco but I can fit 2 Kirkland Signature Brand Hotdogs in it when I criss cross them (I cook them a few minutes longer but that's just cuz I love my hotdogs piping hot) but this steamer does the job! Easy to clean, inexpensive and hotdogs taste great! I like to stick my bun inside of it when the hotdogs finish because the residual steam is enough to soften the bun and warm it up, saved me from buying a bun warmer! You will not be disappointed if you buy this! SO glad I went with this instead of a large expensive clunky metal cooker, it takes up little space and works awesome!

I have scoured the internet looking for cheap home hot dog steamers for the last 2 years. I have ended up purchasing 50-70 dollar steamers only to have them crack and break after 6 months. I decided to give this one a try after all the good reviews and to my suprise, it out-cooked all my other steamers by far. The hot dogs were so quick (6 minutes) and the steamer it's self is so easy to clean. My Wife makes fun of the fact it barks, but who cares when you can have your junk food this fast and this good.

I bought this last week because it was cute and on sale! I tried it for the first time today and could not believe how good the hot dogs were. I used the 'kinda expensive' beef hot dogs and they have never tasted as good as when done in this little guy. I'm serious! If there is a negative aspect it would be that it would not appear to work with the longer hot dogs and you can't cook more than 6 at a time, but I cooked 4 and then immediately cooked 4 more.

Now, about the cats :) We have 5 large rescue cats who have never been around dogs. When Hero started barking, they all ran for cover. It continues to bark until you unplug it so be prepared to do it quickly because after a few drawn out times, it isn't so cute anymore :) It sounds like "ruff...ruff ruff ruff....ruff...ruff ruff ruff... continuously...."

I highly recommend this product based on the fast cooking and excellent taste of the hot dogs we cooked in it.

This thing works great, and it's very easy to use. Try using beer instead of water, the hot dogs come out excellent!
