It could be improved. First, while hot dogs do come in various sizes, these molds are too short for almost any hot dog. We ended up cutting off the ends of all of them, and then making a corn dog composed of 3 end pieces. It did such a nice job with cooking the bread that you couldn't tell which one wasn't a single dog. Second, it would be nice if the plates were removeable for easier cleaning. I'm still giving this 5 stars because I had an awesome dinner with it.
Overall, glad I bought it, and I would buy it again. Single use appliances are generally not my favorite, but corn dogs need this type of device, and everybody needs home-made corn dogs.

Wow.... still loving this corn dog maker. Same comments as above--it's not perfect, but everybody in the family looks forward to corn dog night. We use it about once every 2 weeks. We're still buying standard hot dogs, cutting off the ends, and then making a corn dog of cut-off pieces. Another reviewer suggested buying really long hot dogs and cutting them in half. I like that idea, but not sure if they make long chicken hot-dogs. Go ahead and buy this great device, get some spicy honey mustard, and enjoy!
The reviews on Amazon were so helpful. One guy said 7 minutes of cook time seemed to be the charm - boy was he correct - 7 minutes is perfect. He also said do not be afraid to make a mess and really slop and cover your dogs - again right - mine turned out shaped well and browned all around - and it was not TOO messy to clean up either. ( I like to add some extra batter to in between the hotdogs just before I close the machine - that way nothing gushes out the back of the machine - just into the wells - and my dogs are always well shaped and cooked.)
Also - you will have to cut 1/3 off of each dog. Works out well because you use 2 of the pieces left over to make another corndog. 4 hotdogs made 6 corndogs. That is the main con of this item - it is not full sized...
Another tip - I let my machine heat up a full 10 minutes prior to cooking. There ARE heating elements in the top of the machine - you just have to use enough batter to plump to reach the top. Plus letting them cool slightly for about one minute (with the machine open and unplugged) before removing them helps keep them whole too.
I also learned a trick to get the corndogs out in one piece. I didn't use sticks, by the way - just hot dogs and batter. Anyway after 7 minutes open it up, let them cool slightly, then start at the front using your fingers and - carefully - wiggle each corndog a bit to help free it - then just rock and roll the front one off of the cook surface right onto your plate.Read more ›

Speedy delivery. Works great. Have to experiment to get the right batter consistency & dog length. Part of the fun.Published 2 days ago by bobbymocs
I am a little torn on writing this review between 3 and 4 stars.
The pros: 1) makes decent corn and cheese dogs -- as it should since it's a 1 trick pony 2) Heats up quickly... Read more
It looks like a good idea, but I couldn't get the batter to stick to the dog. I have tried everything. Now what I did do was use it for bead sticks..that works great. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Dana B
