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.
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.
I live at 6800 feet above sea level on the North side of Colorado Springs and at this altitude you need to use more water to make sure the cooking time is sufficient to fully heats the hot dogs or sausages. Using the included measuring cup I wind up using that measure plus half again to get what I believe are properly and thoroughly heated results.
Definitely like the way the interior tray is set up to steam the hot dogs and catch any run off of juices and oils - help keep the unit clean and I believe prevents any build-up on the heating element.
Overall, for its simple purpose, and after learning how much water to use, it turns out a consistent and reliable cooked hot dog or sausage with minimal required cleanup.
