Not the best

Maybe I haven't got the hang of it yet, but it doesn't score the dog as easily as it looks on the video. I will keep trying, but not a big fan of this product.


Great if you love hot dogs

7/1/2016 by Chris

If you love hot dogs, I'm sure this will be right up your alley. I got one because we were doing a birthday BBQ for my Dad, and he was excited about the concept of extra grilling surface and more charred-goodness. It works well, just as described. However, It is quite a big kitchen tool for something so frivolous, so make sure you are really committed to hot dogs. My bigger question is really how necessary is something like this?? Folks at the BBQ said it did make the hot dogs look cool, but I got a little mocked when I used the line in the ad about the condiments having someplace to rest! The general retort was, "all these years and I never had an issue finding a place on my hot dog for condiments." The last thing to keep in mind is that when you score the hot dogs with this tool, they become very flimsy on the grill and are a little harder to manage during the grilling process because of that.


Will keep trying

I bought 3. One for home. One for my son and one I am giving as a gift this weekend. Just thought it was so cool. My only problem is that we almost exclusively eat natural casing hot dogs, and it did not pierce the skin. I never thought about that ! It is kind of large to store. My son has not tried his. Anyway, we will try again with regular hotdogs and see what happens. Thanks for asking.


Wife didn't like it

Could have done without this one

Thought it was a good idea - used it once - not really that great.


I need more practice

I have used the slotdog for two different meals so far. The first time I pressed much too hard on both sides and lost a lot of hotdog when removing the Slotdog where the meat had stuck in the cutter area used. Also this first time I smashed most of the hot dogs out of all recognition and burned them using my normal hot dog cooking times. I did better the second time by pressing less firmly - I had to wiggle the Slotdog a bit to get it to cut into the hot dogs that way - and this time about 1/2 of the dogs came out almost just as I had anticipated, with carmelization around the cuts. I still lost a bit of meat from some of the hot dogs. I bought this item because I like my hot dogs slightly burned and wanted that result all over the surface instead of primarily at the ends. If I knew then what I know now I would not have purchased the Slotdog - too much work for too little result.


smash dog

Didn't work well. it smashed the hot dogs before you could get the marks on both sides. Maybe freeze hot dogs for 10 minutes to make them firm??? Not sure I haven't tried yet.


not for real hot dogs

A great idea but doesn't work on sausages

6/3/2016 by Sherri

Tried it on several different type of sausages (cold right out of the refrig) and the blades would not cut through the casing--just smashed the sausage and split it in places. So it's back to hand-scoring for me and the slotdogs I purchased for myself and as gifts for friends are being returned.

The Slotdog Story

Why is a Canadian fixing our hot dogs?

Delicious Dogs

A freshly grilled hot dog is often the first sign of cookout season—the period when Americans consume about 7 billion dogs. But while we were busy chowing down, an enterprising Canadian created a hot dog scorer that takes those backyard meals up a notch.

Slotdog is a bladed tool that makes diamond-shaped cuts in hot dogs. These cuts create caramelized, crispy edges when they hit the grill. And those nooks are the perfect place for mustard, ketchup, and other condiments to seep down into.

Another benefit: the scored surface releases steam. Your hot dogs won’t burst or bend into unappetizing

Maker Daniel Crichton experimented with different cuts and pokes on hot dogs to try to liven them up—and ultimately created this tool that takes them in a new taste direction.

The blades on Slotdog are sharp, so be careful when you press it into the hot dog. Press on one side, flip, then press into the other, and that’s it—you’re on your way to a better hot dog.
