Everyone laughed at me when I described the Slot Dog...until they had one. I have purchase several as gifts after people raved about them!

This item was a big hit at the Harvest Festival. Used it at our community event. Everyone was asking what I was doing to the hot dog and why. I told them.


Use it every time we have hotdogs

My wife was excited when the hot dog scorer came in. She no longer had to score the hot dogs with a knife. It work as designed. Wife swears the hot dogs taste better. She happy so i happy.


Great invention

I had to try this out as soon as I received it. I followed the instructions and the item worked as shown. The hot dog was cute in the diamond shape part way through on each side. I did them in my air fryer and they came out perfectly browned and juicy. Was so neat to put in the bun and add my ketchup and it didn't smear all over the place and actually went into the little grooves from the cutter. Very happy with this item and anxious to try when I have company and do them on the grill.

Saves me from having to randomly slice my hot dogs to keep from curling up


Works great on normal hot dogs, but!

I love gadgets so I was impressed with the look @ nice carmelization after grilling when following the instructions to use chilled hot dogs before scoring. I also like to make Charred Polish Sausage, such as the Maxwell Street Polish served in Chicago, but because I was using the "natural casing" variety, it was too tough for the tool to score or cut the casing. I did get the tool to cut, but had to press so hard, that I ended up crushing the sausage. Regardless, I grilled the crushed polish sausage anyway & they turned out awesome. Next time, I'll try to find a softer casing on the polish. For normal hot dogs, I'd give this tool 5 thumbs up. Easy cleanup also.


Love it!

We use this for hot dogs and sausages. It gives them wonderful caramalized bites. It improves the flavor and they cook faster. Absolutely fabulous!

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.
