Hot Dog! It's the Giz Wiz!

Episode 1614 (2:17:11)


Here's what Amazon says it. The Nostalgia Retro Series Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster is great for entertaining and as a fast meal solution for the whole family. The large hot dog cage fits two regular-size or extra-plump hot dogs. Adjust the heat setting to cook hot dogs to your preference. Easily remove the hot dog cage and use the included mini tongs for removing the hot dogs. Color: Retro Red.

And the Giz Wiz says: Well, I thought this was sort of a good idea at first. But you'll see in the video buns really are not toasted, but burned on the edges. Also, it includes a metal tong to remove stuff from the toaster. (MAKE SURE THE TOASTER IS OFF, OR YOU COULD GET ELECTROCUTED if you touch the elements while it's on.) I think that while adults might think this is crappy, kids would probably love this thing. But no matter what, you need to like the idea of buying an appliance that only does one thing: make franks & toast buns, sometimes unevenly. It does get some points for it looks. It looks smart on the counter but may end up as a smart-looking dust collector. The price is low! I paid $19.67 for mine, and as of 8/3/19, it was just about $17. You can also buy a bigger version that cooks four franks and four hot dog rolls at the same time for under $30.
