When you're too lazy to fire up the grill or can't even get water to boil properly, a hot dog toaster exists to help you shove tube shaped food into your face.
Just in time for National Hot Dog Day on Wednesday, July 18, this wonder of modern kitchen marvel can hold four dogs while simultaneously toasting your buns.
Shaped like a regular toaster mixed with that round peg, square hole toy of infancy, you insert the buns and hot dogs into their proper slots and depress the lever. Minutes later: Ta-da.
The reviews on Amazon say this is a hit, with some calling the toaster their "favorite gift" and a definite "on-the-counter appliance!"
Are you a grilled or boiled hot dog person? How about top split vs. side split buns?
