Create caramelized, crispy grilled dogs with this hot dog scorer. The blades make crisscross cuts, which create more surface area for those yummy edges to form. The slots also let the hot dog expand to cook more evenly and prevent it from bursting. And with nooks to settle into, your condiments stay put.

  • Materials: Food-grade stainless steel, ABS plastic
  • Care: Hand wash with soap and warm water or top-rack dishwasher safe
  • How to Use: Lay your hot dog on a flat surface and position Slotdog above. Press down with an end to end rocking motion and slice to your desired depth. Flip hot dog over and repeat on other side to prevent curling. For best results, use cold and firm hot dogs without a casing, direct from the fridge
  • Hatched blade system designed for even scoring
  • Allows for more even and consistent hot dog cooking
  • Unique grooves create greater condiment surface area and allow smoke and grill flavor to sink deep into the meat for an enhanced flavor experience

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.More > < Less

Why is a Canadian fixing our hot dogs?

About Slotdog

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 shapes.

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.
