kind of easy to cut too deep but after 3 or 4 you get the hang of it.

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.

It works as advertised. The taste of the hot dogs is greatly improved. They have a little "crunch" and the mustard/chile stay where you put them. Downside ….This thing needs to snap apart for cleaning. Not all of us hot dog lovers have a dishwasher.
Use it every time we have hotdogs

Hot Dog Scorer

Crispy, criss-cross caramelized edges · Cooks more evenly and prevents bursting
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.

Daniel Crichton

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.
