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.

  • 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

Very impressed with the result of this thing can do. Now; I ended eating two hotdogs instead of one ;-)




Dogs more enjoyable and fun for grilling.


Makes good looking dogs


Hot dogs grill just like the pictures. The casing helps protect fingers, as I discovered during a klutzy moment.




A lot quicker then using a knife and safer.




After try it on some hot dogs and brats, more marinade flavors was present after cooking. Mustard, Ketchup and relish got in between the slots of dogs and brats give it a different flavor than before.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.
