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 slits 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.

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


Fun way to eat Hot dogs


This thing is so easy to use and FUN! Everyone looks at the Hot dogs for a second then ask "What is up with the dogs?" But after a minute of staring at them, they think it is so cool. It makes the dogs different and cook up faster. Just don't use on sausage or other dog with a heavy casing as it may not be able to go thru those.
I took this over to a friends house and the homeowner and kids loved it so much I wound up giving it to them so the kids could use it all summer. I already have another one on order. Fun and easy way to make smiles.

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.
