What's a Slotdog?

    For the camper who has everything.

    The Slotdog is a simple tool. It actually does what it says it will. It cleans up pretty easily just by running it through some dishwater and giving it a hot rinse. While it is dishwasher safe, that’s one appliance that’s lacking from virtually all of our campsites.


    It’s also fast. Certainly you could accomplish the same effect with a good sharp camping or filet knife, but it would take a lot more time and care to make the cuts with the same precision as simply pushing down on the Slotdog.

    The biggest drawback is the price. Let’s face it. The Slotdog tool is a novelty; definitely not on anybody’s list of camping essentials. At nearly $18 (plus shipping if your not an Amazon Prime member) you may be able to come up with a lot more camping accoutrements that will ranking higher on your disposable income priority list.

    It’s also kind of shame it only works on skinless hot dogs which are the most boring kind. True wurst lovers tend to prefer cased sausages. But hey, you can’t have everything, right?

    It would be fun to have a Slotdog tool amongst your camping cookware. You’ll probably reach for it more than you think you might. Would make a great gift for the camper on your list who has everything … because he probably ain’t got one of these!

    That slotdog tool looks great for the output especially when you go on camping with the kids. Surely, your hotdogs will be a great hit. It looks like a waffle cooker where you place the hot dog so it will create the design. On the other hand, one downside is the need for electricity. Although there are mountain resorts here with facilities, there are also some that don't have electricity. Another downside is what you mentioned about skinless hotdogs. I don't think we have that here for all I know are the ordinary hotdogs that we also call frankfurters. So maybe I will just suffice with the hot dog on stick because they are also a hit with the kids.

    ...you don't need electricity @Alexandoy - the device is used for camping. Right over that barbecue you were talking about.
