Coca-Cola Hot Dog Steamer & Bun Warmer
Hot diggity-dog, with a Coca-Cola on the side. Though you'll have to buy the sodie separately, the Coca-Cola Hot Dog Steamer & Bun Warmer more than makes up for what it lacks in Coke reservoirs with a giant lower tray that cooks up to 24 hot dogs (or brats and other tubular sausages) and a top rack for steaming 12 of the doughy buns you'll slide them between.
The diner-style steamer and warmer has a 3-position cooking dial for High, Warm, and Off settings, and requires little more effort to cook your dogs than filling the tray with water, putting the cover on top, and dialing it up to High. Hot dogs take 15 to 20 minutes to cook, and reviewers rave about the machine's reliability and quality of turned-out pork product.
You can also use the steamer for vegetables, fish, and dumplings, or replace the water in the bottom tray with beer or other beverages for enhanced flavor. What do you think? Does this tailgating season call for a Coca-Cola Hot Dog Steamer & Bun Warmer?
