Hello dear friends, thank you for choosing us. In this post on the solsarin site, we will talk about ” who invented the hot dog toaster”.
Stay with us.
Thank you for your choice.
I ended up setting the heat dial to 2 (out of 5), cooking the hot dogs first
and then putting the buns in, so the buns got one round at the second heat setting and the dogs got two rounds.
It was the only way I could get both to my preferred level of doneness, and keep both the dogs and bun nice and warm.
That’s not so convenient for a machine that is supposed to cook both at the same time.
But no matter the heat setting, the dogs and buns will burn.
If your wieners aren’t jumbo-sized, they will tilt over in the hotdog basket, press against the hot metal, and burn quickly—but just the tips.
(I honestly can’t believe I just wrote that sentence.) The buns burn along the edges, and the only way to prevent that is to leave the charred remains of sacrificed buns stuck to the inside of the toaster.
It makes a protective barrier, and is as disgusting as it sounds.
Even if I didn’t want to return this toaster, I have to leave burnt bun on the inside to protect the buns I toast.
Hot dogs don’t leave the same kind of ‘protective’ layer, so it’s burnt wieners, every goddamn time.
After all that unnecessary struggle
the hot dogs tasted…fine. The specially designed hot dog toaster accomplished nothing a normal toaster oven wouldn’t, except for burning hot dog tips.
Will I ever use the Nostalgia hot dog toaster again? Probably not. It’ll sit in the back of my kitchen cupboard, where all bad appliances go to die.
The saddest part about all this is I wasn’t even drinking when I ordered it. I just really, really wanted a hot dog toaster.
where the hot dog was invented
The Extra-Long History of the Hot Dog
The hot dog, a quintessential American summer grill food, has origins that may go back millennia.
Historians believe its beginnings can be traced to era of the notorious Roman emperor Nero, whose cook, Gaius, may have linked the first sausages.
In ancient Rome, it was customary to starve pigs for one week before the slaughter.
As the legend goes, Gaius was watching over his kitchen when he realized that one pig had been brought out fully roasted, but somehow not cleaned.
He stuck a knife into the belly to see if the roast was edible, and out popped the intestines: empty because of the starvation diet, and puffed from the heat.
According to legend, Gaius exclaimed, “I have discovered something of great importance!”
He stuffed the intestines with ground game meats mixed with spices and wheat—and the sausage was created.

After that, the sausage traveled across Europe, making its way eventually to present-day Germany. The Germans adopted the sausage as their own, creating scores of different versions to be enjoyed with beer and kraut.
In fact, two German towns vie to be the original birthplace of the modern hot dog. Frankfurt claims the frankfurter was invented there over 500 years ago, in 1484.
eight years before Columbus set sail for America. But the people of Vienna (Wien, in German) say they are the true originators of the “wienerwurst.”
No matter which town might have originated this particular sausage.
it’s generally agreed that German immigrants to New York were the first to sell wieners, from a pushcart, in the 1860s.
A hot dog (less commonly spelled hotdog) is a dish consisting of a grilled or steamed sausage served in the slit of a partially sliced bun. The term hot dog can also refer to the sausage itself. The sausage used is a wiener (Vienna sausage) or a frankfurter (Frankfurter Würstchen, also just called frank).
