Item #: 177HDS175
An excellent addition to snack bars, stadiums, vending carts, and concession stands, this Avantco HDS-175 hot dog steamer is a great way to add hot dogs to your menu and boost impulse sales! The unit's spacious design steams and holds up to 175 pre-cooked hot dogs and 40 buns so you are always ready to feed hungry customers. The temperature can be adjusted from 65 - 215 degrees Fahrenheit so that dogs are cooked to perfection and buns are always kept warm and ready to serve.
This hot dog steamer comes with an extra-large 8 qt. water pan for all-day steaming and easy maintenance. Simply fill the pan at the start of the day and set the temperature and humidity to keep your pre-cooked hot dogs warm and juicy! If the water level dips below the minimum, a low water indicator light will come on and an automatic shutoff feature will turn the steamer off to prevent damage. And since it comes with a 3/4" drain valve you can let excess water run off into a sink or other disposal area when you're done using it.
A corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel housing gives the steamer a sleek look with the durability needed for high volume snack stands, while the tempered glass front and back give customers a clear view of your products. Two glass doors offer easy access for loading and unloading, and a side hook gives you a convenient place to keep tongs. This model requires a 120V electrical connection for operation, and it has a 55 1/8" power cord.

Great price and great quality! Customers enjoy this machine weekly and its easy to use and clean. Overall great machine for my party business
This product was purchased primarily for a food booth at a heavily attended festival. We used it for steaming All Beef Hot Dogs (only) and a few buns, here and there. Overall the product is very functional, but I was disappointed that it didn't appear to hold up under pressure. After using for a while, the unit did not heat up product as quickly or efficiently as it does in the beginning, and I wasn't even loading to capacity of 175 hot dogs. At any given time, we maybe had 50-60 hot dogs steaming at one time, which it would keep them at temp once we got them heated - but getting them to acceptable ranges was a chore from a refrigerated/cold hot dog. Also the units top shelf does not remove from the unit (rack does, but shelf does not) so adding water to the unit and cleaning is a bit challenging. Good, economical product for smaller events where food turnover/throughput is minimal and you have time to get food up to servable temps in between loads.
This is a great size if you are limited on space. It keeps the buns nice, warm and soft. The hotdogs are ok not as hot as I would like but they will make do.
Smaller than some machines, this Aventco machine holds as many hot dogs...or more....than the more expensive machines. Easy to set up and clean, we like the way it saves space. Adjusting the temperature, hot dogs stay fresh for a long time.
