Customer Reviews

This is the perfect hot dog steamer at this price point! The flexibility with the steam on the bun side to get the perfectly soft buns without getting soggy is great! Perfect for our shop!

We have been selling steamed hot dogs since the 1970's using Star steamers. 2 years ago we switched over to Avantco steamers. We own 4 of them. This steamer is much more affordable and the replacement parts are very reasonably priced. As long as you follow the instruction and have some knowledge of how a hot dog steamer works this one will work just fine. If you run it on high (175) all day you will burn out the electronics and element. After it heats up just turn it down to 150 and you'll be fine. Putting 100 hot dogs in at a time I would not recommend. The middle ones take for ever to heat up. We use 50 at a time. If your drain plug leaks than you most likely put it on too tight.

Using this item has really helped with different events. We use this for our concession stand, as well as other special events and parties. Enough space to the amount of product we need for all our events.

So far this little unit has been fantastic. We don't do 100 dogs at a time but with 10 or 12 it does a great job. Keeps things super hot and buns don't get soggy. It heats thawed hot dogs up very quickly and from frozen it's pretty speedy also. Definitely hot on high. It has definitely paid for itself in the last month we've used it.

This thing is great. Holds plenty of hot dogs and keeps them hot. Buns stay just right. I think the lids could have a little better of a design to stay on. They do seem to fall in easy even with the support bar.

This baby does the job. Keeps the dogs hot and the buns warm. The bottom buns will always get hard after awhile, so sacrifice a couple to the hot dog gods.

Above expectations, I use this as a part of my small party catering business. Usually for kids parties and this steamer worked like a charm, very easy setup and clean up which is very important to me. And more importantly it kept the hot dogs and buns nice and warm so I did not have to constantly be making more and more to be served hot cause this machine does it for me. May have to upgrade to the bigger steamer soon.

We serve coneys in our diner and this warmer/steamer makes all the difference. Before we would keep our hot dogs in water to stay warm and they would turn an awful color. Now hot dogs are steamed perfectly and kept warm inside this cute display. The buns come out so warm and soft as well. This machine helps us make the best coneys around. Thanks

We have used this and like it as far as functionality and ease of use/cleaning. The only thing I wish is that the hotdog side was bigger. We don't really steam the buns except for one at a time because they get mushy really quick.
