Unitasker Wednesday: Slotdog

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to necessarily buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Summer is quickly approaching here in the northern hemisphere and along with it are likely numerous cookouts and maybe a few campouts on your schedule. Well, if you’re going to be grilling up some hotdogs, you should know all about this week’s unitasker — the Slotdog (it’s the red plastic doodad in the top image):

Over the years we have written about a number of hotdog-related unitaskers, but this one might rise to the top of that list in terms of unitaskery. All it does is score the top of a hot dog. It doesn’t slice through a hotdog. It doesn’t cook the hotdog. All it does is cut lines into the top of your hotdogs. As the product description explains: “Perfect for kids as they love the alligator, dinosaur, dragon scale look”

I guess, if you need your hotdogs to have that “dragon scale look” maybe you might want this. But, you could also use a knife to do that. So.

Anyway, thanks to long-time reader Julie for sharing this with us (a product she doesn’t need because she’s a vegetarian but that she claims she wants, nonetheless … and that, for reasons unknown, is totally tempting us, too … gah! — unitasker temptations!!).

    It would be great to keep the mustard or ketchup from wandering off onto the bun.

    I’m the Julie who recommended it as a unitasker, and I am tempted only because I grew up in Buffalo, where charcoal broiled hotdogs (and burgers) are a thing. No boiled or gas-grilled hot dogs! And my mom always sliced them many times on the angle to make them plump up and get more “charcoal-y,” and this reminds me of that. I’d never eat one now, but still…

    That is hilarious! I’ve never commented on this blog before, but I read it regularly.

    Dragon scale look? OMG.

    I love this series! Have you seen the microwave ramen cooker and personal size Hershey’s Lava Cake maker (also for the microwave; it’s shaped like a big plastic cupcake). They woukd make great features for Unitasker Wednesday.
