I'm a huge NFL fan, and have always liked Deion Sanders, and have always taken crap for it.

Yeah, he was self-centered, and a showboat, and mouthy/vocal, but man could he play, and he sure made it fun to watch.

I gotta admit I didn't like him so much as a studio analyst for CBS... almost a little too much personality for that role, but I didn't mind it at all on the field.

He was/is one of my all-time favorite NFL players. I have replicas of his Falcons, 49ers, and Cowboys jerseys and wear them often.

That being said, even with his name on it, I don't see this item finding its way into my future home theater lobby!:p

I have thought of something similar before for the theater. I think the price looks pretty reasonable.

Actually, there was a thread on this a while back, and the machine got high marks for construction quality, etc.

I only allow popcorn, soda, and candy in my theater. And that is where I draw the line. That being said, it looks pretty good for hotdogs and such. Still, if I want a good dog I fire up the grill and cook it that way.

I would love a good Hot Dog machine but, for me at least, they are not practical. It takes 30 minutes to cook the Dog and they take up space. If I had a real dedicated theater with a concession area, then I would definately have one.

I saw the old thread.
The price is right on this product.
Too bad you can't get a new 4oz popper for $125 or less.

The big downside is it looks like it will only heat them for 30 minutes (via the 30 min timer). If so, it would be difficult to get that week-old look like in a commercial theater.

For some reason that doesn't sound right..LOLYou're going to make me avoid eating hot dogs at theaters..although I try not to because of the price alone!Can't believe nobody didn't jump on it..I'd try it if I didn't have the mini one from Helmans.

I bought one and it does a pretty good job. It takes longer to cook a dog than advertised, but I'm not guessing anyone would use this just to cook a hot dog. I think it is better used as a hot dog server for parties. You can leave the dogs cooking and people can grab them as needed. Of course you'll need to keep reseting the timer. It's concession look fits right in alongside my popcorn popper.

It doesn't steam or toast the buns so that's kind of a gap. I use my Hot Diggity Dogger when I'm looking for a quick snack. Great char-dog and it toasts the bun.

Good thing Deion came out with this...that whole boiling water thing was kicking my butt! :D

Seriously, I've got like 4 or 5 different ways to cook a hot dog in my house right now, why would I blow $50 on this?

I live in Green Bay. People who buy these things to cook hot dogs and brats are spoken about in hushed tones behind their backs. Its not something you admit to publicly....at least not where you can buy a Johnsonville Brat Happy Meal at McDonalds. :D

Two things about Deion: First, I saw him hit an inside the park homer for the Braves and that was cool. But second, I loved it when he threw water on Tim McArver on Nat TV. That was in 91/92?? McArver annoys the hell out of me.

Hot dogs in the HT...??? Hmm, I'd be too worried about the kids getting mustard, chili and whatever else is dripping off them onto the chairs and floor.
