Twist Up A Spiral Dog With The Cyclone Wiener Slicer

Tornado hot dogs are the biggest thing since spiral cut ham on sliced bread. By carving a groove into the link around a meaty central core, the dog not only cooks faster with crispy edges, but it also holds more condiments and prevents them from slopping out with each bite.

The Cyclone hot dog slicer prepares these twisty franks without the need for a common kitchen knife. Because, I mean really, who keeps those lying around?

The Cyclone is a plastic corkscrew-like device that twists around the outside of the hot dog, scoring an even-depth trench in the meat stick. It's available in two colours (mustard yellow and ketchup red) and comes in two sizes for regular dogs and larger sausages, though they come as a set. The Cyclone retails for $US12 over at Quirky. Pick up a pack for your next barbecue and for the love of John Wayne, please refrain from making any Lorena Bobbit jokes. [Quirky via Craziest Gadgets]

    Wouldn't this just turn proper sausages that we eat in Australia into a disemboweled mess of a meat mush?

    I want the #HTCOne for its: Design

      Exactly...and also lets all the good flavour and juices out as well

      Yeah, you don't do this with BBQ sausages. You need to use something like a Bratwurst or Weiner from a smallgoods place for it to work. Here is the video demo I used

      It's not as easy as the video makes out to get the spiral nice and even. However, they do turn out awesome and I could definitely see myself picking up one of these gadgets.

    For $12 i think a stick would be better.
