Twist Up A Spiral Dog With The Cyclone Wiener Slicer

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]
