The Home Pride Hot Dog Griller

Dec 12, 2008
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Cooks four Hot Dogs and two buns at once. Toasts buns nicely. Easy Cleanup.

Cons:Causes every brand of hotdog that I've tried to split open after a short while.

The Bottom Line: A nicely made novelty hotdog cooker that makes nicely-toasted buns and split hotdogs, the Home Pride hotdog griller is just too hot to handle!


Darn. I received the Home Pride Ballpark Hot Dog Rotisserie Griller as a gift and really wanted to like it. The griller seems well made and operates as intended with only one serious  flaw: It gets too hot and causes the hot dogs to split after a short while. On the positive side, the bun toaster pegs toast the buns nicely, the rollers spin the hot dogs nicely and it's easy to clean. 
There are only two controls: an ON-OFF switch that starts the rollers spinning and a timer knob that turns on the roller heat  and bun warmer heat. Is use, setting the timer is tricky because the rollers get very hot. The difference between not hot enough hot dogs and split hot dogs is only a few minutes. There is no "Keep Warm" lower heat setting, just "Off" and "Too Hot".
Oddly, the "On-Off" switch is marked only "Off" and "On" but does have a third, unmarked position that appears to just be a second "On" position. It does still overheat the hot dogs in this position as well. 
It does have a fairly large footprint, so storing it away is necessary for those of us with limited countertop space.
It is possible that mine is defective or that Home Pride has adjusted the temperature settings on newer units, but I cannot highly recommend this novelty. If you just gotta have a roller-type hot dog cooker and can either master the Timer, live with split hot dogs or figure out how to adjust the heat, this might be for you!
