    We have used this and like it as far as functionality and ease of use/cleaning. The only thing I wish is that the hotdog side was bigger. We don't really steam the buns except for one at a time because they get mushy really quick.
    This was one of the the best item I purchase for me business I would get this item if I was you. It keep the hot dogs and buns fresh.
    This thing is great. Holds plenty of hot dogs and keeps them hot. Buns stay just right. I think the lids could have a little better of a design to stay on. They do seem to fall in easy even with the support bar.
    This hot dog steamer worked great. It maintained the hot dog buns nicely steamed thought out our even as well as the hot dog. Our customers really liked our set up!
    This baby does the job. Keeps the dogs hot and the buns warm. The bottom buns will always get hard after awhile, so sacrifice a couple to the hot dog gods.
    I already tested it, it worked very well at my son's party, all children love it I recommend it for children's parties or small coffee shops
    Avantco HDS-100 100 Dog / 48 Bun Hot Dog is truly a great addition, It is fast, effective, compact and just a really great purchase. It is everything you would ever need. Nice warm buns and hot- hot dogs :)
    Above expectations, I use this as a part of my small party catering business. Usually for kids parties and this steamer worked like a charm, very easy setup and clean up which is very important to me. And more importantly it kept the hot dogs and buns nice and warm so I did not have to constantly be making more and more to be served hot cause this machine does it for me. May have to upgrade to the bigger steamer soon.
    I’m really disappointed. The machine stop heating the water after two months. I bought it at the end of November and not stop working. I’m not sure what is the warranty. I don’t recommend it.
    We use this at all of our events. Heats up quickly and provides ample amount of food. Easy setup and clean up. Easy setup and storage.
    This steamer is fast. From cold to serving in 20 minutes. Easy to disassemble and clean. Thermostat is handy when working with different kinds of buns. Recommend.
    We serve coneys in our diner and this warmer/steamer makes all the difference. Before we would keep our hot dogs in water to stay warm and they would turn an awful color. Now hot dogs are steamed perfectly and kept warm inside this cute display. The buns come out so warm and soft as well. This machine helps us make the best coneys around. Thanks
    This is the perfect hot dog steamer at this price point! The flexibility with the steam on the bun side to get the perfectly soft buns without getting soggy is great! Perfect for our shop!
    Purchased in May of this year, every outlet we put it on trips. Something is wrong with this. Contacted the company with no response. Not happy
    This hot dog steamer is an A++++ It works amazing and your hot dogs are going to taste great! And you can put a huge amount in at once which is nice
    This item is the second one that i had purchased. It is of the best quality and very easy to operate and clean. I would highly recommend this product
    Junky! Came with a small dent on top so lid wouldn't stay up. Quit heating after 2 months and front plug leaks. Buyer beware! Not recommended.
    We have been selling steamed hot dogs since the 1970's using Star steamers. 2 years ago we switched over to Avantco steamers. We own 4 of them. This steamer is much more affordable and the replacement parts are very reasonably priced. As long as you follow the instruction and have some knowledge of how a hot dog steamer works this one will work just fine. If you run it on high (175) all day you will burn out the electronics and element. After it heats up just turn it down to 150 and you'll be fine. Putting 100 hot dogs in at a time I would not recommend. The middle ones take for ever to heat up. We use 50 at a time. If your drain plug leaks than you most likely put it on too tight.
    So far this little unit has been fantastic. We don't do 100 dogs at a time but with 10 or 12 it does a great job. Keeps things super hot and buns don't get soggy. It heats thawed hot dogs up very quickly and from frozen it's pretty speedy also. Definitely hot on high. It has definitely paid for itself in the last month we've used it.
    Using this item has really helped with different events. We use this for our concession stand, as well as other special events and parties. Enough space to the amount of product we need for all our events.
    Very good product for marketing hot dogs. Still trying to figure it all out, but is very easy to put together and very easy to use.
    pice a junk after five month the temperatures only gos up to 120F i needs 175F to keep the hot dog temperatures danger zone are 41F-135F
    Product is built very cheaply and the drain plug leaks hot water all over counter. The steamed bun side gets the buns wet, not steamed, if you don't leave the lid partially ajar. Would not recommend this product.
