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.
