Bun Warmers

Keep your buns warms with one of our hot dog bun warmers! A simple trick to make your hot dog more appealing!

There are two primary hot dog cooker machines: hot dog rollers and hot dog steamers. The names are pretty self-explanatory, but there are a few key things to keep in mind.

Hot dog rollers are very popular in convenience stores and gas stations. They can be used to serve a couple of hot dogs an hour or dozens of hot dogs per hour, depending on the size you get. Plus, did you know that you can actually use these hot dog rollers to cook breakfast sausages, egg rolls, or bratwurst if you're feeling fancy? One feature that a lot of people look for is a bun warmer. We have a few models of hot dog rollers that come with bun warmers.

Hot dog steamers are probably the second most popular type of hot dog cooker. These are often used in higher volume locations like sports stadiums or convention centers. All of these models will have both a place to steam your hot dogs and steam your buns, making them really like a two-in-one. A lot of these hot dog cookers come with bright displays, so they can also help you with merchandising. You'll have to decide if you prefer the bright display of a hot dog steamer or the rolling, glistening glory of a hot dog roller.

One other type of hot dog equipment is the hot dog bun warmer. These are made to go with roller grills, so check out the dimensions of the bun warmer. You can put your hot dog roller either on top or beside the bun warmer. The biggest choice you have when deciding which bun warmer to go with is whether you want to go with dry heat or moist heat. Dry heat is generally a lower-cost option, so that's always nice, and you don't have to worry about adding water. Moist heat will allow you to store your buns a bit longer without drying them out, though.

That's a whole lot of information! So if you still have some questions, feel free to give us a call or email us, and we'd love to help you pick out the best hot dog cooker for your job!
