Mini Hot Dog Machine

Before the pandemic, visiting a night market aka Pasar Malam was one of the many activities that many Singaporeans enjoyed. While snacks like Ramly burgers and steamed chickpeas were must-haves, many also miss having a classic hot dog bun from a kiosk. 

To satisfy those cravings, there is now a mini hot dog machine where you can make your own buns at home. Continue reading on to learn more about this adorable machine. 

The design

You can never go wrong with hot dogs or hot dog buns as they are a classic snack for any occasion – from overnight sleepovers to accompanying a soccer match with your buddies.

This mini hot dog machine might come in rather small dimensions of 37cm x 18cm x 34cm, but it’s fully equipped to provide the full shebang.


Taking after the design of a standard hot dog stand, the top part of the machine comes with red and white stripes, and an element of surprise. It opens up to reveal a bun storage section that has a keep-warm function to ensure that the buns stay warm.

Right below, you’ll spot the hot dog grill that allows you to grill up to 8 mini hot dogs at the same time. As the grills rotate automatically, you won’t have to manually flip the hot dogs regularly. This way, you can also be sure that they will be cooked evenly. 

Based on the instructions provided, it takes about 15 minutes for the hot dogs to be cooked to perfection.

To get the mini hot dog machine running, you only need to switch on the power button that is found on the right. As for the heat switch on the left, it comes with 10 levels of settings so you can adjust it according to your preference.


Cleaning up is also made easy as the hot dog grill is detachable. Plus, the oil tray below can also be removed for washing.
