As this is a Big Clive thread, you can of course be assured that Big Clive has put one of those through its paces.

I was going to say, this is old school stuff.  We used to use an old toaster we took apart.

The HOTDOGGER!  I had one in the 1970s, presumably for making hot dogs right before baseball.  It then sat in the basement for ~10 years until I remembered it for college (no kitchen for underclassmen, so it was great until I bought a microwave).  Presumably thrown out when I got the microwave.

I must have had a later edition (1970s, the fronts and layout of the manual scream 50s-60s), as it was carefully designed to be as difficult as possible to electrocute yourself with one (great idea since I was likely 9 years old when I got it).  The white plastic base plus metal rails slid into a curved clearish plastic housing.  The housing was plugged in and the metal rails wouldn't contact the conductors in the housing until both rails were completely inside the housing.  Ingenious, but I am not surprised that there was a previous dangerous edition.

It might be difficult finding a pickle the right size, but putting a pickle on one of these yields interesting results.  (Best to turn the lights down.)

Oh, hey, the paper is available online

I think it was late 1959 or early 1960 when my father brought home an electric hot dog cooker. You set the hot dogs like filaments on rows of paired prongs. Shut the lid. Turned it on. And the resistance of the hot dogs did the rest. It should be noted that I have never tasted anything more vile in my life than those hot dogs. Cold canned asparagus was a fudge sundae in comparison.
