Cook Hot Dogs with Electricity

Looks like the University of Alaska Fairbanks has grouped the engineering and culinary arts programs together. 🙂

“How does an electrical engineer cook a hot dog? 1.5 A for 60 seconds!

Taken at the E-Week open house put on by the engineering departments at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.”

    I did the same thing for my 6th grade science project. Lamp cord connected to two nails driven through a wood 2×4, hot dog between the nails. The teacher freaked when she walked by just as I plugged it in and the hot dog split and smoked. Not very safe but then again they let us play with mercury at our desks.

    YUCK! This brings me back to the 70’s when my Dad brought home an electric hot dog cooker. It smelled like electrocuted burning flesh (not that I have now want to actually smell that) and had a metallic taste. I need to run out now and get a real Chicago hot dog to get the memories of that taste out. Thanks so much.

    Try a big peice of aluminum foil between two of those electrodes. Shower of sparks.

    Boy this brings back memories. We even wired up a 4 hot dog cooker.
    There was a commercial version of this made. You would impale the hot dogs on prongs and then close a plastic cover to cook. Well the covers broke easily so people would rip them off and activate the switch with a fork. Of course electrocutions and burns soon followed.

    I’d first consult a chemist before eating anything cooked that way. Look for “electrolysis” to get what I mean.

    wouldn’t this leave the ends cold? think id rather buy a hotdog than cook one this way

    I don’t need a hot dog that fast. Boiling water is quick enough for me.
