Spiral Sausage Slicers

The Cyclone Twist & Score Aids in Cooking Hotdogs Evenly

— February 15, 2013 — Art & Design
If you've experienced one of those rare occasions during which you've been served a slightly fancier barbecued sausage, you may have noted the perfect spiral slices that must have penetrated the skin before the cooking began. Bring this touch to your backyard BBQ with the Cyclone Twist & Score.

The little helical implements by Quirky come in a large and small size for bratwursts and kielbasa or hot dogs, respectively. They have dishwasher-safe plastic bodies with metal blades coiled along the insides. They come in yellow and red to mimic the colors of condiments like mustard and ketchup; they fit in perfectly amidst a cookout setup. The Cyclone Twist & Score penetrates your processed meats to ensure that they're adequately heated inside.
