File this under "best kitchen appliance I've seen all day": Hero the Hot Dog Steamer ($27.34), a dog-shaped hot dog steamer that barks when the hot dogs are done cooking. You'll never have to resort to a boring non-animal-shaped, non-barking steamer again.

Hero on the Home Shopping Network

I came across this product while spending too much time browsing YouTube (it was for work; I promise) and somehow landing on the Home Shopping Network's channel. Their marketing must've worked considering they're all sold out of Hero.

And that's Hero in the wild ... I mean, someone's kitchen.
