Sausage Thermo Tube

Hand-held instant sausage cooking device
  [vote for,

How often have you wanted to cook a solitary sausage? When you're on the move and you feel peckish? Or for a snack, when you wake up late at night with the cravings to realise your dreams of tasty "meat" product? When you've been alpine camping or skiing and you need some off piste meaty goodness? Or perhaps you just want to extend the joy of cooking a chain of sausages by doing them one at a time?

Now there is a solution for your uni-sausage needs! Murgeuz and bangers, Braunschweigers, frankurters, and bratwurst rejoice!

The sausage thermo tube is an 8 inch long hollow cyclinder with with a non-stick coating inside. A clever hinge system allows for a degree of freedom with the diameter - allowing entry for various types of sausages. Both ends of the cylinder are capped and both are fitted with a miniature spindle for rotating the sausage. Cooking elements are laterally embedded, distributed in such as fashion as to aid an even sizzle and an intelligent filter drainage system allows for excess fat run out into a separate chamber.

The current model, Thermo Tube Classic is powered by mains or attachment to a standard 12v car battery (for vehicular). Next season we anticipate the release of the Thermo Tube Nano which will specialise in cocktail sausages and chipolatas and be highly mobile, running from AAA batteries and scavenged energy. Ideal for the hungry jogger or extreme sports enthusiast.

The_20Lonely_20Sausage ahem! already cooked I believe [xenzag, Jan 16 2010]


       8 inches seems quite long, unless (ahem!) your sausage is substantially larger than my sausage.

       Don't want to run the risk of a bit of sausage uncooked, do we?!
Jinbish, Jan 15 2010

       A vertical form factor, combined with a spring loaded baseplate might allow for between 1 and, say 8, sausages to be insterted in the missile-silo-like holes in the top. As the spring plate is depressed and locked into place, the sausages are lowered into the device, and the cooking elements activated - then, after a (configurable) length of time, the spring-plate trigger is released, launching the now-cooked sausages into the air, ICBM style, to be captured by the attendant sausagee for consumption.

       Oohh... I like the spring loading concept.
Jinbish, Jan 15 2010

       Mmmm .... sausages.

       Now I'm thinking along the lines of a side loading pump action sausage gun...

       What about bent sausages?

       Is there a USB powered model available?

       My original conception (in order to create a plausible disaster) was to have have to-be-cooked sausages stacked around a heated core that might look like a anti-static roll. I have always been impressed by the rotisserie machines that could roast about 8 whole chickens, whilst displaying them, on the streets of Paris. I imagined the sausages orbiting around the heated core, exposing different sides.   

       This is the kind of Heath Robinson nonsense that I love (and regularly imagine) but I know is probably far too unoriginal for the Halfbakery.
Aristotle, Jan 16 2010

       Redundant. Check the last link.   

       Damn, I wish I had made some of these up now, though I still have the drawings in my note book.
