Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® Grill Centro, fitted with the griddle plate and the rollers on the bottom of the grill, to High. Once preheated (about 10 minutes), place the hot dogs on the rollers as instructed below*. When the hot dogs have been cooking for about 20 minutes, place the hot dog buns on the griddle cut side down and toast, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. **If using melted butter, brush the inside of the buns before toasting. Serve with desired toppings and sides (recipes listed under Sauces and Dressings). *Using the hot dog feature: Assemble the unit with the grill/griddle plate, kebab drawers, and drip cup in proper positions. Note: The grill/griddle plate must be on unit when using hot dog feature. Please keep in mind that it is very hot when the unit is operating. Turn the temperature control dial to desired temperature and preheat for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Assemble the hot dog rollers by slipping the kebab skewers through the holes in each end of the hot dog roller caps. Pull drawers to open. Place skewers with hot dog rollers into the skewer slots so the star-like shape at the end of each handle is inserted into a gear slot in the front end of the kebab drawer. Using tongs, position the hot dogs in between two of the hot dog rollers. Four hot dogs will fit over each of the drawers. Close drawer securely.
