Baseball season is here and it's Opening Day. That means baseball fans across the country will flock to the ballpark in order to root, root, root for the home team. Except that's not entirely true. Just like there was the "The Base Ball Polka" before there was "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," the order of events sometimes gets mixed up. The real reason millions of fans will go see a game this summer is because that is where the hot dogs and giant soft pretzels are; a baseball game just happens to break out.

Despite the deliciousness of ballpark food, baseball has a long season and there will come a time when it becomes impractical to make it out to the ball game for a hot dog and a pretzel. Lucky then the Smart Planet Super Pretzel SPM-3 Pretzel Dog Maker has seen fit to bring the ballpark food favorites home and serve them on a stick for good measure.

The countertop appliance (which looks remarkably similar to a corn dog maker for you hot dog hackers out there) not only prepares hot dogs, but does so by wrapping a soft pretzel around them. A recipe is included for making the pretzel dogs, so there is no need to worry about bribing the concession stand while at the game. And remember, just because you're at home watching the game on the tube, it is still OK to sing during the seventh-inning stretch.
