Who wants a hot dog? Grill masters are shoring up menus for Fourth of July cook outs. Though hot dogs are a tot favorite, the links are responsible for 17 percent of food-related choking incidents because they become wedged in a lil one's airway. Before serving the ballpark treats to kids, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends chopping them into Cheerio-sized pieces that can easily make their way down a child's throat. The Toddler Bites Hot Dog Cutter ($6) aims to do that with one swift move. The plastic cookie cutter-like device slices frankfurters into half-inch sized pieces with a simple press of the hand. Would you use one to speed up the cutting process?
