Schultz Precision Tooling of Leechburg, Pennsylvania, has a reputation for meticulously crafting components for the aerospace, automotive and electronics markets. With the invention of the Frank Crank, it’s clear that the family-owned machine shop takes leisure pursuits just as seriously. The rotisserie-style campfire roasting stick has a knob at the bottom that turns manually so the food on the other end cooks evenly over the campfire. The 35-inch-long stainless-steel-and-brass tool roasts everything from hot dogs and meat to fruit, veggies and marshmallows, and twin skewers on each side keep dinner from sliding off into the embers. For an additional $10, the hardwood handle can be personalized. MSRP: $65

When I brought the Frank Crank home, my 10-year-old daughter, Maddi (left), couldn’t wait for our next camping trip to try it out. It was easy for her to load hot dogs on the spears, and the Frank Crank was long enough so she wasn’t too close to the fire. Maddi had so much fun with it, she kept asking to cook more hot dogs. This got a thumbs-up from our family!
