What to look for when buying a tortilla warmer
Price – Tortilla warmers are not that expensive. The price of tortilla warmers can range from $5 to $30 depending on the material, size/capacity, heat source, and the amount of heat the warmer will handle.
Material – Warmers are made from a variety of materials such as high-temperature polyester, acrylic, and stoneware. The most common tortilla warmers are either in the form of cloth bags or bowls with lids.
Size and Capacity – The standard tortilla sizes are 8-inch and 12-inch so you’ll want a warmer of comparable size. While tortillas can be purchased in large quantities, the warmers should hold between 12 to 20 regular size tortillas.
Heat – Most people warm their tortillas in the microwave; however, some prefer to use the oven. Depending on your needs, you may find a warmer that can be used in both appliances, just like ours :)
Product Care – Since the warmers rarely have stuck-on or burned foods, the quickest way to clean them is by hand washing. However, if you like the convenience of using a dishwasher, our tortilla warmer is safe to use in the dishwasher.
Soft, warm, moist, tortillas play a big part in the success of many Mexican dishes. If you’re tired of your tortillas cracking and all the ingredients running onto your plate – or worse, your lap, a tortilla warmer may be just what you need.
