Tortilla Warmers



Tortilla Warmers are covered dishes used to keep tortillas warm at the table. They can keep tortillas warm for over half an hour.

They come in varying widths from 7 to 10 inches (18 to 25 cm) wide. Larger sizes can be hard to find.

They can be made of ceramic, clay or polypropylene.

Some are dishwasher safe. Sadly, though the clay ones are amongst the most decorative ones, they are of course not dishwasher safe. Given, though, that Tortilla Warmers are only for holding pieces of plain flour or corn flatbread, they shouldn't need any more cleaning than a quick wipe inside, anyway.

If you want to use them for actually warming tortillas in, check before purchasing that the one you are looking at is oven safe, micro-wave safe, or both. A microwave-safe one is convenient because you can place frozen tortillas in it, zap it in the microwave without the lid on both to thaw and heat the tortillas, then place the lid on, and serve it at the table.

Substitutes

Two glass pie places, with the second one turned upside down and acting as the lid.

"The age of your children is a key factor in how quickly you are served in a restaurant. We once had a waiter in Canada who said, 'Could I get you your check?' and we answered, 'How about the menu first?' "

-- Erma Bombeck (21 February 1927 – 22 April 1996)
