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.

Bon mots

"It is to be regretted that men of science do not interest themselves more than they do on a subject of such vast magnitude as [food]; for I feel confident that the food of a country might be increased at least one-third, if the culinary science was properly developed, instead of its being slighted as it is now."

-- Alexis Soyer (French chef. 4 February 1810 – 5 August 1858)
