Full Review:

You can enjoy tacos, burritos, and quesadillas when your tortilla is still warm and soft. Keeping tortillas in such a state, however, is not possible without a container to hold them. You can use some of the food containers you have at home, but they should have the same rounded shape as your tortilla. If you still don’t have one, our SolidSmack Household Appliance and Tool Research Team got the best tortilla warmer to offer: Nordic Ware Microwave Tortilla Warmer.

capacity of Nordic Ware Tortilla Warmer
The Nordic Ware tortilla warmer can store more than 20 tortillas.

This tortilla warmer from Nordic measures 10.8” x 10.8” x 3.5”, which might consume too much space in your kitchen cabinet. Yet, it offers a roomy space that can handle even burrito-sized tortillas. It has a depth of 2.9 inches, which allowed us to place 20 tortillas. Its size also lets it take other food items, including waffles, naans, pancakes, and French toasts.

Due to its size, the warmer can also handle waffles, naans, pancakes, and French toasts.

Our test impressed us at how long the tortilla warmer can keep the content warm. Given it is just plastic, it surprised us that it can retain heat for up to 25 minutes. And in case you want to heat everything, nuking it for 45 seconds is enough to enjoy your tortillas warm again. On the other hand, we found the cover truly functional in keeping the tortillas soft even if they were no longer warm. We observed that it effectively maintained the tortillas soft for at least 24 hours. To prevent too much moisture, on the other hand, you can put a couple of paper towels inside.

Apart from its excellent and efficient work in keeping tortillas warm, we also appreciate the visually appealing container. The terracotta color makes it a beautiful addition to your table, and it has a handle that allows you to lift the handle easily.
