Nuni Tortilla Toaster
I don't care how much I don't need a Nuni Tortilla Toaster, I need a Nuni Tortilla Toaster. Uno of all, tacos are the most delectable dish a human mind has ever conceived. Dos of all, when it's pissing rain outside, they are just as easy and delectable to make at home as they are to drive to Tacos truck or Bell to get. Tres of all, warm, chewy tortillas account for at least 65% of their delectability. But the space constraints of my stovetop mean I can warm only 2, maybe 3 at once if they're the street-sized rounds, and by the time the 6 to 18 I want to eat have all had their turn, the first group is going cold and rigid again. And heating them in a wrapped stack in the oven? Works, but takes like 20 minutes, and sometimes I need the oven for the sheet pan poblano chicken my girlfriend's cooking to go in the tortillas.
Nuni may be a technically unnecessary kitchen gadget, but if you eat enough tacos and fajitas, being able to toast their tortillas by the half-dozen in less than 60 seconds is so worth it.
The Nuni Tortilla Toaster holds up to 6 x 6" tortillas (or smaller) per warming session. Insert your corn or flour flats into its slots, lift the handle to fire it up, and then rotate the toaster to release them once the heating cycle is complete. No flipping required. Check it out in the Grub Street video above.
At printing, the Nuni was available for pre-order, with initial arrival and shipment in the US scheduled for the summer of 2017.
