          Nuni 6 Slot Tortilla Wamer for Cinco de Mayo & Everyday

          Happy ALMOST Cinco de Mayo. 

          The buzz is real around the next best thing to hit the tortilla world!  The Nuni Tortilla Toaster has revolutionized the way that tortillas are heated around the country.  I have to admit, when I first heard about Nuni, I thought it was a great idea but wasn’t really sure that I needed to own one.  Fast forward to the Nuni Team bringing taco fixins and one Nuni to our office. 50 tacos were fed to the crew in less than 10 minutes.  Yep, that was the demonstration that had me completely sold!  The tortillas were heated to absolute perfection in the most chic, elegant device that I am now proud to store on my kitchen counter.  Check out how it works here!


          Drop in up to 6 tortillas, push a button and 60 seconds later you have 6 perfectly warmed tortillas ready for your friends and family to fill with their favorite taco fixings.  No more standing over the pan warming one tortilla at a time.  No more burned tortillas from the gas stove.  And thankfully no soggy tortillas that were heated in the microwave! 

          The Nuni Tortilla Toaster turns anyone into a taco hero.
          • 6-Slot Capacity: Place 1 to 6 of your favorite corn, flour or even wheat tortillas into the unit. Choose warming setting.
          • Lift Handle To Start: Automatic shut-off deactivates the unit after each toasting cycle. 
          • Rotate To Release: Once the toasting cycle is complete simply rotate the tortillas from the unit. 
          • On sale 5/4-5/5 for $69 at nunitoaster.com (regular price $99)
