Keeps my tortillas warm until I am ready to serve my tacos!
Donna Waters
If you wet a paper towel and wrap the tortilla in it or drip water on the tortilla and heat it over a towel, you will be very happy with the results.
Peter M. Ross, Ph.D.
Item is just like the ones used in professional restaurants.

Anyone that's ever been to a Mexican-themed restaurant knows exactly what this item is. This particular one is fairly large and will hold my home-made 8" tortillas nicely. With a damp washcloth (folded twice) and a layer of wax paper on the bottom it will easily hold a dozen home-made 8" tortillas. To reheat tortillas just place the container with the washcloth, wax paper and tortillas into a microwave for 30 seconds to two minutes. (Amount of time depends on: number of tortillas, how cold the whole container is to begin with, and dampness of the washcloth.) Also keeps my tortillas in the refrigerator nicely for a surprisingly-long amount of time.

This thing is good at keeping tortillas warm, but it's not deep enough for a batch of homemade tortillas. It will hold two 10 packs of store-bought tortillas that are thin, but the homemade tortillas, which I can never get as thin as store-bought, keep the lid ajar. The container is deep enough, but the bottom of the lid has a "dip" in it that presses against the tortillas and keeps the lid from closing tightly. What a shame. I guess I'll be purchasing the larger warmer.

With tortillas getting expensive AND being filled with hydrogenated vegetable oils, I finally found a SOFT tortilla recipe that I can easily roll out with a rolling pin. It's 3 cups of self-rising flour, 1 cup of warm milk and 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix it into a ball by hand or in a food processor. I don't even have to let them sit for 20 minutes. Just divide into 12 balls, lay a damp paper towel over them as you roll each out (roll from the center out) and then cook for about 30 seconds per side in a skillet. Other tortilla recipes were difficult to roll out and tasted hard like crackers.

This product does what it says....Warms your tortillas. It may not be the most attractive design but it does what it is intended to do. For the price and the performance...why spend more on a fancy schmancy one?

There are already several reviews which point out the advantages of this product. It keeps your freshly made tortillas warm at the table and lets you reheat the leftovers in the microwave if you have them later. Just include a wet cloth or paper towel to make some steam so that they don't dry out when they're reheated.

Several reviews have complained about the packaging and the difficulty of getting the glue from the label off the outside of the tortilla warmer once the label is removed.

I just bought one of these here at Amazon, and the good news is that in addition to being useful in the ways already noted, the label was not glued on. The tortilla warmer I received came packaged in a cardboard sleeve which simply slid off. Great!

I fell in love with tortilla warmers when I was on vacation in Mexico. No matter what the meal was, a pot full of warm tortillas would be put on the table inside a little plastic warmer like this one. Delicious and convenient.

I went with this Imusa warmer because it looked like the ones I used, and it wasn't too expensive. Unfortunately I didn't read the dimensions carefully enough, and this warmer is definitely a different size than the ones I used in Mexico. It is much wider and shallower that I was expecting.

Its size is 8.5 x 8.5 x 2.8 inches, and is designed to hold a standard supermarket count of ten or so eight inch burrito tortillas. I hand-make my tortillas, which is easy and fun to do, but my tortilla press generally gives me smaller and thicker tortillas. This means I can't stick as many in the tortillas warmer as I would like and they are far away from the edges.

Aside from not matching my tortillas, its bulky size takes up a lot of room on the table. This is fine if you have a lot of space to work with but for my apartment table I can't have both the warmer and plates and food on the table at the same time! Definitely not as convenient as the little tortilla warmers I used in Mexico!

I think this Imusa warmer is designed more for people who just want the convenience of buying a stack of tortillas from the supermarket, tossing them in the microwave for a quick heat-up, then setting them on the table. Nothing wrong with that, but this is one of those items that if I had seen it in real life instead of just the online picture I wouldn't have chosen it.

Oh, and as many have said, the label is a real pain to get off. I don't know why they felt the need to use such persistent glue!

Great product, made in China like everything else, but what's up with the adhesive label covering half of one side. Tried soaking it in hot water, dish detergent, used the back end of a butter knife but NOTHING gets that label off without leaving an adhesice mess behind. Even using Goo Gone (a citrus solvent) it took a good five minutes of aggressive peeling and fingernail work to get it cleaned up. This was completely UNECESSARY! Wake up, Imusa, get a sticker that peels off please!

I have always wanted one of these, because I love to serve warm tortillas with a Mexican meal, or sometimes just as a quick snack with butter and salsa or queso dip. Although it is easy enough to warm them by placing them in any small covered baking dish with a moistened paper towel and microwaving for a few seconds, unfortunately that method doesn't KEEP them warm very long at the table. This item is very similar to those used in most Mexican restaurants. However, it is a bit wider in diameter than I expected (presumably to accommodate larger flour tortillas for fajitas or burritos). I actually prefer the smaller corn tortillas, but I suppose it's better for it to be a bit too large than a bit too small.

My only major complaint is one that I have seen mentioned by several other reviewers - that large label on the outside that is almost impossible to remove completely. Even after soaking in warm soapy water, I was able to scrub off most of the label itself, but not the sticky adhesive that is embedded in the textured surface. Very frustrating! The manufacturer really needs to address this issue.
