Ditch The Bagged Tortillas

CucinaPro Flatbread Maker 1443

There is no comparison between fresh tortillas and those found on the end-cap at the supermarket. Tortillas are not necessarily difficult to make at home, but specialized equipment provides the best results. One could use a rolling pin, and one could use a fry pan, but to get the best results, a tortilla press and a griddle are recommended. Or one appliance that serves as both.

The CucinaPro Flatbread Maker is a 1000-watt combination griddle/tortilla press. Producing 10-inch tortillas of your own creation, the gadget makes it easy to enjoy fresh tortillas without a trip to the store. Considering the non-stick aluminum cooking surface and convenient vertical storage, it may even be easier than getting in the car. Certainly tastier.

Taco Plates: For easy taco loading

Taco Plates

Tacos are meant to be eaten in pairs. One might think this is due to their relatively small size; one never seems to quite fill you up. However, there is another practical reason that the taco is frequently served as a duo: you need one to steady the other as you load it up with delicious fillings.

Leaning tacos up against each other is all fine and good, but now there is an easier way. Taco Plates are a simple solution for this age-old hard-shell dilemma. Made from recyclable polystyrene, the plates hold tacos upright for easy filling and serving. A special ridged bottom help to minimize soak-through, keeping your loaded tacos fresh and ready-to-eat. Perhaps best of all, tradition is preserved and you get two to a plate!
