Unitasker Wednesday: Nuni Taco Toaster

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Reader Jaz sent us a link to the Nuni Tortilla Toaster. With this unit you can toast six tortillas in less than a minute. It has five different toaster settings and an automatic release feature (similar to the auto pop-up on bread toasters) so that the tortillas slide out when they are toasted. Just watch the video.

By all accounts this is a unitasker. It does only one thing – toasts tortillas. It is large and would take up a significant amount of counter or cupboard space.

If I had lived my whole life in Canada eating typical Canadian foods, I would have wondered who would buy the Nuni Tortilla Toaster. However, I have had the wonderful opportunity of living in different places and experiencing different cultures. Now, living in Texas, I’ve realized that owning a device that would allow me to rapidly toast six tortillas at a time might be the only way one could keep up with hungry teenagers.

Thanks Jaz for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

    But is it weirder/more of a unitasker than a toaster for toasting toasts? That’s also its single purpose. You can put small slices of bread in it, but you could probably do that with a tortilla toaster as well.

    My knowledge of tortillas and tacos is very limited but if we have tortillas we heat them up in the bag in the microwave 6 or 8 at time. I suppose they are not toasted but then what comes out in the video still seems pretty soft.

    We have a gas stove so I heat them up directly over the open flame and flip them once or twice. Easy peasy cheesy

    I found a garage sale rib rack that doubles as a taco shell bender/toaster. Simple toasted tortillas go on a cookie sheet and under a carefully watched broiler.
