Meet the Nuni Toaster
The Nuni Toaster is a newly-invented kitchen appliance with one goal in mind: make tacos faster.
As many who eat tortillas regularly know, there are only a few options when it comes to heating tortillas, and none of them are ideal. Many people opt between throwing them in the microwave for a few seconds or laying them one by one on the stove (with or without a skillet). The Nuni, however, aims to reach that “toasty hot, but not burned” golden zone–with six tortillas in sixty seconds.
Six Slots. Sixty Seconds.
The Nuni Toaster has six individual slots that can heat 1-6 tortillas perfectly within 60 seconds, and is designed to work with any standard pack of tortillas you can buy at the store (corn, flour, or wheat). It has five different toast settings so you can control exactly how hot you want your tortillas, and four sleek colors to choose from: white, black, gray, and red.
The unit itself is about the size of a standard toaster and actually blends in quite well on a kitchen counter. The toasters are currently being sold online and can be ordered for delivery in time for the 2017 holidays.
The startup, headquartered in Chicago, is led by its founder and CEO Elliot Benitez, who grew up watching his mother get up from the dinner table to prepare fresh tortillas for the family. “I did some quick math one time during college when I was visiting home and realized that over the previous twenty years, my mom had spent a total of 60 days away from the dinner table heating fresh tortillas for the family to eat,” said Benitez. “I wanted to change that.”
