Update: I’ve since decluttered these. Apparently my need for a decluttered kitchen is greater than my need for healthy tortilla bowls. Also, beware the kitchen gadget that only does one thing.
A year ago last August I posted this on my Facebook page:
And they said it wouldn’t last. Tom and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary today. Marrying him = best decision I ever made.
My sister replied:
You said buying your Ped Egg was the best decision you ever made!
Ha! I do love my Ped Egg, and I think I may have found another ‘As Seen on TV’ product that I like just as much: the Perfect Tortilla Pan Set.
I remember being strangely mesmerized by the Perfect Tortilla commercial when I first saw it. But when my Weight Watchers leader, Ann (Best WW leader ever. You can read her blog here: Hungry Poodle.), started raving about these pans, I knew I had to have them.
$10.99 later I had them in my hands.
These tortilla pans use no oil (not even a non-stick spray), which makes them much healthier than traditional, deep-fried bowls and they bake up in 5-7 minutes. Genius!
I made four bowls: two from white flour tortillas and two from whole wheat. The white tortillas were burrito size and the whole wheat were smaller.
They all turned out great. I put turkey chili in them and it easily passed the 17 year-old boy test. He found me while I was writing this post and gave me his four word review: “Those tortilla bowls? Awesome.”
Despite my desire to keep my kitchen simple, these are a keeper for me. Luckily, they stack up very snuggly so they won’t take up much room.
If you’re interested in trying them, I found them at Walgreens. I’ve heard that they’re available at other stores that carry ‘As Seen on TV’ products. Or you can pick them up from Amazon.
Do you love a good tortilla bowl? Do you have any ‘As Seen on TV’ products that you like?
P.S. Sorry for the shadowy pictures. We had a dark, stormy day in KC on Saturday.
