Tortilla Warmer - where to buy? (Pasadena area)

Anyone have ANY idea where I can find a tortilla warmer? Not the iron skillet thing to heat them up, but a container to keep them warm (after they are heated). I want an alternative to wrapping them in a dishcloth to keep the heat in.....

Pasadena area preferred.

Do I start searching the local Mexican markets??? (If so, anyone know any local ones that you know carry them?)

      1. I think you can even find these at the Ralphs on Lake.
        They definitely have them at the Farm Fresh Ranch Market on Orange Grove & Los Robles.
        The best ones are the styrofoam ones.

          Farm Fresh Ranch Market just got some new tortilla warmers called La Tortilla Oven. We bought one over the weekend and love it! It's a fabric tortilla warmer that actually keeps tortillas warm for over an hour. We bought it because everything else doesn't work very well. However, this thing is pretty amazing and it does keep tortillas warm for oer an hour. The have a website called But you can buy it cheaper at Ranch Market. Cost $6.99. My two cents. :)

        2. I don't live in Pas, but if there's a Top Valu, Food 4 Less, or 99 cent store nearby, they all carry tortilla warmers...a cheap plastic one will do, just wrap them in a cloth napkin inside.

            yes, any of the dollar stores in the Hipsanic neighborhood stripmalls.

          2. Cost Plus has these in their cookware section. Look on the bottom shelf.
