Chris McGill puts the 'Perfect Tortilla Pan' set to the test

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Some people love to go to restaurants where they can get whatever they want served up in a warm tortilla bowl! Well, now you don't have to waste the gas money on a trip to that favorite restaurant. You can make your own tortilla bowls at home, according the manufacturers of the 'Perfect Tortilla Pan Set'. This week I'm going to 'Try It Before You Buy It.'

I've had a lot of requests lately to try out the 'Perfect Tortilla Set', so the last time I was out searching for new 'as seen on TV' products to test, I found it and grabbed it for this week's segment.  The 'Perfect Tortilla' is suppose to transform any regular soft tortilla into firm tortilla bowls for you to serve up salads, soups or even ice cream.

The set comes with four non-stick 'Perfect Tortilla' pans that are dishwasher safe. I had some smaller soft tortillas in my fridge so I used those for the test, however, larger tortillas will make bigger and better bowls with this set.

The whole concept is very easy. Just press the tortillas into the molded pan, set the oven to 400 degrees and wait. For crispier tortillas the directions recommend leaving them in the oven between 9 and 11 minutes (that's what I did).

After the baking was done, the tortilla bowls came out great and came right out of the pans without any sticking. Clean up is very easy too!

You can buy the 'Perfect Tortilla Pan Set' online or in some stores. I found my test product at a local Walgreens store for $10.99.  This week, I'd have to say the product worked and the price was reasonable. Check out the video to see how it all worked out!
