Simply the best easiest way to shape your shells in a pan. If you search around you will found a lot of tools designed for deep fryers to get the job done but this is the first I have seen that makes shaping your shells in a pan so easy. We don’t deep fry really that often in our house so it doesn’t make sense to get and store a deep fryer for rare occasions. I love crispy shells however and I was surprised how easy to use these were.

Where have you been all my life? I recently bought this because my friend recommended them and they are just perfect. I heated up a little of oil in a pan, placed a tortilla in between the Taco Shaper and in a few minutes the perfect shell. I’ve always fried my own shells but now I don’t have to pre stuff them with the ground beef.

What I love:
The shells came out perfect ever single time.
Tortillas don’t stick to the Taco Shaper.
Super easy to clean.
Easy to use. I used tongs to flip and remove the shells from the oil.

The Shellmintator makes perfect sense. I have had a pair of taco shapers for a couple months now. It is completely simple to take them out and make the the shell. Clean up is extremely easy due to the design of the shaper but would I love most is that I don’t only have to fry my shells. I can bake them also. Give it try…. You will like it!

Hands down the best ever. My family will never have another anorexic taco again. I’ve also made breakfast and desert tacos. Follow their instagram or Facebook so many more great ideas.

These are wonderful! We bought ores at the L.A. County Fair. There are a couple of tips. Dip the shaper in the hot oil before you put the tortilla in. The tortilla won’t stick. The other thing is the tongs. I use the Dragoon tongs – solid tongs with a scalloped edge. It took me a couple of times to perfect it. They’re a real time saver. The tortillas are crisp and not oily.

We bought a set of these at the L.A. County fair and were amazed at the great taco shells we got when we used them. Perfect shapes, easy to fill, and less mess when frying. Now we’re buying them for our kids as Christmas gifts.

Yep. They do what they say, and the tacos turn out great. We’ve used them in an air fryer and in a regular pan with oil (we actually used bacon grease, and they were like – so good. No words.) They work, so you should buy them. ๐Ÿ™‚ (obviously don’t touch the metal after you use them – use a oven glove or tongs or something.)

I loved the Shellminator Taco Shapers. They are so easy to use and make perfectly shaped taco shells in just a few minutes. We will never buy boxed taco shells ever again.
