You mentioned you'd soon have your own kitchen. Because I'm a big believer in multipurpose equipment, you may want to consider something like this, that you could also use for cooking. It would have plenty of insulation for keeping flatbreads warm.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

The instant I saw the first picture in the OP I thought tortilla warmer. Except it looked like ceramic and I've never seen one that's ceramic. But now that you say it is plastic I'm almost certain it is made for keeping tortillas or some other flat bread warm. I've been served warm tortillas in something looking exactly like that (but less aged) in Mexican restaurants. If it were ceramic the container would cool off. The lighter weight of the plastic insulates it so that the contents will stay warm.

It's a tortilla warmer. Or maybe they have similar containers in other cultures, so perhaps it's a flat bread warmer etc.
