My husband purchased this press for me, and it is so easy to use. I use two pieces of ziplock plastic, cut to fit the press, and my flour (Masa Harina) has a recipe on the back for 4, 8 and 12 torillas. These make balls about the size of a ping pong ball or golf ball. They squeeze out perfectly every time, and I use no pressure at all.
I have read that there are two types of presses: cast iron and aluminum. The aluminum is lighter, but requires more force. The cast iron is heavy, and comes with a "shiny paint job" that comes off with time, according to internet reveiws, but my dough does not touch the press with the plastic sheets, so this is simply cosmetic in my opinion. I did notice some grease on it, but I assumed it was to keep the product from rusting, being that it is iron....you put oil on your cast iron pans for this purpose. It was minimal oil.
To protect my granite counters, I put felt stick-on feet onto the bottom since it is heavy and iron. May not be needed, but it makes me feel better.Read more ›
In order to avoid contact with the grease (which there from the manufacturing process to prevent the cast iron from rusting - not necessarily a bad thing), we took a 1 gallon Ziploc bag (food grade plastic) and cut it at the seams to create two pieces of plastic. We then trimmed the plastic sheets to be slightly larger than the press. This works wonderfully, we only need to peel the pressed tortilla from the plastic sheet and lay it in to the griddle.
We would recommend this press to anyone interested in making their own tortillas, sopes, or other dishes requiring use of a press.
(this for Maseca masa harina corn tortillas)
1. THE key variable is how dry / wet your dough is. If you are sticking to the plastic sheets, add 2 tblsp of flour and try again. Just tweak it. Too dry? add a tblsp of water and try again. Iterate.
2. use plastic 1 gallon bags cut out, to line the press. No problem here.
3. rest the dough >= 15 min.
4. make balls around the size of a golf ball
5. off set the dough ball 1/3 towards the hinge side before pressing
6. press then turn 180 degrees, press again
7. I used a cast iron skillet turned up to medium-hi, but you just watch it and adjust
8. they really do taste better than store bought. We're hooked.
comment: for those who have problems with the sides coming together: take it into your workshop and try to shim it out at the hinge. Fiddle with the elevation of the pin and you may tweak it that 0.5 mm that you need. There prob is a bit of variability in the manufacture, but nothing a dedicated geek can't fix.
And try to act all casual when you invite friends over and they get fresh home made tortillas, "oh yeah, we really like this" then change the subject. Your apparent casualness will blow them away more.

Handle broke on third use. Looks like lousy metal or casting was the cause. Had to keep hand on ice all night due to pain.Published 4 days ago by Samantha Ray
Overall pretty happy with it. I do wish it smashed them a little bit thinner... I usually have to hit them with the rolling pin to get the thinness I like.Published 4 days ago by Thomas R.
