I started making my own corn tortillas, and at first used a glass pie pan (put dough inbetween two pieces of zip lock plastic, and then squash with the pie plate.) I would have to press hard, and rotate the round pie dish to get the dough to squish out to the right size/thickness. It worked well, but I was afraid I would break the glass dish and cut myself I had to use so much pressure. It was sort of a rocking swirling motion to get it to press out right. It worked, but I had to lean on the plate too much. I had used a skillet bottom, but you couldn't see how big/thin the tortilla was, so if you don't buy this, try a pyrex pie pan on two plastic sheets of ziplock material.

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.

This is an excellent tortilla press. We just recieved one and yes, it is a bit greasy out of the box, but this is not a hinderance. It made very flat, thin, and (most importantly) consistently good tortillas.

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.

First, an excellent item. It worked fine right out of the box. Tips I found useful gleaned from these reviews:
(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.

this product is great, i was reading all the reviews before purchasing and wondered about some reviews, because YES it comes with instructions,they are ON THE BOX , yes there is no extra paper, but why , the instruction is on the box in english and spanish! It recommends also to put a plastic bag/ paper between the press, so the dough will not stick. People who don't read the instructions will have a problem working with the tortilla maker. To get the tortilla off the plastic, you first lift it from one side off, put the plastic back on and flip it over , now you take the plasic of this side off, keep it off, turn it over and take the other already loosened up plastic off, now you can bake it in the pan. This whole procedure is important, so you don't ripp the tortilla since it is thin! frying - no oil - and about 50 sconds each side, heat up the pan first before you start, it frys better. if you take a piece of dough the size of a golf ball or little smaller, you get about a 5-6 inc tortilla, put the ball a little off center- like somebody else already recommended - more toward the back and the tortilla comes out more even- you may have to try out a bit - remember just when you started playing with play dough? trying out different things? :) One thing is true- it is time consuming,but to do it together as a family is the most fun! My whole family loves it! Hope this review is helpful!
