This tortilla press is great.
Aficionada de Amazon
The device really does par cook the tortillas and you do need to finish them off in a fry pan, skillet, or comal to finish cooking.

I followed directions precisely.

I was looking for a tortilla press that presses and cooks (or at least pre-cooks) *corn* tortillas. This press looked intriguing, as the title indicates it can be used for corn tortillas. However, I saw the same press elsewhere with a note indicating it is *not* for making corn tortillas. Confused, I searched for more information on it. I managed to locate what appears to be the manufacturer's web site for this press. You can find it by doing a web search for "Ispasa tortilladoras"; it's at "www dot ispasa dot com dot mx" (make that a valid link). My Spanish isn't very good, but I believe the site indicates you can use it for corn tortillas only as a press, that is, not plugged in (with the heat off). You cook them separately on a griddle. I posted this information in the comments of another review, where an owner confirmed by testing that this press cannot correctly cook corn tortillas. So if you are looking for a press that can cook corn tortillas, look elsewhere.

UPDATE (responding to comments):

Tortilla fans, let me clarify both my review and what Ispasa says about the Tortilladora T190 on their web site.

My mom's family is from Merida in the Yucatan. I grew up on homemade corn tortillas (never flour), made by my great aunt who came to the US from Merida. This was before the days when you could get easily get Mexican goods; she would have our relatives back in Merida ship her masa for our tortillas. When we visited her, one way she got us kids to control our tortilla consumption 8-) was to have us help make our own tortillas. She mixed the dough, but we pressed them (on a wooden press made by my uncle), and she helped us cook them on a comal. I know how to cook tortillas on a comal (a decent flat pan works almost as well).

This tortilla press is great. You put a round little ball of dough towards the back, close it, and then 10 seconds later hold it down for 5 more seconds and in 15 seconds you have a perfectly round tortilla that is par-cooked. This does not completely cook the tortilla, it is made to cook it just enough so that it holds it's shape and then you store the stacks of tortillas in the fridge or freezer and cook them on a hot griddle for a couple of seconds before serving. This press pays for itself after about 15-20 batches of tortillas. Don't forget to store it with a thin layer of oil on the plates.

This tortilla maker is old school cast iron construction with very little to break. Screw Teflon, the cast iron plates work great with just a wipe of oil on them. The key to using this is to make dough balls about the size of a walnut or a ping pong. Put it on the plate a little back and close with a little pressure for about 3 seconds and then give it a bigger push down to expand it for another couple of seconds. Once your tortilla starts singing let up on the pressure because if you don't your tortilla will explode out the sides as the steam builds up. You then toss it on a griddle and put your other dough ball in. Once you get your timing down you can knock out a dozen fresh tortilla's in a few minutes. Two cups of flour makes about a dozen tortillas.

Before I go gushing about how great it works I must caution one thing, it does not work with corn tortillas. At all. I tried it again and again and it would just stick to the tortilla maker without ever coming out whole. I even left it for 5 whole minutes while I did one by hand and in the meantime managed to get 3 perfect corn tortillas-by hand-while that thing refused to work. At this point I was thinking that this product was useless and was prepared to chuck it into the garbage when my mom decided to try making pancakes on it (for flour tortillas the dough/masa must sit for at least half an hour if not one hour so that it stretches well and doesn't tear) while we waited for the dough of the flour tortillas to settle.

The pancakes came out great! And then we decided to experiment and make crepes and it did that too! They were both perfect circles too and well cooked. You just have to leave it until the lid easily opens up. If it's resistant it's still too raw to open for anything you're trying to make. I've attached photos of my endeavors if you'd like to look those up. It took us approximately less than 3 minutes for each. Just remember to heat up the tortilla maker for 10 minutes before starting.

When we finally made flour tortillas I was astonished at how well it worked, you didn't even have to shape the ball before sticking it in there since when you squeezed it the tortilla took perfect shape. We made a whole basket full of tortillas in less than half an hour! And they were thin and perfectly round and just delicious!

So I would recommend this product but I would not recommend following it's directions.

I tried making my own hand stretched/rolled tortillas so many times and they always came out crispy and hard. I bought this vs. the cheap Chinese electric ones. I am so glad I did. Shipping was by USPS so it went from California to Salt Lake City, UT then to Arizona. (I guess the government doesn't worry about gas prices)
The press works great. There is an English translated manual that has the basic dough recipe and needs little tweaking. The press does get a lil hot and you have to be quick. I "Blew up" 4 tortillas on the learning curve. This is really a good unit.
All the tortillas come out perfectly flat and are pre-cooked. Just drop them on a med-hot skillet to finish them off.
Lots of fun and they taste Great! If you have the time (about 45 min) to make your own tortillas this is perfect and a BIG money saver. Out here in AZ 10 tortillas cost $2.85 for the cheap tasteless ones vs $5.00 in ingredients to make 100's of them.
