These simple devices (why didn't I think of that!) create pretty, as-easy-as-pie pastries. On one side of a press is a beveled edge for cutting rounds from rolled-out dough. Turn the press over, place the dough round on the sealing "teeth," and pat it into the concave form. Spoon filling into the center, moisten the edges of the round for a proper seal, fold the press, and--bingo!--out comes a uniformly crimped pastry ready for steaming, frying, or baking. Instructions and basic recipes included. --Fred Brack

I'm an avid baker and have been using these to make empanadas and puff pastries with all kinds of filling without any problems. Some words of advice on these:

1. Remember...they are PLASTIC. The reason why these break is because there was too much pressure applied on the product. My tip for the customer is for you to not press down on the center tabs, instead...go ahead and fill the dough press, gently close the press with the pastry inside, then pick it up with both hands as if you are holding a sandwich, and press the sides together only until you see the dough ''sealing''. Another tip to help the dough seal is to apply a little water around the inside edges of the dough right around the filling with your pastry brush or fingertip.
2. Do not overfill your pastry...it makes it easier to break these if you spoon in too much filling. So moderation is key.
3. Keep them in a relatively cool and dry place. Plastic is very sensitive to heat and tends to weaken over time (try leaving a cd on the windowsill for a few days and you'll get the picture). I keep my set inside a tupperware box inside the cupboard away from heat from the windows and stove. And, they have lasted me more than a year so far.

The only reason why I do not give these a 5 star rating is because when cutting thicker dough like puff pastry, the circle cutter has a thick line that leaves a rather deep impression in the middle of the dough, causing me to have to roll the pastry again in order to make it smooth. But, with thinner doughs I have not experienced this problem. I like all the sizes it comes with because I can make snack sized treats or nice lunch sized empanadas filled with meat, veggies and cheese. I would definitely buy again if they were to keel over on me. ^^

Still have these in my kitchen and working fine as they should. So far the hinges haven't broken and they still look good as new.

I like making turnovers but always had trouble getting the filling in the dough without seeing it leak out because the surface I was using was too flat. These dough presses work great, the only trick to using them is to keep them dusted with flour so the dough doesn't stick to them. Otherwise they are handy and quick to use to make all my favorite fruit turnovers.

I purchased the 4 piece dough press set. Shipping was FAST! Works great with rolled dough, pie crust, eggroll wrapper, and pizza dough -- pleats are visible and the pastry looks good! Works with biscuit dough or puff pastry to seal edges but doesn't hold the pleats. There are 4 presses so you can make all different sized popovers, pot stickers, hot pockets, etc. Loved the cost per unit! It is a great deal!

This helped me make lovely cherry turnovers and two calzones before it broke. The hinges are held together by very cheap plastic. If they break you are out of luck.

This is the best mold for empanada's. I make big batches, freeze them and get wave reviews.

Have to be careful when you press down over the dough. Pretty fragile. Hinges are plastic and will break with too much pressure. Think I wouldn't go with plastic again. Metal would be a better idea.

Bought these for sweetheart since she was unhappy with the quality of her empanada construction. Now they look as good as they taste. These presses perform as advertised, making uniform dumplings. These things are fragile though. Simply dropping one on the floor shattered a hinge on one of the presses, so be careful. Would be four stars except for that.
