The problem that most negative reviewers seem to have is that they don't know how to use it, which is understandable as the included instructions are not very good!
Here is the PROPER way to use this device to make tortillas:
1. HEAT SETTING - This is the most important part: Put the heat setting ONLY halfway up the dial, literally halfway between "Min" and "Max" and NOT in the "Med" zone, as this is far too hot for making tortillas. The biggest problem with this device happens when it is generating too much heat and causing steam to tear the tortillas apart. It may take some doing to find the proper heat setting, but you should be able to fully depress the lever and hold it for long enough to spread the dough without having the tortillas torn apart. The difference between success and failure can be only one or two clicks on the heat setting dial.
2. Place dough ball about 2/3 of the way towards the hinge side of the device (NOT directly in the middle).
3. Close device and depress handle FULLY for approx 5-6 seconds. On my device, the tortilla does not end up quite uniform in thickness after a single press, so I have to turn the unfinished tortilla around and depress fully again for 2-3 seconds.
4. FINISH the tortilla in a skillet / griddle. HERE IS WHY (see below!!!)
The difference between flour dough and corn dough is that flour dough will not spread well unless some heat is applied. Anyone can make corn tortillas on a simple cast iron press, but it takes real finesse to make flour tortillas with a press, as the dough is much more finicky.Read more ›
I've seen reviews of similar appliances like this one and I suspect that consumers have higher expectations in the sense that they expect to press and cook at the same time. Having used this type of technology in the past, I do not expect it to fully cook the flour dough but rather pre-cook the dough. Once pre-cooked I can then bake the tortilla on a grill or comal. I do not expect something at this price to fully cook the tortilla. Tortilla presses that fully cook the tortilla do not come in the price range of this model and are not meant for home use.
This is a real time saver because it eliminates the manual process of extending the tortilla dough with a rolling pin. Making flour tortillas using this electric press is a breeze. The purpose for pre-cooking the tortilla, it is to prevent the flour tortilla dough from shrinking once you peel it off from the press' plate. This is due to the dough's elastic properties. Otherwise the dough has to be extended by hand using a rolling pin.
I am really happy with my purchase and knocked one star off only because the light indicators are a bit confusing. It has two lights, one is labeled "Ready" and the other "Power".Read more ›
I'm very pleased with the way it works except that if you accidentally squeeze any dough to the front of the hot plates, it gets stuck in the crevice between the plastic handle and the top hot plate making it a little hard to keep clean.
There are also some reviews that say you can't fully cook flatbreads on this maker. This is not true. The dough has to be very soft and elastic. I checked out some online videos of Indian people making roti. They are pros. There really is no need to use the 'press and release method' to get the flatbread to the desired thinness. One press will do. It all depends on the dough and if you are willing to practice a little to get the technique down.
I recommend using an authentic roti recipe (the ingredient called 'ghee' is clarified butter) and letting the dough sit at room temperature for at least one hour to soak so that it becomes very soft and pliable. Then press the flatbreads, spin and flip them a few times very shortly after pressing them, and puff them up just like the Indians do in the videos. It's actually quite an enjoyable process - much quicker than rolling them out by hand, etc.
The bottom hot plate went bad about a year after I wrote this first review. It's very disappointing since this product showed such great potential in the beginning. I made many, many rotis with it, but not enough to make me feel like I got my money's worth from it. Two thumbs down.
