Since it is aluminum, I didn't think this would be that tough. I wanted to buy a heavier one than this one, that my wife picked out, but this is quite nice. We can take it with us to other houses, etc. Good stuff. Much easier than rolling out by hand, but now I am experimenting by flatting it with just my hands. It does prevent over working for flour tortillas, and corn is easy. We like to use some parchment paper between the press to reduce stick. We re-use the paper for weeks, since it's wiped down and only has corn masa and water on it.
But that is to be expected, given the dimension, but still it was s shocker.
But, once I started using it, I was surprised as to how quickly and efficiently I was able to make the Tortilla.
We used whole wheat to make the dough, so it was not real smooth as we would usually make.
But still this press managed it well.
There was a suggestion here or in some other press review, the plastic cover technique.
That works wonders, who ever thought of that, you deserve an applause.
With a cut open zip lock bag, spary / spread a lil oil on the inside.
Keep the rounded dough at the center of the plastic cover and place them in the press.
Press it once, rotate the ziplock 180 and press it again.
Viola!!! perfectly thin, easily detachable and even thick tortilla (roti) is ready for cooking.
remember to press the tortilla dough between two quart-size plastic baggies--dough on the press itself will make a mess; and wax paper tends to absorb the moisture from the dough and tear.
i like that it's small; there is no room in my kitchen for one of those big wooden square ones that are appliances in their own right. otherwise i'd buy one of those.
Like other reviewers mentioned, you have to put the dough slightly off-center in the press, otherwise your tortilla squishes out the edge. But that's not a big deal. Keep it off to one side and you'll get perfect, round tortillas every time. Also, make sure you use some sort of plastic to line the press before using (I use a storage bag that I cut open). If you don't, you won't be able to get your tortilla off in a manner that will allow it to be cook-able, much less usable. Also like others mentioned, the tortillas are a little thick, but not enough that I regret my purchase. In fact, I think they're better this way - you don't have to double them up on your tacos. Some people complained that the size was too small, but I don't think it was. The six-inch size is pretty much what commercial corn tortillas are (at least in my area, in the Pacific NW).
So, in a nutshell, I HIGHLY recommend this product, especially if you're still rolling tortillas by hand. You'll get a much more consistent product much faster.

I make grain-free tortillas with cassava flour. This press works great! For perfect thickness, do not press hard on the handle, light pressure works best. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Melissa
Bad making, there's gap in one side. This gap will cause the tortilla thin on one side and thick on another.Published 2 months ago by Pretha CM
Doesn't increase the size of the flour balls by more than double and still needs rolling. Not helpful. Was expecting it to solve my rolling issues.Published 2 months ago by Anjali
