A smart little tool, this dumpling press from Helen's Asian Kitchen turns out perfectly uniform potstickers, pasties, and perogies in short time and with little mess. Designed in collaboration with Helen Chen, daughter of Chinese food pioneer Joyce Chen, the piece is crafted from polyethylene for lightweight use. Its hinged design produces 4-inch dumplings by tidily tucking filling inside and crimping the edge with a close of the handles. Removal is simple so prep and cooking are streamlined. For cleanup, the press goes into the dishwasher or scrubs up easily by hand. --Emily Bedard

Though I am pleased with the quality of the materials used and the craftsmanship of this item, particularly at this price point, I have a major complaint with the design of this product. That is, the well isn't deep enough.

The part of the press that is deepest, to allow for filling, is a circle in the middle of the press (as it should be), measuring only 3cm in diameter. This circle lies only 7mm (in height) from the edges of the press. There simply isn't enough room for filling. Even for small dumplings, which don't require much, this press doesn't hold enough to make a palatable dumpling that isn't made up almost entirely of dough (or wrapper, if that's what's used).

As far as the difficulty in finding appropriately-sized wrappers to fit this press that has been expressed by some here, I have a simple solution. I used the bottom of the press to score my rolled-out dough, then cut circles perfectly sized to fit this press. I'm sure this method could be employed to trim pre-cut wrappers, too. But this raises the question, if one has to employ my method, is the product truly simplifying the dumpling-making process?

I don't like this product, because the dumplings that can be produced through its use have an oddly small ratio of filling to wrapper/dough. I do think that the item appears to be well-made of decent materials and thus should be durable. While I can see the attraction of a press like this which promises to save time and simplify the process of pressing dumplings, I didn't find that it made the process any easier than by hand. To me, the craftsmanship and durability are trumped by the poor design and lack of ability of the product to simplify the process for which it was designed.

I love this thing. Every year my husband and I make the dough, filling, and shape at least 250 pierogis for Xmas eve dinner. We used to have to accomplish this lofty goal by hand, which would generally end with both of us dealing with a case of what felt like carpel-tunnel, but no more!! With this handy press we made 450 pierogi yesterday with nary and injury!

A few tips for users:

1) We found that it is best to dust the inside of the press with a little flour each time, or else the dough sticks.

2) Make sure the dough pieces do not get caught in the hinges when you are pressing because it's difficult to get the dumpling out

3) have a sharp knife handy because you have to cut away the excess dough from the outside of the gadget. (In the future I would like to purchase a new stainless steal press which will cut the excess for me)

All in all a great product!!!

This small product is great for all the pierogi makers. I've used my fingers to crimp the edges and this dumpling press made the pierogi look better and they were tighly secure.

My family loves potstickers and I've been making Alton Brown's Perfect Potstickers recipe (Google it, trust me) for years, but filling the wontons and sealing them takes so long that I rarely bother making it. We traditionally make them for Christmas Eve dinner but rarely any other time because they're too much work (yeah, I'm a lazy cook, did I mention that?). So, I bought two of these to see if it would make the process any easier and/or faster. Well, I made potstickers last night (a random Thursday in February) with the "help" of two toddlers and YES, it makes the process much, much easier and faster! I'm so glad I got it and now I'm searching for other recipes/uses for this handy little tool!

I enjoy dim sum and we live in an area where it is not really available. So we tackle dumplings every once and a while. This press has simplified the process of making pot stickers quite a bit. I can make an entire package of dumpling skins into pot stickers in less than 1/2 hour. No that doesn't cover making the filling itself, but overall in an hour we can be eating lovely dumplings and I am not going crazy with wetting and folding the dumpling skins and having them unfold or tear. This press holds a slightly less than a teaspoon of filling and a round dumpling skin and just a quick press and onto the next one. I do use a fingertip of water on the edge on one side. I like the little handles. I spray mine with a touch of Pam at the beginning and it works for the whole batch. It is still a messy process so I make mine over a sheet pan and keep the mess more contained. This is a great inexpensive easy to use product and definitely a great idea.
Recently we bought some larger potsticker skins from a San Francisco market which were a bit larger and thicker.
They held almost 2 teaspoons of filling and it was a much faster and easier process to make dinner. Mostly we use the supermarket variety which are round and about 1/2" smaller than the inside of the press which is why those dumplings are so small. The press is still one of my favorite dedicated kitchen tools.

It's not an impressive-looking tool but it does what it's meant to do and is so much faster than crimping dumplings by hand.

I recently picked this up for a couple of bucks at a kitchen supply store and absolutely love it. I do a fair amount of Asian cooking and regularly had trouble closing dumplings in a uniform manner. Folding and pinching in the traditional style sometimes worked, sometimes needed work and sometimes needed some crimping and sometimes needed to just be tossed in frustration.

What the heck I thought. Maybe this will work, if it doesn't it's only a couple of bucks. I have a Chinese-American co-worker and as I picked it up I could just hear her saying "That's not Chinese."

I got my wrappers from the market, made the stuffing and got out the press. And it worked like a dream! Each dumpling coming out perfectly. I've read here that some people had problems but it sounds like problems with the wrapper, not the press itself. I was so use to having a 30% failure rate that I found I'd made too many it was great!

The next day I proudly told me co-worker about the tool. She raised an eyebrow. I showed it to her. "That's not Chinese." She firmly declared. "No" I said, "but it sure works great."
