The Original, The Authentic
You won't believe how easy it is to make your own tortillas at home. Gain control over what you and your family eat by choosing your own, fresh ingredients, without all the fillers and preservatives.
The Victoria tortilla press has already pressed hundreds of millions of tortillas into perfection - both at home and in authentic restaurants all over the world.
It really is so fast and easy, you'll quickly make a habit of it.
Smart Design for Delicious Tortillas and Patacones
Reinforced Handle Design
Some say it takes 10,000 hours to make an expert. But we think hundreds of millions of tortillas are a better metric for us. This is why we have improved the handle after continuous shipping and usage tests and feedback.
Flat as a... Tortilla!
We use the most advanced and precise sand casting molding techniques and equipment - guaranteeing perfectly flat plates for perfectly flat tortillas.
High Quality Ingredients
As a three-generation family company, we care about the ingredients that enter your home (and ours). High quality iron deserves to be seasoned with high quality ingredients - & that's what we do. All our cast iron is seasoned at high temperatures with organic flaxseed oil.
Pun intended. Tortillas are not the only thing you'll love home-making from scratch. The Victoria press is great for empanadas, flat breads, arepas, tostones, and more!
Ready to make your own, natural and fresh tortillas?
Start by making your masa dough according to the instructions on the package. For this example, we'll use Maseca: just mix 2 cups of Maseca, 1.25 cups of water, and a pinch of salt. Mix the dough until it has the consistency of Play Dough. Once ready, separate the dough into 16 small balls about 1.25 inch wide.
For over 75 years, Victoria has been perfecting the art of smart design in cast iron cookware, finding the perfect balance between tradition & innovation. Make perfectly natural, flat and consistently thin tortillas with the internationally known Victoria Cast Iron Tortilla Press. The heavyweight construction means less effort and more consistency when pressing. This is the real deal. Say goodbye to store-bought tortillas (who knows what they even put in those) and hello to fun, fresh and healthy tortillas! This press is also known as a Pataconera and is great for making: tortillas, patacones, tostones, empanadas, arepas and more. Yes, it's even strong enough for fried plantain tostones!.

If you neeed a recipe, Google "tortilla recipe j kenji lopez-alt" and it'll pull up his recipe on SeriousEats. Great stuff! This is a really fun taco book with a lot of tacos off the beaten path. Tacos: Recipes and Provocations Pics 2-4 below are tacos I made out of that book. Pic 5 is Tacos al Pastor. Google "tacos al pastor j kenji lopez-alt". It takes a few days, but very worth it.
If you don't have a tostonera, this works really well as a tostone (fried plantain) press, too. Just use your hand instead of the handle, and don't press all the way.
I make my own beans and rice, but have been using store bought tortillas. I decided I was done with that, got some Masa Harina and started making my own. I used a rolling pin, bottom of a pan, but couldn't get that uniformly thin tortilla I desired.
I researched tortilla presses, read the reviews and decided to pay a bit more for this one. I'm glad I did.
The press arrived in good condition, and I got two rivets and cotter pins in case one broke.
It doesn't take that much pressure to create a lovely, thin tortilla, so I'm not sure how people are breaking handles on these things.
A few hints for perfect tortillas:
Use a plastic gallon storage bag (cut all but one of the sides to create a “hinge”) you don't even need to buy ziplock ones, Fred Meyer (Kroger) has super cheap bags w/o the zip lock. You can wash and re-use them. They are much easier to work with than cling wrap.
Don't be beholden to the recipe; a lot of factors including humidity can affect how sticky your dough is. Play with it a bit when you are making your ball; if it's a bit sticky, add some more masa. You'll feel when it's right.
Put your golf ball size ball in between the plastic on the center of your press and flatten it a bit (I used a hot sauce bottle as a rolling pin) then press gently.
Turn the plastic around 180 degrees and then press again a little bit more firmly, this will give you a more even and round tortilla.
Peel the top sheet of plastic off, then put the tortilla in your hand and peel the plastic off the tortilla, not the other way around and then put it right on your pan.
Perfect tortillas! (don't forget to add a pinch of salt)
