Perfect for Homemade Corn Totillas!
Dagmar Merritt (Cincinnati, OH) 8/5/2012 10:03 PM
This presser is perfect to make homemade corn tortillas. Once you try them, you will never buy the packaged kind again. Corn tortillas are healthier and less fattening the the flour ones. They are very easy to make. Just mix 2 cups of corn masa (I use Maseca brand, but Quaker has it, too) and approx. 1 1/2 cups of water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and just blend everything with your hands. Make a big ball and start makink smaller golf size balls from it. Press between 2 pieces of wax or plastic paper. You need to play around a little bit when you first use it. You might need to place the golf size dough ball more to the inside rather than in the center. Remove from paper and heat in skillet without oil approx. 50 seconds on each side. This presser cleans easily.
cast aluminum and just beautiful

I checked out tortilla presses at Williams Sonoma and Sur la Table before getting this one. The others were crusted over with cheap chrome jobs, one that looked like goopy silver spray paint. One display model's finish was even chipping in the store - there's no way nasty flakes of chrome are going in my fresh tortillas! This press is cast aluminum and just beautiful. It works well and, if you use wax paper or plastic wrap when you press the dough, it doesn't require cleaning at all.
you will never, ever eat a packaged tortilla again

If you have ever had a fresh tortilla made of stone-ground corn, you will never, ever eat a packaged tortilla again. You can also use this to make the round wrappers for potstickers (chinese ravioli) and other chinese dough wrappers like bao (stuffed buns), shu mai dumplings and Peking pancakes for Moo Shoo Pork. Also works for chappatis. A handy device.
