Tortilla press.


Recommended Posts

Thinking of buying a tortilla press and some masa harina. Anyone on here got a press? Looks pretty easy to get good results but not ideal with regular flour apparently. We're quite enjoying homemade flat breads and dips as a beer snack but they're a bit dull and proper tortillas sounds a lot more interesting.

I got one a few years ago for Christmas, haven't used it for a while but it was pretty good. After reading this recipe and using the method of putting a cut open ziplock inside the press I'd not go back to using the press without too, makes removal of the pressed tortillas much easier.

Will do but I haven't ordered it yet! Really want to get it from amazon cos I've got twenty quid in vouchers but a combination of no stock of the one I wanted, price of alternatives going up and joke shipping costs pissed me right off. Was looking at a bit over twenty notes and now it's nearly forty including the flour and postage. Oh well, probably order it tonight regardless.

I ordered it a couple of days ago with 2 x 1kg bags of masa harina. Arrived yesterday and the press is great and actually bigger than I imagined which is a bonus. Really looking forward to trying it tonight. I'll probably make some simple quesadilla.

Been thinking about my own tortilla making recently  and am going to try a wetter dough. I think the key is stack them covered with something like a tea towel after making them as this softens them slightly. When I was in the states in the summer I ate some incredible tacos and they were always two to three bite sized snacks where you got three in a serving. They always doubled up the tortillas as well.
