lperry Posted January 26, 2010 Share Posted January 26, 2010 I want a tortilla press, and when I look at the reviews online, they are inevitably two-sided. A few people love them, and a whole lot of people hate them because they get lopsided tortillas. It is my guess that the uneven tortillas are from lack of proper technique rather than a problem with the press, but I could be wrong. Rick Bayless recommends a cast iron one, and I see a few online, but then the reviews indicate that the handles snap easily. That seems scary too. I've got a lot of cast iron, and I think it would take some pretty substantial force to break a handle. Too much pressure too quickly instead of slow and steady? I guess I want someone to tell me the bad reviews of cast iron presses are due to operator error instead of an inferior product. But I'd also like to know if I should just head to Home Depot and make myself a wooden one. Thoughts? Suggestions? Local sources? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
