Cast Iron Tortilla Press (19cm)

An authentic Mexican cooking utensil used for manually making fresh Corn Tortillas. This utensil captures the raw essence and beauty of Hispanic Mexican cooking in an elegant press. We try to stock the best quality products – most commonly cast iron or aluminium.

*Please note: This product is produced in small factories and is thus subject to variation based on different suppliers and production processes.

A tortilla press must be used with a corn dough – made from either fresh masa or masa harina – Maseca. This press will not work if you are trying to make wheat flour tortillas, as the wheat flour dough will spring back due to the presence of gluten in the flour. Wheat tortillas should be prepared by rolling the dough with a rolling pin.
