Tips - Tortilla Press

  • Always place the round parchment paper disks underneath and on top of the dough. This will prevent the tortilla to stick to the press.
  • If the tortilla doesn't look quite even after pressing or you'd like it a little thinner, rotate the tortilla in the parchment disk and re-press.
  • Do not clean with water: Cast iron is fickle and can easily get rusty but it will last a lifetime if it is cared for!  Wash, dry, oil, and burn/bake in the oven and it will be as good as new! Oil the press with olive oil then toss in the oven at 200° for an hour. Cast iron will rust if wet... Even a little! But rust hates oil so oil away and rust is gone.
  • Any leftover tortillas that become too stale or dry to eat as tacos can be fried or baked into tortilla chips
