Tortilla Press - Red Cast Iron
In Mexico, tortillas are a staple. They’re easy to buy, but we’re obsessed with the homemade ones. Chewy in the middle, crispy edges, with a delicious slightly corn-y taste. They win brownie points at date night, themed dinners, and potlucks. They’re also super easy to make. Once you try it, you won’t go back to store-bought. Trust us on this. (This size is ideal for street tacos!)
Easy as pie
Mix equal parts masa corn flour (widely available in grocery stores) with water; make a golf ball-sized dough, put it in the press, and close it. Press once, rotate, and gently press again. Cook ~1 minute on each side. Then keep your tortillas warm in the included handmade servieta napkin. For more details, check out our recipe.
Instant street cred
We once gifted a tortilla press to our friend Ben, who now takes the tortilla press to every Taco Tuesday and Mexican-themed night. Once he pulls out the tortilla press, all the ladies join him for tortilla-making. The tortilla press isn’t a puppy, but it’s close.
Made from recycled parts
Our tortilla press is made in Mexico from old Singer sewing machines and other recycled irons. We chose to use cast iron because it gives you uniform, flat tortillas - and lasts forever. And we added some Verve Culture flare with a bright, FDA-friendly, lead-free paint that prevents rust, and won’t flake.
