Aztec Mexican Products and Liquor - Buy Tortilla Press Online
Traditionally corn tortillas were made by hand. Aztec women made the Tlaxcalli (Nahuatl word for Tortillas) by flattening the balls of fresh masa dough by patting the dough back and forth between their hands until they created a round, thin flat tortilla. Another method for flattening the dough was to flatten it on a banana leaf whilst turning it with one hand and patting the dough with the other until a nice round tortilla was formed.

In certain places (such as restaurants or cafes) tortillas are still being made by hand. However, to make tortilla making easier, Tortilla presses are now used.

A tortilla press, or a “tortilladora”, is a simple metal or wooden tool has a base, top, and handle used to make corn tortillas.

Original tortilla presses were wooden, with a sturdy well-built base with a long wooden handle that when pressed would create perfectly round flattened tortillas. The tortilla press came around in 1911, and stayed a staple tool in many Mexican kitchens.

Balls of masa are placed in the centre of the press and pressed to flatten into a round, flat tortilla. The press is used to make only corn tortillas. Flour tortillas are normally rolled thin with a wood rolling pin.
