Make fresh tortillas anytime with our range of tortilla presses

The tortilla is a type of thin, round flat bread that has been a staple food in Mexico for thousands of years. Traditional corn tortillas are made using masa harina, water and salt and can be used as the basis for many dishes, including tacos, quesadilla and nachos.

Homemade tortillas taste even better than store-bought ones and are a great way to bring the family together over a feast of Mexican cuisine. Discover a tortilla press at Kitchen Warehouse to fast-track your fiesta and give you perfectly round tortillas every time by big brands like Victoria and Davis & Waddell.

Light top plate for more control

A lighter top plate will allow you greater control over pressing the ball of dough down to your desired thickness. If you prefer thicker tortillas, or are making pizza that requires a thicker base, simply lower the top plate down carefully and stop when you have reached the right width for your needs.

Cast iron press for extra leverage and easy pressing

A cast iron tortilla press is ideal for heavy-duty use. Cast iron cookware has more weight to it which is great if you want very thin tortillas that are all the same size and shape without much effort. The cast iron top plate will quickly and easily flatten any ball of dough to perfection and is also heavy enough to press down breakfast wraps, make pizza bases, naan bread and more.

Finding the right size

An 8 inch tortilla press is the most common size tortilla press you’ll find as it’s suitable for the average person. This 20cm tortilla press is compact for storing even in small kitchens and will make most dishes you need. If you’re really short on space, a 6 inch tortilla press may be more suitable, while 10 inch tortilla presses are commonly reserved for making burritos.

Difference between a cast iron tortilla press and cast aluminium tortilla press

A cast iron tortilla press is sturdy and heavy for making consistently round, thin tortillas. It also has a natural non-stick surface that will need to be seasoned with oil before and after each use to maintain it. An aluminium tortilla press is lighter and less sturdy than a cast iron one but is easier to clean and maintain.

Make sure it is sturdy with a reinforced handle

The handle of a tortilla press is the part that is used the most. A reinforced handle will ensure that your press is still going strong after many years of use. The top lever should fit comfortably in your hand and be easy to press down and lift so that you remain pain-free even after hours of making homemade tortillas!

What else you can cook with a tortilla press

A tortilla maker is a versatile kitchen tool. It can be used to create a wide variety of popular Mexican dishes, as well as create classics from Italian, Indian and South American cuisine. Here are just some of the tasty meals you can whip up using a tortilla press:

  • Nacho and cheese

  • Tacos

  • Mini pizzas

  • Roti

  • Tortilla lasagne

  • Quesadillas

  • Enchiladas

  • Naan

Different designs to choose from

We have a tortilla press to take your tortilla-making skills to the next level! The Victoria Seasoned Cast Iron Tortilla Press is sturdy for creating pressed circles of dough that are the same shape and size.
