Tlayuda Press by Doña Rosa

Tlayuda Press by Doña Rosa

$155.00

Deep in the labyrinthine heart of Oaxaca’s Central de Abastos, Doña Rosa has been selling tortilla presses (of all sizes) to locals for longer than she can recall. From the first time we worked with this style of press, we have consistently marveled at how such a simple, seemingly straightforward tool could make such an outsized impact on a finished tortilla. Unavailable in the US, its pure heft and tight calibration make a range of tortilla thicknesses possible (where every other commercially-available press falls disappointingly short).

Upon multiple special requests over the years, we’ve brought back as many of these handmade presses that our suitcases could carry. Entertained by our efforts, Doña Rosa eventually agreed to make a limited number of presses just for Masienda. For extra style and food safety, we commissioned the presses uncoated and imported them to Los Angeles, where we had them professionally powder coated with FDA-approved paint.

This model is a 40cm version of our popular tortilla press — perfect for tlayudas or pressing multiple tortillas at once! This one clocks in at a hefty 41 pounds.

Disclaimer: Due to the overall heft of the product, these handmade presses may have subtle imperfections in paint, that do not affect usability. Use caution when opening and closing the lid, minding its edges and corners, which can be sharp. Paint may wear in high-contact areas after extensive use. Handle with care.

    Press is beautiful and as well made as the tortilla press. However, it was so heavy I had to return it. If you do not have a permanent place for it, do not buy it unless you are pretty strong. Service for returning it was great. Thanks, Tony.

    Amazing Press

    Extremly happy with these Tlayuda press. It has allowed me to make much thinner and larger tortillas than with my smaller, cheaper press. Made some quesadillas last night out of the masienda masa and blue tortillas tonight and couldn’t be happier with the products being shared here.

    Beautiful and versatile

    I love this , as it’s beautiful too. I like the weight and the consistency in pressing tortillas , been making corn and flour ones so far. But , I’ve also tried to press other types of flour dough anytime I need rounds . It’s been great for Indian rotis, and I’ve tried dough for pea kachoris , basically anything round and it’s been cool experimenting .

    Awesome Press

    Derek

    I really like this press. The size and weight make creating tlayudas shells effortless. It is easy to vary the size and thickness of each shell, and it is possible to do several tortillas at once. However, I tend to use the tlayuda press when I want to make huge shells. I was so impressed with this machine that I bought the tortilla press as well.

    Big Time Pressing!

    Michael Minasian

    41 pounds is no joke but this thing can press big, even tortillas, tlayludas and more! I found cutting up a gallon or 2 gallon sized zip lock to work best for releasing it. In store pickup is a breeze! Can’t recommend these guys highly enough.

    I love this press!

    Becky

    It is HEFTY and solidly constructed, it really saves me time by being able to press multiple tortillas at once. Also works great for flour tortillas (and tlayudas, of course!).
