Deep in the labyrinthine heart of Oaxaca’s Central de Abastos, Doña Rosa has been selling tortilla presses 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.

Years in the making, the Doña Rosa x Masienda tortilladora collaboration is ready for its debut.

Disclaimer: These are handmade tortilla presses with subtle imperfections. 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.

Tortilladora Specifications:

Base Dimensions: 9.5” x 8.75”

Capable of producing tortilla diameter up to 6.5”

Weight: 10.4lbs

    Life changing

    Nubian Franklin

    This Doña Maria press really changed the tortilla game for me. You may think it’s a bit much for a press but this has such durability and longevity that doesn’t compare to any other press I’ve handled or that you will handle. The weight allows you to gauge the thickeness you desire and to press one time without the added labor as you do with its wooden or aluminum counterparts. If you press as much as I do those others tend to lose their effectiveness after the first hundred presses. I’ve made now thousands of tortillas with this press and the quality has yet to waiver. They say you have too grow a relationship with your press and this one has my heart. If Michelin had a guide for kitchen tools this would have ???????????? no question.

    I’m proudly displaying my new press in my kitchen because it’s worth it. No hiding it away in a pantry. I love the sturdy design as much as the sleek white colour. I like my torts on the thin side so I take about 3 turns & press out perfection. I usually make a dozen at a time too keep it freshly!!

    This Will Be The Last Tortilla Press That You Buy!

    scotty bones (verified owner)

    I have owned several tortilla presses over the last 30 years. The problem is always with the distribution of the downward force and the resulting inconsistency of shape and thickness. This press eliminates those issues completely. The strength of the steel and the precision of the movement assure longevity and accuracy. The enamel coating seems strong, but as with any enameled kitchenware, I would recommend handling and storing the press carefully to avoid chipping. Seventy five bucks is a very good value for this level of quality. If you can swing it, this press is worth it. If you can’t, save a few bucks a week and buy it when you can!

    A gamechanger

    Frank Lampen (verified owner)

    If you do one thing to improve your tortilla game then buy this. It just makes it easier to get to the desired level of thickness with the “spring” feel of the handle and the plate. Once I got used to the control it gave, it enabled me to fine tune my masa and my tortillas got so much better.

    I am cheap. I admired the press since it first came out. I finally got it. I love it. Not just to make tortillas but as a show piece on my kitchen shelf. I highly recommend it.

    Best Tortilla Press

    Luis Calva

    I’ve owned a lot of tortilla presses over the years, and this is by far the best ever. If you are familiar with tortilla presses, they do the job but are typically unsightly and flimsy. They are cheap and get the job done for a few years and then they break. This tortilla press is as beautiful as it is functional. It works great and I’m not embarrassed to use it in front of my guests. The weight makes pressing tortillas a lot easier and faster, especially when you need to make a large quantity for a crowd. This is one of my favorite tools in my kitchen.

    I don’t know why I was surprised as all of Masienda’s products are top notch, but my cast aluminum had been repaired and jury rigged to death. It was time for a new press… the Dona Rosa is the best! Solid and heavy duty – built to last. It makes the most perfect and most uniform thick tortillas! I also use it for tetelas and corn dough empanadas. No regrets about a tool that will last the rest of my life and still have life enough to hand down to my children like a valuable family heirloom.

    Upped my tortilla game

    Jay Ebersole (verified owner)

    I upgraded from a wood tortilla press. My previous press took four flips to get a uniform product. This press creates uniform tortillas with just 2 flips and the larger format offers an option for larger tortillas.

    Its True

    paul

    I took a chance on buying this because the promise was to up my tortilla game by leaps and bounds. I had already got the good corn, good lime, so the last bit is the press. This has a bounce to the metal board that gives it a super flat even result. I went from tasty home made tortillas to ones people confuse for professionally bought

    This tortilla press is a pleasure to use and much more efficient than smaller, lighter presses. Tortillas come out very consistent with minimal effort. It is very well constructed and should last a lifetime or two!

    Really happy I got this press. A major improvement to our tortillas.

    Eric Gallandt (verified owner)

    I’m a tortilla enthusiast, making small batches for our family every couple of weeks. For years I’ve used a small aluminum press, the kind you see at most Mexican food shops in the U.S. I’d try to make thinner or larger tortillas using a rolling pin after pressing, generally with poor results. Anyway, bought this on a whim, along with some instant masa and some Olotillo. I really couldn’t believe how beautiful the first tortilla was. And ever one after that. I really can’t explain why it is so great; it is, after all, seemingly just a dough-flattener, but the Doña Rosa turns out perfect tortillas. Highly recommended if you are into making your own. By the way, the instant masa is also excellent. Makes it tough to justify the nixtamalizing effort at times. I particularly like that it is authentic, and I hope the sales of this are helping out some metal workers and welders in Oaxaca.

    For The Love

    Scott Smith

    If you’re looking to enjoy the process of pressing every single tortilla you make for the next several decades, then do yourself a favor and go for it with the Doña Rosa Press. Yes, you could buy several of the generic cheap presses commonly available for the same price as one of these; that is probably fine if you are like SUPER into mediocrity. If you are cooking for the love of it then stop reading reviews and ‘add to cart’ because this press just does not compare.

    FWIW, I also use this press to make steamed buns and it is a champ!

    worth it

    melanie (verified owner)

    i make handmade flour tortillas and a rolling pin is fine for that. however, corn tortillas are another story. and while this may be pricey to some, like me, it is definitely worth it. not all press are created equal. an uneven press, or too thin/thick, results in an often uneven flavor and mouth feel. this one presses a perfect thickness for a corn tortilla. im def not a puff master, but honestly, i don’t care, they are delish!!! also, i really love supporting a team that cares about food, families, heritage, and culture. thank you for that masienda.

    Robin Bodak (verified owner)

    The quality of this tortilla press is excellent. The weight and construction is perfect for making tortillas of varying thickness & the clean up is minimal with the powder coated finish. I am a professional chef and use this in my kitchen, but it is also perfect for the home cook.
    Support Masienda they are bringing beautiful products and ingredients to us and supporting many links in an ever important chain.

    Gives Good Weight

    Hank Shaw

    The best press I’ve used, and I’ve used many. I like its weight, which will press a tortilla nicely with one pull, and it’s size, which allows me to press flour tortillas, too; my flour tortillas are normally larger than corn ones. Nice to be helping a Mexican small producer, too.

    This press, while more expensive than the kind you can get on Amazon, is elegant and works perfectly. My tortillas turn out terrific with Masienda’s corn flour — all I need now is to learn how to make mine puff properly as they refuse to do so. I am quite sure it is user error! Everything from this outfit is first rate.

    In an effort to reduce our single-plastic use and eat better corn tortillas, I decided to make our own. LIFE CHANGING. This press makes the process easy and consistent. We’ve even traveled with it… where everyone ends up wanting one of their own! Makes a wonderful gift along with a bag or two of masa.

    I love it!

    Dustin (verified owner)

    This is a great tortilla press. It seems well built, is made from heavy weight steel, and should last forever. It presses tortillas to an ideal thickness and doesn’t seem to require a lot of turning and repressing in order to get an even thickness across the entire tortilla. The only negative I can come up with is that the feet weren’t welded on perfectly straight and therefore the press wobbles a bit during use. However I’ve noticed that the press Masienda uses in their YouTube video has the same issue. It doesn’t really affect the function and sort of adds to the handmade charm a bit. Also be careful of the surface you use it on because it is jagged steel you’re dealing with, which could scratch some surfaces.

    Perfect Press for the Perfect Puff!

    Vickie Bixler

    I grew up in Southern California and although rare, homemade corn tortillas were available and simply amazing. Until you’ve had one, you really have no idea of what a corn tortilla should taste like. I’ve lived in Hawaii for several decades now, and the taste of those treats had become a distant memory. I even bought a tortilla press and tried a number of times to make them on my own. Then I stumbled onto Masienda. After watching Jorge’s videos and trying with limited but encouraging success to make tortillas again with my old press (because the Doña Rosa presses were out of stock), I decided to splurge a little and buy this press. This is a thing of beauty, a precision tool that presses the masa perfectly evenly. I love this press! Want the puff? Get the press!

      Hi Dan,

      Thanks for your questions! After extensive use the paint may begin to wear in the high touch areas where the handle puts pressure on the top portion of the press (as most things that experience continued heavy use do). The presses are finished with FDA-approved paint and completely safe to use with food; we have not experienced the paint coming off quickly. If you’re pressing hundreds of tortillas daily, you may notice faster wear in that one area.

      We do always recommend using a plastic liner, as this will be crucial for making sure the tortilla doesn’t stick to the surface of the press.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions, we’re happy to help
