I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not as there were no directions that came with this product. Reading other reviews from other sites, I used parchment paper on both plates and put the ball of dough almost to the top edge of the press. It really didn't press the dough that much, nowhere close to the edge of the press. I ended up taking out my trusty rolling pin and finishing my tortillas that way. I guess I should have done that in the first place. Oh well, live and learn.

Great product!!
This is a great product to use not only for tortillas but also to smash green plantains to then fry them!!! also is great to make "arepas" which is another form of tortilla made with white corn meal that they sale at the supermarket. It works perfect!!! maybe this person doesn't know how to use it.

Better Technique for Tortilla Press
I have one that I use for making wonton and kuo teh (pot sticker) skins. You make two at a time. Three pieces of wax or parchment paper are needed. Two balls of dough, one on top of the other are on top of a piece of paper, separated by a piece of paper, with a third piece of paper on top before the press is used to squeeze on it. This technique may be helpful if your tortillas aren't thin enough.
