Looking to take your homemade Mexican dinners to the next level? It's time to invest in a tortilla press. According to Mexican-American chef and creator of the blog Lola's Cocina, Lola Wiarco Dweck, it's the key to getting flat, even tortillas at home. "I use a tortilla press quite often," she says. "It allows me to make perfectly round corn tortillas as well as some of the sweet toppings for some of my Mexican baked breads. A tortilla press offers precision in terms of shape and thickness that I have yet to perfect with a rolling pin."

Tortilla presses are wireless and heatless, and usually made from cast iron or wood. Check out Lola's favorite tortilla press, plus a few more that the internet loves. And while you're at it, take a peek at our recipes for homemade tortillas, quesadillas, empanadas, burritos, and all of the other fun foods you can make with your new tortilla press.

Best Overall Torilla Press
Doña Rosa x Masienda Tortilla Press
Doña Rosa

Lola's favorite press came from a market in Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico—this the closet thing you can find in the United States to it. For a long time, Doña Rosa only sold these heavy-duty presses in Oaxaca's Central de Abastos. Now, luckily, Masienda sells these authentic, handcrafted tortilla presses online.

If you're new to making your tortillas, this simple-to-use (and easy-to-clean) tortilla press is a good place to start. Try following Lola's simple recipe. "Typically I cut two pieces of a plastic produce bag," the chef explains. "I place my dough ball on one, which is on the bottom part of the tortilla press, then I cover it with the other piece of plastic. This prevents the tortilla from sticking to the actual press. Then after pressing the ball into a flat, round tortilla, I carefully peel off my tortilla from the plastic before cooking it on a comal."
