NEW - Tortilla Press


NEW - Tortilla Press


The original prototype for this tortilla press was conceived in London by German designer Max Frommeld on the afternoon of a Mexican-themed dinner when no aluminum press could be sourced in town. Frommeld's design proved extremely functional, but also possessed a minimalist, Bauhaus-inflected aesthetic that drew it apart from other similar tools. Made in California, the press features walnut wood, melamine-faced Baltic Birch plywood, and brass fixtures: a beautiful piece to keep on display. Use with dry or fresh corn masa to make quick, delicious fresh tortillas at home. Note: We recommend lining the press with a fresh length of parchment, wax paper or plastic wrap when using to prevent the tortillas from sticking.

Designed by London-based, German designer Max Frommeld.
