    Good morning,

    I have just recently inherited a large dough sheeter. I was wondering if anybody has ever used something like this with tortilla doughs. If so, any advice or hints?

    Thanks in advance,

    Al

    I've only used one of those little hand presses for corn but I've seen tons of people use those machines for flour tortillas. They come out kind of fat but they're always really nice and fluffy. You can pre press them and keep them with parchment seperating them using flour or spray veg. Oil to keep from sticking. You pretty much have to only cook them to order because they're so thick they don't keep so well once heated.
