I'm looking to start making some doughy products and I'm not sure if I should invest in a tortilla press or just use a rolling pin?
I'm going to make dumplings for now, and since they are smaller, I'm not sure if the larger rolling pin I found would work well?
It was recommended to use a 12" dowel, and this was the most similar in size and diameter.
The next option was a tortilla press, but most of the presses I see seem to be junk, not cast iron, and be painted/flake.
I was looking at this press http://www.webstaurantstore.com/7-1-2-cast-iron-tortilla-press/407TORT75.html
Which seems to have great reviews, but a couple mentions of loose screw, and one mention of break (claimed he misused it though).
I'm curious what people think? The press seems super easy though.
