  • Dual Heated Platens 

    • Initial grill off for tortillas (fully grilling on press not recommended)
    • Speeds up production (faster pressing times)
    • Enables pressing thinner products
    • Aids dough flow
    • Allows dough to be pressed straight from refrigeration unit
    Variable Thickness Control 

    • Makes it possible to achieve desired thickness and ensures consistent thickness at the same dough ball weight.

    • 16”x20” platen allows for making variable tortilla sizes and thicknesses up to 16 inches in diameter. The size of the tortilla is determined by the weight of the dough ball and the thickness setting.
    • Depends on the desired size of the tortilla…
      9” to 16” = 75-100/hr.
      7” to 9” = 150-200/hr.
      6” or under = 300-400/hr.
    Pressing Tips 


    • Recommended Time:
      1-3 seconds
    • Recommended Temperature:

    • Presses require no skilled labor, unlike hand tossing
    • Presses are safe and have no age requirements, unlike sheeters/rollers

    • TXM-20 is easy to use. Prepare dough balls, set temp/thickness, place dough ball in center of lower platen, and press the dough.
    Finished Product 

    • Pressed dough is consistent in thickness and size, unlike hand prepared where the thickness and size can be inconsistent.
    • For best results, we recommend initial grill off of tortillas on dual-heated press and finish on DoughXpress Tortilla Warmer (TXW-1620, TXW-2025 or TXW-2540).
