Corn tortillas--is a tortilla press essential?

The Dairy Queen | Dec 31, 2007 11:05 AM

So, I've been thinking about making corn tortillas at home so I can cut out some of the yummy lard (for health/diet reasons, alas), but, also, I just think fresh and homemde in this case will certainly be better than this cardboardish ones in the market.

I see that Amazon has some post-Christmas specials buy four items (not the same item, just four items from their "list") and get one free and a tortilla press is one of the things on the list. Should I jump at this chance?

Frankly, I hate the idea of another single purpose appliance in my kitchen. How badly do I need one of these things? I've seen people say you can press them between two plates and roll them out with a rolling pin. Giant hassle?
