Tortilla press-D-TXM-2-18

High to Medium Volume Production at an Affordable Price.

The D-TXM-2-18 commercial manual dual-heat dough press is incredibly versatile. It can be used with dual-heat, upper heat only, or no heat – making it the perfect choice for all types of products. The D-TXM-2-18 is a press for medium to high volume production. Its heavy-duty stainless steel construction and cam over-lock make it the top manual press in the industry. The D-TXM-2-18 is a swing-away design with upper and lower heated platens.

The D-TXM-2-18 Dual Heated Platens speed up production, and that is where the real dough is! Operators are able to press thinner products faster and with consistency. Dough flow is important, and this unit allows dough to be pressed straight from refrigeration, keeping the dough from shrinking back.

The D-TXM-2-18 is an easy, affordable way to improve your production time as well as your finished product. It is great for both pizza and tortilla dough. The D-TXM-2-18 Variable Thickness Control makes it possible to achieve desired thickness and ensures consistent thickness at the same dough ball weight. The D-TXM-2-18 requires no skilled labor, unlike hand tossing. Our presses are safe and have no age requirements, unlike sheet/roller equipment. The D-TXM-2-18 is one of the easiest presses to use and operate. Prepare dough balls, set temp and thickness, center the dough ball on the lower platen, and press the dough. Pizza was never this productive!
