HOW TO USE YOUR CHEF PRO™ FLATBREAD / TORTILLA MAKER
Follow the “Press & Release” Method
Important: The secret to making flatbreads on your machine is to gently & gradually flatten the dough. The moisture & steam in the dough must be allowed to gradually escape as the tortilla or any flat bread is formed. It is a process of giving the dough multiple “presses & releases”. If you press the dough too hard all at once, the steam can break apart the flat-bread. As you release, you can see the steam escaping.
Allow the steam to escape. Follow the following steps for best results.
Preheat with the grids in the open position only. To preheat, plug unit in, indicator light will go on.
Set the temperature to desired level, normally high. After about 8-10 minutes indicator light will
go OFF. You are then ready to begin.
Note: While you are baking the indicator light will continue to periodically go on and off. This
means only that ideal baking temperature is being maintained, and is not indicating when to start
or stop baking. DO NOT LEAVE UNIT CLOSED WHILE PREHEATING.
2. PLACE DOUGH PATTIE
Shape the dough into balls about 2 inches in diameter. Pat between hands to flatten slightly into a
patty. Place dough patty on bottom grid, just rear of center.
3. PRESS & RELEASE
Use small ear handles to gently press dough, gradually flattening the dough patty. If dough slides
forward, use a spatula to keep dough in place as you press down. As you press, raise the lid to
release escaping steam. Gently “press & release” several times. Each press should only be less
than a second. Do not “press & hold”. Do not press continuously. This will prevent steam from
escaping, causing the flatbread to split & break.
4. ROTATE DOUGH
Quickly raise lid, rotate partially flattened dough about 1/2 of a circle.
5. PRESS & RELEASE AGAIN
Again use small ear handles to gently “press & release” several more times, further flattening
the dough patty.
EXCEPTION FOR CORN TORTILLAS
Do not use the “press & release” method. Press the cornmeal dough patty ONLY ONCE, then
open the lid to bake.
6. ROTATE DOUGH AGAIN
Quickly raise lid and partially rotate the dough another 1/2 of a circle
7. USE TOP HANDLE
Now the top lid is far enough down that you can begin using the top handle to get the tortilla to it’s
final thinness. Do not press the top handle hard and all at once. If pressed too hard, steam will
become trapped in the dough and can “blow apart” the flatbread. Again, just gently “press &
release” the top handle several times until you are to the final thinness.
Now brown to your desired color & texture. You may bake in the open position, or lightly lower
the lid and bake in the closed position for faster results. Do not lower or press top handle while
9. BAKE OTHER SIDE
Flip flatbread over and let the other side brown further. Any utensils used should be nonmetallic
only, to protect the non-stick surface.
When finished baking, unplug cord from outlet and leave grids open to cool.
TOO MUCH SPLITTING?
PRESS GENTLY & REPEATEDLY LET STEAM ESCAPE!
Don’t press hard all at once. If the top handle is pressed too hard, steam will become trapped in the dough
and can “blow apart” the flat-bread. Just gently “press & release” the top handle several times until you are
to the final thinness.
FIRST USING YOUR CHEF PRO™ FLATBREAD MAKER
When your flatbread maker is new, you may notice some slight smoking or odor.
This is normal with many new heating appliances and will not recur. This does not affect the safety of your
appliance. Also it is recommended that you discard the first two flatbreads from your new baker. When
using your Chef Pro™ baker for the first time, wipe the cooking grids with a damp cloth and dry with an
absorbent paper towel. It is normal for a new iron to smoke for a short while the first time it is heated.
Discard the first two flatbreads you make on the new grids.
