Yes, still going strong and i love it.  :)     (Different brand, but identical.)


My chapati maker has stolen the top spot on my kitchen worktop for a while now.

DP,

Which made do you own and is it really as easy to use as the videos make it look.

Cant be certain as mine is still down in Wales, but i think its made by Lifeline.
Had some teething problems at the beginning with balls of dough flying out as soon as you try and press them. (Imagine trying to press between two air hockey tables!  :D )
But once i adjusted my dough to be slightly wetter and pressed flat into small discs before placing on the hotplate, everything went fine.
Its a lovely sight to see them puffing up, lifting the top and sliding out towards the handle.  :)
It also comes in handy for pressing out to be cooked on a tawa. Saves all the rolling and mess from the extra flour used.

Cheers, Frank.

Thanks Frank,

I'll look on Ebay for one as they don't seem to be available in shops as far as I can see.

Mine was from India via ebay for about 30 quid.

A couple of things to be aware of. (but might not apply with a larger company like Maggi, better QC?)

The 2 wires inside coming from the power socket were so thin that one burnt out after a couple of weeks. I replaced them with some thicker wire and its been fine ever since.
Also, i thought that the square tube that holds the handle felt a bit flimsy. And me being a bit heavy handed, didnt want to snap it by pressing too hard, so i strengthened that by slipping a square rod inside.

Best value I can find is this one, from a seller with a >97% feedback rating.  Caveat emptor, none of that feedback is for the roti maker.

Apart from having a hot plate, they're similar to a taco/tortilla press. A quick google brought this up in Wembley although not massive at 16cm.
