I think that it is the twin hot plates (one upper, one lower) that is the real benefit of this device -- no need to turn the roti to cook it, just allow it to cook and rise on the lower plate, then briefly touch it with the hot upper plate to complete the expansion.

Its magical to watch Phil and I do want one but storage is becoming the big issue and I've got to lay low on the cooking stuff. Overspent last year ;D

Get rid of the Aga; that will free up loads of space :)

I've decided I need one of these, but do I buy a cheap 30 odd pound one or pay nearly 60 pound for a Prestige, I've been drinking tonight so will have another look in the morning.

I have one and like some other members. I also had teething problems with mine...mainly , i found it difficult to stop the dough from shooting out from between the hot plates or if I pressed the handle down too hard the dough would tear...with  trial and error they do puff up wonderfully and it's quicker....

To be honest, I've had mine for about 6 months and only used it about 3 times.I just got fed up with the 'teething' problems each time I used it..And if you mess up those hot plates are HOT! 
I'm not ready to give up so i will try leaving my dough a little stickier as suggested by DalPuri and let you know if helps....

Lol, I'd forgotten about that DalPuri..... yes they do squeal!

London, mine is a Jumbo roti maker made by Jaipan. I bought it at an Indian grocery store in Savannah,Georgia for 50 dollars.
