I've made fried wontons a million times by hand, and this little guy made the task so much simpler. Lay the wonton/gyoza wrapper over the machine, push the filling into the center impression, fold up the sides, press, and you're done! I didn't even have to use the cutter because the crimper is sharp enough to cut off any excess dough.
Tip #1: Don't squeeze too hard when crimping otherwise instead of cutting at the edge of the dumpling, it cuts at the crimp-line and doesn't seal properly. Just squeeze until you feel a little pop, and you're good to go.
Tip #2: Don't over-fill your dumplings, it only holds about a teaspoon or two of filling. They're dumplings after all, not calzones.
Tip #3: Deep fry the extra gyoza wrapper that the machine cuts off when crimping and coat with cinnamon sugar...SO Yummy
I just purchased this product yesterday and tonight I gave it a try. I was making chinese dumplings (or pot-stickers) for dinner. I was using the store-bought wonton wrappers and cut them with the cutter on this devise. The cutter wasn't terrible, but the edges were dull and didn't cut through the wonton wrapper as easily as it should have. I then placed it on the press, added my filling and squeezed it to form the dumpling. First of all (and most importantly), the dumpling maker only holds about a teaspoon of filling (not tablespoon, TEASPOON). The press also does not do a good job of sealing the halves together. After about 12, I ended up making the rest by hand. I'm going to try to return it this week. Not even worth $10
