3. My dough is sticking when I use the press. Do I have to use a food release spray?

Yes. To get the most out of the press, a food release spray is recommended to either be coated on each dough ball or to be applied each time you press out dough. The dough needs to have oil on the bottom and top of the doughball. You can also use a brush on method. Olive oil, canola oil and vegetable oil all work great on the press.

4. When I press out dough, my dough snaps back. How do I fix this?

When your dough snaps back, it is typically caused by several factors. Your dough maybe to cold prior to pressing. Letting it get closer to room temp will resolve this problem.
