My mom wasn't too amused . . . .
Won ton skins aren't really that big a deal in the pasta department, if you know what you're doing--which I didn't--big time!
I also broke a cast-iron tortilla press on the same futile venture. The dual experience has made me swear off even low-tech aids to manually rolling out Chinese pasta doughs. Either I buy the stuff pre-made, or I work it and roll it out entirely by hand, using a simple long dowel as the rolling pin.
