Tortilla press: Unitasker or necessity?

I was reading the new Bon Appetit, and they have some very tasty looking taco recipes (which, I do realize, do NOT require homemade tortillas).

I am tempted to make my own tortillas and I have no problem rolling things out by hand. I do get that the press makes the process much quicker, but do I NEED one?

Like many people, my storage space is at a premium, so I don't want to get a new gadget all willy-nilly and use it only once or twice a year (I'm looking at you, ravioli rolling pin!).

I'm trying to think what else I might use it for, and am coming up short with ideas.

Suggestions?
