    Classic French Rolling Pin

    French pins are a cylinder, fashioned from a single piece of lightweight hardwood, so they’re more slender and lighter than a ball-bearing pin. Since your hands are directly on the rolling surface, it can give you a better feel for the dough and more control over the pressure you apply.

    Marble Ball-Bearing Rolling Pin

    Ball-bearing pins, on the other hand, are excellent for rolling out yeasted doughs such as for bread or croissants. The ball-bearing handles give you more mechanical advantage against the resilient dough, and a heavy wood or marble, ups your muscle transfer even further.

    Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin

    Rolling pin rings are a handy way to ensure your roll your dough to even thickness. This beech wood French-style pin from Joseph Joseph takes the concept one step further with varying sizes of “rings” integrated into the pin itself. Just unscrew the end caps to adjust to the size you need. They all store together so nothing gets lost.

Few gadgets can beat the simplicity, economy, and effectiveness of this old-fashioned duo. To use, just rub flour into the canvas cloth and the stretchy rolling pin sleeve and you’re ready to go. The fabric absorbs excess flour and prevents dough from sticking.
