We are looking at buying a Sil-Pin rollig pin .... does anyone have one? Do you like it? We are considering either the Baker's Style like this one:

or the Traditional w/handles

I have never used a bakers style pin ... is it hard to use with fondant? I would think that without handles it would be hard to get good pressure to roll out something thick/heavy. I have a marble rolling pin w/wood handles that just keeps sticking no matter how much cornstarch or sugar we put on the fondant.

Any opinions or recommendations? Thank you!

i just got one over a month ago, it's a non stick 12 inch OXO rolling pin with handles and has a good weight....i've been using it and i like it!
here's a link to OXO website http://www.oxo.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=298, but i got mine at The Bay department store

Wilton has a new pin that just came out. It's large , plastic and has some weight to it. It doesn't have handles but with the weight, it's better not to have handles, knuckles don't get in the way! It works really well with fondant.

Thanks for your replies! I think we will give the Wilton one a try ... it is a little bit less $$ than the Sil-Pin.
