Has anyone thought of using a sheeter to help roll out your Fondant instead of rolling it all out by hand?

We used one at pink cake box (I was an intern there) for everything... fondant, cookie dough... it's awesome... the model she uses, i understand, cost about $6k... but I DO plan on getting one someday... someday lol

It's a bakery machine used for dough. You take your dough put it in the sheeter and it will come all rolled out to the thickness you want like rolled out pizza dough. It works sort of like an old ringer washing machine. I bought one about a year
or so ago but have not set it up to use it permanently in my bakery. I got mine used on Ebay shipped to my house for 900.00.

PinkZiab could you tell me the largest width the sheeter you used at pink cake box would get. The one I have says it will roll out to a max of 22"-24" wide.

You know how much time you can spend coloring and then rolling out large pieces of fondant. I'm looking for shortcuts and muscle saving.

Thanks!

Same concept on a much larger scale...up to 30" I think.
