I have a 20" Wilton rolling pin. While I like the size and style it is pretty nicked up and now can be seen when I roll fondant. I have no idea what I want to get. I have seen the stainless steel and wooden that I like but not really sure. Can anyone suggest to me what they use?
You might want to try pvc pipe, it's cheap and you can have it cut to what ever lengt you need.
I think I have the same problem as you - is it the yellow silicone rolling pin? I have nicks as well so I go over the fondant with a fondant smoother after I've rolled it out. I know it's an extra step but it only takes a minute and it does make a difference. Maybe you could try that until you find what you're looking for.
I have a sil-pin that I love. I also have the big white Wilton rolling pin but it's just not as comfortable to work with. Sil-pin comes in that style too...the one I have is the regular shape with the handles and the ball bearings, but I saw one shaped like the wilton pin but made by sil-pin on the Target website.
I'm also a fan of PVC pipe. I usually buy a long 1" thick piece and keep it in the broom closet. When I need a new piece or want a different length, I just go get it out and cut off whatever I need with PVC cutters. MUCH cheaper than the Wilton pin.
I always use a large heavy duty wooden rolling pin with ball-bearing handles
It is heavy enough to ASSIST with your rolling and long enough that you dont get uneveness from a short barrel- I've tried to convince a friend to get one for a long time now - she went and did a Planet Cake course and got to USE the rolling pin. It was like a MAJOR .. a-ha moment for her!! She rang me to tell me the first thing going in her bin was her Wilton Rolling Pin
hellllooooooooooooooooooo Nicole !!!
I like to use my aluminum rolling pin (or is it stainless?). It's so much easier than than the 20" Wilton.
I just use a big old wooden rolling pin, good for fondant and whacking things.
