Hi! I use a rolling pin for both cookie & pie dough, use it ALL the time. I love the marble rolling pin w/ handles, but I go through 1 a year. Any suggestions on rolling pins? What do others use?
Thanks!

PVC pipe, it's cheap and light and you can cut it to what ever length you need. Or the Wilton rolling pin, sorry I had to plug it since I'm an WMI icon_lol.gif

I see a lot of people using those HUGE stainless steel ones, but they are $$$!!!

I use pvc pipe, there are no handles though so if you're one that likes to use handles you wouldn't like it. But they're cheap and last forever and you can get any size you'd like!

I've had mine for years. It's called a Silpin. It's silicon coated (no handles) and is quite heavy. I use it to roll out any type of dough.

When you say pvc pipe, you just cut a piece of pipe & sand down the edges?

I have the same thing and I love it. It is a little heavier than the average rolling pin so you don't need to put as much muscle into rolling out fondant, cookie dough, pie dough...etc.

I don't even sand anything, just cut the length you want and then I soak it in a sanitizing solution for an hr. or so and then run it through the dishwasher!
