Would these work for fondant? Any suggestions if so?

I had saw some on Amazon and they looked like a decent solution to getting the fondant smooth and thin rather than using a rolling pin, but of course I have no real clue.

You bet! I use one all the time. Mine is the Makins brand and I got it at Hobby Lobby.

It makes rolling out fondant so much faster and easier! The only downside is, it's not big enough to roll out to cover a cake. (I think you need a "sheeter" for that?)

So what should I look for in one.

I'm seeing some on amazon for 20 to 40 bucks with good reviews, but all of the reviews are for clay or pasta. None on fondant.

I'm looking at ones that you would hand roll of course. No business or anything, but I would be interested in making things easier when I do them, especially if it is cheap.

Thanks for the replies so far.

I use one like this, though mine is slightly larger and has another roller attached for making thin and thick strips as well as the wide/flat:

Downside is that its only about 6" wide and rolls no thicker than 1/8" but it's great for small stuff.
