Does anyone have this rolling pin? What do you think of it? Is is worth the gigantic price tag of $139?!

Just went to the site, it looks awfully heavy 8O I think I would look into a commercial Thorpe or Moline rolling pin for a cheaper option.

It would be interesting to hear from someone who has one why they think it is better.  Could be like the difference between using a knife and an Agbay.

I have worked with a weighted rolling pin, wooden and aluminum. They make light work of any dough, I guess it all depends on what you like. With regular pins you have to put your back into it as with a weighted one the weight transfers to your wrists. It might be bothersome if you do it repetitively. If you only do a few cakes a week, want a sheeter like quality to your fondant and don't mind the high price tag then I say go for it.

I have the Caketrick and I really love it!  It works really well with the mat too.  It is unusually heavy, but it will turn a huge globe of fondant nice and thin and smooth in no time flat.  The ends are beveled so that it doesn't leave any marks in the fondant as you roll.

 

I'll admit that I don't get it out for small jobs, but for the big stuff it's a lifesaver!

Yes exactly what she said. Love mine for big jobs and does not leave any lines. I dont know how to not get lines on large jobs if you dont have this. One question for those who have it, have your handles gotten loose and how do you fix that? Cuppadee?

I have not had any problems with my handles.  Just contact the company, I'm sure they would be glad to help.
