Depending on your local health codes, but...

The maple jobs with ball bearings are the best. Next best would be the marble jobs, you might be able to add in the ball bearings if you can find a machine shop that has them.

You would have to keep a wood rolling pin separate from any possibility of it being used on cookie dough or other raw food. The maple pins do NOT leave texture if you care for it properly--meaning that you never wash or wet it.

After you roll fondant, let the wood dry. Then scrub with a dry scrubber until it is perfectly clean.

You can add the occasional rub with rubbing alcohol of the kind that says 70% isopropanol on the label. Use that on paper towels, and then dry off with more paper towels.

I have a marble pin with ball bearings and it is the best. It's lasted 15 years so far even after a lot of abuse.
