I'm not sure where the best place to put this is but here it goes


I want a new one and wanted to see which type and length is popular on CC




Rolling pin








Stainless steel








If you use multiple types please share their material, uses and length.

I use a 19.5 inch wooden french rolling pin (like your first one).  It has a good weight and I love it.


I also have a 19.5 silpin (silicone french rolling pin) but I got it after my wood one and I have not really used it because I love my wood one and the wood one is weightier.


I used a marble one with ball bearings in the handles for year until it got a chip in it but I like my wood one heaps better.


I do, however use 'The Mat' nowadays so I don't have to worry about things sticking to it.

AI have 3 wooden pins, a shorter but heavy one with handles (use it mostly), a very long one for huge fondant stuff/ cakes (also with handles) and one with plates on the side to get equal hight, but haven't used it yet as I just got it a couple of days ago...

My rolling pins each have a set purpose. But for all around functionality, the silver/black on the right is a good multi-purpose pin. It's lightweight and easy to clean. The glass pin is filled with ice when the kitchen is too hot. The large wooden one is heavy and works best for croissant and Danish doughs. The small wooden pin is the perfect size for my grandaughter.



I also use this one-handed rolling pin when my hands don't like to cooperate.
