French Rolling Pin

The French rolling pin is a very useful tool for bakers for rolling out pastries, pie crust and more. What makes it different from other rolling pins is that it has no handles and that it is tapered to a small circumference at each end. Size can vary between 12 to 22 inches and 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Most are made out of wood and are easy to care for by merely washing briefly with a little soap and water. Please note that they should NOT BE PUT IN A DISHWASHER. Many people prefer the French rolling pin because you can “feel” the dough better, but also the relative ease with which these rolling pins can manipulated.

Here are some that I have made and sold on Etsy.
