Editor's Notes

May 15, 2020:

Baking can be an art form, so having the best baking utensils is similar to having the best paintbrushes. A rolling pin is just one of the many baking tools you need. In choosing the best wooden options, we did not just linger on the price; instead, we focused on quality, craftsmanship, and ease of use.

The Good Cook Classic is a traditional choice with no bells and whistles; it is sturdily made, and it does exactly what it is designed to do - rolls out the dough. The Joseph Joseph 20085 is a similar option; however, it has a popular feature of removable rings, which help ensure that the dough is evenly rolled each and every time.

The Totally Bamboo Pin is an eco-friendly option that is visually beautiful and has a single-piece construction that many bakers prefer. For a more fun option, the Fabquality Paisley is embossed with a pattern that transfers onto your dough, creating beautiful pastries, crusts, and other baked goods. When choosing your wooden pin, do not forget to select a baking mat that not only provides you with a place to roll your dough, but also makes cleanup faster.
