A little bit of history: did you know that the rolling pin was invented by a carpenter who had a pastry chef as wife? To make the work with dough easier for her, her husband created a hardwood cylinder to help spread the dough. Then came several models.

We all know the famous beech wood rolling pin - already used in the days of our great grandmothers. There are still some, but many different materials have been introduced into the market and compete successfully.

In order to make delicious cookie dough, pizza dough or crunchy pie or quiche crust, it is important to choose the right rolling pin.

The wooden rolling pin:

Everyone knows it, indeed it is the traditional rolling pin found in almost every kitchens. AZ Boutique offers you beechwood pastry rolls with a refined look without handles. Rolling pins with handles are not particularly more effective than rollers without handles - it is preferred by some pastry chefs out of habit and for handling. The handle less rolling pin is a professional kitchen equipment rather used by bakers than amateur cooks. Wood is a material that is suitable for food contact and naturally antibacterial, which means that it does not absorb odours. The only concern you may have is that it is unfortunately not anti-adhesive: in other words, the rolling pin must be floured well before use to prevent the dough from sticking. The wooden material requires some maintenance. A little hot water and a little degreasing product and it’s done.

The stainless-steel rolling pin:

The stainless steel rolling pin is a very robust and a heavy enough kitchen material to smooth the dough well to be able to spread it correctly. Stainless steel is an easy to clean material and is dishwasher safe. The stainless-steel rolling pins we offer have a very modern and stylish look. However, like the wooden roller, it needs to be floured before use.

The polyethylene rolling pin:

The polyethylene rolling pin has characteristics like those of a silicone rolling pin. Just like food silicone, there is also food polyethylene dedicated to the manufacture of pastry or cooking utensils. This polyethylene roll can be used like any other roll made of various materials, but it is particularly effective for a specific task: it is recommended for puff pastry. It is a nonstick rolling pin. This type of utensils provides a constant temperature, an essential criterion to respect in order to prepare a good puff pastry.

Use the rolling pin properly: all about the art of handling this bakery/pastry utensil

Take your dough and place it on a non-stick surface. You can also use a silicone baking mats such as a normal baking sheet or a silicone baking mat to put your dough on. This helps to have an easy demoulding after smoothing your dough. In most kitchens, it is recommended to make a ball with the dough and then place the rolling pin in the centre. The rest is easy. Move back and forth using a regular force to get a perfect smoothing. Feel free to turn it over to smooth it on all sides. Once the dough is well spread, use the roller to wrap your dough around it and move it into cake pans, for example. Once the biscuits, cookies or the pie crust is done, use decorating icing sugar or if it is a pie, pour into your delicious fruit’s coolie or chocolate fondant.
