What’s the deal with all these crazy rolling pins?
If you haven’t heard, I’m attached to CHOOCHOO-ca-CHEW, and she got a little upset at the local rolling pin collection when we moved to the States!
A simple wooden rod makes the most convenient, easy to use rolling pin. No holes for dough to get stuck, no moving parts, it’s not too big and bulky. Just keeping it simple.
These rolling pins are made from durable wood with bees wax and oil soaked into the grain. The bees wax and oil will wear off eventually, so they will need a little care adding more oil in the beginning of its life. Just wipe on some kitchen oil or mineral oil (aka butcher block oil) before putting it away. Over time, enough oil soaks in and the wood will feel indestructible.
Please, don’t ever put any wood items in the dish washer! And don’t soak them in water. I think of it like a cast iron pan: super durable, but less soap and water is better. And keep it oiled.
I’ve recently heard mineral oil is bad for the fishes. ☹ I use cooking oil for just about everything, including sharpening my knives. Let’s keep it natural and be nice to the fishes.
