A rolling pin is a long, cylindrical device used to flatten dough for pie crusts, cookies, pastries and other treats. There are many different varieties on the market, in a number of sizes and materials. The most common types of rolling pins are those made of hardwood, but at Foodservice Superstore we also have them in plastic and aluminum. Thanks to a thin handle on either side of the rolling pin, your chef's hands won't have to touch the dough underneath. We offer rolling pins from top manufacturers like American Metalcraft, Matfer Bourgeat, Thunder Group, Browne Halco, and many others. We have small rolling pins for rolling dough for individual baked goods that are 5-1/2" wide. We have a range of sizes from 13" to 20" for larger jobs. No matter what your needs, you'll find the perfect rolling pin here at great wholesale prices!
A solid, heavy wooden rolling pin is usually preferred over a lighter rolling pin as it is easier to flatten dough with. The tool should glide easily over the dough and flatten it without a lot of straining and pushing. The handles should fit comfortably in the hands and move freely while the cook rolls the dough. Many chefs use a rolling pin for tasks other than rolling dough. If they want to crush crackers, cookies or nuts, they place the food in a paper bag and beat it with the rolling pin until it's completely crushed. It can also work in the same manner as a meat tenderizer, acting as a hammer to pound thin cuts of meat such as cutlets. At Foodservice Superstore, we have rolling pins that feel comfortable in your hands and will be an indispensable tool for any home or commercial kitchen.
