Read the BBC Good Food review of top marble rolling pins. Marble is better than wood for temperature control – essential when making pastry.
This had the shortest rolling surface of all the pins so more effort would be needed for bigger pastry jobs. However, it had a really smooth movement and was the most reasonable of all the pins.

This handmade rolling pin has a beautiful high polish finish with lovely rounded ends. With its matching stand, it’s beautiful to look at as well as to use.

Best lightweight pin
The lightest of all the pins, this is suitable for use with more delicate pastry. It also has rounded ends that prevent marks being left in the soft dough. It comes with a 20-year guarantee and is dishwasher-safe so it’s a good investment for your kitchen kit.
RRP £19.99, from Kitchen Craft, available nationwide
What Kimberley looked for…
Rounded ends: So there are no marks left in the pastry.
A stand: For easy storage.
Affordability: Marble products can get very expensive due to material costs.
Smooth movement: A easy to hold pin that moves across surfaces smoothly.
