A good rolling pin is an essential for all bakers, and upgrading from wood or plastic to buy a marble rolling pin will take your pastry skills to a whole new level.

Heat is pastry's enemy, so using a cold rolling pin will help you achieve the best results. This is where marble, with its temperature-sensitive characteristics, comes in.

If you chill a marble rolling pin in the fridge before smoothing it over homemade pastry, the butter is less likely to melt, meaning notoriously tricky, technical processes, like making puff pastry, can be made easier.

Marble is a heavy material, so these pins carry some heft. However, the material is very resiliant, so should have good longevity.
