The French rolling pin is a useful tool in the kitchen for bakers, especially those who like to
concoct pastries, roll out sugar cookies, or make shaped breads and rolls. The standard pin is
usually 2 inches (5.08 cm) or less in diameter; 13 inches (33.02 cm) tends to be the most
popular length. What makes it different from other rolling pins is that it has no handles, and
is tapered at each end. It’s essentially a round, usually wooden, stick of a certain thickness.
Many people who bake regularly say they prefer the French rolling pin to other types because you
get a “feel” for the dough better with one. The weight you place on the pin is not changed by
the fact that you’re touching rollers or handles. This can correspond to greater precision in
rolling out pastry or other types of dough.
Others like the easy care of the French rolling pin. Once you’ve used it, you merely give it a
quick wash with a little bit of soap and water.
Since durability can be an issue if the rolling pin is not properly cared for, there are some
plastic, silicone, and marble pins made in the French rolling pin style.
There are a few things you should not use the French rolling pin for. Many recipes will direct
you to use rolling pins to crush nuts or seeds, either by beating them with the pin or
repeatedly rolling the pin over them. This can cause the wood to become pockmarked, and make it
much easier for dough to stick the pin as a result.
It’s unclear why this rolling pin is considered French. There’s little history on when or
where the pin was designed. It is certainly the case that many French chefs prefer these pins.
Cooks who like them cite not only “feel” of the dough being better, but also the relative ease
with which these rolling pins can be manipulated.
