While this perfectly rendered wee children's rolling pin is indeed ideal for little sous chefs "helping" papa roll out cookie dough in the kitchen, its raw beechwood roller, metal axle, and subtly oiled pin handles are sturdy and made with the same care and attention to detail as its full-sized counterpoint. Consequently, we often find ourself "borrowing" this from the little ones for smaller tasks (like pasta dough or individual pizzas) or gifting one to our friends whose large-scale baking dreams exceed the counter space and storage capacity of their small-scale apartment kitchens. Let's roll.
Take Care: Raw wood is ideal for gaining purchase on dough, but can absorb water when submerged. So whether you're making mudpies or tiny tarte tatins wash with warm water and towel dry immediately. Applying the food-safe wood conditioner of your choosing (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry) does wonders to extend the life of this little friend.
