If you’re looking for a rolling pin to do some baking, consider getting one that’s made of marble. Not only is it very chic and stylish, but there is actually a practical reason why some people use marble. When you’re baking pastry, you need to keep the dough cold. A lot of people will actually put the dough back in the freezer a few times if they’re making puff pastry, because the heat from your hands is enough to make it too warm. Marble maintains a cool temperature better than wood, so it helps keep dough cool for a longer period of time.
Aside from the practical element of this rolling pin, it is really pretty. Even if you don’t bake a lot, it can be a really beautiful addition to your kitchen accessories, especially if you already have marble countertops. On the flip side, it can be a great way to incorporate marble into your kitchen if you don’t have any at all. For example, in my home, we have wood block countertops. But we have a marble rolling pin and cutting board, which adds just enough luxury into the space.
