This wieldy little pin is was originally designed for rolling our dumpling wrappers, but works great for pies tiny and large, rolled fondant, pastries and sugar cookies. Durable enough for use in a professional kitchen, yet delicate enough for making the daintiest pastry, the Chinese rolling pin offers a level of precision and control that classic handled rolling pins don’t.

The Chinese rolling pin is made from kiln-dried maple wood, grown and milled not ten miles from the Winona Lake, Indiana, factory where the pins are made.

Because it’s so light and workable, you can maneuver the pin in short downward strokes with one hand, while gently turning your dough with the other to insure a perfectly flat dough.

This wood is kiln-dried, so the surface won’t warp or crack over time. The sugar maple used for this rolling pin is the same one we get maple syrup from, and it’s also known as hard maple — for good reason. This is the bowling pins, pool cues, baseball bats and butcher blocks are made of, so you can be sure this rolling pin can take a beating.

Use & Care

A cold, lightly floured rolling pin works best, so before preparing the dough, sprinkle the pin with a little flour and put it in the freezer for ten minutes. 

You shouldn't use the pin to pound nuts or seeds -- this could nick the wood.

Only hand wash the Chinese rolling pin: a good rule of thumb is to never put woodenware in the dishwasher, it can cause the wood to decay and warp over time.

After the first few uses and washes, lightly buff the pin with a piece of sandpaper.

Rub the pin with a little mineral oil once in a while to keep the wood looking beautiful and content. 

Production & Design

All the cutting and sanding of this pin is done by hand. After 17 hand operations, the pins are polished with a natural mineral oil, which seeps deep into the wood making it smoother and more durable.

The company that makes this pin started out in 1978 with just a homemade band saw, an antique wood lathe, and a desire to make wooden utensils that didn't snap in one's hand. The hobby turned into a company, and from 1984 onwards they've been making woodenware in Winona Lake, Indiana.
