The French rolling pin is a slender rod with tapered edges instead of handles. It a the more rustic approach to flattening dough and a little more attractive than it’s Plain Jane classic rolling pin counterpart. 

Besides being sleeker in design, the lack of handles works to the advantage of the baker — you get more of a feel for the dough, making everything more precise and the desired thickness more consistent. And if you’re using a can of soup to roll out dough, it might be time for an upgrade.

Because you’re not applying pressure to the handles, you’re pushing on the whole pin, so rolling out the dough will be more even across the pin. It’s lightweight and easy to maneuver, so you can effortlessly roll the flattened dough onto the pin and ease it into the baking pan.

The French 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. After 17 hand operations — all the cutting and sanding is done by hand — the pins are polished with a natural mineral oil, which seeps deep into the wood making it smoother and more durable. 

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. 

Only hand wash the French 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

John Whetstone made his first wooden spoon in 1978 for his wife, Debbie, after one too many wooden spoons broke in her hands and, subsequently, their food. He made the first spoon out of only a homemade band saw and an antique wood lathe. The hobby turned into a company, and from 1984 onwards Whetstone been making woodenware from Winona Lake, Indiana.
