Marble Rolling Pins

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I think that wood rolling pins aren't quite OCD friendly enough for me. LOL! The kids held the rolling pin and rolled out gluten free playdough once while their hands were contaminated by touching another gluten source and now I won't let the thing touch my dough. Maybe I'm being overly paranoid, I don't know.

 

Anyway, I was thinking about getting a marble rolling pin so that I can actually wash the thing thoroughly if anybody touches it with gluteny hands. Does anybody have one of these? How do you like it?

Sometimes you have to make your own judgement calls.  I feel that MOST things can be washed well with soap and water. If I owned a roller, it would be marble as it would help keep the batter/dough cool as well as  easily washed.

 

Before your kids, or other kids delve into the gluten free play dough, ask that they wash their hands well (perhaps with supervision) so that the play dough can be used for another day. :)

I suppose that it was probably such a minute amount of gluten that possibly got on the rolling pin, that I probably could scrub it down and bleach it and it would be clean enough. It's not like I rolled out wheat pastry crust with it.

I have a marble one. Funny thing is, when I roll out gluten-free dough of any kind, I put plastic wrap on the top and bottom so it doesn't stick!

But.... I don't really see what is wrong with your wooden one? Your kids might have had a teeny bit of gluten on their hands when they used it ? Just wash it off! If any gluten got on it, it probably fell off the handles a along time ago.

Good, thanks for the input. My thoughts were that the kids handled the gluten free play dough with their contaminated hands and then rolled the contaminated playdough out with the rolling pin. I know now, not to allow the kids to use my rolling pin on play dough, because I still see tiny specks of color on my rolling pin. LOL.

 

But anyway, I washed it with bleach and soap and then threw it in the dishwasher. Hopefully that will be enough.

Funny you mention the plastic wrap, because lately I have been still using my rolling pin, but I typically roll out the dough between plastic wrap or waxed paper, so that the pin is not actually touching the dough.

I love mine. It is a bit heavier than a wooden one. I bought mine with a bracket that it rests in. I will never switch back to a wooden pin, because the marble gets the job done in less time. I hope you buy one.

Soap and water would be best and a dishwasher run if you think, but bleach is not needed. Bleach may kill some germs, but a good scrup would dislodge any gluten remaining.
