A rolling pin is such a simple tool that we wondered if there could be much difference among models, but after nearly 20 hours of research and a dozen conversations with bakers and cooks—both professional and amateur—we learned that small variations matter. When we tested 12 carefully selected rolling pins (out of nearly 30 we considered) on three types of dough, the timeless maple 23-inch Whetstone Woodenware French Rolling Pin proved to be a superior tool and a great value. It’s more agile than a handled pin, doesn’t stick to the dough as much as cheaper models, has just enough heft to do some of the work for you without smashing fragile dough, and is one of the easiest to clean.

Whetstone Woodenware French Rolling Pin, the best pin for most bakers

Whetstone Woodenware French Rolling Pin

The best pin for most bakers
The 23-inch version of this tapered pin rolls dough more efficiently than handled pins, works well for rolling both pies and cookies, and is one of the easiest to clean. Plus, it’s good-looking and sturdy enough to last a lifetime.
We recommend
JK Adams 19-inch Wooden Rolling Dowel, great for rolling cookies

JK Adams 19-inch Wooden Rolling Dowel

Great for rolling cookies
This dowel-shaped pin isn’t quite as agile as our main pick for making round shapes and needs to be dusted with flour more often. But it’s ideal for rolling oblong and rectangular shapes and can be fitted with spacers to help achieve precise thickness.
