Although it may seem counterintuitive, rollers without handles are much easier to use and maneuver than those that do. This is because your hands are closer to the dough you are working on and, therefore, you have more touch and control to achieve the desired result. In addition, they are also easier to clean, maintain and store.

How do you use a roller?

To use a rolling pin with the proper technique, start by dusting the surface where you will work the dough with a little flour. This will prevent it from sticking. Do the same with your rolling pin, lightly dusting flour around the surface of the rolling pin you will be using. When you have the dough ready to be handled, place the rolling pin in the center of the dough with your hands at the ends. Start by rolling the roller up, return to the center, and do the same down. Make sure that the pressure you apply is neither too strong nor too light, and that it remains constant. Pick up the rolling pin and rotate the dough 90 degrees. Place the roller in the center again and make the same movements. Repeat until you have achieved the desired shape and thickness.

How to choose the size of the roller?

It may not seem like it, but different lengths on a roller do make a difference. Use a shorter rolling pin if the dough you are working with is smaller and you want more control over it. One of the advantages of using a shorter rolling pin is that you can manipulate it with one hand and use your other hand to turn the dough as you work it. This is ideal, for example, when you are making dumplings.
