    1. It is light in weight.
    2. It offer's two sizes (easier to get just the right size you want).
    3. Easy to handle due to it's size.
    4. Comes with it's own snap on tool to poke your dough.
    5. Can spray with PAM to make it non-stick.
    This is all I have!

    You only need 1 hand to use it

    Don't need a force to pierce you dough because the tool for that is right in your hand when the rolling pin is in it

    Actually, it's non-stick w/o Pam. Just stick it in the freezer for 5 minutes before using it, and it's non-stick. :)

    It's great for rolling out doughs and crumb crusts right in the pan, and up the sides of the pan. Also can be used in bar pans to roll out crumb crusts, pizza crusts, etc...right in the pan.

    Excellent. Keep going (oh, and as far as crimping and docking goes .. every kitchen has at least one fork which does the job as well or perhaps better).

    I have to agree with the ladies. It's good for rolling things out in a pan. You can't do that with a rolling pin because it's too big. I wouldn't dream of using it for actual pastry dough as I'd be rolling all day.

    I don't think there are 10. I think that reason is good enough.

    Before becoming a consultant, I really hesitated buying one because my wish list was so full of other "more urgent" type of products-since I already had a rolling pin. But after having it, I'm so glad I finally broke down and got one. I use it WAY more than my rolling pin. It's easier to store, lighter weight, so much handier. I love that I can use it with one hand. I can use it in the bar pan or pie plate. I use it for crushing things, too. Sometimes bringing out a huge rolling pin makes you feel silly. But ours is small and nice.

    The other thing I love it for is keeping a toddler happy. All of my kids at the toddler stage would find my mom's when we'd be visiting her. They loved to pretend they were painting the walls with it. :)

    I just got one last month. I have always hated my rolling pin but figured there wasn't anything better.... I was wrong. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my baker's roller and I have been talking it up at all my shows.... I even got my 66 year old mother who would never dream of using anything other than her rolling pin to buy one... and she loves it too! Just another product to add to the long list of PC's most amazing tools!
