If you’re planning on making mince pies for Christmas and you live in Durbs -or anywhere else with high levels of humidity – then this is the rolling pin for you! It was manufactured by JAJ Pyrex and is designed to be filled with ice cubes or cold water: the idea is that the cold glass will stop the pastry from sticking to the rolling pin, which is apparently a real problem if you’re baking in a hot, humid climate. I bought this rolling pin its original box, but sadly I had to toss the box away as it was just too damaged, but it shows that whoever owned it before really looked after it well. I can see that it has been used, but it’s been exceptionally well cared for and the signs of wear are minimal. The ideal gift for the baker who has everything – or nearly everything!
Dimensions: 35cm long x 5cm in diameter
