Like other rolling pins, you can use the Valek Rolling Pins to shape and flatten dough. Unlike them, these baking utensils leave your cookies, pies, and pastries embossed with a variety of patterns, allowing you to create uniquely-decorated baked goods without any extra work.
Created by Poland-based Zuzia Kozerska, you simply use the cylindrical rollers to form and shape your dough, whether you’re making roti, pizza, or a batch of cookies for the kids. With the built-in engravings on the pin, all the patterns should be automatically embossed on the flour mixture, leaving them ready to be placed in the oven with the unique pattern already in tow.
Each Valek Rolling Pin is laser-engraved with its own set of patterns that include traditional folk designs, geometric shapes, and elaborate patterns. They also have engravings for patterns that kids are more likely to enjoy when cast onto their baked snacks, such as dinosaurs, dogs, and cats. Construction is beech wood for the rollers, which are individually laser-engraved before being oiled by hand to protect it from wear. The pins come in two sizes: a regular version that measures 45 x 6 cm (length x diameter) and weighs 600 g; and a kiddie version that measures 24 x 4.5 cm and weighs 160g.
Available from their Etsy store, the Valek Rolling Pins are priced at $35 for the regular version and $23 for the kiddie version.
