I am a fan of Joseph Joseph stuff – I love the colours, quality and the practicality of it all. So imagine my delight, when recently I was sent a Joseph Joseph gift set to review with a much coveted rolling-pin in its contents. I know. Most people set their hearts on a Tiffany necklaces or an iPad mini….not me, I have my covetous eyes lurking over rolling pins and kitchen gadgetry.
Anyway, the very nice people at Amara Living sent me the gift set, worth £40, to try out. Can I just say, that for forty quid I think it’s a really nice pressie for someone…it comes beautifully presented with rolling-pin, silicone brush, spatula and timer. I might get one for a wedding coming up this year…
…I digress. What makes this particular rolling-pin a ‘must-have’ is the fact that it is adjustable. It has three discs either end that you can easily take on and off and in doing so you can choose the thickness of whatever you are rolling. I wish I’d had it at Christmas when I was rolling out my dough for my gingerbread tree. There I was, ruler in hand, trying to ascertain whether it was 5mm think or not, but with this roller, I just pop on the 5mm discs and roll away!
I have used it to make all sorts of biscuits and yesterday I made a rather delicious apple pie, with a perfectly even crust!
