What Is This Kitchen Tool Used For?

I found a kitchen tool and don't know what it is. It is used in one hand. It has a roller on each end. One of the rollers is about 3 inches wide. The other roller is about 1 1/2 inches wide. All I can think of is something to use with pastry but other than that I am lost.

sounds like either a pasta cutter or what i've heard called a dounut braid cutter. try looking for kitchen tools on ebay just to compare the picture of it to know what it is. does it appear to be old antique?

Does it look like the pasta cutter on this page?


I cant tell if the wheels are different sizes or if the angle of the shot just makes it appear as such.

Yep. I agree with Sara. I think it's a baker's roller. I have one made out of wood. I use it to help stretch pizza dough and to even out pie crust right in the pie plate. It's small enough to get into the corners. HTH

From your description, sounds like a pampered chef roller. I've got one myself! As some of the other readers posted, it's used to stretch out dough into a pan, hence the different size on each end. Mine has a little pick tucked in the handle. It looks like a tiny fork, and that is used to make "breathing" holes into the dough.

It sounds like a pizza dough roller. If you don't do alot of baking, it works great as mini massager on someones tired shoulders. Just apply slight pressure as you roll it across.
