I just bought this rolling pin and am thrilled with it. I had wanted one that lets me roll pie and cookie dough evenly and it is perfect for the job. Also, being metal, it stays cool. The silicone rolling mat was a real bonus. All marked with measurements and it really sticks to the countertop. Plus being easy to clean. My old wooden pin that I had for 50 years or more has now been respectfully retired to the bottom drawer and will be passed on to a granddaughter.
