Today there are so many Hi-Tech kitchen tools to choose from. Slicers, deicer's, blenders, and food processors the list goes on and on.
Norpro Deluxe Pastry and Pizza Roller take me back to the basics of kitchen tools. Something so simple that is such a huge help in the kitchen; and no electricity, you don’t even have to plug this in.
The word deluxe in the title makes you think this is Hi-Tech, but it's just simple. If you like to bake pies, make home made pizza, or home made pasta this is the handiest tool you'll ever have.
I make my own home made pizza, and you would think by now that I could toss the dough in the air and twirl it around and then throw it in the pan. I'm sure you've seen those guys on television or those little pizza shops around town do this at one time or another.
Well I'm not that good, and that's why I have this handy tool. What makes this nice is that I'm spreading my dough while it's already in the pan.
The large roller will spread the dough almost to the edges of the pan. The small side will roll the dough right to the edges, then I press the edges to form the crust.
It's also great for pie dough, and home made ravioli. If you don't have a pasta machine to roll the pasta dough this is the tool that you'll want to have in your kitchen.
For ravioli, roll the dough long and wide enough, then spoon in the ricotta cheese, fold the dough over, and cut the individual ravioli. Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges.
