Cat Embossed Rolling Pin by Gooj

This rolling pin is simply adorable, a most have for any cat lover. It is solid wood, and embossed with several different cat figures that repeat creating a pattern with over 100 cat designs; Its details are remarkable, and clear. This is a heavy duty rolling pin made with quality materials. My big dilemma with this pin is that I want to use it in the kitchen but I would love to also use it with my crafts. As I roll it creating beautiful eatable surfaces with tiny cats all over, I also imagine how beautiful the imprint of the cats on clay would look like. My toddler loves his “cat bread” and because of it my crafting ideas would have to wait. As my son grows he has become a bit picky when it comes to eating, requiring me to get creative in the kitchen in order to get him to eat without any battles. I started making him peanut butter sandwiches and simply rolling a few cats on the bread to see if there was any reaction, to my surprise the next day he requested his “cat bread” and ever since that day he asks for it, and eats it all.

While this rolling pin is great, it lacks some care instructions. Its wood is not cured/treated which means it requires the user to cure it before its used. There are several ways to treat the wood, mineral oil is one of the most used oils but I prefer a coconut based oil that its used for cutting boards which makes it be food safe. Whatever oil you choose to treat the pin before its use, do some research as not all oils are created the same. Also remember that the pin as with anything thats made out of wood in the kitchen will need be to treated again occasionally, it is not a one time only task. There is also other care techniques that should be taken in consideration in order to maintain the longevity of the wood.
