Additionally, should I oil my rolling pin? It is often recommended that wooden rolling pins be wiped with food grade mineral oil to create a waterproof seal, to keep pastry from sticking to it, and to keep the wood from drying out. If the wood in your rolling pin appears to be drying out, use an oil that is safe to eat and won't go rancid.
