Who invented the rolling pin?

Answer

No one knows for certain who invented the rolling pin. However, historians have determined that the Etruscans were the first known civilization to use rolling pins.

The Etruscans, who lived north of Rome, Italy, used rolling pins in their cooking as early as the 9th century. Passing cooking techniques and recipes down from generation to generation was an important part of the Etruscan culture. One such cooking technique was the use of the rolling pin.

These early rolling pins were made from a variety of materials, including baked clay, stone, smoothed branches and even glass. Modern rolling pins are made from wood, silicone, metal and marble. Unlike early models, contemporary rolling pins have handles. Some also have a nonstick surface and a built-in heating/cooling system.
