I ordered this with some reservations as the reviews were hit and miss. I definitely fell in the miss category as the product I received did not roll smoothly at all. Being an engineer, I examined it (after all, how complex can a rolling pin be?) and found that the handle is somehow fitted eccentrically to the marble. The result is that instead of a smooth motion, the rolling pin rolls a few inches and then binds and locks up so the handles do not spin freely. I immediately contacted Amazon to return this product.
It was an OK gamble given the price, but save yourself the trouble. In fact, I'd say that the use of marble and materials to make this product is just a waste of resources. I'd recommend looking for something that is fitted with nylon bearings at a minimum and stainless steel if you work a lot with pastry. There is simply no accounting for the pleasure of working with good tools, whatever your passion may be.
