We received a Sil-Pin silicone rolling pin to review. As my mom is the pie maker in the family, she used it to make pie crust for an apple pie. Silicone is everywhere in baking these days--mostly because of its nonstick surface. The Sil-Pin was much less sticky than our wooden rolling pin, but it isn't completely non-stick. You still need to put flour on the pin before rolling, but you can use a lot less flour. The bggest benefit is how easy it is to clean up. The dough came right off the pin with a wet towel while there is still dried dough on my wooden rolling pin that has never come off.
The rolling pin is very heavy--you might want to grab it if you think there is a burglar in your house. However, it doesn't feel heavy when you are rolling. It rolls smoothly and evenly due to the ball bearings in the handles. Overall, we were very impressed with the Sil-Pin--it is a big improvement over our previous wooden rolling pin. We received a black Sil-Pin, but it comes it lost of fun colors like red, tangerine, and pink.
We also received a Sil-Pin junior (which should be available at Linen's and Things), which is basically the same rolling pin, but smaller and lighter for kids. My daughter loved it, and she was able to roll out her own dough and make a mini pie with it.

I love a good space saving device. This cooling rack is expandable from 14.5" to 36" long. Once you are done cooling, you can push the expansions back in and store it. It is chrome-plated and dishwasher safe.
Frankly, just getting a pie made is hard enough work for me. But if you also want to make the pie pretty, these nylon cutters allow you to create decorative autumnal shapes out of your pie dough. You press the mold into the pie dough and depress the spring-loaded handle. Comes in a set of four--maple leaf, oak leaf, acorn, and pumpkin.

I'm sorry that summer is coming to an end, but the one good thing about fall is that everything is pumpkin flavored. With this pan you can make mini pumpkin cheesecakes in the shape of a pumpkin. Each cup has a removable disk in the base, so you can easily unmold the finished desserts. The pan conducts heat evenly to ensure uniform baking.
