Cookie Thing - Review and Discount

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I like to bake but don't consider myself an expert.  When I make cookies, they're never the same size or thickness.  It doesn't bother me for the most part but I know they bake better if they're even, and they definitely look better if they are.

I recently received a preparation tool that's helped me get my cookies to an equal thickness and size. It's the Cookie Thing, a baking tool made with solid maple that helps you roll out all sorts of dough to the exact thickness you are needing. There is also the Little Cooking Thing which is designed for children and their smaller hands.

When I received the Cookie Thing, I was a little taken aback at first. The smaller size has one rolling pin and one set of measuring boards. The original Cookie Thing has a lot more measuring boards. It seemed like a lot of parts just to bake cookies. It was after reading the instructions that it all became clearer.

To use the Cookie Thing you first need to place about two cups of cookie dough on the center of a piece of wax paper, about the length of a cookie sheet. Place another piece of wax paper on top of that. Next, leave a little space between the outer edge of dough and measuring boards. Measuring boards should be sitting on top of the two sheets of wax paper with dough sandwiched between. Place the roller centered on top of the dough. Then you are to press down on rolling pin in center, pushing away from you and then towards you. By rolling across the boards with the pin, your dough gets rolled out to precise thickness. It's really not as hard as it first looks.

There are four varieties of measuring boards. All are the same length, but differ in thickness. Boards measure in depths of 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2". When you are done using them, the boards and pin should be wiped with a damp cloth and never soaked in water or put in the dishwasher.

It is easier to just roll out cookies with a rolling pin and bake them. But, if you want cookies that are an even thickness, then Cookie Thing is the perfect product. When using it, I have cookies that look a lot more fancier than if I hadn't. Who knew that maple boards and roller would work so well with making cookies look wonderful!
