Laser Cut Rolling Pins Help Make Edible Bread Bowls [Video]

Rollware is a simple and versatile idea to make dishware.

Students from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam have created a set of roller pins that allows users to create decorative and edible dishware. Joanne Choueiri, Giulia Cosenza and Povilas Raskevicius called the set ‘Rollware.’

The rolling pins include lazer-cut shapes and patterns that allow the user to construct different sized plates and bowls in various designs with the dough. After the dough is baked, these bread-based dishwares can be used to served food and eventually eaten afterwards.


Rollware is a simple and clever idea that is also highly versatile. Watch the video below to see how the plates and bowls are made:
