I got this for my son to help with baking. He also still plays with play doh and decided that one would be for baking and the other for his play doh. This is perfect for his size and age. These are easy to use and clean up. I hand wash them when he is done using them. I wouldn't put them in the dishwasher. I was told by my grandmother never put your rolling pins in the dishwasher alway wash by hand.
