Why would you choose to swirl boring ass spaghetti around your fork instead of biting into a delicious, cheesy mouthful of ravioli? Unfortunately, the fun pasta shapes are harder to make. But it doesn't have to be so hard.
If engineer Michael Finizio gets his way, you won't have to settle for beginner's noodles just because you're not great at folding dough. His Fonde rolling pin is a remarkably elegant method of making ravioli.
Finizio's Kickstarter for Fonde was successfully funded on the first day it launched, which is not surprising, because the Fonde already looks like something Williams-Sonoma should be peddling for a gross amount of money. And ravioli rolling pins do exist, but Finizio's engineering and attention to detail make his version an especially smart solution.
And the off-label uses for this beautiful wooden contraption are endless: you could make square pierogies! Or tiny calzones! The dumpling-based possibilities boggle the mind and water the mouth. [Kickstarter]
