A marble board is helpful for baking bread and rolling pie crusts
I love it for kneading bread or sticky bun dough. The cool marble releases the sticky dough and it is much less messy.
It is also great for rolling out cookie dough. After using it to make Christmas cookies several friends commented how much they wish they had one, so now I'm giving them out as gifts
The only advice or complaint I would offer is that the small plastic feet glued onto the bottom do not inhibit the board from sliding on most surfaces. I removed them with pliers by twisting them off. I replaced them with very thin rubberized stick-on pads made to attach to cell phones or other small devices to provide a better grip. The board now sits VERY close to the table, so it could make it more difficult to pick up if a person needed to move it for some reason. It's no problem for the rolled-top stainless table. These pads were something I already had, but there might be other types available that would give more clearance for fingers to get underneath the board while still gripping the surface for stability.

Few things are more therapeutic than working to make perfect pasta late at night. I'm not sure if it really has any impact on getting you close to perfect pasta elasticity, but I do appreciate that the board stays cold in my kitchen as I work the dough.

The only negative is the weight.....it's almost ridiculous. I don't have counter space to leave it out, so I need to set it up on the counter, against the tile wall and underneath the cabinets. It's extremely secure but I just have to be really careful when I pick it up and move it to the kitchen table. If you're lucky enough to set it permanently on a counter-top or kitchen island, you will have a win/win!
It's truly a beautiful board. It looks pretty magnificent in my kitchen, and I'm very, very happy I bought it.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
This board is 16" X 20" and 1" thick with a shipping weight of approximately 25 pounds.
Can this board be chilled in the refrig or freezer before working with dough? If so, what is the temp range for use? How long do you think it will stay cold? I'm hoping it will work something like a chilled pastry table :-
Does anyone know if I can cut on this board?
It appears to have feet since the board is raised off the counter in the pictures. Are the feet non-skid?
If I keep it out on my kitchen counter, can i put a hot pan or cookie sheet on it
if so, what is the level of ""purity""
Although I'd like to use this board to make pastries, cookies, and other baked goods, I'd love it if I could also use it as a marble slab in cooling hot sugar to make candies like taffy. Does anyone know if it's heat resistant for very high temperatures (up to probably about 300 degrees F)
