An uncapping roller is a tool used in honey extraction that allows beekeepers to remove the wax cappings from the honeycomb without damaging the underlying honey. The roller is made up of a series of small needles or spikes that penetrate the wax cappings when rolled over the surface of the comb. This process exposes the honey within the cells, making it easier to extract using a honey extractor.

Using an uncapping roller is a simple and efficient way to harvest honey from the comb without creating a mess, as the wax cappings are removed cleanly and without the need for knives or other cutting tools. This can save time and effort during the honey harvesting process, and can also help to reduce waste and ensure a higher quality of honey.
