The Hinoki Onigiri Mold is a beautiful wooden kit to make medium sized (5.5cm / 2.2" tall) Japanese rice balls with ease and elegance.
What we love about it:
- Unlike most onigiri molds made from plastic, this one is made from Hinoki wood (Japanese cypress). Beautiful, fragrant and sustainable.
- Made with care in Mie, Japan.
- Includes solid wood rectangular block with two triangular openings and a base.
Featured in "Hot Dish by Sohla"!
How to use:
- Rinse mold with water (prevents rice from sticking).
- Pack Japanese short grain rice into the openings.
- Make a shallow indentation in the center of the rice, and add a bit of filling of your choice (such as salmon, umeboshi, canned tuna with mayonnaise and soy sauce).
- Cover with more rice, and press down firmly.
- Carefully remove onigiri from mold and enjoy!
You can also mix rice with Furikake before placing in the mold, for quick and easy seasoned rice onigiri.
Details and Care:
- Dimensions: 17.2cm (6.7") x 7.5cm (2.9") x 3.4cm x 3.4cm (1.3").
- Hand wash only. Do not soak in water for long periods of time. Wipe with a soft dry cloth after washing. Please don't use this as a cutting board for your bread, or you will damage the surface!
About Hinoki Wood:
- Hinoki is a type of Japanese cedar wood. It is known to have natural antimicrobial qualities and absorbs excess moisture from food, making it taste better.
- Hinoki is used extensively for food containers, bento boxes (see our Magewappa bento boxes), and even traditional bathtubs.
