The Sushi Mold kit is a beautifully crafted tool for making oshizushi (or 'pressed sushi') with ease. No master sushi chef training required!
The kit consists of a solid Hinoki Cedar wood rectangular mold with regularly spaced grooves that rests on a removable bottom board. A top lid (or pushing element) that forms the rice.
To use, place the mold on top of the bottom board. Line the mold with plastic wrap, fill with flavored sushi rice and top with thin slices of raw fish, smoked salmon, thinly sliced vegetables, or whatever you prefer. Wrap the plastic over the top of the rice and toppings and push down gently with the top lid. Slice the sushi where the grooves are- right through the plastid wrap. Voilà- perfectly portioned sushi!
Dimensions (fully assembled): 20.9 × 6.7 × 4.8 cm (8.29" x 2.64" x 1.89").
Care: Hand wash only. Do not leave the parts soaking in water for too long. Wipe with a soft dry cloth after washing and leave to dry out in an airy location.
A little about Hinoki Cedar wood:
Hinoki is a special type of cedar wood native to Japan. It is known to have natural antimicrobial qualities. It also absorbs excess moisture from food, improving its taste. Hinoki is used extensively for food containers, bento boxes (see our Magewappa bento boxes), and even traditional bathtubs.
