I love pointless gadgets; ice cream maker, george foreman grills, bread maker, electric tin opener, yoghurt maker – I have them all. I noticed a product called Sushi at home – an easy way to make sushi at home.
Cool, I thought. These retail for around £80. It looks like you can drop your rice in one ends, some toppings, some seaweed, roll it and out pops some ready made sushi.
How wrong I was!
Basically you get two parts the Nigiri Rice Press (which is the big thing) and a Maki Roller Items.
Here are 2 videos that show how to use:
How pointless is this? The maki roller is essentially this:
A bamboo mat costs about 99p and is used to help you roll Sushi up. Alternatively you can stick some rulers together to get the Sushi at Home posh roller effect? The principe is the same – you are just rolling the Sushi up.
As for Nigiri, all you need is:
Yes, your hands. Whats so hard about patting some rice into a cuboid? Just wet your hands first so it doesn’t stick.
Otherwise get one of these:
Only £1.99, and you can make 5 at the same time!
