Sushi-making Gadget

Oooooh, cool.  I don’t know if I would trust myself to make it.  But TechnoD makes his own sometimes… 

sushi-2Prod.jpgThere are very few things in life that I love more than sushi. That magical combination of vinegary rice, raw fish, and wasabi, just sends my taste-buds singing. So imagine my delight when I found out about this crazy contraption, Sushi@Home, which makes devices to help you make sushi at home. The round device makes Nigiri, whereas the long oblong device makes Maki. The devices are fairly mechanical in nature; the Nigiri device just shapes the rice ball for you, and the Maki device allows for easy setup and rolling (it does mean you'll get a square-ish Maki instead of a round one though). I don't think making your own sushi is all that difficult in the first place if you have a bamboo mat and you know what you're doing, but if you NEED proper measurements the Sushi@Home products might be for you. Both the Nigiri maker and the Maki roller go for $90 each, but if you get them together, they'll go for $150.
