It can take years to be properly trained as a sushi chef. Or, with the help of a little magic, it can take minutes. Promising to â€œput the â€˜Uâ€™ in sushiâ€ (um, eww), Sushi Magic offers fresh-fish lovers an easy-to-use kit that gives everyone the ability to make sushi at home. The kit contains a mold for making nigiri sushi, and a non-stick silicone mat for creating rolls. Included is a â€˜sushi handbookâ€™, which includes tips for selecting sushi-grade fish, and cooking sushi rice.
The nigiri mold may or may not be overkill, but the roller definitely has potential. Normally, a bamboo mat covered with plastic-wrap is used to create sushi rolls; this traditional method takes some getting used to. The roller mat mimics this arrangement and adds easy-to-grasp handles and a berm to hold the roll in place as itâ€™s released.
The Sushi Magic Kit is available for $29.95, making it a tempting gift to get for the impatient sushi lover in your life.
