Staying at home can awaken the desire to tame new culinary techniques, such as getting into making sushi. A pan for making rice, a bamboo mat and a sharp knife are all you need to learn, but an array of accessories could enhance your experience.
To get sushi rice perfectly cooked while avoiding the risk of it sticking to the bottom of the pot, the use of an electric rice cooker like this 5.5 cup Tiger model is desirable. When the rice is ready, the appliance will keep it warm for 12 hours, in its case decorated with pretty flowers. Set includes spatula, steamer basket, removable non-stick inner container and measuring cup.
To roll sushi, the use of a makisu is required. Usually in bamboo, Lékué rather offers a model of small silicone mat. It is non-stick and does not retain the taste or smell of the food it is around, then cleans easily. Use it for all types of rolls whether Japanese or not!
Whether it’s sushi from your favorite restaurant or your own creations, it deserves to be placed on a special plate. This one, made of white porcelain, will highlight them! It even includes a compartment for storing wasabi, soy sauce, spicy mayonnaise or pickled ginger. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe for easy maintenance.

Making makis, these sushi rolled in a nori sheet, requires mastering a precise and delicate technique to obtain the perfect rolls. Since it is not easy for everyone, several amateurs might be tempted by the use of this accessory. It offers the option of bringing the ingredients together, closing the lid and simply pulling the pull sheet to create professional-looking maki in minutes.
Swap the chopsticks
Handling pieces of sushi with chopsticks is a challenge for many people. Why not trade them for this maple clip called ramille, a Quebec product by Littledeer. She can just as easily move a grain of rice, a thin slice of ginger or a fish sashimi as a nigiri (sushi consisting of a ball of rice and a piece of fish on top).
