Wish there was a faster and easier way to make sushi at home? Wish there was a way to load rice and fillings into a tube and blast a large sushi roll out the end like a bazooka?
The Suhezi, or “Extra-Thick Bazooka Sushi Jiro” as it’s now known in Japan, may be the sushi bazooka for you.
The sushi bazooka…er, Sushezi is a simple device composed of nothing more than a plastic tube, a plunger and an “endcap.” Fill each half of the tube with rice, make grooves in each half with the plunger and add the other ingredients. Fix the cap on one end of the tube and attach the plunger to the other, compress the rice, remove the cap and plunge a fresh sushi log right through the tube and onto a sheet of nori.
Looking at the reviews on Amazon , the Sushezi actually does seem to deliver on results despite the “As-Seen-On-TV” presentation. Preparing the ingredients will obviously take time, but a number of reviews claim that once you’re set up you can start squeezing out rolls in a matter of minutes.
The Sushezi has been on the market overseas for several years but was unheard of in Japan until online novelty good vendor Nigiwai Shoten began offering it via Rakuten on July 11. Considering how serious the Japanese are about their sushi, presenting the Sushezi as a gag gift is perhaps the only way to get them to accept it.
The Sushezi can be purchased from Amazon for those of you in North America. If you live in Japan, you’ll have to go through Rakuten .
