Another kitchen gadget you never knew you needed
Cooking enthusiasts have lots of drool-worthy gadgets to make cooking healthier and easier, but this is certainly one of the strangest. It's a Sushi Bazooka, sold by Strapya World of Japan. For 2,000 yen, or about $25.50, you can be the proud owner of this plastic maki maker.
According to the company's website, all you need to do is load cooked rice into the barrel of the device, along with fish, vegetables, or other ingredients. Then attach the plunger and push to make a perfect log ready for wrapping in seaweed.
The Strapya World website, where you can buy the bazooka, is chock-full of great photo illustrations of the device in action. It also assures you that the bazooka has been "tested with real food." That's encouraging. And let's face it, humans are going to need every edge they can get to keep up with this sushi-making machine.
