    That is horrifying. Not that the product exists, but that I can see it potentially being popular, meaning the very real prospect of having to choke down some sh!tty home-made sushi at parties, holiday gatherings or office events. :shudder:

    The crazy thing, is that the hardest part about sushi (preparing and seasoning the rice) and the second hardest home-cook challenge (finding high-quality fish) aren't addressed here. It's a friggin' rice former. W.T.F?! But I've seen Onigiri makers like this before, so I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised that there's a product like this.

    Hmmm. What to say?

    I know Tupperware has a '70s vibe to it here in the US, but since the 1990s they have won dozens of design awards, and in 2009 they won the Red Dot Design Team award which is pretty big sh!t. With that said, I would never use this sushi maker, but my daughter (who loves sushi) would definitely like it.

    I don't know, I give Tupperware props for taking a crack at sushi even though I would never use the product.

    But I also agree with bprescot that it was painful watching the rice and fish part...

    Haha, oh man. It would actually take longer to make it that way, too.

    Yes, to all of the above.
    But perhaps it will introduce more to Sushi and some of those will end up doing it "right".

    Course, it may turn some off forever as well...

    After a few years of sporadic off and on attempts, I still don't think I get the rice quite right. It's serviceable and better than your average grocery store rolls, but it's still ... off. Now if they could make a dummy proof way to do THAT I'd give it a try. But forming the rolls or rice as the case may be hasn't every struck me as a particular challenge. My worry with this is that you'll actually mash the rice rather than form it.

    Yeah, I can see that, and that spatula scraping the rice into the molds was cringe-worthy.

    I guess I just have my 6-year-old in mind. She wanted to learn how to make sushi, so a couple of months ago we gave it a try. She made the seasoning and did pretty well. But her tiny little hands and improper wetting led to a lot of frustration with the rice. She was better at the rolls, but nigiri are her favorite.

    Well... the video was well produced... that's something, right? They coulda put Giada's boney fingers in there and had her patting the rice into the molds (in front of her low cut shirt), and it'd be sold out by now.

    I would have bought one, or at least watched the video over again.
