We talked some time ago about the Sushi Bazooka, a Japanese gadget to make maki effortlessly. Thanks to our friends at Strapya World, we now have the Sushi Bazooka in hands to test this gadget in real conditions!
Unpacking, we discover this gadget, halfway between a giant syringe and a miniature bazooka. Entirely of plastic, the object looks strong. Also found in the box the manual in Japanese, but also a manual translated into English with photos and a series of sushi recipes but also cookies and cakes recipes that can be achieved thanks to Sushi Bazooka.
Let’s go make some maki! It is very simple, just lightly oil the inside of the gadget with a drop of oil, then fill both sides with sushi rice (very convenient in this case to have a rice cooker). Then use the plunger to compress rice and widen the space for the filling. For the filling, nothing more simple, you choose! From the classic salmon / avocado sushi to sweet sushi banana / chocolate, you can be creative. For this test, we have chosen a “pork / mayo / chili / avocado” and a more classic “surimi / avocado.” Just drop your filling directly into the rice, then close the bazooka!
Put the cap, which allows using the press to compress the rice. The system is well done and it even has a specified limit and screw system to compress carefully. Once completed, simply remove the cap and gently squeeze to get the maki roll, you can keep it as is or place it on a sheet of nori.
Simply cut the roll, and voila! A second version with surimi / avocado / nori:
After making 4 or 5 different sets of maki, it’s time for the verdict! The Sushi Bazooka is a really nice Japanese gadget, easy to use and allows you to make maki easily without mess around. The object is solid and filled his role well. I find that the sushi bazooka is a little big for simple maki, but it is perfect for small futomaki… Now, let’s eat!
