Made from over 100 year old Kiso Sawara, straight grained cypress wood, this stunning wooden Sushi Mixing Bowl from Azmaya inherits its sublime design from traditional “Hangiri‘” rice containers, perfected over hundreds of years of use in homes and professional kitchens alike.
Each bowl is produced using handpicked Sawara cypress by master Japanese wood artisans. Similar to Hinoki wood, Sawara cypress offers a natural antibacterial quality, incredibly resilient against moisture accumulation. Sawara has the advantage of being less likely to impart unwanted flavour into cooked rice, making it an ideal material for food preparation tools and utensils. Sawara wood is said to ‘breathe’ and absorbs excess water, naturally regulating moisture while extracting the intrinsic yet enhanced sweetness of the rice kept safe inside. In the process, the wood helps balance the firmness of high quality rice grains, and maintains these natural flavours long after the cooked rice has cooled.
The Sushi Mixing Bowl is meant to be used between the moment your rice has been cooked and when it is served. Kiso Sawara cypress also has high acid resistance and makes an excellent and most ideal material for preparing delicious rice mixed with sushi seasoning (such as vinegar) for your family or the special occasions. It will keep your freshly prepared sushi rice tasting delicious and flavourful throughout the day and evening. It is precisely this quality that has made traditional Hangiri rice containers popular for so long.
The Sushi Mixing Bowl can be used multiple ways in your home as as a large serving bowl/tray to entertain your favourite dishes such as noodles, salad, desserts, etc.
