german based studio osko + deichmann with sushi roller will be part of the kitchen ecology exhibition in los angeles, june 2009.

sushi, being a traditional japanese dish, has been becoming increasingly popular in europe and the united states over the last decade. recently sushi is being transferred from the restaurant to the home. more and more people are trying to make their own sushi. despite the fact, that becoming a real sushi-chef takes years of experience, preparing the ingredients for a maki-roll is quite easy. the traditional maki is a rice-roll filled with sliced vegetables (e.g. cucumber) and covered with a sheet of seaweed (nori). only the rolling itself, with the traditional bamboo-mat, is difficult without practice. often people get frustrated after a few attempts. the sushiroller solves the problem enabling everybody to make perfectly round, thick maki-rolls.

  • looks like that could roll one fat doobie

    peaces says:
  • you can roll fat junts with that shit man!!

    Mush says:
  • Great!
    Just made sushi last weeks with my hands, this could be very usefull.

    Boten. says:
  • Uhh, which end do ya light?

    MajorGrubert says:
  • This is exactly like the tobacco rollers common in europe. I’ve used dozens

    Gil says:
  • doesn’t seem to do anything that a good old sheet of bamboo mat won’t do. What’s the point? Oh, I guess for people with only one hand.

    adora says:
  • lots to lick

    dan says:
  • Omg… This is very clever design..lovely

    aryen says:
  • Is this one of those “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” things?

    gaijin says:
  • what can be more ecological than building a piece that uses plastic and energy to be produced, and only substitues a sheet of bamboo… with worst results for sure…

    I’m always amazed by geniality

    fugu says:
  • omg stfu u all

    bewbs says:
  • Yup, basically a supersized cigarette roller. But still, clever!

    Dibs says:
  • Pretty clever design – well done !

  • Fantastic!!!!!

    Zahira says:
  • this is in no way a new design…thats just a giant joint roller, whoever did this is clever to use it to make sushi but they didnt come up with anything new.

    g says:
  • i have one of those but for joint rolling.

    f says:
  • its like a cig rolling machine

    jamal ahmad says:
  • Having worked as a Sushi chef for some time a few years ago and having used a cigarette roller of the same design I can confidently say that this would be more difficult to use than a bamboo mat.

    It would however be very good as another useless item to give someone at Christmas to look after for a year or two until it ends up in its eventual home, a landfill site.

    And what’s ecological about using plastic where wood would work just as well? True genius…

    Mr L says:
  • excellant design! I might try making one myself and trying it out!
