using a cylindrical plunger.

  • The sushi in the last picture wasn’t made with the bazooka. There’s no way the nori would get into the rice like that if it had been added after the roll was made. Lousy mistake if that’s how they’re promoting the product… Nothing more disgusting than dishonest advertising!

  • I can think of a few things…

  • You had me at the lens flare on the third image

    mstndvn says:
  • Genial!! sushi tipo andy warhol, arte en serie!! felicito a sus creadores!

  • this is a very good example of how Design should NOT be.
    The original method to make sushi is much easier, faster and you don’t end up with another piece of plastic in the kitchen. bad. also agree at the fake picture and shows that it doesn’t really work. long live the old bamboo-mat.

    mig says:
  • This could be a great product. Many people have trouble making sushi in the traditional fashion, and they might be able to use this. But wait a minute! If you order now, you’ll not only get the Sushi Bazooka, but you get a free paring knife and cutting mat to prepare your sushi fillings! For one easy payment of $29.95. If you order in the next 15 minutes, we’ll double your order! you’ll get TWO Sushi Bazookas, TWO paring knives, and TWO cutting mats!

  • i could use one of these

  • I actually think this is a really interesting idea.
    Oh yeah, we are all designers and we are all picky about how each other design motifs.
    I know how frustrated it is for some peeps to roll sushi with bamboo mat. I tried myself and it’s not easy as what it looks.

    I know this design is a little gimmicky, but from my POV it’s design for pleasure.

    Didn’t Charles Eames, a great designer we all praise for, mentioned what’s wrong with to design a product for human pleasure? Isn’t pleasure a thing that we all pursue?

    Why so serious? says:
  • Just like Mig, I believe this is STUPID design, think of the process and on the ecological footprint.
    The materials, the amount of injection molding and the transportation for this small device is absurd.
    While the normal process simply requires bamboo and cotton….
    Please, reconsider!!
