Product Review: Sushezi At Home Sushi Maker

Because my kitchen is currently in boxes for the next 9 days (the countdown has now begun!), I figured I would use this time to share some fun foodie finds from the recent trade show I attended. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these reviews so please feel free to comment on whether you could see yourself using the products, what you like/don't like, etc!

This gadget caught my eye because I'm such a sushi fan. I could eat sushi/sashimi everyday and I love how healthy it is (especially those maki rolls made with brown rice!). The company, Sante Cookware, primarily focuses on cast iron products.

Established in 2005, Logan, Utah-based Santé is a privately held manufacturer of high-end cooking equipment for the ultimate home kitchen. Santé is devoted to bringing its customers innovative and cutting edge cooking tools ranging from the Infusion Roaster™ and The Skookie™ to quality cast iron Dutch ovens, pots, pans and skillets. Santé is a division of Logan Outdoor Products, a manufacturer of quality cookware since 1991. -- Sante Cookware website

However, a new product in their line includes Sushezi, a tool that makes rolling sushi maki rolls easier and neater. It's definitely unique and may take some getting used to because this is far from any "authentic sushi making process" I've ever seen or heard of.

Sushezi - Perfect sushi made easy. Perfect sushi is no longer an expensive restaurant food. Professional, round sushi can now be created in your own kitchen with your own choice of filling. Additionally, many favorite desserts can be easily molded to display beautifully shaped fudge rolls, cake rolls, and biscuit cookies.

With easy-to-follow instructions, Sushezi creates perfectly formed sushi quickly and reliably with no guesswork and no trial and error. Using your own choice of imaginative fillings will make you a sushi expert and have your guests coming back for more.

The Sushezi can also be used for a variety of dessert items. Walnut rolls, fudge rolls, cake rolls, and biscuit cookies are only a few of the possibilities.
So what do you think? Would you use something like this to create maki sushi (and other items) at home? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
