No more boring rice! It's so easy to make special shaped onigiri or omusubi (Japanese rice balls) with this set that includes teddy, fish and elephant shapes. A great healthy addition to your lunchbox or dinner plate! 

Simply fill the shaper with hot, cooked rice and use the lid to press the rice down firm so it will hold its shape. Then push the onigiri back out and...that's it! 

If you're feeling extra creative, you can colour the rice first or add details with nori or vegetables. To create the desired 'stickiness' for moulding rice, we recommend using the absorption cooking method (1 cup rice to 1.5 cups water). Rinse the rice under water, add to cold water and bring to the boil. As soon as it boils, turn temperature to lowest setting an allow to simmer for 15 minutes. 

Sushi rice will work best, but any rice is fine.We mix in 3 Tablespoons of sushi vinegar into the rice before moulding.  

Each set contains 9 pieces. Elephant and fish moulds measure approx. 4.4cm x 5.7cm. Teddy mould measures approx. 5cm x 5cm.

All parts are made from 100% food safe plastic and are BPA free. We recommend hand washing. Made in Japan.
