Sushi ROLLING MAT: How to Choose the right one

 

https://www.sushisushi.co.uk/products/rolling-mat

The majority of sushi rolling mats are manufactured from pieces of bamboo, tied together with a type of string. Functions are, to roll and squeeze sushi together, enabling you to form a tight maki roll. Lovely!

There are different types of rolling mats. On one hand, you have the “cheap” kind, typically, a complete waste of space. Cheaper rolling mats, in general, have two rounded edges. “More expensive” types are available, providing more impressive results. You will find one edge flattened, the other rounded. Expensive types are not only practical but notoriously easier to use!

Alternative methods such as placing cling film beneath seaweed, after which using a spoon to flatten the rice before rolling, has proven to be an effective technique. A clean tea towel or dishcloth in place of the Makis also works wonders!

You can buy a bamboo rolling mat from our sushi store.
