Hangiri Sushi Rice Barrel


Hangiri, also known as handai, sushi oke or sushi barrels, are used in Japanese homes professional kitchens to cool the rice and absorb excess moisture. Hangiris have large, flat bases allowing the cooked rice to be spread out evenly in order to release steam and cool down to the right temperature for rolling. The hangiri sushi barrel is made out of cypress wood, which soaks up residual moisture, and infuses the sushi rice with delicate, tea-scented wood notes.

Use a paddle to stir and fold sushi vinegar through the sushi rice, and cover with a cloth until you are ready to use the hangiri. This sushi barrel features two copper-coloured bands, staying true to traditional designs.
