No, we don't usually go in for infomercial-grade products, but then again we've never seen the Sushi Bazooka before. When was the last time you saw a kitchen gadget being hocked by three singing sushi chefs, each holding a perfectly made sushi roll on a graphic with the slogan, "Make perfect Sushi rolls! Quick! Easy! Hilarious!" If you aren't excited yet, maybe the sixteen exclamation marks on the ad will do the trick, or perhaps the fact that you can become a sushi master with this "convenient and washable 3-piece set" will get you to pick up your phone and order NOW!!
We understand that some people are actually good at rolling sushi with nothing more than a bamboo mat, but for everyone who's ever tried to impress a date with a homemade sushi dinner only to wind up with rolls that disintegrate when you cut them up, this Sushi Bazooka, as cheesy as it is, is actually kind of awesome. Oddly enough, it's produced in New Zealand, so the instructions are in English—not that you'd actually need to reference them. This plastic wand is pretty self explanatory: "Make sushi. Eat sushi. Wash sushi off. Repeat the process at your convenience." What more do you need to know? Could this just be the next $25 piece of kitchen crap you buy? Yes, it very well could be. OR it could also be the light saber of the sushi world? Remember, "Do, or do not (make sushi). There is no try."
