With sushi now practically a staple at food courts around the world, it’s not hard to find this Japanese form of fast food when out and about. But if you’re looking to do it yourself at home and don’t trust your rolling skills or are a novice with a bamboo rolling mat then the Sushi Bazooka could be a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal.

The device consists of a cylinder that opens up ready to receive the rice and your choice of neta (or non-rice ingredients). Put the rice in first, followed by the neta, close it up and attach the plunger and the Sushi Bazooka is ready to extrude a perfect sushi cylinder onto a nori (sheet of seaweed) for wrapping. No, despite it’s name, the Sushi Bazooka won’t allow you to fire fully formed sushi into the mouths of friends across the table.

While the Sushi Bazooka is available for pre-order at Japan’s Strapya World, which encouragingly claims the plastic device has been “tested with real food,” it apparently hails from New Zealand. The upside of this is that it will ship with English instructions.

The Sushi Bazooka measures roughly 29.5 cm (11.6 in) long and 5.5 cm (2.2 in) wide and retails for 2,000 yen (approx. US$25.50). It is expected to ship in mid-October 2012.
