Sushi Press

A Sushi Press is a box with a lid used to make oshi sushi -- layered sushi.

The box is usually made of wood, but you can get them made of plastic.

Soak wooden ones in water for 10 minutes first before using, then wipe dry.

Then, wipe the insides including the top with tezu. Put your layers of sushi ingredients in, then press down with the top.

Them remove the pressed sushi from the press and cut into even pieces

After use, wash with warm soapy water, then let air dry completely, then store in plastic bag.


Line a terrine or loaf pan with straight sides with plastic wrap. Make your layers. Cover with plastic wrap. Weigh down with a heavy object for 15 minutes or so.
