Hangiri Wooden Rice Barrel 28 3/8" dia

43.0000 LBS

Product Description

Material: Cypress wood

Dimensions: 28 3/8" dia (72 cm)
A hangiri is a wooden barrel or tub that is traditionally used to mix rice with vinegar when making sushi. It is also used to mix rice with a variety of ingredients to make chirashizushi. Sushi chefs prefer to use this wooden hangiri over plastic containers because wood absorbs the right amount of moisture from the rice to prevent sogginess and make it the perfect texture.
Hangiri barrels from Japan are made of Japanese cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera), which is known for its resistance to pests as well as its fine texture. 
* Please make sure to dry the hangiri facing outward to prevent any mold growth.

We understand that food safety is important and that health authorities in certain states may object to the use of these wooden barrels but we think it is important to preserve this traditional use of the hangiri. Please note that this is to support the use of hangiri made in Japan only.
