Sushi-Okes, Handais

when we cook and arrange sushi

There are two kinds of bowls commonly called "sushi-oke".
One is a round vessel that is used for serving as Nigiri-sushi.Some are lacquer ware and others are made of resin.
nother sushi-oke is made of wood. It is fastened with a metal hoop, and plays the role controlling the amount of moisture in the rice. Also called a “Handai” or “Hangiri”.
When making vinegar rice, we need to release the rice’s moisture appropriately.Anything other than a sushi-oke will not release the rice’s moisture well.It often will result in mushy rice.If you use a sushi-oke, the wood will control the moisture of the rice if you mix the rice gently.
The fragrance of wood will further enhance the flavor of vinegar rice.
One of the attractions is that the arrangement of the sushi will look more authentic.

Keep cooked rice delicious by
putting it in an “ohitsu”

It is said that "trees is breathe". An ohitsu also absorbs moderately the moisture contained in the rice, and it releases the appropriate amount of moisture, much like “breathing”.Therefore, the moisture in the rice put in the ohitsu is kept to the right level.When cooked rice is stored in a rice cooker, the surface may dry up after half a day, but with an ohitsu it adjusts the moisture of the whole container, so you can keep rice delicious for half a day.
Especially when you want to preserve for a long time, the "ohitsu" with the lid is very useful.
It absorbs and releases moisture from the all sides making, it easier to keep the moisture of the rice consistent.
