A Sticky Situation

August 22, 2011 at 2:47 pm Leave a comment

A rice paddle is one of the most important kitchen utensils in the Japanese home. Why? Because when you’re scooping out rice, there’s nothing worse than the sound of a metal spoon scraping against a metal pot. Argh~!

Rice paddles are traditionally wooden, but these days plastic is standard-issue. They’re easy to wash, but the one pet peeve I have is that it gets sticky with rice as soon as I use it. So wherever I put my paddle down, rice clumps are sure to follow.

That’s why I love this invention: the swinging rice paddle.

Now you need not worry about getting the kitchen counter sticky. Just lay the rice paddle down and it’ll sway around upright without falling over. Reminds me of those clown punching bags. And they come in all sorts of colors, so you’ll never get bored.

Yeah, I know some of you don’t see the big deal. Believe me, when you’re making a dozen rice balls at a time, there’s no time to wash and rewash things. So nothing beats having an accessible rice paddle. Just try it! (^_^)v
