Sushi Rice Now With More Fun

Inomata Sushi Mold Rice Ball Maker

Plain white rice can be so… plain. While that can be good for everything from digestion to how awesome it works with practically any other ingredient, it’s how it’s served that could use a little sprucing up. Especially when we’re talking about exceedingly cute hearts, stars and bears.

The Inomata Sushi Mold Rice Ball Maker transforms everyday boring sushi into exciting fun-shaped sushi you can play with. Place rice into the mold, cover, press and then push it out—your fish won’t know what hit it. Although that salmon nigiri might have an inkling when it sees that bear coming at it.

Space pancakes in space

Outer Space Pancake Molds

The nascent space tourism industry needs to get a few things straight before it really gets off the ground. First, lower the prices. Second do breakfast right. Earthbound hotels often offer a ‘continental breakfast’ consisting of coffee or tea, fruit, and a baked roll or pastry of some sort. We can do better. We can give a little something extra. We can have ‘extra-continental’.

Seeing as anyone staying at a space hotel would be off of all the continents, it would make sense to go the extra mile. Like free pancakes included with the morning meal. And of course, they have to be space pancakes. These NASA-designed inspired Outer Space Pancake Molds would do quite nicely. I’ll even bring them right over. Just send a ship, please.

Please hold the mustard with Cakewich

Cakewich from Fred & Friends

Peanut butter and jelly not sweet enough for ya? Instead of topping it with sugar, try using cake instead of bread. Sure, good ol’ white bread might as well be made with sugar, but sometimes it’s best just to cut to the chase. The Cakewich from Fred & Friends is a silicone baking pan shaped to look like sliced bread. Bake, slice and fill with your favorite sweet treats. Just be forewarned if you have a penchant for chocolate cake—somehow I don’t think adding turkey will too well mimic a turkey on dark rye.

If you believe a certain pizza chain, bread bowls make pasta better.

The Better Baker Loaf Bowl is a mold designed to produce breads already in the shape of a bowl. No need to scoop out the inside of a loaf of bread (and then wonder what to do with it) when using this kitchen gadget. Just bake, fill and enjoy—with or without the carb explosion.
