Perfect Roll Sushi Maker Review

I have been putting off this review for a while, as the past few times I’ve made sushi rice in preparation it has gone horribly wrong. Imagine rice porridge covered in soggy nori. Not nice.

But anyway onto the review!!

The smart looking Perfect Roll made by Leifheit and available from Wayfair claims to make sushi easy, and in all fairness it does make the rolling part easy. If only it helped cut the sushi ( this always goes wrong for me!!!)

Cost: 3/5
The Perfect Roll costs £15.99 £10.90 on sale at Wayfair, which if you make sushi quite often then it is worth it, however if you don’t make sushi that often it may be quite a splurge.

Ease Of Use: 5/5
This product is extremely easy to use, it comes with an included recipe book which has some great ideas as well as the best way to make sushi. It also comes with a “stencil” to help cut the nori to size.
All you need to do is cut the nori, fill the gadget with the nori, rice and fillings, clip one end of the “rolling sheet” over the sushi-to-be and pull the other end of the “rolling sheet” over and pull right. Done.

Style: 5/5
Available in 3 different colours this gadget looks very clean, professional and will look great in a multitude of kitchens.

Pros:
• Makes sushi quickly and simply.
• Looks professional and clean.
• A great alternative to the bamboo mat.
• Included stencil and recipe book.
• Can also be use to make deserts (arctic roll) and other canapés.
• Makes sushi the perfect size for bento.

Cons:
• Doesn’t cut the sushi ( this isn’t a realistic con, I’m just bitter I can’t cut sushi)

Disclaimer
I cannot cook sushi rice to save my life, nor can I cut sushi ( maybe it’s my knives ) so the poor look of the sushi is not a reflection of this product.

I received the product to review but no cash was exchanged, my review is my honest opinion and has not been swayed by the company or anyone else.

Here is a bento featuring the sushi I mangled made.

    • Thank you so much! It’s really simple!
      Just separate the egg white and yolk into separate bowls and mix in any spices etc.
      Then cook just the yolk ( or white if you want it the other way around) and roll it up then while the roll is still in the pan add the white ( or yolk) and continue rolling 🙂

  1. It is definitely the knife!! I could never cut sushi rolls, until I got a sushi/sashimi knife. Now it’s easy! Sushi rice is a breeze to cook, what brand do you use? And do you follow instruction from a sushi book? I learnt how to cook sushi rice from the YoSushi cookbook, and I get it perfect every time! Keep trying!
