HANGIRI WOODEN SUSHI BOWL - USE & CARE

Thanks to the popularity of sushi all over the world, one of our best sellings are Hangiri sushi bowls and they are used for preparing sushi rice.

 

High-grade Hangiri is made of Japanese Sawara cypress which is durable and proof against water.

 

BEFORE THE FIRST USE
To reduce the pine tar and bitterness of wood.
Fill the wooden bowl with hot water. Add 180ml of vinegar into the water and leave until it gets cold (2-3 hours).
Wash the bowl in water. The bowl should be dried promptly with a soft tea towel after washing.

 

BEFORE EVERY USE
Wet the inside of the bowl and dry lightly with a soft tea towel (or wipe the inside of the bowl with a damp cloth to moisten it slightly).
By doing so, it prevents discoloration of the bowl and also prevents the transfer of smells from the foods.

 

AFTER USE
Fill the Hangiri with water straight away and clean with a soft brush to remove the rice and any residue left on the bowl.
Wash the bowl in water/soapy water. Do not use harsh detergents or bleaching agents.
The bowl should be dried promptly with a soft tea towel after washing.
Store in a dry area away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. 

 

CARE
Do not soak for a long time, otherwise it would cause the mould growth.
If the wooden bowl appears discoloured, use lemon juice solution to brighten the colour.
If you are not planning to use the Hangiri for a while, air dry the bowl well and cover with a plastic bag to store, as over-drying would cause the bowl to crack.

  • Hello Shelley!
    Thank you for your response!
    Please try this vinegar and salt (or Sodium bicarbonate/baking soda) solution to clean your copper bands.
    First, mix white vinegar and table salt, and rub your copper bands with this paste using a cloth or a toothbrush. Then, rinse off and wipe dry.
    We hope this solution will work for you. Good luck!

  • Hi there,
    The copper bands on my hangiri have tarnished in small spots. Can I clean the copper bands?
