* An at-home sushi maker for under $10
* The Sushi Bazooka crafts perfect rice rolls filled with fresh fish
* Join the sushi revolution with this ridiculous but genius tool
This just might be the most hilarious and fitting gift for die-hard ‘fishionados’ who wake up dreaming of sushi for breakfast and may even wear this fragrance inspired by their favorite fresh dish. In the past, we have rounded up awesome gifts for sushi-lovers but this is the best find for people who want to prepare and serve their very own sushi rolls at home. The nifty gadget is a plastic tube that opens in the center and can be filled with white or brown rice and your favorite sushi fillings—from fresh salmon to cream cheese and crab.
Step 1. Place each side of the loading tray with sticky rice and pat down for a tightly packed surface.
Step 2. Place sliced ingredients (vegetables, fresh fish, tempura, or ginger) along each side of the tray on top of the rice.
Step 3. Place the plastic wand device at the top of the tray and close the lid over ingredients, placing the included cap on the opposite end of the device.
Step 4. Lay a sheet of seaweed down on the counter and then push the wand device into the Sushi Bazooka and watch your roll squeeze out onto the seaweed.
Step 5. Roll the seaweed around the rice roll and slice into bite-size sushi pieces for a ready-to-eat Japanese meal.

It may not be the traditional way of making sushi but it offers a pretty quick—and much more affordable—option to sushi addicts and curious foodies. The Sushi Bazooka is BPA-free and easy to clean (dishwasher safe).
