Azmaya, Rice Scoop
Wooden rice scoop based on a Japanese “shamoji”. Traditional shamoji wood scoops are used to stir, serve and add vinegar to sushi rice.
If you soak it in water for a while before using it, freshly cooked rice should not stick to it and you can clean it. After use, wash it to remove the grains of rice, wipe off the water, dry it well and store it to keep it looking beautiful for a long time. The wood doesn’t scratch pots or rice cookers.
