Cube-Shaping Food Gadgets

Create Blocks of Rice Like a SousChef with the Rice Cube Kitchenware

— February 3, 2014 — Art & Design
The Rice Cube kitchenware gadget lets you serve the perfect sized amount of rice without all the effort and mess.

It’d be so cool if you could impress your friends the same way those sushi chefs impress you, and the Rice Cube makes it easy to whip together beautiful entrees without spending a lot of time on them. You can compress cubes into a meal using foods like rice, cheese and meatballs or opt for a sweeter version to make brownies, cakes and more. This is also fun for kids; have them help make meal preparation time playful and engaging. Children love eating food that isn’t conventionally shaped and it’s easy to sneak some peas or other vegetables inside the rice. Your skills will surpass any sushi artist or connoisseur, as long as you keep this knickknack in the kitchen.
