Of course rice gets its own serving spoon! This traditional rice scoop – or shamoji – is made from smooth and creamy maple wood, which is prized by woodworkers for its impressive durability. Traditionally used to serve rice family-style – and to stir vinegar into hot sushi rice – shamoji are made of wood, rather than metal, so they don’t smash or break individual rice grains. Small enough to fit little hands, this scoop-slash-paddle means no delicious morsels are left behind. Pro tip: Before scooping, soak the shamoji in water for a non-stick experience.
