    A lot of my readers have been asking me about the wooden Onigirazu Mold (Onigirazu Maker) that I’ve been using for my recipes and here’s what I use.

    Wooden Onigirazu Mold

    Mark, one of JOC readers from Oregon, kindly sent me this beautiful onigirazu mold that he handcrafted as a gift. It’s made of Port Orford cedar and there is not a single nail used in this mold! The cedar smells amazing (reminds me of cedar products in Japan) and this mold has been so useful to make my children’s Onigirazu lunch often. Thank you Mark!


    I received many requests from JOC fans about Mark’s mold, and I’m happy to tell you that he now started to sell his handcrafted mold to people who are interested in his mold! A plastic mold has a reasonable price but might break one day; however, this wooden mold will last to next generation if you take good care of it. You’ll love the texture, smell of the wood, and functionality! If you’re interested in purchasing or asking him a question, please go to his Etsy site Mark’s Wood Crafts.

    With the mold, you can portion control the amount of rice and filling. Without it, I often add way too much rice and filling and I struggle to wrap the nori around nicely. As you see in Step 7, the rice and filling is already packed tightly, so it’s much easier to wrap the rice and filling with nori sheet.

    Onigirazu mold is not necessary to make onigirazu as I’ve demonstrated in my Chicken Katsu Onigirazu and Bulgogi Onigirazu recipes, but the mold definitely helps remind me to control the amount of the filling I add and to maintain the shape of the rice so that I can make a good-looking onigirazu!
