Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen Bamboo Rice Paddle, 9-inch
RICE PADDLE BAMBOO 9"
Helen's Asian Kitchen 9 rice paddle is stronger than wood and will not swell, split, or absorb moisture. This burnished bamboo spoon is wide and flat, ideal for scooping rice and patting it into mounds for serving or flat for sushi rolling. Safe for use on non-stick surfaces or in high-heat. The bamboo is treated through a special oven-roasting process which caramelizes the sugar in the bamboo, resulting in its beautiful honey color. Bamboo is one of the most renewable resources known. It is more durable and 16% harder than maple, and a third lighter in weight than oak. Dishwasher safe.
Thanks to its hardy bamboo materials, this rice paddle from Helen's Asian Kitchen is durable, lightweight, and resistant to moisture. Shaped with a wide shallow bowl, the piece scoops rice without mashing it and doubles as a spreader when making maki-zushi. Gentle on cookware, the paddle does not scratch nonstick or porcelain rice cookers and cleans up by hand or in the dishwasher. It measures 9 inches and coordinates with turners and spatulas from Helen's Asian Kitchen line. --Emily Bedard
