Makisu, onisudare / bamboo rolling mats

Top: Makisu
Bottom: Onisudare

Rolling sushi probably is the most common usage of makisu. It is also used to stabilize the shape of dashimaki tamago omelet and to form tube-/platform-shaped items. In a more practical use, it is used as a strainer by spreading and placing it on top of a bowl.

Onisudare is mainly used to prepare datemaki rolled seafood omelet for the New Year. The deep notches leave zigzag marks on surfaces for a decorative purpose.
