Japanese Sushi Gloves
Wrote Philadelphia chef-consultant Aliza Green in a June 12 Washington Post story, "Hiroyuki 'Zama' Tanaka [top], owner of Zama Sushi in Philadelphia, says 'using gloves is a big revolution for the sushi industry as it goes against tradition. It took a few months to get comfortable working with gloves on, but I've been working with them now for 12 years. It's easier to train someone, because the special Japanese sushi gloves I use — Emboss Five-Finger Squeeze Gloves — have a textured surface that actually makes it easier to work with sushi rice and raw fish.'"
Green added, "Japanese polyethylene sushi gloves are designed to snugly fit the tip of the finger and 'squeeze' around the bottoms of the fingers, preventing the gloves from slipping off. These sushi gloves have a slightly roughened surface which helps keep the rice from sticking to the hands and helps maintain a good grip on the knife and the product."
