From miso soup to okonomiyaki savory pancakes or ramen noodles, one of the fundamental ingredients of Japanese cuisine is katsuobushi, the flakes of dried and smoked bonito or skipjack tuna. The problem is that even if you can get your hands on a supply of the fish, you also need a plane to make the flakes you will use in your dishes, and then a place to store them. The Smart Kezukiri Plane is the answer to your katsuobushi needs: combining a classic kashi (white Japanese oak) plane with a convenient plastic container, it allows you to make all the katsuobushi you need and store it very easily.
The Smart Kezukiri Plane comes in four different colors (cherry blossom pink, bamboo green, persimmon orange, or snow white) that will mean it fits in with almost any kitchen and the plastic parts can be washed in the dishwasher, making maintenance a matter of minutes. When you need to prepare katsuobushi, you just use the traditionally designed wooden plane and, after you are finished, remove the plane and use the lid to keep your flakes fresh until you need them. It's so simple to use that it will inspire you to cook Japanese every day!
