Make your own gyoza

13 Comments

Bandai will release a gyoza (dumpling)-making machine, called the “Gyoza Maker Kururin Pao!” It allows you to create the perfect gyoza with the turn of a lever. All you need to do is spread the gyoza wrap on top of the roller, and on top of it, place a base with an opening in the center which allows you to include just the right amount of ingredients in the gyoza. The twirling of the lever turns the roller within the machine to produce a neatly wrapped gyoza.

The machine will be available in toy stores and department stores from July 25 at the suggested retail price of 3,150 yen.

Junk. You just fold the things in half. Japanese have way too much money to buy junk to fold a pre-made dumpling in half.

Bandai is a toy manufacturer. This is a toy for kiddies to 'help' on days when gyoza are on the menu. Getting kids to help make a meal is a great way to get them to eat foods they would otherwise turn their noses up at.

kids like to USE their hands though, so folding gyoza by hand is a far better lesson. These are the experiences you enjoy with your parents, ie: making cookie dough, pizza etc. This seems to take all the fun out of it :(

Need to see a TV Champion challenge on which produces the faster gyoza... Either by hand or with this little maker.

I agree with sf2k, but not all kids like to use their hands; if you've got a kid who's all left thumbs, or mechanically-minded, this little toy could come in handy. You choose your tools to suit the kid you have.

Kinda cool, but more fun with your hands. I created a great kogomi gyoza recipe this past san-sai season.

i enjoy sitting with the girl making Gyoza, but to tell you the truth, i would enjoy this machine for when i'm making them on my own. I don't make like 10 at a time, I like to make 50+ at a time and freee the rest, I don't want to have to keep going back to wrap more or do a bunch by hand, it gets old. This machine could speed up the process.

now for a machine that goes out and selects the ingredients, prepares them, and mixes them for me and we'll be set!

yep, this is an easy way to involve the kiddies. Price is kinda steep for a plastic roller...

Does it make folded gyoza or that big fat round kind (like PaoPao or that carry out place near the south exit inside Kyoto-station)?

Sorry, but we got a whole bunch of these "junks" at home. The ice cream maker, sushi-roller, gyoza-maker(not the roller in this article, but one that folds up to make the perfect gyoza!) and a sandwich sealer.

Most of them Christmas presents or something, so 3000 yen is nothing.

While I do all this with my own hands, the little ones enjoy helping out using these gadgets. We also use them for parties, and the kids love it. :)

I'm afraid this will take much longer to prepare a gyoza than in the traditional way :-)
