The Wall Street Journal compared and rated sushi baskets based on products, utensils, and instructions using members of the Wall Street Journal staff and two master sushi chefs. In the article 'Sushi Rolls Into the Home', they state 'If we're going to the effort to make sushi at home, we want lots of possibilities.' They also state, 'The sushi basket from Eden Foods had enough extra elements to provide hours of experimentation - a shake-bottle of sesame seeds, Japanese pickles, and even special noodles that could be used in place of rice.' They further state, 'The kit was impressive, from a sturdy mat' to the 'step-by-step instructions, illustrated with color photos. It's our Best Overall. Our rolls came out tight and attractive thanks to the sturdy mat and good color-photo instructions.'

Lundberg™ Organic Sushi Rice - California Lundberg™ sushi rice, the only organic sushi rice in North America.
Organic Eden Soba (Buckwheat) Noodles - Organic Canadian sifted spring wheat flour 70%, and organic Canadian whole grain buckwheat flour 30%; warming, traditional healthy noodles.
Eden Wasabi Powder - A rare wasabi containing real wasabi (Japanese horseradish) root, highly valued not only for its fiery flavor but for its healthy, protective qualities. Hot and stimulating. No artificial colors or additives. Mix a teaspoonful with a bit of hot water to make a thick wasabi paste, a staple condiment for sushi, and a versatile spice.
Eden Shake (furikake) - A table condiment of toasted tan and black sesame seed, green nori flakes, and flaked dried pickled red shiso (beefsteak) leaves. Ideal for making California Roll sushi (reverse sushi), and sprinkled over whole grain, noodles, vegetables, and popped corn. Enhance salad dressings, vinaigrettes and dips. Timelessly popular.
Eden Pickled Ginger Slices - Thinly sliced fresh ginger root traditionally pickled with red shiso (beefsteak) leaves. All natural ingredients; no red dye, preservatives, or refined sugars that are in commercial sushi bar varieties. Always served with sushi and great with vegetables, grains, and fish.
Eden Brown Rice Vinegar - Made using a slow, 1,000 year-old method. Organic brown rice, koji, Aspergillus oryzae, and spring water are blended in clay crocks and aged six to eight months. A sweet essence enhances almost any food, and it is essential in sushi rice. 4.5 percent acidity. Refillable, protective amber glass bottle with a functional dispenser cap. Great chefs insist on this traditional brew.
Eden Mirin (sweet rice cooking wine) - Essential to providing the appealing sheen and sweet flavor of good sushi rice. A golden, mildly sweet liquid seasoning used to balance the salty flavors of soy sauce or miso in Japanese cuisine. This is the highest quality mirin, called 'Ajino-haha' in Japan. Made only with rice, koji Aspergillus oryzae, water, and sea salt. Naturally, traditionally fermented.
Eden Sushi Nori - A sweet mild tasting sea vegetable cultivated in the environmentally protected shore of Ise Bay, Japan, well up-current from Fukushima. The finest grade sushi nori, hand harvested, and sea shore dried. Toasted sheets, ready to roll sushi, nori rolls, and rice balls. Nori is by far the most popular seaweed worldwide.
Eden Selected Shoyu Soy Sauce - Made of Non-GMO verified organic soybeans and organic whole wheat by shoyu brewing masters skilled in the ancient traditions. Aged in wood casks for two years. Refillable amber glass bottle with a functional dispenser cap that delivers 'drops' or 'pours' as desired.
Eden Umeboshi Paste - A tangy, sour condiment made of pureed, traditionally made pickled umeboshi plum. Ideal for sushi, dips, sauces, salad dressing, and seasoning vegetables.
Eden Bamboo Sushi Mat - An essential sushi tool made of thick strips of untreated bamboo tied together with wax free cotton string: versatile and durable mat used to roll sushi. It can be used to store rolled sushi before cutting, allowing the roll to season while preventing it from drying out. It is a good cover for cooked food, or as a handsome protective mat for hot dishes on the table. Recent studies of cooked food exposed to long term wrapping in plastic showed chemical absorption, especially in warm foods. Wood allows food to breathe without causing condensation that detracts from the favor and promotes spoilage. Extra mats are nice to have.
