I recently purchased this exact sushi press from a local Japanese market (Mitsuwa). This store chain is known for having a great selection of imported Asian foods and products, but their prices tend to be a bit high. It was $4.99 there. That's why I'm just baffled that these sellers have the nerve to sell this item for $6.00 PLUS another $6.00 for shipping. You'll end up spending about $12 for a simple plastic mold (this particular one was made in Taiwan, by the way).
Again, it is a great product that works EXACTLY as advertised - It really makes PERFECT spam musubis. But at least check out your local Asian/Japanese store first to see if they have any available. You have to go there for seaweed anyways, don't you? You might even be able to find yours for cheaper than $5. Of course, if you have absolutely no resources available in your area and you've been dying to make your own musubis, by all means - order this product here.
I'm not against the idea of a seller making a profit, but you have to know that they got this sushi press for maybe a dollar, and their actual shipping cost is another couple bucks at most. So charging $12 or more is just unreasonable. It always bugs me when sellers pad the shipping costs in an attempt to hide how much more money they're charging you. Ordering items on Amazon is always going to be a balancing between convenience and price. Just be aware that the TOTAL price here is quite high.
***UPDATE*** It seems more recent sellers have begun lowering their prices and shipping charges (Due to my complaining maybe? I swear, they were $6.99 + $6.50 shipping before). While the total cost is still far from cheap, it's nice to see things heading the right direction. I'll leave my original review up for the benefit of those who are reading this later on.
It's very easy to use. Just cut the nori to the width of the rectangular shaper and lay the center of the strip inside of the shaper. Place rice on top of the nori inside of the shaper and press. This compresses the rice adequately while allowing the sushi to keep a rectangular shape. Place the spam on top of that layer. Then add more rice and use the presser the top layer down. We found that to remove the shaper, we had to hold the presser on top while lifting the shaper up from the sushi. Finally, seal the nori on top.
The only other addition would be ideal nori length dimensions if you wanted to fill the entire shaper with rice/span/goodies. Of note is that you must wash the presser between each application as it retains rice, which is inherently sticky and the layer of water acts as a natural rice "repellent," allowing you to press another layer of rice without grabbing more when releasing.
