  Makisu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Japanese cooking, a makisu (巻き簾) is a mat woven from bamboo and cotton string that is used in food preparation.
Makisu are mostly commonly used to make a kind of rolled sushi called makizushi (巻き寿司),but they are also used to shape other soft foods such as omelets, and to squeeze excess liquid out of food.
After use, a makisu should be thoroughly air dried to avoid the growth of bacteria and fungi.
