    How does this compare to the 10kg for $17.99 Koshihikari rice that you can find at Spud Shed that is Made in Vietnam?

      Vietnam is second best for Japanese rice (outside of Japan) imo. You'll notice if you cook it right, not as much if you don't.

    Don't rinse the rice after cooking ok? No colander.

      Uncle Roger approved!

        Rice or you?

    •  

      I think koshikari is the strain of rice grain that's normally used to market as sushi rice in the west.

      "Sushi rice" is not a strain of rice. The "sushi rice" marketed in Australia is usually koshihikari.

    don't use a colander.

    Have been tempted to try this but can’t get over the price!

  •  

    I think cheaper at an asian grocery, if you want to get 10kg or 20kg

    •  

      Most from Asian grocery are not product of Japan.

    Will it fall through the holes in my colander?

    Not trying to compare…
    Just letting you know
    Australian SunRice Koshihikari Rice is half price if you buy bigger bag - last time I saw 20kg for ~$57 in an Asian grocery store.
