Why buy an original Japanese konro grill?

You also come across the konro under the name hibachi or shichrin. So do you want the real thing? Then choose "Made in Japan" because only then you have the best quality on your table.

The history of the Japanese grill

The Japanese table grill was obviously developed in Japan in the 18th century. At first, the grates of this grill were used as heating devices. Later, people discovered that the grates could not only serve as heaters but were also ideal for preparing Yakitori and other foods.

The original Japanese grill is made of diatomaceous earth. This material can withstand extreme heat and holds that heat extremely well. When you use the Japanese table grill, the meat is placed only a few inches above the charcoal. This causes the juices of the meat to drip onto the grill and evaporate incredibly quickly. This vapor then soaks into the meat and this gives the meat a delicious smoky flavor.

The Japanese grill is not only suitable for Yakitori, you can also prepare hell other types of meat, fish or vegetables on it. This grill gives all your meat or fish a delicious grill flavor. This grill uses only the most special type of charcoal in the world: Binchotan charcoal.

Using Binchotan charcoal

When you start using the Japanese grill, you need a special type of charcoal: Binchotan charcoal. This charcoal is made from a special Japanese oak, the Ubame oak. This charcoal is only produced in southwestern Japan. By locals here, the charcoal is made by hand in large clay kilns. Then, with the help of kilns, they pull the moisture out of the wood very slowly. This process takes 14 days. This makes the charcoal extremely hard, which is why you can grill much longer with this hard charcoal than with any other charcoal. Because of this process, real Japanese Binchotan is very expensive and exclusive. It's almost impossible to get even. Therefore, we sell various alternatives from Thailand or Indonesia.
