Konro Grill, Table Barbecue 54 x 23 cm
Bring the flavour and atmosphere of Japan’s Izakaya bars to your home with the iconic Konro Grill. Designed with Yakitori (Skewers) in mind the narrow shape allows skewers to be suspended over the fire without a grill. The inclusion of a grill means you can cook just about over the flame, pots and pans can also be heated.
Konro Grills are constructed from diatomaceous earth, a sedimentary rock formed from the accumulation of fossilised silica remains of microscopic algae. The earth is moulded into bricks and kiln fired at 1000ºC. the porous nature of the earth creates highly effective thermal insulation and fire resistance. These properties, combined with the famous Binchotan charcoal, make the Konro Grill a powerful and theatrical way to barbecue.
Measures 54 x 23 x 20cm
Instructions for use:
Cover the base of your Konro grill with ignited Binchotan Charcoal
For more details on igniting and cooling Binchotan charcoal for re-use please see here
Open and close the air windows to reach desired temperature
Only use barbecue outside
Binchotan charcoal releases minimal smoke but cooking food, oil etc will release carbon monoxide which is lethal in indoor environments
Base of the grill becomes extremely hot; it must be placed on a fireproof surface
Burning charcoal can release sparks that travel to the area surrounding the grill
Barbeques become very hot, keep out of the reach of children, handle with care, place on a surface that will not burn
Allow grill and barbecue to cool before cleaning
Grill can be washed with dish detergent
Barbecue is made of earth so should not become wet; it can be brushed clean when cool.
Never pour water in the grill, it can crack
Never move grill when hot
Transport carefully as it can crack or break if mishandled
Store in a dry, well ventilated area – avoid damp storage
Small cracks appear in the earth after use as it heats and cools – this is normal, no cause for alarm and does not affect performance
