Shichirin Table Barbecue 29cm x 25cm
Includes: Barbecue and grill
Suitably sized for table tops this barbecue allows diners to cook their own meat, fish and vegetables. Imagine a fondu but with fire! Made with diatomaceous earth, heat retention is high and infrared rays are emitted which provides even, fast cooking with less direct heat. Food cooks without the extreme heat from the fire which can reduce flavour.
Literally translated as “7 wheels” which describes its portability, the Schichirin was first used as room heater in the Edo period. They are now popular in Japanese homes, restaurants and especially Yakitori bars. Binchotan charcoal is recommend as this has a long burning time without reaching extremely high temperatures and emits little carbon monoxide.
Instructions for use:
Cover the base of your Shichirin grill with ignited Binchotan Charcoal
Open and close the air window to reach desired temperature
For more details on igniting and cooling Binchotan charcoal for re use please see here
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
