The Kasai Konro grill is our newest addition to the family, with its
stainless steel frame it makes it perfect for both home use and
the rigours of a professional kitchen. It is the perfect size for any
surface due to its compact design. It offers more versatility, better
flavour and a more enjoyable cooking experience than you would
ever imagine. It is the ultimate sous vide finishing tool, and believe
us we have tried a lot of sous vide cooked food.
If you have ever travelled to Japan, you would have seen one
of these small style BBQs on just about every street corner.
Particularly as you walk around the entertainment quarter of
Osaka (Dontonbori near Namba station) you will find a Konro at
almost every restaurant with an expert operator twisting Yakitori
skewers or some other delicious morsels.
The Konro is probably better known in the west as a Hibachi grill,
but in Japan it is called Shichirin or Konro. It’s a bit complicated,
but the Shichirin and Konro names probably evolved when these
small clay or ceramic fire boxes started getting used for cooking
instead of just heating.
Hibachi were originally developed in around the 8th century
A.D. and their original purpose was to act as a small room heater.
My guess is that they became a poor man’s Kamado or cooking
range, like those cheap electric hot plates are today. Over time
it was discovered that they were great for cooking Yakitori and
other smaller food items and so they were rebranded or renamed
Konro or Shichirin.
The Konro grills are the best thing to use when grilling meats, fish
or vegetables. Recommended to use with Binchotan charcoal
due to its long burning properties and its ability to seal in natural
flavours without imparting any other aromas.
The Konro grills are made with a special insulating material that
helps reflect heat back into the grill thus making the temperatures
more consistent. A simple design with metal corners and an air
vent to control temperature.
This is a compact and simple charcoal grill that is made using a
natural material that optimises heat retention. Because these
grills have superior heat-insulation properties, charcoal used in
them starts easily and burns longer than in conventional cookers.
Nothing tastes quite like charcoal grilled chicken skewers or
yakitori. Now you can make delicious yakitori and other grilled
dishes anytime with this convenient Japanese style charcoal
grill. With decent quality lump charcoal or Binchotan a Konro
produces a very hot source of heat (750°C). The compact size and
shape and the firebrick/ceramic construction makes these grills
perfect for cooking skews of meat or sliced vegetables. The food
is inches away from the charcoal and the juice that drips down
is instantly evaporated into a smoky cloud of deliciousness that
infuses with the food on the grill. The hot temperature is also
perfect for creating crisp caramelised skins on chicken and other
meats. Makes food taste great!
