The Hibachi Tabo Grill cooking perfect skewers

 Hibachi grills have evolved from traditional Japanese heating devices into tabletop grills.

They can be made of different materials, including cast iron, stainless steel, and diatomaceous earth. Cast iron hibachi grills are favoured for their exceptional heat retention, which allows for consistent cooking temperatures.

Stainless steel hibachi grills offer durability, resistance to rust, and easy maintenance. Diatomaceous earth hibachi grills, often referred to as "hibachi konro," are made from a porous sedimentary rock material known as diatomaceous earth.

What you should look for when choosing your perfect Hibachi Grill


1. Material

One of the most important things to look for in an outdoor hibachi grill is the material it's made with. Some grills will be built using cast aluminium which corrodes over time, especially if not cared for properly.

Stainless Steel hibachi grills, on the other hand, offer durability and long-lasting use. The choice of materials for each type of grill is influenced by factors such as heat retention, durability, portability, and cooking performance.



The size of a hibachi grill should be considered because some areas around your home might have limited space. You'll want to ensure that the hibachi grill you purchase will fit into your outdoor environment. It should also be lightweight enough to either pick up and move or roll to the correct spot.



The capacity of a hibachi grill will determine how much food it can cook at once. This is particularly important when you're cooking for many people, such as during a party. Double hibachi grills can cook twice as much food as single ones, so you might want to remember this.



Hibachi grills should have vents on the side and back to help remove excess heat and smoke. If the vents aren't functioning correctly, they can cause the hibachi grill to become too hot and flame out. As you cook, your hibachi grill might cause flames to appear because of the high heat. However, you won't have to worry about this because the vents will always be able to remove the smoke.



Though it is not 100% necessary, the expert Japanese yakitori chefs strongly recommend using on binchotan, a dense white Japanese charcoal. This type of charcoal stays alight for 3-5 hours and can be reused several times.
