Japanese Konro Grill User Guide

Before you start
  • THIS GRILL IS FOR OUTDOOR USE
  • Use enough charcoal to cover the bottom of the grill in one layer. Do not overfill the grill with charcoal as the fire will become too hot.
Lighting the charcoal
  • Place liquid fuel or solid fuel packet(s) in the grill and light. Use metal tongs to build a small mound of charcoal around and on top of the lit fuel packet(s).
  • When the charcoal is clearly lit (red and glowing on half the surface area) spread out the lit coals to cover the bottom of the grill evenly.
  • Charcoal can also be lit outside of the konro over a gas flame using a charcoal starter or a cooking net. A cooking torch, charcoal chimney, or electric charcoal starter can also be used to start charcoal.
Regulating the fire
  • You can regulate the strength of the fire by opening or closing the sliding air window. Opening the window will increase the airflow and make the coals burn hotter.
  • The metal parts of the konro will become hot during use. Use a protective glove or oven mitt and extreme caution when handling.
  • When you are finished
  • When you are finished using the grill, wait for the coals to burn out completely before discarding OR remove burning coals into a fireproof container and extinguish with sand.
  • NEVER POUR WATER INTO THE KONRO GRILL.
  • When the grill has cooled, wipe the inside of the grill with a moist rag or paper towel to clean.
  • MAKE SURE GRILL HAS COOLED COMPLETELY BEFORE STORING.
Cleaning
  • Do not pour water directly into or onto the grill! If the konro grill accidentally gets wet, dry completely before storing and before next use.
  • As the bottom of the konro will get very hot during cooking, do not use konro on top of flammable materials such as a carpet, tarp or mat and do not allow the bottom of the konro to come in direct contact with such materials. To prevent charring, scorching or warping of surfaces, use a fire resistant base or board under the konro.
  • Do not move the grill while in use.
  • Do not leave konro and lit charcoal unattended.
  • Do not drop the konro!
