About Ise Mizu Donabe Konro Grill / Hibachi Grill Size 10 (2-4 People) Khaki

The donabe konro grill is a combination of a Japanese clay pot and insulated material that allows for a Japanese barbeque in a small open space. A konro grill is always called a hibachi grill in Australia.

Simply place clean water in the bottom of the main unit and then use a trivet for Japanese binchotan (white charcoal). Place the mesh on top. This combination allows the slow and even release of heat.

The product includes a wooden base, the donabe (main body), a trivet and a 29cm reusable round mesh. Using the trivet for a period of time will eventually cause it to crack. Replacement trivets are available. Replace it once it cracks.

You can buy a spare reusable or disposable round mesh on our website. Additional trivets are available for purchase as well.

How to use a donabe konro grill / hibachi grill?

  1. Place the main body of the stove on the base and add water (about 2cm deep).
  2. You can find instructions on how to light up binchotan in the user guide. The blowtorch method and start pan method are recommended.
  3. When the charcoal burns, place the trivet on top of the main unit and then cover the donabe with the 29cm reusable round metal mesh.

Use and maintenance:

  • Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Always grill outdoors in well-ventilated areas.
  • Place a heat resistant mat under the grill to avoid heating the surface underneath.
  • Do not extinguish the fire with water.
  • When you are finished using the grill, wait for the coals to burn out completely.
  • Users may simply place the binchotan white charcoal into a Japanese charcoal extinguishing pot. The is a great pot to allow us to reuse binchotan. Simply place the binchotan white charcoal into the pot and covered with lid. The charcoal would extinguish because of lack of oxygen.
  • Let the donabe grill cool down, and then wash it with warm water. Do not submerse the grill in water.
  • Do not wash the trivet with water. You may gently remove the ash and food residue with a sponge or brush, but avoid washing the trivet with water.

The differences between konro grill and hibachi grill:

  • In Japan, hibachis are not really used for grilling.
  • A hibachi is a small indoor heater. It is called fire bowl (火鉢) in Japanese. 
  • See the package of the popular Okunoto Japanese grill. You will see 炭火バーベキューコンロ. This translates as "charcoal barbecue konro."
  • Japanese grills are known as konro grills. There are no hibachi grills in Japan.
  • Please be sure to read the entire instruction manual before the first use. The product comes with a QR Code for our online user guide in English.
