*Okunoto konro grills are renowned as the best konro grills in Japan. Beware of fake products.

This little Okunoto Hida konro grill made from diatom mud is ideal for 2 to 3 people. The grill is a mini version of the popular Okunoto konro grill. The grill is typically used by Japanese chefs to cook in front of their customers in a well-ventilated outdoor setting.

Okunoto Hida konro grills are available in two sizes. There is a 20cm model and a 28cm model. Both are small and come in different shapes - one square and one rectangular.

Okunoto grills are unique because they are made of diatom mud from the Noto Peninsula. This grill is perfect for binchotan, a Japanese white charcoal. A high and consistent temperature will enhance your BBQ experience.

What made Okunoto konro grills/hibachi grills so special?

Sometimes you can see Okunoto konro grills used in cooking competitions. These grills are also popular in Japanese barbeque restaurants.

The primary reason is the use of diatom mud from the Noto Peninsula of Ishikawa Prefecture. The Diatom mud from the Noto Peninsula is a great heat insulator, reflecting heat back onto the cooking surface. 

Using the Okunoto konro grill with Binchotan, the heat will be high, consistent, and concentrated. The result will be an exceptional barbeque experience.

The konro grill/hibachi grill is a good choice for grilling wagyu, yakitori, fish, vegetables and many other barbeque/BBQ recipes.  

Use and care:

  • To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, grill outdoors in well-ventilated areas.
  • Never put out the fire with water. When diatom mud absorbs water, it becomes brittle and loses its durability.
  • Remove the ash and food residue gently, but do not wash the grill with water.

The differences between konro, hibachi, and shichirin:

  • Grills are not called hibachi in Japan. The Japanese call them shichirin or konro instead.
  • The hibachi is a traditional Japanese heating device (fire bowl 火鉢 in Japanese). The shichirin is a small charcoal grill.
  • Konro grills are made from diatom mud (fossilised plankton remains) and are mined by hand in Japan. By using blocks instead of mortar, the structure becomes stronger, tighter, and more fireproof. A konro is then baked for six hours at 1,000 degrees, resulting in a product that is extremely durable.

The donabe charcoal extinguishing pot is ideal for extinguishing binchotan Japanese white charcoal and reusing it next time.
