About Okunoto Hida Konro Grill / Hibachi Grill 28cm (2-3 People)

Okunoto konro grills are renowned as the best konro grills in Japan. Beware of fake products. A konro grill is always called a hibachi grill in Australia.

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.

Okunoto grills offer superior quality and performance than many other brands. Maintain the grill in a dry indoor environment and it will last for many years.

What made Okunoto konro 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 grill is a good choice for grilling wagyu, yakitori, fish, vegetables and many other barbeque recipes.  

Use and maintenance

  • Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Always grill outdoors in well-ventilated areas. 
  • Take proper care to extinguish the fire. Do not use water. If water is absorbed, diatom mud becomes brittle. It will also lose its durability.
  • When cleaning the grill, do not use water. Instead, gently remove the ash and food residue.

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.
