About Okunoto Japanese Konro Grill / Hibachi Grill 31cm Starter Set (2-4 People)

The starter set includes: 

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

These konro grills are unique because they use diatom mud from Noto Peninsula combined with traditional techniques from Okunoto. This grill is perfect with binchotan, a Japanese white charcoal. The core temperature can reach up to 1200 degrees.

The exterior will remain relatively cool due to excellent heat insulation. The high and consistent heat will make your BBQ/barbeque experience exceptional.

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. The walls are over 5cm thick. 

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 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.
  • We are unable to ship this item to New Zealand due to its fragility.
  • 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.
