*2020* Exclusive supplier to James Martin
As seen on Islands to Highlands and the Saturday Morning Show
Some of the best Chefs in the world in the top Michelin starred restaurant's choose the traditonal Yakitori Grill over any other cooking method. Also known as a Konro or "Hibachi" Grill in the US, these grills can reach incredibly hot temperatures and stay hotter for longer...
"Absolutely Love your Grills"
Made from Diatomite (the fossilized remains of plankton) and mined traditionally by hand in Suzu Japan, the blocks are joined together without the use of mortar, for a stronger, tighter and more fire resistant finish. The Konro is then baked at 1,000 degrees for six hours making them extremely durable.

Of course you can use any charcoal in these incredible little grills but to really fulfill their potential and do them justice the preferred fuel is the revered Binchotan Charcoal. Specifically Kishu Binchotan, also known as Japanese white charcoal. Made from Ubame Oak (only found in Wakayama Prefecture Japan) it's production is an ancient art and it's popularity of late is fastly turning Bichotan in a precious commodity.
Unlike traditional 'Black Charcoal' the final stage of production involes heating the Ubame to an incredibly high temperature, burning off all impurities and leaving nothing but carbon. Rock hard, it gives off a metallic sheen and bears little in common with western style charcoal.
Besides it's rarity Binchotan is sought after because it produces a steady heat for a very, very long time! (upto 7 hours). The thermal insulation it provides through far-infrared radiation is superb and it burns cleanly, with no odour or smoke. This stuff is so clean it is widely used to purify water, it will not taint your food.
Once mastered it provides a very consistant and precise heat......
"When a meat’s fat and juices drip onto the binchotan, it creates a cloud of flavor that engulfs the food,” Ramirez says. “You don’t get the flare-ups you do with American charcoal, which create bitter, burnt flavors.” The result is distinct from meat cooked any other way: an even sear plus a whisper of smoke. “There’s a delicacy to Japanese grilling,” he says, “and chefs here are just catching on."

Chef James Martin
We've worked with James Martin for some years now. For his Excellent 2020 Island to Highlands series he wanted something that was easy to use, portable and durable. (without any chance of losing heat)
We were struck by how versatile he used the grill, often placing pans and baking trays onto the mesh and heating up the ingredients in no time at all...
Once only known to Chefs, the konro has gained a popular following of passionate foodies
James now has 3 different sizes. The Small, Medium and XL but often opts for the Medium when filming
