FOLLOW UP: I have had this grill now for over a year and I still like it. I think a few follow up comments are in order. The grill comes with a clay disc perforated with numerous 3/4" holes that sits on a small ledge at the bottom of the grill. This is what the briquets sit on and through which air passes from the side vent. It is somewhat fragile. Once I was gently tipping the grill over on soft grass to pour out the ashes and the disc rolled out onto the grass and broke in half. No way such a gentle impact should have caused it to break. However, the customer service was excellent and the vendor promptly sent me a new disc at no charge. However, the two broken halves are still serviceable since they can be fitted together and placed in the bottom of the grill like before. HOWEVER, I noticed that my coals seemed to lose heat and not burn hot as soon as I poured them into the grill from my charcoal chimney. It was frustrating to pour in blazing charcoal and then for them to quickly lose heat so much that I couldn't even sear a steak. Things took forever to cook. It finally occurred to me that the clay disc is blocking a lot of air that otherwise would pass through the typical wire grate that most grills have. Even with the perforations, the clay disc is mostly opaque. The material to space ratio is probably 60-40 which blocks a lot of air. I had an epiphany and decided to use the wire trivet that came with my Rival model 3100 crockpot. This is the classic original crockpot. It came with a trivet to use in the bottom of the crockpot. The trivet fits almost perfectly where the clay disc sits. You just have to bend the three wire footings inward slightly. Let me tell you. IT MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE. Now the material to space ratio is around 5 to 95. Tiny pieces of hot charcoals can now fall down under the trivet and continue to work their magic while the larger hot coals blaze away above. It's like night and day. So if your Yakatori grill just doesn't seem hot enough, try to get this trivet. I found another one at a thrift store for 25cents recently or maybe you can order one from Rival in Kansas City. Or maybe Amazon carries it although it is an obscure part. It is an old crockpot and I don't know if the part is still available but you may be able to get one from Rival for a few dollars. If you go to enough thrift stores often enough, you WILL find one eventually for practically nothing.
P.S. I mentioned in my original post that spring clamps were necessary to keep the Weber Sear grate from sliding around. This is false. The sear grate is heavy enough so that it sits on the grill without movement and no clamps are needed
Fire Sense sent replacement grids!
Update #3 STARTING TO FAIL
The ceramic "grates" that hold the charcoal are starting to break up. It cooks very well, but the quality of the materials is not great.
Still loving this little grill. Over the weekend I made a "riser" to get the grill a bit higher off the charcoal since if you cook fatty foods, the flare ups tend to singe things (or I could just LEARN something from the Japanese and stop cooking fatty food).
So far there have been no issues with the plastic edging melting or with the vent doors. I do not expect this to be the longest lived grill I have ever had, but the results can be spectacular.
Last night we did chunks of marinated chicken thigh on skewers which came off tasting better than most restaurant foods. Got a crispy char along with moist meat. I was sure to skin the meet to avoid flareups though.
Loving this hibachi a lot after using it for a couple of months. It does a fantastic job with chicken, fish and lean meat. Because of the way the heat is insulated and funneled "up", the sear on food is excellent.
No issues with durability, but we do put it away every evening after use. The thin metal vents are still holding up as is the plastic trim.
The rack is losing its chrome finish to reveal a solid copper construction. Not stainless as advertised, but good enough.
An added advantage is that the rack has a fence aruond it that keeps food from slipping off when using a spatula.
Stil loving it.
I bought this as an addition to our Lodge Cast Iron Sportsman Grill, and I am very happy with it after grilling, beef, chicken, pork and fish, this is a great little grill.
And since I am one frugal SOB, I love it doubly for how little charcoal it requires to cook a meal for four people. In general about 16-20 briquets will cook all the meat (and even extrs) for a group of four folks. Our Sportsman grill literally takes 5x that much for the same result because while you lose a TON of heat through the cast iron of the Sportsman, the clay body of the Fire Sense is an insulator any the fuel is not wasted.
The Fire Sense does indeed seem to focus the heat up for a fantastic sear on food and a wonderful smokey flavor.
Yes, this is a very inexpensively made grill. The vents are thin metal that you have to be careful with, the "bumpers" areoun the upper rim are all cheap plastic and the grill surface is a little "light",
Please note that on mine, the grill grate is all stainless and cleans up easily. Mine is NOT painted as others have noted.
The body of the grill is unfired clay that was made in a mould and then the vents and bumbers were stapled (yes stapled) into the clay before it was fully dry. This means that if you leave it out in thhe weather, it WILL disintegrate. Don't while, just empty the ashes after each use and put it away carefully. I suspect that it is about as durable as a red clay flower pot. .
Overall this grill makes great tasting food, really quickly with almost NO charcoal.
- Fantastic heat for a great sear (you do need to watch it when you are first using it)
- Cheap on charcoal. One Costco bag looks to last us most of the season
- Wonderful smoky flavor to the good
- Easy clean up of the cooking grid so far
- Inexpensive overall (but should be cheaper du to the minimal manufacturing costs)
- Light weight
- Comes with a neat"handling rack" so you can move it, even when hot
- FANTASTICALLY well packaged for shipping. (seriously, this is important. I HATE it when stuff arrives in the "store box" and is in pieces).
- Really inexpensive construction
- Unfired clay body has about the same durability as a flowerpot
- Feels like the vents will not last too long (so quit fooling with them)
- Having the parts stapled into the clay is really odd
Get one and grill.
It fed my family of 4 and everyone enjoyed the Japanese sausages, chicken wings, pork, shrimp, bacon wrapped mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and scallions (also get a pack of 200 paddle skewers). We can't wait to cook again with different meats/seafood/veggies and will definitely make sure we have s'more supplies (I think it'll be fun to take off the grate and roast marshmallows with the kids).
I'll make sure I keep this grill indoors when not in use. I've read some reviews about the grill disintegrating in the rain but for $40 it can't be beat. Other konro grills this size start at $199 and go upwards to $599 depending on size and manufacturer. I'm sure they're more durable but with a heftier price tag it better be. I've eaten yakitori off my friend's authentic konro grill (for $299) and I have to say I couldn't tell the difference in the taste of the food. All you need is some kosher salt and ponzu for flavoring.
Enjoy and happy grilling!
