You can go either way with this versatile grill. Its rectangular shape makes it ideal for placing on a long table to be enjoyed by several people. The YAKINIKU Shichirin is also known as a Japanese table grill, Konro grill or Yakitori grill, but this grill also goes by the names Robata grill or Robatayaki. You can use the Konro grill indoors but preferably outdoors. The name Konro & Yakitori grill is originally Japanese. Konro is a grill that used to be made of diatomaceous earth. This material has a very low density, making it very heat-resistant. Nowadays, the grill is often made of other materials. Yakitori literally means yaki=grilling and tori=chicken. The name yakitori can therefore be translated almost directly into grilled chicken, but is nowadays more often used to refer to the preparation method: skewers are grilled over charcoal.
If you have become so enthusiastic and would like to buy a real traditional yakitori bbq, or buy the Konro grill, do not hesitate any longer! Check out the Robata grill at one of our dealers or order directly through our website!
You can easily place the Shichirin on large and smaller tables thanks to its rectangular shape. The Shichirin has a grill surface of 39x21 centimetres and is suitable for 2 to 6 people. If you are with 2 people, it is recommended to fill only half of the grill with charcoal.
Today, the YAKINIKU Shichirin is made of ceramic with quartz and cordierite. The ceramic makes the grill easy to clean and good to use even in winter. This is because the ceramic coating offers protection against all weather conditions.
The Shichirin has ventilation discs that allow you to influence the air circulation yourself. With good air circulation, you can reach high temperatures very easily.
You can prepare all kinds of dishes on our YAKINIKU Shichirin, feel free to take a look at our collection of Japanese dishes.
Expanding the Shichirin
Want to go for the full experience and imagine yourself in Japan for a moment with our table grill Add the YAKINIKU® Tweezers to your Shichirin! These tweezers will make grilling a lot easier. You use the straight tweezers to place raw fish or meat on the grill and the curved tweezers to remove your food from the grill. Of course, the tweezers are also suitable for vegetables.
You can also expand our Shichirin with the teppanyaki plate. Teppanyaki literally means grilling on an iron plate and is a very fine way of cooking. Fresh ingredients are brought into contact with a glowing plate as briefly as possible on a teppanyaki plate and seared at lightning speed, retaining their color, flavor and nutrients.
Yakitori bars are ideal for grilling Yakitori-style. These bars are made of stainless steel and you use on top of the rectangular Shichirin in combination with the BBQ skewers. Using these bars, you can very easily grill meat, fish and vegetables without compromising the taste of your food. When using the bars, you remove the grid and thus release more heat and smoke, intensifying your taste.
What type of charcoal should I use?
The YAKINIKU® Shichirin can only be used outdoors with briquettes, self-lighting briquettes or charcoal. The Japanese use Binchotan charcoal, the black gold of Japan, with which extremely high temperatures can be reached. This charcoal burns longer and at a higher temperature and is quieter than normal charcoal. For burning binchotan, it is best to first make a softer charcoal bed, e.g. with acacia charcoal. Then place the binchotan diagonally on the hot charcoal bed. This way you can light Binchotan easily. It is also possible to light Binchotan with a gas burner, which takes about 15 minutes. Because of the extremely high cooking temperature that the charcoal reaches, you get optimal results with food that stays deliciously juicy inside. A small amount of binchotan is enough to keep the shichirin going for hours.
The BBQ Flavour Quick-Koko briquettes have been specially developed for the Shichirin. The briquettes are made from natural materials and ensure that your Shichirin is ready for use within minutes. The lighter fuel is already included in them, so you don't need to use firelighters. One grill stone allows for an hour of cooking pleasure. The grill stones are individually packed in an airtight and watertight four-pack, making them easy to take along. Guaranteed barbecue fun!
