Konro Comparison Guide: Find the Perfect Size of Grill for Yakitori & More

April 24, 2023 1 min read

Cooking over fire; the ancient tradition that gave Homo sapiens a jump-start. It’s still a ritual many of us practice in our own backyard every weekend. Thousands of years of evolution and ingenuity has yielded the ultimate way to cook over flame, Japanese Konro Grills. The Konro grill is highly insulated to focus the heat from the charcoal (ideally high-carbon Japanese Binchotan or Ogatan Charcoal) directly at your food, cooking it as efficiently as possible (If you want to learn more about them, check out our other blogs here).

Knowing which Konro to buy can be tricky, so the monkeys at Knifewear have put together this handy comparison chart to help you make the right choice.

Whether you want to skewer-it-up like a Yakitori chef or just grill a perfect medium-rare steak like Hank Hill, a Konro is the right way to go. Once you’ve got your grill selected, make sure you load up on charcoal, get yourself a starter and some skewers, and check out our video on how to use it.

Mason's job is to make Knifewear and Kent of Inglewood look cool. Which is an easier job than it looks (don't tell Kevin) since both are much cooler than Mason. He enjoys owning knives that make him feel like a much better cook than he actually is, and looking at razors that make him wish he shaved more than once every five years.
