Kamado is the traditional Japanese ceramic oven which has been used for millennia to cook rice. In the ‘60s, these ovens inspired an American to create Kamado grills, which have since conquered the hearts of garden grill masters around the world. With the Kamado Grill 18, you will enjoy the benefits and secrets of the egg-shaped ceramic grill to your home. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never want to go back! The secret lies in the Kamado grill’s ceramic dome, which equips it with benefits other grills can’t begin to compete with.
The 2cm-thick ceramic wall has an enormous heat storage capacity, which absorbs heat for hours, distributes it evenly over the wall and releases it into the interior. Together with the air-tight lid, the grill uses very little fuel – usually more than 50% less than conventional grills – to reach temperatures between 110° and 400° C. In addition, the dome shape creates a warm suction like a conventional oven which can be controlled via the vent holes on the ground and in the cast iron forge. This makes it very easy to regulate the temperature inside, so you can not only grill normally on the Kamado Grill 18’s griddle, you can also slow cook for hours, bake bread and pizza, or – with the addition of aromatic wood chips – smoke. A thermometer on the lid always shows the temperature inside and facilitates the heat control.
The material and shape of the Kamado Grill 18 ceramic grill also keep the moisture inside, the grilling does not dry the food out even during long cooking processes. Long hours and still juicy when it hits the table. Become a master of the ‘Holy Trinity of BBQ’ by bringing spare ribs, beef brisket and pulled pork barbecue to new heights of deliciousness for your friends and family. You can also cook meat and sausages with the lid opened on the large 1600cm² grilling surface. Not only is the use of the Kamado Grill 18 a breeze, cleaning couldn’t be easier: the ceramic grill is self-cleaning. After use, it heats up to 350° C to burn away soot, grease and food debris inside without a trace.
Two retractable shelves made of bamboo on the left and right of the grill dome offer plenty of storage space, so you always have a place to put your ingredients, utensils or drink. Its stainless steel frame provides the Kamado with a secure stand and allows you to raise it to a comfortable working height. It is also equipped with four heavy-duty castors to move it with little trouble. So that nothing rolls while you are grilling, two of the wheels have brakes.
Visually, the Kamado Grill 18 is a perfect centrepiece for any garden party: the glazed black dome, the gleaming stainless steel and bamboo guarantee that the attention of your guests will be drawn to more than just the Klarstein ceramic grill’s delicious food.
The thick ceramic is very durable but, of course you should try to avoid banging it (for example slamming down the lid) as it can break under such force. The ceramic will craze in time and occasionally chip, but this doesn’t affect the structural integrity and your cooking enjoyment.
When your Kamado is delivered it will be on a kerbside pallet delivery service, It weighs about 80kg altogether so you may need to enlist a helper to lift the Ceramic into the cart initially. (once in though it is easy to move on the good quality wheels)
