MULTIPURPOSE TABLETOP HIBACHI GRILL - Bringing a light, portable, and convenient Japanese-made hibachi grill to add to your BBQ set!

Project Overview

We are bringing a Japanese-made MULTIPURPOSE LIFTABLE TABLETOP HIBACHI GRILL to Kickstarter! Made in Tsubamesanjo in Niigata prefecture, it is a grill that is lightweight and allows you to easily add charcoal and grill dishes like skewers and kabobs!

Enjoy Grilling Kabobs and Yakitori(Appearing for the first time on Kickstarter!!)


Appearing for the first time on Kickstarter!! We’ve updated a function of the grill, adding a “kushi-dai”, a skewer stand/insert for yakitori, to the frame of the grate so you can make yakitori or kabobs without extra accessories! You also won’t have to worry about the meat sticking to the grate!

Yakitori is considered one of Japan’s soul foods. It originally was a food culture of not wasting anything, and coming up with a way to eat deliciously. For those who do not know, yakitori is pieces of chicken cut into bite-sized pieces on a skewer, that can be enjoyed either dipped in a special sauce (“tare”) or seasoned with salt. We have added a function to our grill allowing everyone abroad to grill and eat chicken skewers, “yakitori”, the Japanese way!

The main body color is available in matte black, a Kickstarter limited color!

Unlike ordinary paint, there is an unevenness on the painted surface which creates a dull/matted color due to the light reflected from various directions. It is finished in a color that has a stronger presence and impact compared to your regular glossy black. We created something that gives off a high quality look that will match with any tableware or BBQ tool!


Our company, Green Life Co., Ltd, is located in Tsubamesanjo, Niigata prefecture, which is about 300km/186miles north of Tokyo. Sanjo city is located practically in the center of Niigata prefecture, with a gross area of approx. 432km²/166 square miles and a population of about 95,000 people. In an area where manufacturing and craftsmanship has thrived since long ago, we have inherited the continued tradition of blacksmith technology from about 400 years ago while continuing to innovate to keep up with the changing times.


Tsubamesanjo is a town that is known for its craftsmanship, as well as its processing technology and industrial science that is used for metalworks such as tools, kitchen knives, and stainless steel. Our MULTIPURPOSE LIFTABLE TABLETOP HIBACHI GRILL was made by making the best use of that technology.

Project Details

More and more people are enjoying camping, having BBQs, and picnics, so for this project we planned and developed a product that takes away some of the negative sides of barbecuing allowing you to enjoy yourself among family and friends! We hope those who love a good home BBQ will be interested in our project!

It is really common to have a bunch of people come over for BBQs and home parties in America. Normally it’s the men who grills the big thick juicy steaks, hotdogs, ribs, etc., which can take 4~6 hrs depending on the method and what you’re cooking. Since many times you grill a variety of foods at the same time, most of the BBQ grills in America are on the bigger side, leaving smaller-scaled grills uncommon.

With corona virus issues we have had to cut back on gathering in groups and having parties, but with that our time at home has increased. So it might not seem worth it heating up a big grill just for a few people or even yourself.

Bigger grills naturally require a large amount of fuel such as charcoal, which means the clean up is just as timely.  Also the charcoals will make your hands or clothes get dirty and messy.

When adding charcoal to basic BBQ grills, using one hand, you first need to lift the grill grate with some tongs then pour the charcoal into the grill with the other hand. The setup requires both hands. If you need to add more charcoal while cooking (with food already on the grate), you risk the chance of your food toppling over if you don’t take them off the grate first and set them on some sort of plate. Which is a pain and only adds one more thing you will need to wash.


It would be nice to have something that gets rid of the tedious work necessary just to add more charcoal to your grill, wouldn’t it?


Our grill has a structure that can solve those problems!

Our products feature excellent technical abilities and advanced manufacturing equipment, that are in-house integrated productions from development, design, coating, painting, and assembly. From the product development design to prototyping, mold designing, and manufacturing, a system is arranged for all product development to be done in-house. 

We also do integrated production from metal pressing and plastic molding, to welding, coating, and assembly.

Our hibachi grill is compact, slim, and can be neatly stored!

It is also easy to carry, weighing just 2.5 kg/5.5lbs!

With conventional BBQ grills, to add charcoal while cooking you have to move the food onto a plate, take the grilling grate off with tongs, then add the charcoal. To limit the amount of work, we made the structure of this hibachi grill convenient and hassle-free!


Just by lifting the handle, you can easily move the grilling grate to add or remove charcoal without having to take anything off!

Another nice plus to this is, that by raising the handle to lift the grate, you are more in control of grilling the food, helping it from being overcooked or burnt!


When you raise the handle, the distance from the charcoal to the grate is roughly about 7cm/2.7”. So you can have a nice and relaxing BBQ~

① Standard BBQ Grill

Since the main body of the grill is a compact size, it is easy to think that it is too small, but rest assured you can still grill a good amount of food on it!

② Enjoy Grilling Kabobs and Yakitori(Appearing for the first time on Kickstarter!!)

Appearing for the first time on Kickstarter!! We’ve updated a function of the grill, adding a “kushi-dai”, a skewer stand/insert for yakitori, to the frame of the grate so you can make yakitori or kabobs without extra accessories! You also won’t have to worry about the meat sticking to the grate!


By removing the grilling grate you can BBQ kabobs and Japanese yakitori! There are horizontal bars that go across that allow you to grill yakitori without any additional attachments.


You can grill about 4 TO 5 SKEWERS AT A TIME! 

③ Japanese Style Grilled Fish

By taking off the grilling grate, you can also grill fish skewers over the fire pit!


By putting the skewers in the holes on the side of the plate, you can try this unique and traditional Japanese way of grilling fish! 

The main body of the grill has a thermal insulation structure, and its outside is insulated to keep heat from being transmitted to the surface.

The legs of the hibachi grill are made of a heat-resistant plastic that makes it difficult for heat to transfer, allowing you to have a BBQ even on a tabletop safely and securely!


The MULTIPURPOSE TABLETOP HIBACHI GRILL has a thin body and a height of 15 cm/5.9”!

Thanks to the height of the grilled surface being low, so this grill is very suitable for tabletop barbecue!

Also very recommended for BBQ picnics!

Our grill plays an excellent role in camping!

So next time you are out camping how about using this hibachi grill as a new way to cook?

NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS FOOD COOKED OVER CHARCOAL!

When it comes to barbequing, there has been a long debate over grilling with gas or charcoal, often dividing people into groups (pro propane vs pro charcoal). But barbequing with charcoal creates an unique aroma to the food, bringing out its wonderful flavor. The secret to its deliciousness is thanks to the far infrared rays that grills without losing the food's umami flavor.


EASY TO CLEAN UP AND PUT AWAY!


You can easily throw away the charcoal by holding the handle on both sides of the grill and pouring them out.


Having the handle allows it to be easy to grasp and carry!


SUPER EASY TO ASSEMBLE!

Our hibachi grill is also perfect for those who do not want to deal with complicated assembling.
