Safety Instructions

  • Only use this BBQ outside
  • Binchotan charcoal releases minimal smoke, but cooking food, oil etc will release carbon monoxide which is lethal in indoor environments 
  • The base of the grill becomes extremely hot so it must be placed on a fireproof surface
  • Burning charcoal may release sparks that could travel to the area surrounding the grill so please cook with care
  • Barbeques become very hot. Keep out of the reach of children (and over-enthusiastic adults). Handle with care at all times.
  • Allow grill and barbecue to cool before cleaning
  • The grill top can be washed with dish detergent
  • The BBQ is made of natural earth so should NEVER become wet. It can be brushed clean when cool.
  • Never pour water in the grill as it can easily crack with the change in temperature and with moisture
  • Never move grill when hot
  • Transport carefully as this range can crack or break if mishandled
  • Store in a dry, well ventilated area – avoid damp storage
  • Small cracks will appear in the  diatomite earth after use as it heats and cools. This is normal and doesn't not affect the BBQ's performance.
  • Enjoy the quality of this traditional cooking technique.
