Kamado is a word of Japanese origin, meaning a system of cooking in which a clay or ceramic cooker is used. In the past, they were made from mud, clay and later cement, and used natural resources as fuel, such as stones, wood or coal. Modern Kamado grills are charcoal fuelled ceramic grills which allow for efficient heating and minimal flavour contamination. In 1970, American serviceman and entrepreneur, Ed Fisher (later to be founder of The Big Green Egg Company) decided to import Kamado grills to the west, after recalling his experience with them in Japan in the 1950s as a lieutenant in the Navy.
The Kamado Grills are constructed from ceramics with an outer surface glaze that is extremely resistant to weathering. The durability of the Grill is second to none; they do not rust and they will not crack. Our Kamado Grills have precise temperature control giving exceptional results with cooking temperatures from 80°C up to 350°C. All metal work is rust resistant stainless steel.
