The Sumi Bincho charcoal is said to burn at a lower temperature than ordinary charcoal, and for longer periods of time. As it doesn’t impart any unpleasant odours, it is suitable for sealing in natural flavours and can be used in any conventional bbq as well as the Konro grills.

The series includes: the small two to four person tabletop grill measuring 200mm(h) x 310mm(w) x 230mm(d), for sous vide finishing; the medium 200mm(h) x 540mm(w) x 230mm(d) restaurant-sized grill for four to eight people; and the large eight to 12 person grill measuring 200mm(h) x 770mm(w) x 230mm(d).

With prices ranging from £299 to £459 inc VAT, all three sizes have a working temperature of 107°C to 350°C, include a cooking grid as standard and are fitted with stainless steel handles for manoeuvrability.

A one-year parts and labour warranty is also included. The Sumi Bincho charcoal comes in a 10kg box for £21 inc VAT.
