This uniquely designed Iga-yaki earthenware grill promotes to sear meats with those satisfying grill marks, but without an excess of smoke whether indoors or out. Because the earthenware grill is made of the naturally porous clay from Iga, Japan, the grill tends to retain the same heat level even right after ingredients are placed on the grill.
The grill body is designed to work as a hearth, which also helps the heat to build slowly and prevents the grill from becoming too hot. By filling the outer reservoir with the water, it works as a drip pan, where the excess fat from the cooking can drain through the gaps of the slightly inclined grate. This system not only helps the healthier cooking, but also keeps the grease from draining directly over the flame.
