What Features To Consider When Buying a Teppanyaki Grill

In Japanese, Teppanyaki grill translates to ‘grilling on an iron plate’.

These grills are great for family dining or having friends over – you cook and eat in the same place so it’s a very social and collective form on dining.

Plate Size

What plate size you go for will depend on your use – will you be using for just a few of you or will you be grilling with a number of guests visiting.

A general rule of thumb is that for smaller groups you’re looking at a grill size of maybe only 40 cm. For larger groups, a XXL grill may be up to 90 cm or even bigger.

If you are tempted with a super large one for entertaining and feeding many guests have a think about storage – as they can be up to 1 m in length!

Temperature Controls

This is a personal preference – you may be fine with the grills that have half a dozen temperature settings. Or you may wish for more granular control and a grill that will let you set a very specific temperature.

Grill Material

You can pick up Teppanyaki grills in any number of materials.

These can include iron, stainless steel, aluminium or even copper.

You can also find ones where the material surrounding the grill area is in a wooden effect.

Cleaning

The majority of teppanyaki grills have a non stick coating and this makes them easy to wipe clean, with a warm cloth after it’s been used and cools down.

On the downside they are not dishwasher safe.

It’s also preferable to pick up a grill with a built in drip tray. This keeps the fat away which is healthier and also makes them easier to clean.
