Video: Getting Started with an Outdoor Hibachi Grill
Wondering what it is really like to cook on the Gather Grill? In this video, Chef Jarvis cooks 3 incredible stir fry meals on the ultimate outdoor hibachi grill. Learn more about these stir fry recipes in this article.
The Benefits of Cooking on Outdoor Hibachi Grills at Home
When you visit a Hibachi restaurant, the aroma of ginger and garlic invite to you to the table. The sound of sizzling beef fills the air. The laughter of families turns to cheers as someone catches the flying shrimp in their mouth. You can almost taste the sweet and savory seafood sauce and feel the tender, perfectly cooked filet on your tongue.
So why cook at home when you can go out? For dedicated grill masters, there’s no comparing the experience of crafting your own perfect recipes for the grill and sharing them with your loved ones. When it comes to a Japanese charcoal grill experience, it just can’t be matched by restaurant hibachi grills that use only a gas or electric powered griddle.
Food Allergies and Quality Control: The Advantage of Home Outdoor Hibachi Grills.
One significant advantage of becoming your own chef with a hibachi grill for your home is that you can carefully control the ingredients. With widespread food allergies becoming a more frequent concern, going out to eat is more and more challenging for many families. When you’re in charge, potentially fatal shellfish or peanut allergies are no longer a concern. Neither are gluten or MSG reactions. You can also control the food quality. With your outdoor hibachi grill for your home, you can select only the highest quality meats and seafood your family deserves.
The Cost Savings of a Hibachi Grill for Your Home
Another advantage of creating your home hibachi grill experience is cost. Feeding a larger family or group at a restaurant is a pricey outing, easily running into the hundreds of dollars for a single meal. By investing in a hibachi grill for your home, you can have that fun and delicious experience as often as you’d like, without worrying about the hefty bill and tip that dining out requires.
Home Hibachi Grills: Get Ready for the Memories
For many families, the ingredient and cost control advantages are great benefits, but what really matters is the memories. When you’re fixing a hibachi-style grill meal for your friends and family, you get to be the star. You can be as creative as you’d like, becoming a celebrity chef for those who gather around your table. With the unique style of Gather Grills, your dining companions join you at the grill, just as in a restaurant. If you want to put on a show for them, you can. Or you can simply connect as you cook, inviting each person to be a part of the experience, catching up, celebrating and just being together in a memory-making evening every time.
Home Hibachi Grills: Your Options for Griddle Cooktops with Your Grill
If you search for griddle cook tops for your grill, you may come up short on choices. There are four main styles you’ll find: cast iron, stoneware, single unit griddles and stainless steel pans. Stainless Steel offers the best combination of quality and functionality, so each Gather Grill comes with a 304 Grade Stainless Steel griddle that provides an incredible hibachi experience.
Outdoor Hibachi Grills Quality: From Entry Level to Grill Mastery
When it comes to outdoor hibachi grills, you’ll find a huge range in quality.
Low-End Grill Choices
Unfortunately, there are lot of less-than stellar models on the market. Cheap, thin, metal grills are common. Very lightweight grills may be tempting due to being very portable, but that same benefit becomes a drawback when you realize how easily they – and their flaming hot contents – can be tipped over. Smaller grills are also not equipped to handle the heavy griddles required for a home hibachi grill experience. These entry level grills might allow you to cook for a few people a time or two before they start rusting, but these small grills will not give you the epic backyard cooking adventure you’re looking for if you want to produce a true home hibachi grill event.
High-End Grill Options
On the other end of the spectrum, you have heavy-hitters like the Big Green Egg for charcoal buffs and Weber for gas grill enthusiasts. At the higher end (and significantly higher price tag) you’ll find excellent quality, but for the most part your grill is going to be staying right where you put it. Large egg-style grills weigh enough to make moving them even an inch a huge production of time and effort. Gas grills are definitely more portable, but also bring with them greater safety concerns, as gas grills cause nearly seven times more home fires every year than charcoal grills.

Gather Grills: The Ultimate Choice for Quality and Versatility in Home Hibachi Grills.
It’s rare to find an outdoor hibachi grill for the home that is large enough to cook for a crowd and has the option to turn that griddle into a traditional grill and more. Standard grills also do not offer the ability to turn the cook tops with the grill into a table that true hibachi-style meals always include. This is where the rare quality and unique design of Gather Grills serves the home chef who both loves to host and spend time together with their guests.
With Gather Grills, you’re getting more than just a rugged, durable outdoor cooking device. In addition to the stainless steel griddle which offers the active cooking experience of hibachi grills, Gather Grills can also function as a smoker, firepit and table as well as a traditional grill. Its unique removable table wings offer the chef additional workspace to hold ingredients or tools, as well as providing a place for others to gather around, sit, and enjoy a drink or an appetizer. Much like the hibachi grills in restaurants, Gather Grills brings the diners into the preparation process, making the cooking as enjoyable as the eating.
Home Hibachi Grills and Beyond: The Value of Gather Grills
With other grills capable of delivering a hibachi restaurant experience at home, they cannot offer the value of the Gather Grill. This single investment can be griddle, grill, smoker, firepit and table. Instead of buying (and then also having to store) multiple devices, you can have them all rolled into one.
Gather Grills are large enough to cook for your usual crowd, sitting 7 people for small family gatherings on the Tailgater 28” version, on up to 20 or 30 guests at a time for your really big celebrations on the 46” Reunion model. One of the best parts is that the griddle cook surface is not an additional add-on expense with Gather Grills. It is part of the package, offering the ultimate flexible outdoor cooking experience.
A Home Hibachi Grill Meal Worth Toasting
Once you’re finished adding your own unique flair to a hibachi-style cooking experience for your guests, serve them up a bowl of fried rice and teriyaki chicken. Maybe you warmed a little sake on the side. You and your guests can then use the grill you just used to prepare the meal as the dining table, keeping the whole group together through the entire experience. After dinner, open up the grill to reveal the firepit and treat your family and friends to a dining adventure that no restaurant can match. With the ultimate outdoor cooking experience offered by Gather Grills, having a hibachi grill for your home becomes a true memory-maker. Raise your cup of sake or green tea and toast your friendships with a hearty “kanpai!”
