I love yakiniku and I will always love it but going to a good yakiniku restaurant is really expensive so I can only go there a few times in a year. But luckily there are good meats on supermarket for yakiniku grilling. The only problem is, we are not allowed to do grilling inside the house or the fire alarms will go crazy because of the smoke.
There are some equipments that are claiming to entirely prevent smoke but are expensive. I remember seeing one on an advertisement in television and the price is ¥ 40,000. That’s too high for me. So when we went to Mr Max, a retail discount store, I saw a cheap electric grill that claims to cut off 70% of the smoke and 85% of the oil. It might nit entirely cut the smoke but 70 is a high percentage so I bought it.
This costs around ¥3,000 to ¥4,000 without the tax.
Here are all the items inside. It is very to assemble even without the instructions.
On this metal tray, you need to put 400 cc of water. This is where the oil will go.
I tought that this will be the solution to my yakiniku cravings but to my dismay, this still creates a lot of smoke so I brought out our fan and point it at the smoke towards the exhaust. I expected that it will lessen the oil but no.
I kinda regret buying this but I still enjoyed it. The meat were cooked perfectly and delicious. I will probably use it again but maybe near the windows next time.
It is very easy to clean though and easy to store.
