Cast iron has been the main material for grills, stoves, and all kinds of cooking devices forever.
The durability and the fact that it can last forever make it still used a lot.
This Cajun Cookware Classic Hibachi Grill is no exception to that rule as you can read in our review.

Customer Reviews of the Cajun cookware classic hibachi
“This grill is bigger than it looks, yet, surprisingly light. The item arrived quickly and very well packaged. I’m impressed with the vendor and with the product. There were no reviews posted when I purchased this, so I hesitated (about 3 months) before purchasing, and I am happy to report just how pleased I am with this. Additionally, the construction, cast iron pieces, is excellent, as well as the sturdy handle, which tucks conveniently away when not in use. You can see it in the photo, a detail I had originally missed..)”
“I had purchased this grill in June as a birthday gift for my man. He is a fan of the hibachi style grills and the one he had was looking like it had seen better days, so I read the reviews for this grill and the lodge grill and obviously decided on the Cajun. We don’t use traditional charcoal, we are fans of the hard wood stuff, and this grill works well with it. I’ve cooked on cast iron my whole life and this grill is good quality cast iron; as always take care of your things and they will last! Don’t leave it out to get rained on and oil it every now and then and you shouldn’t have any problem with it rusting. I purchased the grill off of amazon and it arrived promptly nor had I any issues when I inspected it. So if you prefer the look of this one over the lodge and want a larger cooking surface, is go with the Cajun….(read more here: here)”
My opinion of the Cajun cookware classic hibachi
This cast iron grill is made in China, but that does not make a difference in the quality for a change.
Everything except the wooden handles is made from cast iron.
Although according to one person it is not as smooth and polished as the Lodge but it cooks just as well.
This cast iron hibachi got a little lower rating than the Lodge, but when I read all the reviews there are fewer complaints than I read in the Lodge ratings. This should mean in my opinion this Cajun hibachi should be rated higher.
The big advantage is the larger grilling surface and many people like the round design.
It is big enough to cook 5 decent-sized hamburgers.
This grill can also be used with just wood if you would run out of charcoal.
Like any cast iron product it takes a little longer to heat up.
If you maintain this Cajun Classic Hibachi like one of the users mentioned it can last a lifetime.
One point was the little door on the front that seems to be a little loose and will come of if you are not careful with it.
Although it comes seasoned I recommend seasoning it again before the first time you use it.
It is my personal preference to also season the outside, but this is not necessary of course.
Keep it out of the rain and keep it oiled and it will last forever.
I recommend the use of the Weber Charcoal starter to start your charcoal without fluids.

Although this cast iron Cajun classic hibachi is not real cheap we can recommend it as a good buy.
