Hibachi grills are known for being simple and portable. Most of them have a small cooking area and we did the cast iron hibachi grill review on better grills.
grills because of their durability and ability to keep the heat retained in the cast iron.
We start by looking at the two most popular cast iron hibachi grills and did a review on both of them.

This Lodge L410 comes pre-seasoned and this is a big plus because seasoning a cast iron hibachi is not too easily done.
This lodge Hibachi is also the number one sold in the outdoor tabletop grills.

Cajun Cookware Classic Hibachi grill
Since cast iron has been used for cooking and grilling because of its high quality it makes sense that this Cajun hibachi is made of that everlasting material.
Compared to the Lodge this hibachi grill is round and some people like that better than the rectangle-shaped ones.
We rated this grill with 4.5 stars and that was because of the many great customer reviews.

Marsh Allen Hibachi
This Marsh Allen charcoal hibachi grill is made of cast iron with some other metals used for the dampers.
That is why we rated it a little lower than the lodge and the Cajun cookware models.
The wooden handles on the two separate grill grates are very nice and stay cool and enable the option to move grates to any of the 3 positions to adjust your grill temperature.

About Cast Iron Hibachi Grills
Although the cast iron hibachi grills are not very popular anymore there are still many people who love them for camping and tailgating. The advantage of using charcoal in combination with cast iron is heat retention.
One of the problems is sometimes that cast iron breaks easily when dropped. That has to do with how cast iron is made.
I found replacements for round cast-iron grates and will keep looking for other shapes.
More types of portable grills
Although the Hibachi type of grill is very popular for years and years now there are more people who start to look for a portable gas grill for its convenience and the fact that you don’t have to fool with charcoal. We did some of the top brand portable propane grill reviews if that is what you like to compare the Hibachi with.
