The charcoal starter pot is a very useful tool, enabling you to light your binchotan charcoal ready to be transferred to your Hibachi grill. No burns, no fuss!

STEP 1  Insert the charcoal into the starter pot, then place the pot on your gas hob or an open flame.

STEP2  Allow for the charcoal to be flamed until fully lit then place into your grill. Do not overfill the starter pot! The binchotan will take between 10 to 15 minutes before it is fully glowing, so be patient.

STEP 3  Once fully lit, transfer your binchotan charcoal to your grill and wait for a minimum of 10 minutes for the binchotan to fully build the heat and insulate your grill. If using a bigger grill, place additional binchotan on top of the already lit charcoal and wait for it to be fully lit before you start grilling.

And away you go!
