Tired of charcoal? Try teppanyaki

The Indoor/Outdoor Teppanyaki Grill from Hammacher Schlemmer provides a unique grilling experience for you and your guests.

Fun for all. Hammacher Schlemmer

Entertaining outdoors is always a lot of fun. Heck, you don't even need to entertain to have a good time. Set me up with a grill and something to put on it and I'll be happy. But for those times when a little more social interaction is wanted, I like to get my guests involved. I believe this to be true not only in the kitchen, but also in the back yard. If you involve the guests, they will have a better time. Besides, then you get to hang out with your family and friends.

The Indoor/Outdoor Teppanyaki Grill from Hammacher Schlemmer provides a unique way to entertain. The wide-open design of the grill lets your guests gather around. The entire top of the grill is the cooking surface, so no matter where people are positioned, they will be able to share in the food preparation.

The grill forms a slight concave indentation in the middle of the grill. This provides an area for juices to accumulate. Foods can be basted or fried as needed. Additionally, the teppanyaki style grill features a cooler temperature zone for the outermost 3-inches. At 50 percent of the temperature at the center of the grill, this cooler area acts as a warmer or for gently cooking vegetables.

The spacious 21.5 inch by 19.5 inch teppanyaki creates an ideal environment for entertaining. From stir-fry to seared steaks, this unique grilling experience will keep the conversation going--when your guests aren't busy eating, that is.
