Uchicook is made in Sanjo, Japan, a city that has been perfecting its metalworking craft since the 1800s and this heritage shows. Each grill’s durable, aluminum body distributes and retains heat evenly—and, if you have the lid on, it cooks your food in a third of the time.
Once you’ve picked your recipe, the rest is pretty hands-off. Place your ingredients on the grill without any oil to sear them, then add water to the surrounding ridge and use the lid to trap the steam.
The ribbed plate drains out excess grease, the steaming prevents the food from being stripped of its essential nutrients, and the grilling gives it that flavorful, charred finish.
