See How The LotusGrill Works
The LotusGrill is a unique table barbecue – even if it gets knocked over, no embers or coal can escape from its container. The outer bowl is made of powder-coated steel which never gets hot during use. Two latches connect the grid, outer and inner bowls holding the charcoal container securely in place to form a single and safe unit.
Constructed from Steel and shock resistant plastics. Grill, inner bowl, charcoal container and latches made from Stainless Steel. The grill and inner bowl are dishwasher safe making the LotusGrill easy to clean after use. The LotusGrill arrives ready to use with 4 x AA batteries included, carry case and instruction manual.
The LotusGrill® has so many features, but one of the most important is its speed. Most charcoal BBQ’s take up to 40 minutes to begin cooking, with the LotusGrill® it only takes 3-4 minutes. It is easy to assemble and disassemble and the charcoal lights quickly and effortlessly. It is portable and weighs just 4kgs. It doesn’t require electricity or gas. You have total control over the temperature by adjusting its inbuilt fan, and it is extremely safe to use with its double walled construction. The outer bowl will never become hot, eliminating the potential of hand burns. The ‘bellows’ airflow system allows the charcoal to burn very quickly at high heat, thus preventing smoke.
Grilling with the LotusGrill® ensures low fat cooking and therefore calorie-conscious cooking of food. Because of its design excess fat cannot reach the charcoal and burn, substances such as polycyclic aromatic hrydrocarbons and benzopyrene that are produced with conventional charcoal grills are not produced by the LotusGrill.
Yes, the mesh container is available for replacement or as a convenient second container to store and alternate between. Replacement bowls and grills are also available, just in case you damage or lose them.
Only in a well-ventilated areas with doors and windows open. We recommend you light it outside first, because some charcoal dust can create smoke initially. Be aware to position the LotusGrill® away from smoke detectors and alarms and never leave it unattended.
The LotusGrill® comes preassembled and ready to grill. However you will need to remove the protective plastic packaging before grilling. 4 x AA batteries are supplied, remove these from their packaging and insert into the battery compartment underneath the base of the LotusGrill®. Take care to insert the batteries the correct way up. When fastening the grill to the body, ensure the two loops are lined up with the clips. Damage can occur if you try to fasten the grill anywhere other than on the Loops.
It is best to use natural hardwood quality charcoal from your local hardware or BBQ store. The higher the quality charcoal, the better the result with even less smoke. The LotusGrill® was designed for charcoal so we don’t recommend any other fuel.
We recommend an Ethanol fire lighter gel and sell one especially for the LotusGrill. Turn the battery operated fan on using the dial on the side of the LotusGrill®. Pour around 2-3 capfuls of gel onto the lighting plate under the mesh container, light it and place the filled charcoal container with lid attached on top. Full instructions are supplied in the box.
Sometimes when the LotusGrill® is first lit you will get a little bit of smoke, often this is inferior pieces or dust in the charcoal. This will quickly settle down to virtually no smoke, hence the smokeless grill. Fatty foods may cause the odd puff of smoke, to avoid this keep fatty meat off the flat metal grill plate. Ensuring you clean your BBQ each time significantly reduces the risk of fat flare-ups and smoke.
Yes, turn the fan down and use tongs (Silicon tipped tongs recommended) to lift off the top of the mesh container, add some charcoal pieces into it and give it 3 minutes, you will lengthen the duration of cooking time.
You can either leave the fan off until the charcoal has burnt itself out (leaving the fan on speeds this process up) or by using tongs to remove the grill and charcoal holder from the LotusGrill pour water over them. Extinguished charcoals can be disposed of on a compost heap or in a garden recycling bin.
Both the grill plate and inner bowl can be placed in the dishwasher or hand washed. Avoid using scouring pads or harsh abrasive cleaners as they will scratch the stainless steel bowl, a kitchen dish brush with detergent should be sufficient. If there are stubborn stains, soak overnight or use a metal polish product.
We strongly recommend cleaning the LotusGrill after each use otherwise fat and fluids will bake on and be harder to take off. Part of the heating process requires that you have a clean bowl to enable reflective heat.
It is there purely to stop the fat dripping onto the coals, which in turn eliminates fat burning and smoking. Yes, it is ideal to use for any food, bearing in mind that you will get fat on it, and this may cause smoke.
