We spent 17 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. What these grills lack in size, they make up for in efficiency. Hibachi-style cooking puts your food close to the coals, allowing for quick and thorough grilling of steaks, fillets, veggies, and more. We ranked these models based on their durability, ease-of-use, and price, and we even gave a nod to style. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best hibachi on Amazon.
