Have you recently visited a Japanese steakhouse and sat around a table with friends and other guests; enjoyed watching a chef cook and serve up some great food on a teppanyaki griddle?
Teppan means iron plate and yaki translates to broiled or fried. Together they create the term teppanyaki, which typically means food grilled on an iron griddle or plate. Restaurants usually have large iron plates or flat surfaces upon which multiple teppanyaki foods can be prepared and these include grilled meats and vegetables of all sorts. Teppanyaki Griddles are typically gas fueled or heated flat surface grills and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants. Now the teppanyaki griddle can be part of your outdoor kitchen. Teppanyaki grills are solid surfaces so that when cooking beef, shrimp, scallions, lobster, chicken, and vegetables the food doesn't stick or fall through grates. They are all made with 304 stainless steel. It's a great way to entertain and easy to use/clean.
Popular models include the Blaze griddle on a cart, Twin Eagles Teppanyaki griddle, and Le Griddle tabletop griddle.
