When you're finished grilling or cooking with binchotan charcoal, you can place the hot charcoal pieces into the extinguishing pot. The pot is typically made of a non-flammable material like ceramic or metal, and has a lid with a small opening to allow for air flow.
As binchotan burns for much longer than regular charcoal, you can remove the lit briquettes from your konro, place into this pot and put on the lid which will put out the charcoal, ready for use again next time, saving resources and money.
How to Use?
To extinguish the charcoal, simply place the hot pieces into the pot and cover them with the lid. The lack of oxygen inside the pot will cause the charcoal to slowly cool down and stop burning, without producing any smoke or ash. The pot can be reused multiple times, making it an eco-friendly and convenient way to dispose of hot charcoal.
Please note that the pot is 175mm wide, however, the opening of the pot is 110mm wide. Please check that this size fits your requirements.
