WHAT IS A KAMADO ?

Kamado is the Japanese word for oven, the history of the Kamado is 3000 years old. Some of the oldest container for cooking were found in Asia, namely in China, India and Japan, and they were a kind of underground vase.
They were the origin of the current Kamados.
These circular clay vases evolved through the years, and the clay was substituted by ceramics and the ignition originally made with wood is now made with coal.
Another great evolution was the placement of adjustable grills for air circulation, and this way allowing for a better control of the temperature and its’ adjustment.


 


The modern concept of the Kamado was introduced in the United States of America after the Second World War.
After seeing its potential, the American soldiers wanted to bring these ovens home.
This resulted in the evolution of the Kamados to the oval shape and portable as we know them today, since the ovens were originally immobile.

The Japanese word “Kamado” became an international generic term for this type of oven.

Presently a Kamado is a mix of ancient wisdom with the most modern technology.


Japanese Kamados from the 70s, still in operation today.
