When you look at cast iron Hibachi grills like I did there are a few names that keeps coming back.
Reason to do the Marsh Allen 30052amz Hibachi grill review since this was one of the names that came back several times.
First I hesitated to do it because it had an average of 3.9 stars and usually I do not do grill reviews under 4 stars. However after reading some of the over 450 reviews I decided that I think it deserves a higher rating.
Better Grills Rating: 4.1

About the Marsh Allen cast iron hibachi grill
(Back to Top)
Like all Hibachi grills the Mars Allen also uses charcoal. The grill area is 157 square inches and is divided in two grill grates. Both grill grates come with a nice wooden handle to keep them cool to touch.
These two grill grates Have 3 options to adjusted in height. This is easy for creating multiple temperatures.
The two air vents are not made of cast iron and that is why the ratings might be little lower.

Customer reviews of the Marsh Allen 30052AMZ
Perfect size Portable grill for 2 (up to 4) people. (Portable, but it does take a while to cool down.) The protective finish on cast iron had an odour peculiar of some volatile compounds (can’t quite put my finger on it); the odour persisted after thorough wash. I decided to season all cast iron parts with Crisco, and after 20 minutes in the oven the odour dissipated (seasoned for a little over an hour at 350 deg). No residual odour, and the grill has a beautiful sheen.
After assembly, I had to file two positions on the back support where the cooking grid is inserted, or the grid just wouldn’t stay in place. Just used my leatherman, no biggie…..”
“The grill arrived as advertised on time. The grill required some assembly and included simple instructions with the necessary parts. It was double packed in two shipping boxes and was heavy resulting in some damage to the outer box. After 15 minutes of assemble the grill was ready to go. It is simple to operate and because it is small uses only a little charcoal. Works great. Note: the grill is heavy….(read more here: Marsh Allen Hibachi reviews)”

What we think about this Hibachi grill
(Back to Top)
There is not much negative to say about a grill that cost at the most $40. The thing we found are that it get real hot at the bottom and should be placed on a service that can handle that. Do not use a plastic patio table.
The air vents are cast iron but place in a regular steel frame.
Fitting the grill grates was sometimes a little problem and need a little grinding or filing to make them fit.
This Japanese type of grill is what they call a vintage cast iron hibachi grill and reminds of when I was a lot younger. If you only grill for 2,3 or maybe 4 people and like a sturdy charcoal grill that can last for a long time this is a nice choice.
Little heavy for camping with its 18 lbs, but in a RV is would work well. Remember to let it cool of before moving and also remember that cast iron holds it temperature a long time so it might take a while to cool of.
