The ceramic dome is the key. Unlike steel, ceramics absorb and retain huge amounts of heat, locking in the natural moisture of food for a superior taste and flavour profile. In a traditional steel braai, food is cooked primarily from below and this process draws out the moisture in food. The oval shape also ensures optimal circulation of heat for even cooking. The heat retention and airtight seal of the dome, allows for many hours of cooking with less fuel than a traditional braai. By adjusting the top and bottom air vents, the temperature can be accurately controlled for hours and hours. The adjustable air vents allow for total control over the dome temperature for many hours. Cook for up to 14 hours at low temperatures. No other grill offers this.
1) Primary air inlet control for combustion. 2) 100% Natural lump charcoal for best results. 3) Heat rises and circulates around food for even cooking. 4) HIGH HEAT ZONE: DIRECT HEAT for high temperature searing. 5) LOWER HEAT ZONE: Indirect heat with ceramic deflector plate in position 6) Radiant heat from the ceramics also aids in faster cooking. 7) Air outlet control.
IT’S ALL ABOUT FLAVOUR
We all enjoy our braai and the flavour we achieve from natural coals. Kamado Jan takes this to the next level. A mouth-watering combination of flame grilled, smoky flavours will take any recipe to levels you have never experienced. Kamado Jan uses only 100% natural, lump charcoal and the heat retention and dome shape of the ceramics ensure perfect heat distribution and circulation for perfect, evenly cooked meals. Every single time!!!
THE KING OF VERSATILITY
Various grid configurations, complete temperature control and incredible heat retention simply means there is no meal that cannot be prepared to the highest levels in a Kamado JAN. You can easily sear steaks, grill a batch of chops or boerewors, smoke, do low and slow roasts for many hours, bake pizza and even bread. You name it, KJ will do it. The best part of this versatility is that the Kamado Jan will not only achieve all these styles of cooking, it will ace it. Kamado Jan outperforms products purpose built for a single task.

Any temperature you need can be easily achieved with the Kamado Jan. Cruise along for up to 14 hours at low temperatures of 100-130 degrees Celsius, or crank up the heat to screaming hot temperatures of up to 400.
Kamado Jan puts its money where its mouth is with a 20 year limited warranty for the ultimate piece of mind. No other traditional grill or oven offers this? Each Kamado Jan has a unique serial number and your Dealer will register your grill to activate the warranty. See full details of the warranty.
NO CHARCOAL WASTE
Should you have too much charcoal still left after your cooking session, simply close the lid and all vents. This will smother the coals and they can be lit again for your next cook.
The internal surfaces are cleaned by burning the KJ at high temperatures or an hour or two. Do not use any solvents, soaps, chemicals or water on any of the internal ceramics for cleaning. High temps will incinirate all fat or marinade drippings. The outside surfaces can simply be wiped clean due to the smooth glaze on the paintwork. The grids are 304 stainless steel and dishwasher safe, or simply scrub clean with soap and warm water.
LESS TURNING OF MEAT
Kamado Jan is designed to be used with the lid closed for optimal heat circulation and air flow. Unlike traditional grills that rely solely on the heat from below, the Kamado Jan circulates accurately controlled heat around your food for even cooking. No more constant turning of the meat on the grill. Depending on the temperature you are cooking at, turning once or twice will be sufficient. Food is also cooked faster as no heat escapes the dome. Just fight the urge to lift the lid to take a peak….
