The hibachi is a traditional Japanese heating device. It is a brazier which is either round, cylindrical, or box-shaped, open-topped container, made from or lined with a heatproof material and designed to hold burning charcoal. It is filled with incombustible ash, and charcoal sits in the centre of the ash. Hibachi were used for heating, not for cooking. It heats by radiation, and is too weak to warm a whole room.
