How your kamado is made in China?


Recommended Posts

We are a kamado factory in Yixing,China. Since there is a lot of discussion in this forum regarding ceramic part of kamados, we would like to briefly introduce a bit about our production flow for kamado ceramic grills in our factory. 

First of all, I would like to introduce about Yixing, a city famous for its Zisha (Yixing) Teapot. The Zisha teapot has thousand year history in Yixing city,China. The materials for this teapot is produced only in Yixing and now in limited supply, source mince for such clay is even prohibited for producing now. The production and culture developed in this city give its advantage in ceramics also for a long history. There are many refactory product factories in Yixing as well. Ceramic part of kamado in China is made from refactory materials by high fire heat.

I made a brief introduction for the production flow for kamado making in our factory just for your review. 


As a factory, we always seek higher quality level and innovation in kamado to satisfy our customer and market demand. If you have any suggestion for kamado design or using, feel free to bring it out, we can discuss your idea into real product in our factory. 

Thanks for your time and hope all you enjoy your kamado cooking.

1, The refactory clay was put into the mould and dried by light.

2, After finishing, it will be trimmed by hand first. 

3, Then air dried

(Interesting thing is that these two workers are couple so they have the tacit  understanding to make perfect product. )

4, After that, it will be trimmed by machine for uniformity. 

5, And the ceramics will be high-fire heated in a kiln. 

6, After cooling down, it will be glazed.

7, The glazed kamado will be then into another kiln for glazed fired. 

8, that will be the ceramic part of kamado. 

9, Assemble the top vent, hinge, side shelves, bottom vent, cart etc. into the kamado for packaging and shipping

That is mainly how your kamado is made. 

For the kamado surface, private label is also allowed, also any color or shape like GD. 

Some users were complaining the not so tight of kamado. For this issue, our kamado was tested during assembling. A paper money will be placed in between the lid and base. It will be pulled out after close up with some strength. If the paper money is easily pulled out, the hinge or other parts will readjusted till it is not so easy to pull out that you can feel it is tight. 

The kamado industry is developing fast and the demand is rising year on year. Many new technology and improvements are made also every year. It will be our great pleasure that we can hear from you about your suggestion so that we can make a better solution for your kamado barbeque with family and friends.

Do you use lead in producing your Komodo ceramics or in the glaze.? Have you tested to make sure that’s not leaching into food.? That is my major question before buying a Chinese made Komodo grill.
