Laid-Back Camp Personal Grill Plate

Naturally, being a story about camping, many of the related goods for Laid-Back Camp have a connection to actual camping activities. This personal grill plate by AKROS, Ltd. is no exception:

As you can see, it's reversible, one side featuring a stylized interpretation of the Japanese title ゆるキャン△ (complete with the triangle at the end), and the other side featuring the faces of Rin and Nadeshiko in SD style.

A compact notebook-sized personal grill plate, it's perfect for a B6 size BBQ stove, like this one:

It can also be used on charcoal fires, bonfires, and gas burners, both outdoors and at home, and the more you use it, the better your food will taste.


Made from a mold at a casting factory in Niigata Prefecture:
