The Hot-Pot BBQ at first glance appears to be a simple terracotta pot. Closer inspection however reveals that the Hot-Pot BBQ contains a fully functioning BBQ grill within its base. When not grilling, the Hot-Pot’s top can be used to grow herbs and or vegetables. When BBQ time arrives simply remove the lid and begin grilling, using your fresh herbs and veggies to accompany the meal. This unique setup is ideal for city dwellers with limited space, or for anyone who appreciated multi-functional space-saving designs.

Each container maintains the temperature of the food within, independent of the other.
