Quick Start Guide: Musui–Kamado

Here are a few things we recommend to do first to get started. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at

Once you open the package:

1. Remove the plastic cover

  • The touch panel of the Kamado heating base comes with a plastic cover to protect from scratches. We'd recommend peeling it off before first use.

2. Set the clock

  • Plug in the Kamado and hold the POWER icon for 3 seconds. Once the clock display starts blinking, use [∨ ∧] icons to adjust the time. Hold to fast forward.
  • The clock is in a 24-hour clock (military time) format.
  • The clock needs to be set first to use the timer on RICE COOKING mode.

Before you start cooking:

1. Basic rules

  • Read basic rules for each cooking technique listed on the back of each tab within the cookbook.

2. Season the rims

  • The contact area of the pot and lid is not enamel-coated to achieve our signature precision seal. Season the rims by rubbing on a thin coat of cooking oil before the first several uses to minimize rusting.
  • Dry the pot immediately after washing.

3. Enjoy cooking

  • The Musui can be used on its own on any stovetops (gas and electric), induction cooktops or in the oven.
  • Never attempt to lift or carry by holding the top part of the Kamado.
