ISO Japanese Infrared Grill

Decades ago, my parents (in Manila) had a Japanese grill that worked like a dream: fast, intense heat, minimal smoke, with 4 heating elements each under some kind curved glass. I've never seen anything like it for sale in the U.S., until I saw this on Alibaba:

Has anyone seen something like this for sale? Amazon has infrared grills for sale, but I don't think that they are the same kind.

  1. They make small infrared grills. I think Solaire makes one. Runs about $300.

    Thought about it, since I'm a steak fanatic, but I didn't like how it cooked the meat judging from pictures i've seen. So I've since resigned myself to saving up for a double broiler/salamander :D
