The Little BBQ interaction is tactile and offline, which makes a pleasant change. Cooking together and sharing food is important to all cultures. The shichirin is a cooking tool that includes the whole group and can become an active centrepiece to any great meal or little banquet. 

Because the heat can be easily controlled the shichirin can cook a range of tapas, skewers or similar foods over a long time span. This provides the opportunity to sit, talk, cook, eat and celebrate together for longer.
