Kotai hibachi vs Lodge Sportsman (or both?)

^ I saw the above links on a friend's website and I was thinking this would make yet another good gift for my niece. But I was unsure which one to get her.

I've lived in Tokyo for a few months and I really enjoyed their style of barbeque. After buying my niece the Smithey cast iron skillet and seeing her use it, I was thinking the Lodge Sportsman would be a good purchase. Cast iron is beautiful and heats very well.

For the Kotai, I would think it would be more suitable for someone who would use the grill more than three times a week. So, I don't think she would need that grill.

For the Konro, I think the Lodge would be better suited since it's cast iron.

These are just some thoughts about these three. What do you think/recommend? Thank you.
