hyperbolic cylinder

hi

in 3D one can draw a surface just defining y=x².

However y=1/x produces just the intersection with the xOy plane.

I can use a Surface command like Surface(a, 1/a, l, a, -3, 3, l, -3, 3) for this, but for younger students this is rather complicated. Is there a way to define the surface of y=1/x without using the Surface command and what's the problem with this implicit function whereas I can draw many of them?
