Genuine Indian Kadai Fire Pit 105- 109cm Diameter
Kadai Background Story
Our Indian kadai were originally used for cooking large quantities of food at festivals and weddings. A fire was lit underneath and food simmered or fried inside. Smaller kadai are frequently seen on the roadside where vendors cook and sell their street food. Now they can be repurposed as a very special and unique outdoor fire pit. Each one is handmade by nomadic Indian traders and has characteristics as individual as the person who crafted it, no two kadai are the same.
We purchase these kadai ethically from Rajasthan India. The individual age is unknown, they can be up to 100 years old. They all bear the patina of years of previous use and understandably, supply is limited.
We usually travel to India to select kadai which are of a good thickness with solid bases, now a trusted contact selects kadai on our behalf until we can all safely travel again. We would not sell anything we would not be happy to receive ourselves.
Prices include a stand and grate to fit your chosen kadai. We have some BBQ grills to fit some kadai which are available on request.

Kadai can be used in other ways:
