Genuine Indian Kadai Fire Pit

Kadai Background Story

Our large genuine old Indian kadhai were originally used for cooking large quantities of food at festivals and weddings. A fire would be lit underneath and food simmered or fried inside. Smaller kadhai 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 fireplace. Each one is handmade by nomadic Indian traders and has characteristics as individual as the person who crafted it, no two kadhais are the same.

We purchase these kadhai ethically from Rajasthan India when they are no longer suitable for cooking food. The individual age is unknown, they can be up to 100 years old. They all bear the patina of years of previous use.

We travel to India to select kadhai which are of a good thickness with solid bases. We would not sell anything we would not be happy to receive ourselves.

Prices include a stand and grate to fit your chosen kadhai. We have some BBQ grills to fit some kadhai which are available on request.

  •  Due to the variations in this product, we calculate delivery depending on dimensions of the kadhai you want and your postcode. The shipping calculator does not  give accurate pricing due to the complexities of packing these items. For example, kadhai over 40kg require delivery on a pallet and special delivery arrangements.
  • Sometimes delivery to a local depot may be convenient for you and will reduce shipping costs considerably. It’s best to contact us and we will work with you to find the best solution for you.


Kadais can be used in other ways:

  • in summer, they can be filled with ice to keep drinks cold.
  • as a very special planter. Bright green foliage contrasts beautifully against the iron.
  • to store firewood.
