Genuine old Indian kadhai fire pit. Large handcrafted iron bowl previously used for cooking food can now be repurposed as a unique and very special outdoor fire pit. Larger sizes (more than 110cm) and extra special premium kadhai are available and are priced individually according to size, weight and detail. Please contact us for further information.
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.
