Kadhai Fire Pit


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.


Kadhai Background Story

Our genuine old Indian kadhais 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. They are frequently seen on the roadside where vendors cook and sell their street food. No longer suitable for cooking, 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 kadhais 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 previous use. Many are crusty with burnt sugar.

  •  Due to the variations in this product, we calculate delivery depending on dimensions of the kadhai you want and 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.


Kadhais 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.
