Original Kadai Fire Pit



Originating from Northern India, these Original Kadai Fire Pits were used as large cooking pots at festivals and weddings, as well as for general day to day cooking. The tried and tested design has not changed for centuries with riveted plates formed into a bowl shape and fitted with strong carrying handles.

If you are using the Kadai as an open fire we recommend very dry wood. The dryer the wood the less smoke the fire will produce. If you are using it to cook food over, we recommend charcoal, but once wood has burnt down to embers that works well too. To maximize cooking time use charcoal briquettes.

All fire pits come with a metal stand for the pits to sit on. You may prefer to have your pit nestled on some rocks on the ground as the main picture shows. 

  • The natural rust finish of the Original Kadai Fire Pits is part of the character of the item.
  • Periodically use wire wool on the fire pit and stand to remove any loose rust.
  • You can oil the fire pit and stand with vegetable oil to help maintain condition.
  • Store fire pits inside during the winter or if it is not going to be used for a long period of time.

Please note as these are original Fire Pits (approx 60-70 years old) no two are ever quite the same.
