These beautiful and functional Kadai fire bowls are handmade from recycled oil drums by family workshops in India. Hand cut metal plates are riveted in the traditional way for strength and durability.
Before lighting your fire, cover the bottom of the bowl with 5cm with the Kadai beads. They will prolong the life of your bowl and make the Kadai easier to clean and help insulate the bowl and help prevent scorching.
Also wood burns better on beads and it will also help retain the heat for longer - take a look at additional beads here.
We also recommend oiling your fire-pit annually with Owatrol oil, to keep it in good condition, see here to purchase.
During use, the fire bowl will take on a natural rust finish, this is part of the character of the bowl.
In the winter months, if the fire pits are not being used, we would recommend storing them inside
