These traditional Indian kadai fire-bowls are made from recycled oil drums, hand-cut and riveted in the traditional way for strength and durability.
Used in India for centuries as cooking bowls at weddings and festivals.
Our kadais are the perfect size for alfresco entertaining all year round, whether to cook on or just to sit round on chilly evenings.
Choose from 2 sizes either 70cm or 80cm:
Both sizes of kadais are complete with 2 stands (a high one and a low one), 2 grills, a set of tongs and a wire cleaning brush.
Use the lower stand for fire-pit height and the higher stand to barbecue.
The small stand is ready assembled, the taller stand needs some simple assembly.
When the high base is not in use, a separate recycled wooden table top can be bought to turn this stand into a gorgeous side table.
(Please note the wooden top can be ordered separately but does not have a stand.
Separate grill lifters are available to order separately and also a Cooking Tripod and Bowl.
A travel size kadai is also available.
Helpful Hints and Tips:
Always place your fire-bowl on a flat even surface.
Before lighting your fire cover the bottom of the bowl with 5cm to 10cm of sharp sand, this will help insulate the bowl and help prevent scorching the ground.
Also wood burns better on sand base and the sand will also help retain the heat for longer.
We also recommend oiling your fire-pit from time to time with vegtable oil to keep it in good condition.
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.
