Introducing Our Kadai Firebowls


kadai_cookingThe word Kadai simply refers to “A bowl-shaped frying pan with two handles used in Indian cookery, chiefly for balti dishes”.

These Kadai bowls have been used throughout India for hundreds of years, to cook food on a grand scale. Imagine creating a bowl large enough to cook for 10,000 people, then you will have an idea of how iconic these bowls really are!

The concept of the Kadai Firebowl is a very simple one. Instead of the bowl being placed over fire to cook in, we’ve reversed the process and put the fire IN the bowl, brilliant right?

With the fire going strong, simply place the grills in the bowl and hey presto, you have a fully functioning BBQ. It works better than you could imagine! Many a delicious meal has been cooked in our households with one of these firebowls. Plus our gardens wouldn’t be the same without them.

People often ask us, “what does it do” and “where does it come from“? Well, allow us to shed some more light on these queries:

  • The Kadai Firebowl is handmade in India:
    • The original Kadai Firebowls are aged anywhere between 50 – 200 years. They have been used throughout India as cooking bowls for centuries. Can you imagine the history and culture you would be buying into? Each Original bowl is unique and beautifully aged.
    • The Recycled Kadai Firebowls are made new, by our fantastic partners in India. Using recycled materials such as oil drums, they are crafted in the traditional way by the ‘Kadai Makers’, a group of individuals who have inherited certain trade skills passed down through the generations. 
  • The Kadai Firebowl is a fully versatile BBQ and Firebowl in one!

Well, thats about it. We welcome you to check out our range here.
