Cauldron Cast iron Sage Smudge pot Bean Pot
Prepare soups, potions, and smudging mixtures in this wide-mouthed cast-iron cauldron. The handmade potjie pot has a deep, round belly for efficient heating that is simply decorated with raised ribs. Three legs sturdily support it, while a round lid fits deeply and neatly into its raised lip. The pot is ideal for preparing outdoor meals or burning sacred herbs!
This version of our classic iron cauldron is 5.5 inches high and 6.75 inches wide. It has a voluminous 40-ounce capacity; it's weighty but manageable 5 pounds and is easily hefted by the included sturdy metal handle.
A potjie (pronounced “poikey”) is a time-tested form of cooking pot that has been used throughout Europe and Africa since at least the 1600s, and possibly as far back as the Iron Age. Their design exemplifies the unsung mechanical genius of ancient crafters: the deep, round bottom ensures a good rolling boil that cooks well and prevents food from sticking, while the three legs provide maximal stability, and the wide-mouthed shape allows versatility in outdoor cooking. Each potjie pot is equipped with a sturdy handle for lifting and a well-fitted lid. Cook in your potjie over an open fire or a gas burner, or pile hot coals on the deep, commodious lid to make an efficient Dutch oven.
