Sufuria


This 4 piece set of Sufuria was bought in a grocery store in central Kisumu, Kenya.

In Swahili sufuria is the word for a flat based, deep sided, lipped and handleless cooking pot or container. Tradidionally the Sufuria was hand made in clay. Today it is usually massproduced in a lightweight aluminum and a must have for every household in the great lake region.

Bridging the traditional and contemporary ways of cooking, the Sufuria is both used over an outdoor open fire as well as in modern indoor kitchens. The 4 pieces easily slots in to each other, allowing for travel or compact living.
