Kettle (דּוּד, dud, so called from boiling),'a large pot for cooking purposes (1Sa 2:14; elsewhere rendered "pot," Ps 81:6; Job 41:20; "caldron," 2Ch 35:13). The same term in the original also signifies " basket" (2Ki 10:7; Jer 24:2; probably Ps 86:6). From the passage in 1Sa 2:13-14, it is evident that the kettle was employed for the purpose of preparing the peace-offerings, as it is said (verse 14), "All that the flesh-hook brought up the priest took for himself." In the various processes of cookery represented on the monuments of Egypt, we frequently see large bronze pots placed over a fire in a similar manner. SEE FLESH-POT.
