(דּוּד, dud, so called from boiling),'a large pot for cooking purposes (1 Samuel 2:14; elsewhere rendered "pot," Psalms 81:6; Job 41:20; "caldron," 2 Chronicles 35:13). The same term in the original also signifies " basket" (2 Kings 10:7; Jeremiah 24:2; probably Psalms 86:6). From the passage in 1 Samuel 2:13-14, it is evident that the kettle was employed for the purpose of preparing the peace-offerings, as it is said (1 Samuel 2:14), "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).
