Easton's Bible Dictionary
A large pot for cooking. The same Hebrew word (dud, "boiling") is rendered also "pot" (Psalm 81:6), "caldron" (2 Chronicles 35:13), "basket" (Jeremiah 24:2). It was used for preparing the peace-offerings (1 Samuel 2:13, 14).
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

ket'-'l: In English Versions of the Bible only in 1 Samuel 2:14 for dudh, "a vessel for cooking." The same word in 2 Chronicles 35:13 is rendered "caldrons," and in Job 41:20 (Hebrew 12), "pot." Psalm 81:6 (Hebrew 7) (the King James Version "pots") belongs rather to another signification of the word (the Revised Version (British and American) "basket," for carrying clay or bricks).
