A sufuria (Swahili plural sufuria; English plural sufurias) is a flat based, deep sided, lipped and handleless cooking pot or container. It is ubiquitous in Kenya, Tanzania and other Great Lakes nations.

A replacement for more traditional crockery containers (ek fara), it used in many Kenyan households for cooking, serving and storing food. Most sufuria are today made of aluminium, and produced and purchased locally in the informal sector. Sufuria were traditionally used to cook over open fire, charcoal brazier (a jiko), or coals, and are purchased in a variety of sizes, with and without lids.
