Might just have to go to a thrift store to pick up a junk pot to do this in...

Your regular stainless pot with welded handles should be ok. Dye will not stick to.

No stainless pots at my house. I do have a Copper Chef though... As long as the dye doesn't ruin it...

Jules, can you provide the specific directions you would use to dye say a dozen handles?  How much water, how much dye, when to put the handles in, when to start and stop the heat, etc....

And yes, I realize this is an old thread.

Been using this for dyeing RC car parts for over 20 year's.
This is great, thanks for the successful experiment! The RIT dye people are going to see an odd spike in black dye sales.

I would imagine if your kettle is sitting in full sun post dying, they may get pretty warm to the touch?  Looks great though, people have been dying plastic parts for a long time with good success provided the original base color is fairly neutral.

I absolutely love the look of this. Iíve never been a fan of those mushroom handles. They are very comfortable but by the time they age they really stick out. Iím thinking about turning this in to a black and blue kettle now. I have the originals but I put the wood ones on from a ten dollar GGA.

Iím thinking black foot, ash pan, handles and wheels. The whitewalls have fallen off anyway.
