Entry from British & World English dictionary
A container with a handle used to hold paint during use.
- A well-made paint kettle can become like a friend you won't want to throw away when the job is done.
- Rather than using paint directly from the manufacturer's can, after thoroughly mixing the paint in the can, pour off a quantity into a paint kettle (just a small can with a handle) and use the paint from the kettle.
- If you have an accident with the paint kettle, less paint will be wasted than if you were working from the manufacturer's can.
