We have only had this set for a few weeks so far and we love it. I was replacing another set that we purchased less than 3 years ago that was made out of that fake, plastic 'wicker' that is now cracking EVERYWHERE. So I thought I would try metal instead and hopefully this will last MUCH longer. You can beat the price...it's like getting furniture for free! Most fire tables that are similar looking are around a thousand bucks. I purchased some clear fire glass here on Overstock to replace the brown lava rock and it looks amazing! You only need 1 order. The only 2 things that I didn't like was the white table isn't white, more like a light grey, and the tank hides in the little table. So you have to have that end table close by and you will have a tube running from it to the large table. The other issue was, there is no hole or cutout at the bottom, so the end table sits on the hose and therefor doesn't sit flat on the floor. We drilled away at the bottom to create an indent on the bottom to fix that problem. However, for the price, I didn't care about those small things!
I certainly wasn't sold on this product before receiving it, but it is perfect for what we wanted. This was purchased really just to provide a bit of ambiance to a limited size front patio area - sitting on a stone on the ground, not elevated on a table. The area we had for it to go was 2ftx2ft. From the dimensions I thought it would be too small (11x11) or too underpowered (10,000 BTU). Instead it produces a beautiful flame, and is the perfect size for our area. The unit is also very solidly made, the glass rock is a nice upgraded touch, and the operation and look/size of the flame is extremely nice. The install/removal of a 1lb tank every night seemed a bit inconvenient (of course, there's no other way to include the tank in the design so it's not a design flaw) so we decided to modify it by using a conversion hose and running it to a 20lb propane tank located 12 ft away. That way we can shut the propane off at the source after each use, and replace the tank easily if/when needed - and save $ on the propane cost ($XX for a 20# refill vs $XX for 20-1# tanks). Works beautifully.
Perfect size for a patio and 8-10 chairs circled around it. I love how deep the bowl is so nothing falls out. You do have to drill your own holes in the bottom for drainage if you plan to leave it outside and uncovered. Very easy to assemble.
Fire pit is very nice and we are happy with it. First fire pit delivered had some damage but Overstock immediately sent another which arrived in 3 days. I give Overstock credit for standing by their product and making the purchase a good experience. Fire pit was ready to put in propane bottle and no assembly required. Sitting outside around the fire pit on lovely winter nights in the desert is wonderful, and relaxing.
So the listing for this item says it is white....it is actually a concrete gray color. I painted It to suit my needs and added a reflective fire glass that makes it stunning. So happy with how it turned out! :-)
I thought about going with propane, but I'm really happy that I went with natural gas. I piped it in under my deck and I don't have to deal with hiding ugly propane tanks. This works and looks awesome!
Love the design on the sides. I read another comment that shared that the propane tank is connected and rests outside the table. Would look better and be more functional if there were a door and space inside the base - I read the review but bought this fire table anyway. Note: It is a bit smaller than what I expected. Pay attention to the height so you won't be disappointed or surprised. All that being said, I am very happy with it.
We really enjoy this sphere of fire to entertain and warm us up. This 30 inch ball fire pit gives a view of the fire from top to bottom. Comes with a protective cover so no sparks will fly, only the glow of the wood burning. We have never experienced a more fantastic view of a wood fire, from the embers on the bottom to the flames on top. I like the quality of the fire pit as it is strong for several (medium) logs. We also like the see-thru look of the metal grate, uninterrupted flame flickering and warming. Friends that have seen it want to get one or more for their backyard parties. They Like the copper touch on this model, adding a reflection as the fire burns. So glad we ordered the 30 Inch, more to enjoy with family and friends. The option to move it around Is better than a built in. Put it where you want to enjoy it. We are very happy with this purchase. We have given this Fire Pit a GREAT review!
This was a gift for my daughter's boyfriend. He loves it! They have used it for friends gathering at their house and have cooked large meals on it. They moved it to their new place, and while you can tell it has been used many times, it is still holding up very well.
At first it was a little confusing because the instructions are not helpful, plus there are extra pieces that I did not know what to do with. I figured out that there are two choices of handles. One is a loop that you use with the wand if top is hot, The other is wider and used for just a hand lift. Not sure why they have two and there is no explanation. The basin is shallow so any fire would have to be kept small, but it is good enough to have on a small patio. The price was right, so I do not have any complaints.
Arrives in a few different pieces, so some set up is definitely required. It also takes two people to lift. It works great and puts off a lot of heat. The color is a little lighter and softer in person, and it comes with a beige plastic cover. Very easy to turn on and off once it is set up and it comes with plenty of rocks. We're happy with our purchase.
This is an awesome table. Shipping was fast, well packaged, easy to assemble. Literally just put tank in and turn on. We replaced the lava rocks with black fireglass. My BIG complaint is the color is NOT what is shown. Im not returning bc it would be a pain but the picture is misleading. I bought this ONLY bc I thought the color was grey. This looks like a dark slate almost brown color.
This heavy little unit is super-sturdy and nicely handles a log or two. My husband drilled some holes in the deep bowl to allow for water drainage. It is the perfect centerpiece for our outdoor seating area.
-attractive (true to picture)
-table chair height
-easy to fit 4 people with plates around the table while the fire is on
-flame is at least 1.5-2 inches high at the lowest setting
-a little complicated to put together/ instructions were sometimes unclear
-fire put glass is nice, but some broke in transit so there were small glass shards in the box
Overall I love this table. It is the perfect piece to turn my back patio into an outdoor room. Would buy again!
I really like this one. So many fire pits seem to generally be disposable and this one feels solid, durable, and still quite attractive. I love the deep pit and the screened sides. I've had it a week and used it 3 times already. It was easy to put together and I'm very pleased.
I have been looking for a nice looking fire pit that has a tall flame that adds warmth to a cool evening. Couldn't be happier with the purchase! The grey color coordinates with the bluestone patio. Love that it has a top piece that covers the flame mechanism that makes it look like a table. We also purchased the coordinating side table that houses the propane tank and use it as a side table with our patio furniture. Both came with a black fabric cover that looks custom made for the piece. So happy we decided on this set. Only wish the lava rocks were black instead of a rust color but I can change that myself.
Perfect size for my backyard. Works extremely well and is very heavy duty. I sprayed a coat of polyurethane all over to prevent rusting and it seems to be holding up its end of the bargain. Keeps me warm and it's pretty to look at, can't complain!
Purchased as a gift. Should have sent directly to recipient. Arrived in one over carton. VERY heavy with plastic straps and VERY unwieldy. Some parts bent out of shape (but repairable with pliers) while carton was still sealed. Once opened, assembly was fairly easy and straightforward. Good in use, but some of the clear glass "pellets" started to blacken from gas flames and part of burner assembly visible. Colored glass and/or lava rock probably better looking.
We have a relatively small patio and this firebowl was perfect between the loveseat and two chairs. We have not watched TV for a single night since we got it. Love it. So much better than fighting a wood fire with the smoke.
Package came to me on time from Overstock. Everything was in good shape without shipping damage. Fire pit went together easily with the tools provided in the package. The fire pit is very solid and looks great. The included cover is not particularly durable but is good to keep the fire pit dry and not exposed to the elements. Heat radiates well from the fire pit because of the open design. I could not be happier with the purchase considering what was available for the same prices (and more) from local brick and mortar stores.
My husband and I purchased this as a gift for our parents. It was absolutely beautiful!! They can use it both inside for a decoration or outside when they have company. We are very happy we went with this item!
Gather family and friends around a fire pit or chiminea in your backyard patio. Overstock.com offers a wide variety of outdoor fireplaces and accessories to make your yard warm and welcoming on cool autumn nights. Choose from a selection of stone or metal fire pits, or use a fire pit rim to build your own pit in the ground. A steel, aluminum, or wrought iron chiminea offers a more unique look than a traditional fire pit and takes up less ground space. This selection also includes table-top fire pits and fire bowls that are ideal for smaller patios and can be more welcoming for a small group of guests. Lava rocks are a popular choice for filling a pit and are a less expensive option than firewood. Fire glass is also an appealing choice.
Common Fire Pit Materials
Fire pits made of metal radiate more heat than fire pits of other kinds. Because the metal doesn’t insulate from heat, you get the most heat from the fire as possible. Metal is also a good choice because of its strength and durability. Metals like steel, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, or copper are rugged and resilient, ready to help you heat your outdoors with efficiency and longevity.
Glass can be used in a fire pit in two ways. Glass is most commonly used as fire glass, tempered glass put inside a gas-burning fire pit that amplifies the temperature and creates a mesmerizing visual effect. Glass can also be used in the actual construction of the fire pit for a unique and glittering design.
Concrete fire pits offer all the functionality of other fire pits, with a sleek, minimalist industrial design. Built to last, these fire pits are timeless and subtly elegant, something you’ll never want, or need, to replace and come in lots of different designs and shapes.
Fire pits are a wonderful way to create a warm and functional focal point in your back yard. Fire pits actually draw people outside, give them something to gather around, and create fun conversations with friend and families that last for hours.
Chimineas have the same ability of fire pits to draw people out and gather them around a central point, but with the added distinctive style that only a chimenea can offer. Constructed of intricate and fascinating metalwork, chimineas will give a backyard an exotic, old world feel.
Nothing is more timeless or more cozy than a fireplace. Thankfully, you can now have all the benefits of a traditional fireplace with the addition of tons of modern convenience. Fireplaces are now available as electric heaters, gas-burning units, and portable units that can be moved around the home and more.
The fireplace looks modern and good amount of heat when sitting around it. The quality is good as well. I would recommend this product to my family and friends anyday!
