Once assembled it's as easy to light as a barbeque grill. The glass rocks (included) give a fire & ice effect, but not quite my taste, So I just replaced with barbeque lava rocks, which not only cover and hide the aluminum hardware in the fire pit "tray"better, the lava rocks retain and radiate heat more efficiently. Metal surround does not get hot, even after several hours of use.
Perfect for an outside patio, We used glass fireplace stones for added color. Adds a nice bit of heat for cooler nights. Lovely stone on the outside adds texture and color!
