Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve Ok Firepit
This is the exact same firepit I saw on other websites selling it for 3 times the price. Glad I didn't waste my money buying it somewhere else.
The bowl is a just thin metal so I am worried it will rust out in a year or two. I really wanted something with a heavy bowl or another type of metal that doesn't rust. No one seems to make anything like that unless you are spending $1000 for a copper bowl.
The frame on this is cast iron so it should last for a while. It is a nice looking fire pit.
We've used it a couple times and does what it is supposed to do. It does need a hole in it though as it collects water when it rains.
Overall I'd say it is an average fire pit.

If you want a decent sized fire then this one is for you. 35inch bowl is just right to keep your friends & family warm on those chilly nights. If you get one thats too small you'll regret it, trust me. Assembly is easy and straight forward. The bowl & legs that it rests on are plenty sturdy & should last many, many years with proper care. As for the domed screen that sits on top, I can't comment because I don't use it, but I don't think it would last very long due to the intense heat from the fire below it. Yes, this pit is a bit pricey, but for it's size you can't find one much cheaper, and you won't be disappointed. So break out the marshmallows & enjoy your fire!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Munchkin Very Nice Fire Pit
Easy to assemble, with just an extra set of hands to line up the bolt holes, and very attractive once done. As mentioned in other reviews I'd read, I drilled a few small holes in the bottom, and spray painted it with high heat paint. I'd not done either to the one I was replacing, but still got several years service from it, so expect the same from this one. Nice large burning area and have already used & enjoyed it.

I bought this five years ago. It sat outside, uncovered, in the Michigan weather 365 days per year for the last 5 years and is just now in need of replacement.
I did repaint it with high temperature paint 3 years ago because the bowl and screen had surface rust. When I painted the bowl, I also drilled a drain hole in the bottom of it since water will collect in it.
I've been very satisfied with this pit - especially in lieu of how much I have neglected it. It holds a lot of wood and the cast base is very appealing and looks great on the patio.
I've researched a lot of fire fire pits in my search to replace this one and have decided to replace it with the same thing again. I will proactively paint the screen on the replacement with a high-temp black paint this time but aside from that, I'm not going to do anything different - just enjoy it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Junior Very nice product
Very good product. It has held up very well.
After the several years that I have owned this, the fire bowl on my has rust holes in and for safety will replace it.
I love the size and I will purchase this same one again!
One thing I did learn, to make it last, is a day or two after the fire is out, I empty the ashes and turn the bowl sideways so water does not collect in it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shopehope This has been great!
I bought this firepit 2 years ago and it has really stood the outdoor elements well. Rugged material has not faded or chipped. No rust or discoloring. I do have a cover on it when not in use but it is still in excellent condition. I only use it during the fall and early spring. The colors and finishes have remained intact. I use the firelog starters and add wood as I have it. I would recommend this firepit to everyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MTTom Paint Peeling after One Use
I really liked this fire pit and it is a great size, and fairly solid. Unfortunately after using it for the first time last night, I noticed the paint underneath was starting to chip and peel. Maybe it was just the one we bought, but will return it and try another. Hopefully the next one is better. For $130, you'd think it would be a little better quality. (It appears to be painted aluminum.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PattiD Sturdy, Attractive Fire pit
This fire pit is very nice looking, seems durable and is well made. It is larger than it appears online. The only negative is that there aren't any drainage holes n the bowl for rainwater so it must be covered when not in use.
