Rated 2 out of 5Â by semipro1 Steel insert not worth the added cost
We bought this kit thinking it would be a nice addition to our patio to replace the old steel pit. Right out the box the firebowl was rusted, bent, looked ike it had been used and returned. The bricks arrived in good condition, but we're very disappointed with the quality of the insert.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by John Goes together easily - get a different insert
I read all the reviews before purchasing this fire pit. As stated, it goes together quite easily and looks good. But I also noticed how many people disliked the insert. It's either dented when they get it or just doesn't last, and i've owned the same type of insert before (but as a freestanding pit). They're very thin and disintegrate in 1 season. So i did some shopping and found various inserts, some quite expensive, some pretty reasonable. I settled on an insert made by Well-Traveled Living. Says it's 33/12 inches (outside diameter), 28.5 inside, and it fit's perfectly inside this Home depot firepit... like it was made for it. It's a heavy gauge steel, and i can't say how long it will last, but it has to outlast the cheap thing that normally comes with the HD kit. (Note - i picked up the parts at my local HD, didn't order the kit. but it is the same.) I ordered the insert online from a co. named "Fleet Farm" and it was under $100, including shipping. I've never used them before, but they were very quick to ship, and i couldn't be happier with the product. Also, since there's no bottom to this insert, i bought 6 7-lb bags of the lava rock from Home Depot (not the landscape stuff, the stuff made for grills). I've read that this works well too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NewBackyard Looks great, but arrived dented and rusted
The fire pit is a great addition to the backyard. We've already put it to use and have received compliments on it. The screen arrived dented and rusted. Since we ordered online we were told we'd have to return the entire thing. We plan to use BBQ paint to fix the screen. Assembly was a easy. We used landscape adhesive between layers and will probably replace the fire bowl with a different ring or insert when it rusts..

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tide330 Couldn't be easier...looks fantastic!
I was hesitant to buy this "kit" since I wanted the first pit to really look authentic. After several hours online, I kept coming back to this one as I liked the look with the smaller stones in between.
Bought the kit, received it in just over 1 week and the setup couldn't be easier; simply laying out the stones.
Stones are solid, looks authentic and value is there since I didn't have to waste time figuring out what materials I needed, picking out stones, etc.
