Rated 3 out of 5 by Don't Expect Long Life The design of the grate itself is good, but depending on how much wood you burn, the life expectancy can vary greatly. I can usually get one season out of one of these. The mesh is handy if you start your fires using slivers of wood and small pieces of kindling, but is the first thing to wear out and fall off as well. I burn primarily oak and run my fireplace/stove pretty hot. Because the bars are only half inch thick, both the support and cross bars eventually warp and I usually end up having to take them outside to straighten them back into shape with a small sledge hammer 6-8 times a year. By the end of the season there's usually only an 1/8" of steel bar remaining on the main areas and/or the welds are totally shot in several spots. But the price is right and I haven't found anything better for the price and my needs yet, so it's just something I plan on replacing every year. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the size I needed! I needed a small grate for my outside fire pit so the wood was not sitting on bottom of pit - this is perfect. September 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fireplace Grate Product looks good and fits well in our fire pit. I am interested to see how it looks after a year of service outside.. September 16, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality Nice for the price. Quality and it works great! Easy to clean and catches all the embers. Not too weighty for a woman to lift. December 24, 2013
