Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by HurricaneDave Very Nice Fire Pit
This is a nice product. It was packed very well for shipping. And I didn't think it was difficult to assemble at all. I read all the other reviews, some stating it was hard to assemble, but I didn't find that to be the case. The instructions were just ok, but gave me enough to go on.
It lit up on the first attempt and seems to put out plenty of heat for my purposes.
I cannot speak to the durability yet, but it seems well built.
It is a beautiful pit. I am very satisfied!

Only thing, do not use the cheap fake logs that come with the fire pit--they stink and they smoke. Stay with the lava rocks.

I was able to put this together pretty quick and it was fairly easy by myself. The slate top looks great and the fire pit works great!

the fire pit came packaged up in individual pieces which made it easier to get started, but the instructions are terrible. need more details like you must assemble upside down and label the parts. if you have any ability ( mechanically ) at all, it falls together fairly easy. the guy who said he did it in less than 30 minutes is a liar . there's no way, it has over 100 screws ! overall it is well worth the time,
it took me 1 1/2 hours. looks great ! very happy !

First, not as hard to put together as some reviewers say. You just need to be fairly handy to do so in a short time. Put together myself without any assistance in about 2 hours taking my sweet time. Instructions are OK to follow if you're familiar with reading pictures and making sense of them. Most folks will probably need two people especially in two or three different steps. First, unit should be put together upside down as others have noted. I used two "horses" so I didn't have to work on the floor-easier on the ol' back. The tile and slate top rest between the two saw horses and you go from there (up). The fire bowl is a little tricky with one person...this is where two people would be handy as it is installed once you have turned the slate and tile counter top upside down. This is why it is good to get this puppy off the floor. Once you set two screws on opposite sides of the fire bowl, you're set and you can place the other two screws painlessly. As you move through the construction of the sides, you should not tighten the screws until you have set all of the screws for a side. Once a side is fully constructed, you should tighten down the screws. Repeat this for the other two sides. The side with controls and doors that open are a little different and easier to complete at the end. The other step where assistance may be needed is placing the bottom deck on the unit. This is a large awkward piece that could really use two people to set correctly. It took me about 20 minutes by myself to set it correctly because of its unbalanced weight and awkward setting on the unit. Once in place though, very nice. There were some comments about the screws and metal not being heavy gauge to withstand rust. I simply sprayed all of the screws and surrounding area lightly with black rust oleum after they were in place and tightened down. This should help the screws from deteriorating for some time. I also targeted other covered and hidden metal with the same rust inhibiting paint. You would never know since the areas are hidden but it adds another layer of protection especially when you live in a wet spring and winter climate. I haven't fired it up yet but will do so in the coming days....unit looks better than I thought it would and really had no major issues with putting it together. If you use saw horses to raise off the floor as you put it together, you will need help to flip it right side up and move to your desired location as it is heavy. All in all, looks like a good piece for the price..
