Pros: Easy to assembleCons: The kit arrived with several chipped bricks. I paid extra for the Santa Fe color and some of the bricks were a completely different color. Also, the weld on the steel ring was poorly done. It was never ground and there was already signs of rust.

This out would have been perfect if it had not been for lots of chipped stones. It would be desirable for the manufacturer to find a solution to having so many chips.

It's a nice fire pit overall and comes with everything that you need except for the stone that you will need to make the base. My only issue with the pit is that several of the blocks had nice sized chips in them.

    This is an excellent fire pit kit. The instructions are clear about the preparation and install procedure. The stones shipped on a pallet in round configuration, so it was easy to move them fit them again. The grill handle is not quite what is shown in the picture, but works the same. Included paver adhesive tube requires an extra-large caulking gun which I did not have -- would have preferred multiple smaller tubes to better control how much I used. Very happy with the final result!

    Product was delivered on time and in great shape. Easy to assemble once youve leveled the area. Put it together in the morning and enjoyed a fire that night.

    Delivered to my door (free) on time. Assembled/constructed the same day--easy to do. Wasn't sure the kit contained the masonry adhesive caulk. I pre-purchased the adhesive I thought I needed before the shipment arrived. Only problem with the adhesive in the kit was it used an enlarged caulking gun (which I didn't own).

    This is a very nice looking and high quality fire pit. We got it in Bluestone to match our grey patio and the color is nice. I am happy with the quality and the way it looks. The blocks look nice and were easy to assemble. The adhesive takes about 20 minutes to firm up in 70 degree F, which was plenty of time for adjustments as we went. The entire process starting with pouring sand took about 2 hours. The hardware is good quality. Time will tell how well the steel weathers. We plan to purchase a retractable screen dome as a cover as well. When we poured our patio, we planned for a 48" fire pit and left a circle that size for a kit. We selected this kit because we like the way it looks and it is 48". When we actually placed the blocks in our 48" concrete circle the last block didn't fit into the 5" gap remaining. Our options were to cut the last block in each layer to fit, raise the pit higher so the bottom layer wasn't below the concrete, or use 18 instead of 19 blocks for each course and leave a tiny space between each block all the way around to divide the 5" gap evenly between each block. We ended up doing the last option and we're happy with the result. There are 1/8" gaps between each block now, which lets air flow to the fire. The heavy duty steel ring still fits inside the now smaller-diameter fire pit. Lesson Learned: If you plan to put within a concrete circle consider making your concrete circle slightly bigger than 48".

      A few of the stones had chips out of them, but no cracked stones. You can be liberal with the masonry glue there is plenty provided. I had to by a caulk gun the proper size as it is larger than the regular tubes. Had two fires so far and no issues.

      My first experience building a fire pit. Honestly, it was exceptionally easy, but a bit time-consuming. I built it into a sloped backyard, so leveling the bottom was the hardest part. After that, it was pretty easy.

      This fire pit is perfect! We leveled ground and put stone dust down. Then built the fire pit. It is a good size. We have six Adirondack chairs comfortably around it. Cooked Samoas and added color crystals to flames so they would change colors. Kids loved that! Fun evening away from electronics!

      Perfect!
      This fire pit is exactly what we wanted and lived up to its description. Unable to order on line so I call customer service, where I received the best customer service. Delivered as promised and placed in the exact location we asked for even though we weren't home.

        Great Fire Pit for price, practicality!
        I'll be lazy & say read the other reviews as I did so there are no surprises, the only thing I'll add that some may find refreshing is that you CAN put this on flat ground and level it relatively easily as long as you prep the ground and add a little topsoil to make leveling easier. I was very impressed with the weight & grade of both the stone and ring, as well as the cooking grate. Follow the instructions that are availabile, make sure you buy about 4 bags (14L) of pea gravel & 2-3 of paver sand ($25 or so) & my suggestion is to pay the $50 to get it delivered. One last thing, don't have the delivery company set it right where you want to put it, if possible, set it close so that you can move it once and not have to move it far. Buy a large caulking/glue gun if you don't have one. If you have these materials ready, it's a 2 hour project tops. Turns out beautiful!

          Good looking pit, easy to assemble. We did minor leveling before hand, used sand as a base, then used more sand inside the pit. Used some lava rocks designed for charcoal grills on top of the sand inside, to bring level of base up to the black ring. Looks great, and we have built great fires already. The only frustrating thing was the delivery.

          Everything was delivered on time and it was on two pallets already put together. A few stones had some minor chips. But they were not deal breaking. Put them on the bottom row. Install was easy and the fire pit looks very good installed. Buying the kit keeps you from piecing this all together. You just re-assemble it as it was delivered. You don't necessarily have to you the stone adhesive either. Stones stay in place pretty well. The cooking grate adds a classy touch that is very useful. Overall, happy with purchase!

          Fantastic family project
          The directions were well written, simple and easy to follow. Having my grandson help made the installation a little longer, but was certainly worth the time. I have plans to install another fire pit for another family member.
