~ What ~
Made of a durable weather-resistant fiberglass concrete, this tabletop fire pit measures 15 inches tall and 11 inches square, weighing 16.5 pounds. With a slate black finish, it comes with a 10,000 BTU stainless steel burner, fire glass rocks, beige PVC cover, and touch-up paint. With no standard LP propane tank included, the unit does have an electronic ignition with high, low, and off flame options. Minimal assembly is required, and instructions are included.
~ Why ~
I like that I can set up this compact fire pit on either a cement porch or outside brick patio, hook up a propane tank, and instantly have the glow of a small bonfire. It took less than two minutes to assemble. The instructions were easy to understand: screw in a propane tank in the hollow area underneath the unit, add the glass chips around the burner, turn to High, and light a match, adjusting the flame where you want it. It worked instantly, offering three to five inch high flames on the highest level.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not like having a hot fire-inducing product in their possession, afraid it will catch other things on fire; but with precautions, it is safe to use. Others may think the unit is too small so be sure to check the dimensions.
~ Wish ~
With black slate being the only option, I wish other colors were available. Due to its small size, it would be ideal if other sizes were offered. The only confusion I had in setting up the unit was if the glass chips should cover the burner or not as the paperwork said “around” the burner, yet many of the photographs have it covered.
~ Want ~
If you are looking a compact, small firepit for a small patio, balcony, or area, this pillar-style outdoor gas fireplace would warm up any outdoor environment.
Thanks to Best Choice for this sample that I am freely evaluating.
