As the sun sets on a beautiful summer day, you don’t want it to end. Instead of going inside, you can stack wood into a fire pit and enjoy the crackle of the flames as you sit with friends and family in your backyard. A fire pit can be used beyond summer, too. Imagine the leaves turning a stunning red and orange while you enjoy the view sitting by your fire pit.

Spark Screen and Poker
The spark screen and poker are two of the most important parts of your fire pit. Once you place the wood and light it, you’ll need to contain the embers within the pit. This is done with the screen. You want to enjoy a roaring outdoor fire, not dodge glowing embers that pop out of the fire pit and try to singe your hair or skin.
To keep the fire going, it helps to be able to move the wood around inside the pit. As the fire starts to die, you can use the poker to rearrange the wood, so that untouched wood has a chance in the flames. Be careful of the heat from the fire when you pull off the screen. The fire will heat up the metal. The ring at the top of the screen could potentially burn your skin.
With a fire pit, family and friends will sit in a small circle around the flames. Unless you want to be right on top of the fire pit, you’ll have to sit at a distance. Some fire pits have solid sides that don’t allow everyone to experience the glow of the fire from all directions. This fire pit is unique because it has lattice-like sides that let everyone experience the light and heat of the fire.
Between the screen cover and the open sides, you’ll have a wide, 360 degree view of the fire. Inside the lattice-like cutouts is wire mesh, so you don’t have to worry about the embers escaping from the side, either.
Large Fire Bowl
This is a substantial sized fire bowl that will allow you to put large logs or pieces of wood into the fire. It’s almost 2 feet of space inside the fire pit. While it’s a large fire bowl, it’s intimate as well. You’ll easily be able to enjoy the fire while chatting with friends across from you. Whether it’s chatting, guitar playing or singing around the fire, it’s not so large that you can’t enjoy the company of everyone sitting in your backyard.
From the sturdy feet to the ring handles on the side, this fire pit was constructed with sturdy steel that can stand up to high temperatures. At the same time, the heat from the fire can be absorbed by the sides of the fire pit. This is great on cool nights when you want to incredible warmth from a fire. It means you have to be cautious, though. The metal can become incredibly hot to the touch. Children should be kept at a distance to the fire pit at all times.
