Deep Bowl Design for Logs
While some fire pits are only large enough for small pieces of wood and kindling, this fire bowl is pretty deep. You’ll be able to place split logs right into the bowl quite easily and still have room for the mesh guard over the top.
When you are ready to roast marshmallows or hot dogs on a stick, you can remove the guard, add more logs, and have a roaring fire for toasting. If you plan on using this fire pit around children, make sure they’re supervised properly when roasting marshmallows.
Spark Guard for Safety
One of the dangers of a fire is the way embers can escape and float through the air. When you’re at the beach or campground, there’s a certain amount of safety around the fire pit since it’s sand or gravel. With a fire pit in your backyard, you’ll want to be careful to ensure that the embers stay inside the pit itself.
Every fire pit should have a spark guard to protect everyone around the fire. In fact, you can place the logs in the fire pit and immediately place the guard over it to keep them embers and sparks contained. The flames and heat will still rise from the pit. It’ll be easy to roast marshmallows with the guard in place if you have little ones near the fire pit.
Lattice with Mesh
The cut out lattice design on the side of the fire pit allows the light and heat to escape from the sides. It’s a great way to keep the fire contained but still enjoy the illumination from all angles. You won’t have to worry about the embers or sparks popping out of the sides of the fire pit and injuring someone or starting a grass fire.
With all the heat from the sides of the fire pit, you would normally have to line the area underneath with gravel or stones. The base of the fire pit is a high enough pedestal that it’s not a problem. The underside should never get hot enough to start a fire in the grass.
The fire pit will need to be assembled when it gets to your home. Fortunately, there are instructions that come with the fire pit, but still, it’s simple to place the base and the bowl together. There are 4 nuts and screws that come with the fire pit. The holes are already pre-drilled, so you don’t have to worry about attaching the screws in the right spot.

Can ashes blow out of the fire bowl during windy days?

Will this item rust if left outdoors?
