The Basics

Remember how much fun it was to gather round the campfire and sleep under the stars? With one of these fire pits, you can rekindle that old feeling for a fraction of the cost of an outdoor fireplace and without having to do a lick of work besides taking it out of the box and setting it up. These instant hearths let you stretch your outdoor living season from spring to fall. Unlike the campfires of yore, portable pits come in numerous styles and materials to suit your home's architecture and burn a variety of fuels, including wood, propane, and gel. So bust out the marshmallows, get comfy, and rejoice in knowing that when the last embers die, you can retreat indoors, to the softness of your very own bed.
