Pricewise: Copper Fire Pits
Gathering around a fire in the cool of the evening is so pleasant that it can be hard to get rid of your guests. Prefab fire pits make building an outdoor blaze easy—no hauling of stones to make a campfire—and they offer the plus of portability; people have been known to take them on picnics. We found two with similar profiles: a high-end wood-burner with a solid-copper dish, and a copper-finish budget version that is kinder to air quality because it burns propane. That’s just one thing to keep in mind before investing in fuel, heavy metal, and a year’s worth of marshmallows.
