I bought this firepit for my cement patio. I didn't want the hassle of a wood fire (prep work, lighting, smoke, burn down time, etc.). This is the prefect alternative. Lights easily, provides plenty of heat, great for smores and hot dogs, hooked easily to a 20# grill propane cylinder. I have a five year old son and a lab with a tail of death so I really love that the outside ring does not get hot. I wish it had the copper bowl pictured on this site. The bowl is "veined penny" and more shallow than I expected. However, still an excellent firepit. I did a lot of research on propane firepits and this os the only one with the high btu rating. Flames are adjustable. I only have it on high until the charcoal gets hot and then the low setting is plenty hot. You do get better flame height if you turn the valve on slowly and hold it in for a bit per the instructions. I bought an extension hose and doubled the length with no problem. I have not had any problems with this unit and don't forsee any in the future!
Great heat output, Easy to Use, Easy to set up Cons:
Bowl not copper finish, Bowl not as deep as pic
