Fire Pit Table - Find Out what is Available

Fire pit tables are hot! And the good news is that there are many choices available for homeowners to enjoy. What started out as a simple fire contained by a fire bowl has grown to include a mantle or table top which surrounds the bowl.

What's available: Most mantel/table surrounds are made from some kind of stone, like granite, that doesn't conduct heat and get really hot while the fire's going.

Want to use the table: It's a good idea to check with the manufacturer to find out whether or not the model you are interested in is safe for placing a beverage or snack on the surface while in use: (if using proper fire safety precautions).

If you are looking to buy a fire pit table and have a limited budget take a look at some of the pre-made ones. We have found a few to recommend to you. These include two propane ones, one is by Blue Rhino and the other is by Coleman. For a woodburning table we suggest one made by Uniflame.

Important Safety Precautions:

Fire pits are designed to contain the components of a fire. If you buy a wood burning fire pit, using the screen protector that is included prevents hot coals from sparking a potential fire. Using common sense is essential and that includes never leaving the pit unattended while in use or allowing kids to play unsupervised around the fire. Additionally, surfaces can get extremely hot so make sure there is enough space between seating and open flames.
