Rated 5 out of 5 by jack10562 Good Free-standing Fire Pit
Ordered this and it was on back-order for several weeks. It finally arrived and it was very easy to assemble. It looks great on my patio!
It's best to have a 9/16" wrench to securely snug the leg attachment nuts. I will be drilling some small holes in the bottom so any rain will drain out on it's own.
Be sure to follow the requirement to add sand in the base first otherwise I believe it will surely burn through after a few seasons if you don't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rick12345 outdoor fire pit
This outdoor fire pit is for outdoor use only. That is the first line in the section that says read first rules for big sky stars and moons fire pit safe operation. I find it ironic that on the back when I got to where it said helpful hints the second thing it says is keep the fire pit out of the weather and elements. It looks good but I guess to telling me if I leave it out all summer it'll probably rusts and if I don't put in the garage during the winter I can forget about even having a rusty pit for next summer we will see.

Arrived on time and in great shape. I found it very easy to assemble and very stable. I am not pleased with the dust cover which is worthless. I have used the pit a few times. It comes as advertised. I am very happy with it.

Recently purchased - Appears to be built well and contains a fire with safety. Screen on top stops hot ashes from escaping. I drilled several very small holes in the bottom to allow any water to escape. Very satisfied with the unit and with L.L. Bean's service (as usual).

Rated 5 out of 5 by dappt Delighted with it
We haven't used this much yet, but preliminary evaluation is very positive. It was easy to put together. We followed instructions and filled the bottom with sand . ( FYI, one Ace Hardware guy said to NOT get sand with silica in it, for the purpose of using in the interior of a fire pit.) We loved how deep the pit was, so felt safe with our fire not getting out of control. Love the option of the grill. It seems to be a well made piece of equipment that will give lots of years of campfire enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VVT44 Excellent Fire Pit!
I got the fire pit a couple of weeks ago. Already had four fires in it and I absolutly love it. Easy to put together and quite sturdy. The cutouts of the stars and moon add a real nice visual touch. Comes with a fire poker which is handy. Excellent product and I'm glad I made this purchase!

Well designed fire pit allows air flow to make a great fire. Wonderful value because it includes everything you need; grate, mesh cover, sturdy poker, and even plastic dust cover.

We are having so much fun with this fire pit. We roast marshmallows every week and invite different friends and neighbors over every time. So easy to use, durable, and so much fun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shaman5 Quality lacking
The packaging the item came in was superior, but the quality is only fair. The handle for the ash screen was bent down; almost to the top of the screen. The male ends of the three components, which make up the ring that surrounds the pit do not fit securely in the female sleeves. I also question the heat resistant quality of the paint used - haven't fired it up yet.
I don't recall reading that this requires assembly, which it does. Some folks aren't as handy as others, so don't expect to receive a product that it ready to be used out of the box. NOTE - the unit must have three fires in it prior to cooking food over or on it. That doesn't sound like a heat sealed component.
