Features and construction

A steel rectangular box will have either a black or gray powder-coated finish. A control knob for flame control will be on one end. No provision for a igniter will be included for this fire pit, bring your bic to get your fire going.

Each of the fire pits will have a rectangle shaped fire bowl. A long tube will be used for your burner and will have clear glass rocks for media. These rocks will give off a nice glow while your fire is burning.

When you are done with your fire and your fire pit is cooled off, a poly cover is included to cover your fire pit from the outdoor weather conditions. You can also use this cover when you store the fire pit when no fire is needed.

The burner will put our around 10,000 BTUs of heat on high. No mention of how long the 1 pound tank will last on high setting.

Size and special options

At less than 10 pounds, it will be easy to attache and remove this fire pit from your table when needed. No special equipment will be needed. It is light enough to take camping or to the beach if you have a portable table with an umbrella hole or one is present where you go. Most campsite picnic tables do not have holes for umbrellas.

The fire pit will be 14.5 inches long, 6.5 inches wide, and 7.5 inches above the table. The propane tank and attaching hardware will hang under the table. I would always start with a fresh tank to make sure I don't have to change it during the evening, as you will have to get under the center of your table to unscrew the old tank and reattach a new tank.

There is an adaptor and hose to attach this tabletop fire pit to a 20-pound propane tank if you have the room to sit one under your table.

A poly cover is included for storage of your fire pit after it cools. Put it on too soon and you will ruin your cover.

Assembly and care

Very little assembly will be needed for this fire pit before use. The fire rocks will be in a bag and will need to be emptied into the burn bowl. You may want to keep a container for them when the fire pit is in storage to keep them from spilling out.

Most of the assembly will ocour each time you use your fire pit and attach it to your patio table. Just insert the threaded portion into the hole and turn the large threaded nut onto the bottm until your fire pit is secure. Then the 1 pound propane tank can be screwed onto the bottom of the fire pit.

No igniter will be included for this fire pit, you will need your long matches or a lighter to get the flame going. once the flame is going you can use the control knob to adjust the flame to your desired height.
