It does what it’s supposed to do
I bought this a few weeks ago and it’s been sitting exposed to the elements the entire time. We’ve used it a couple times and it’s worked well, but we’ll have to wait a year or so to see how it’s fairing then. It was reasonably easy to build, with only one problematic bolt, but the instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. The one downside is the colour, I would say it’s definitely got a “pinkish” undertone to it, which I hope fades with more use. All-in-all happy with our purchase especially with it being 20%. I would not buy at full price as I would rather spend a few more dollars and build one made from bricks. If you’re looking for an enclosed pre-built fire “pit” and not too fussed about looks this does the trick.

Still early but like the quality and dimensions
Have not had a chance to use frequently enough to give an experienced review, but we like the size as it is perhaps 1/3 larger than most of the fire pits around, the metal seems a slightly higher gauge (still looking for a cast iron design as the ideal). And the fact that it has a bottom draft vent and a grate to place the wood on allows for good air flow and a good clean burn. As with any sheet steel fire pit, time will tell about its durability.

Look is good, quality isn’t
We bought this for Father’s Day
Think you get what you pay for here. The material is super thin and we really had to fight with it to assemble especially the doors which do not line up. We used it anyway (kids wanted a fire for dad) and with wonky doors it has a real rustic look lol. All kidding aside we like the overall look of it and it functions well. Would have rather spend an extra $100 for something better quality.
