Decorative and delightful

If you're looking for something small to start your fire pit journey, this cute little stars and moon option is a great choice. It has a cover to keep the fire reasonably contained, and the designs really make it stand out. It isn't huge, so it's great for a smaller space like a patio.

Try some propane

"This fire pit exceeded my expectations. It came preassembled. I only had to attach the gas tube and put in the lava rocks. The lava rocks supplied are plenty to fill it up. Overall, I have been very happy with this fire pit. It comes with a nice cover that is tight enough to secure it in the rain." If you're less interested in big pretty flames and more interested in powerful heat, this propane fire pit is the way to go. It packs a serious punch.

A serious centerpiece

Maybe you're not interested in something small. Maybe you want a fire pit that's a statement piece and will be the focal point of your yard. Don't you worry: we're about to move into some of the big guys. This beautiful fire pit is propane-fueled and gives off quite a bit of heat, but also is a wonderful space to gather around in your yard. Plus there's enough table space around it that you can place food and drinks on the edges without getting too close to the fire.

Big and Bold

" I LLOOOVVEEEE THIS TABLE!!!! It puts off a lot of heat, looks amazing, easy to assemble, and matches all of my patio furniture perfectly. I have wicker furniture in taupe/gray and it blends perfectly. A perfect supplement to any coffee or frosty adult beverage. My porch is now my most favorite place in the house beside the kitchen (where a woman belongs)." A few important things about this fire pit: it has a glass wind shield so your flames stay warm and powerful no matter what the weather. It has more space around it than almost any other table/fire pit combo. And it's a full 52 inches, so there's plenty of space for everyone.

A delicate option

I love that this fire pit manages to look delicate while holding fire! It comes with a spark screen and a poker so that you can remove the screen safely and tend to your fire. It's also nice that it has a small shelf at the bottom so you can put any fire-related tools right there, easy at hand.

30 inch diameter for plenty of space

I am in love with the look of this fire pit: it has a bronze base that looks almost like you'd find it in a medieval castle (and that makes me feel very cool). It's also big, with plenty of space for the whole family to gather around. This is one of the more heavy-duty options out there.

Unique side table layout

This is SO COOL. While many fire pits have space around the edges to put drinks or food, this one comes with an attached side table for even more horizontal surface. Even better, that side table is a neat little storage space for the propane tank. While many fire pits have the wicker siding, this one has a more farmhouse look, which is a great piece of variation.

A rustic look

I like that this fire pit gives the look of being built up over years thanks to the rock facade. It's incredibly easy to use, and you can even bring it with you to use at the beach or while camping. You will absolutely be the coolest friend if you roll up with this.

Convert from firepit to table

When fire pits aren't in use, they can be a pretty big waste of space. Not this one: the cover lets it transition smoothly to a table space then back again when you're done. I love that the cover doesn't make it look like a big, bulky piece of storage and instead gives you another functional use.

Get that camping feel at home

One of my favorite things about camping is sitting in a slightly janky chair around a fire while roasting marshmallows. Some of these fire pits are too high to use a proper camping chair, which is why I love that this one is low to the ground: it really gives me the feel of being out camping. Perfection.
