Enjoy cozier outdoor gatherings in any season

A wood burning fire pit is one of the simplest ways to transform your outdoor space into a relaxing getaway that feels as cozy as it looks.  

If you want the allure of a crackling campfire, the aroma of smoldering wood, and the warmth of exposed flames, then a wood burning fire pit is the way to go. Not to mention, there’s no assembly required! 

With so many fire pit designs on the market, it can be tough to narrow down the best options for your space. You want a gathering spot for your family and friends that looks great but is also affordable and easy to set up.  

To help you find the best fire pit for your needs, we’ve compiled a list of our top five wood burning models based on quality, design, durability, and customer satisfaction. 

#5: ASIA WOOD BURNING FIRE PIT by Fire Pit Art  

What Makes It Great:

Meticulously handcrafted in the USA from thick, carbon steel, this sculptural fire pit’s wide, shallow-bowl design sits extra low to the ground, offering an incredible view of the fire from every angle.  

Key Features:

The Asia comes in a variety of sizes, from compact 36-inch models to massive, 72-inch models. The inside of the bowl is protected with a high-temperature coating, while the outside features a maintenance-free, iron-oxide finish that naturally darkens over time.

What Makes It Great:

The Oil Rubbed Bronze Fire Pit’s durable, steel design stands up to the elements in any environment for a rustic, charming focal point you’ll enjoy in your outdoor space for years to come. 

Key Features:

Suitable for areas of all sizes, this fire pit is 32-inches in diameter and 16-inches deep to hold an ample amount of wood. It also features mesh walls with an open crisscross pattern to create airflow for better heat distribution and larger flames. The included spark screen allows you to gather around the fire safety, while an optional weatherproof cover helps prevent rust. 

#3: BARZELONIA ROUND COPPER WOOD BURNING FIRE PIT by Fire Sense

Perfect as the main focal point on a small patio or as an eye-catching accent piece in a large, open backyard, this 26-inch fire bowl features an intricate, decorative steel design and polished copper finish.

Handcrafted in Ohio from heavy-gauge, American-made steel, the Stellar Artisan is low-maintenance, and built to outlast the weather in any region.
