No matter what color option you choose, however, you’ll get a unit with a handcrafted glass fiber reinforced cement (GFRC) design that’s been built to last.
The Portos 68 offers impressive performance, as well. With its 65,000 BTU heat output, you’ll get a strong and reliable flame, while your choice of either a basic match light ignition or a convenient electronic ignition offers some flexibility with budget and operation.
The Best Fire Pit Under $500
For those who want to add the ambiance of a fire pit without breaking the bank, the Napoleon Patioflame is a great choice. Offering a no-frills design, this fire pit is as low-hassle as they come and even includes fire glass for a contemporary appearance.
With its 60,000 BTU heat output, this fire pit puts off an impressive flame. This unit features a reliable manual gas valve for a low-maintenance design. It’s also approved for use on wooden decks, stone, or concrete patios, making it a great option for those who value simplicity and convenience.
The Best Wood-Burning Fire Pit
The Fire Pit Art Saturn Wood Fire Pit is our favorite wood-burning fire pit this year. Constructed from ¼-inch thick carbon steel, this fire pit will patina over time to ensure every fire pit is one of a kind. Like the planet it’s named after, the Saturn features an impressive ringed design—great for resting beverages as the fire winds down for the night.
The interior of this fire pit is coated with special paint designed to resist high temperatures, while the interior drain allows rainwater to escape. As an added bonus, the included cover helps protect the unit when not in use and adds convenient table space.
The Best Fire Pit Coffee Table
Patio table or fire pit? Why not both? The Outdoor GreatRoom Company Montego Fire Table does double duty as a beautiful fire feature as well as a functional chat height patio table. A powerful 80,000 BTU burner system takes the chill out of cool nights, while the standard diamond fire beads offer a contemporary appearance and integrate well into any space.
This fire table features two ignition options available at purchase. For a more economical option, select the battery-powered spark ignitor. However, upgrading to the automated Direct Spark Ignition system allows for complete electronic control from a remote control or wall switch.
The Best Contemporary Fire Pit
Safe. Simple. Supercast. The Outdoor GreatRoom Company Cover Gas Fire Pit is our choice for the best contemporary fire table. The Supercast concrete construction offers a strong design that easily works in any modern space. This look is enhanced by the included diamond fire glass and grey glass burner cover to create a simple, yet attractive appearance for your patio.
The centerpiece of this system is its impressive 108,000 BTU Crystal Fire Plus burner designed to provide a full, natural burning flame. This fire table can be configured with either a basic battery-powered spark ignition or upgraded with a Direct Spark Ignition system.
The Best Smart Fire Pit
For those looking to combine the timeless beauty of a fire pit with today’s best tech, the Hearth Products Controls Sedona Fire Pit is just what’s needed. This all-in-one kit combines a premium copper bowl with HPC’s industry-leading electronic ignition fire pit insert for the perfect marriage of form and function.
What makes this fire pit great for tech enthusiasts is the HPC Fire App, available from the Apple Store or Google Play.
