Warming Trends Crossfire Burner Review

Crossfire Burners are easily some of the most highly engineered fire pit burners in the entire industry—with a price tag to match. However, if you don't mind the upfront cost, a Crossfire burner may pay for itself in the long term thanks to its durable brass construction and lifetime warranty. Warming Trends can easily customize burners as well, making it easier to create a unique fire pit from scratch or retrofit an already–existing fire pit enclosure.

We carry nothing but the best fire pit burners at Spotix.com. Any burner on our site will be objectively better than the units you'll find at your local big box store. If you want the "best of the best", however, then the answer is clear: Warming Trends Crossfire Burners.

Overall Build Quality


When ignited next to a traditional gas burner, it is immediately clear the Crossfire burner offers a unique visual appeal. The burner produces a taller, brighter, and fuller flame than its peers through a process known as the Venturi Effect. With this burner port design, rapidly moving gas pulls oxygen into the burner. This combination causes an optimal air-to-fuel ratio at the point of combustion, creating a powerful—and efficient—flame presence. Short answer? Better fire with less gas.


One of the biggest selling points of the Crossfire burners are their solid brass construction. Although 304 stainless steels burners will last many years if properly maintained, there will come a time when they need to be replaced. This is particularly true in coastal climates with salty air or regions with harsh winters. These problems are eliminated with brass construction.

Yes, you'll pay a premium for this material, but you'll get a burner capable of easily outliving you (and likely the next generation). That's not an exaggeration—Warming Trends offers a lifetime warranty on all their brass products. As a bonus, all Warming Trends products are manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.


One of the other major selling points for Warming Trends burners is their modularity. Although we offer many "standard" sizes for Warming Trends burners at Spotix, you will not be limited to the sizes seen on our website. Custom builds are quite common with Warming Trends, and some of these installations can be seen in our Inspiration Gallery.

With other burners, custom sizing can significantly add to lead times. There are also special considerations to be made for electronic ignition systems, pans, etc. Since Warming Trends burners are constructed in house at the Colorado plant, custom projects only minimally affect shipping times. The Warming Trends team can also account for special sizing with their ignition systems. Instead of forcing a standard unit to fit your nonstandard fire pit, you'll have a truly one–of–a–kind piece built exactly to your specifications.

How it Compares Versus Traditional 304 Stainless Steel Burners

Comparing a Warming Trends burner to a traditional 304 stainless steel burner is like comparing a high–end sports car to a luxury sedan. Both may be fine cars, but they're designed for different purposes. Through not an "apples to apples" comparison, there are some differences worth keeping in mind. As previously mentioned, price offers a large differentiating factor. While a 24–inch penta burner with a pan will cost several hundred dollars, a similarly sized Warming Trends burner will cost three to four times as much. Keep in mind, however, the cost of the Crossfire burner may be less when spread over the life of the unit.
