A Cast Iron Fire Pit for a Strong, Durable Pit
You will love these cast iron fire and steel fire pits. There are so many decorative options you are sure to find the perfect one to compliment your outdoor living style. With a steel firepit you know you are getting a solid, quality pit that will last a long time.
Since cast iron is extremely heavy, a fire pit made from cast iron is seldom intended to be portable. Most are large pieces that are moved only for maintenance or winter storage. Fire ball and fire bowl designs are especially alluring pieces. They are modified versions of the cast iron fire bowls used aboard ancient marine vessels. The elevated bowl radiates heat in all directions, including toward awaiting feet.
Cast Iron is also preferred for chimney-designed models. Sometimes known as chimeneas, they traditionally stand between three to five feet tall and emanate warmth in much the same manner as a pot-bellied stove. They are sometimes preferred over standard models because the chimney funnels smoke up and away from guests.
