Editor's Notes

May 14, 2020:

Removed the Catalina Creations, the AmazonBasics Portable, the Endless Summer Fire Pit, and the Lava Heat Italia Lorenzo because of availability issues. Added the Sunjoy Heirloom, the Peaktop HR22818, the Endless Summer GAD15257, and the Catalina Creations AD364.

It is very important to take all of the necessary safety precautions when using an outdoor fireplace. Fire can be very unpredictable, particularly when burning wood since it produces embers that can travel quite a ways to start unwanted fires. The threat of wandering embers can be mostly mitigated by looking for fireplaces with spark screens such as the Peaktop HR22818 and the Catalina Creations AD364 but you should also make sure that you avoid placing your pit under overhanging tree limbs or structures and that you keep your fire wood racks at a safe distance. Other things to remember is that you should not use a fireplace on bare wood. You can have a fireplace on your deck but it is best to use a fire mat.

When shopping around for a gas or propane fireplace, something to look for is an easily accessible shut off valve like those present on the Napoleon Victorian Patioflame and the Outland Fire Table. This allows you to quickly react to gas leaks or other emergencies. Use common sense, have a fire extinguisher handy, and read the user manual.
