You’ve been to the neighbors’ house and said to yourself: I want one. Then at the store you said, I don’t know, $400, how often are we really going to use it? Does that question sound the same when the Fire Pit is just $178? Because Monday at Amazon the AZ Patio Heaters GS-F-PC Propane Fire Pit with Antique Bronze Finish (read: it’s sharp looking) is part of an online holiday fire sale.
The 38″ square tabletop is 28″ tall and features a 17″ burn area that heats about a 15-foot diameter. It runs on propane. Winning an average 4-of-5 star rating in more than 570 Amazon customer reviews. One common complaint is that if you let the rain get at it, you’ll have discoloration or worse. But there are a lot of high marks for quality, “heavier and nicer than I anticipated.” Most attest that this Patio Heater is an beautiful accent piece. Ease of assembly got low marks even from many who otherwise praised the product. One reviewer cautions consumers to “READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND FOLLOW THEM SLOWLY AND METHODICALLY STEP BY STEP.” So many people have put it together that the instructions must be ultimately correct, though one reviewer does say “directions were compiled by psycho mutants.”
