This fire pit was very easy to assemble, though time consuming. I chose this pit after extensive research because (a) you can see the whole fire, not just the flames peaking out of the top and (b) you can roll back the top to adjust the fire rather than be required to lift the whole top off and find a suitable place to put the hot grate. So why 3 stars? A design flaw that none of the photos depict. The large handle in the front is not centered in relation to the legs. I took the top off and matched the holes up in many configurations. No dice. I called Landmann customer service. They were aware of the problem and suggested I could modify the pit and drill 6 different holes through two layers of metal. I do not have the tools to do this. In short, I think the company should offer photos that do not disguise the design flaw. I will use this pit and enjoy my evening fires. However, if I had seen an honest rendering of the fire pit, I would have purchased another. Yes, without even using the pit, I am disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My tall and BIG Fire Pit arrived from Walmart on time for my event, and I could track its trek to my house online. The pit itself is over the top FABULOUS. I probably looked at 20 different ones, including all the ones at Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears/KMart and such places. There were a lot of pieces in that box, for sure. But I paid the college-aged neighbor kid $20.00 to construct it and he had no issue or complaints about the assembly. The biggest deal was breaking down the enormous cardboard box for the recycling can! The basin is very large and that combined with the height of the pit made me think I was preparing an old-time country bonfire vs. a suburban fire on my patio. We're in a fire zone in SoCal and so full-containment of any flying embers is a top priority and this pit supplied that PLUS a full view of the flames. Other pits obscure that full view with their basic construction. Online reviews of this product mostly reflect my same sentiment: a great product at a great Walmart price. I plan on enjoying many seasons' worth of big, crackling fires with my heavy-duty and sturdy new fire pit!

My son in NH was looking for a new fire pit. He didn't want a table model, just a pit on his patio near his picnic table and pool. We checked several local stores and the fire pits we saw all seemed very cheap, like they would burn up within one season (get brittle, etc.) and they were rickety. We found the Ball 'O Fire pit online and it fit the bill perfectly, so we ordered it. To our amazement, it is extremely durable, the handle to lift the cover doesn't get hot enough to burn you, it is made of excellent quality steel, and the feet are very sturdy. The pan is removable - once cool, you simply lift it out and remove the ashes! I was so impressed I bought one for myself when I returned home to Texas! I even burn it in 90 degree temps I love it so much! Congrats on a stupendous product!!!

I bought this for my husband because he has been wanting a fire pit for our river house for some time. We considered many decorative pits, but after reading the reviews for this one decided to get it. I put it together myself with no problem in less than 2 hours. All pieces were there. Wish the front would close more closely but that is the design. It is fabulous and my husband loves it! Love the fact that all we have to do is open the front to add more wood and next time we are going to roast hot dogs. I am always nervous about fires on the beach and felt comfortable with this pit because of all of the ash it captured through the mesh. small sparks escaped, but the more dangerous larger sparks were contained.
