This is our first fire pit and I did quite a bit of looking and reading reviews before finalizing on this particular one. We have a second home in Wyoming and the design fits the Western theme perfectly. It is deep and great for getting a good bed of coals going. It is a nice width, as well. It came fully assembled and was easy to move out to the patio. I love the removable grill for the option of cooking over the fire, and the long fire poker/spark screen lifter that comes with it. The cover fits snugly and stays on despite the wild winds we have out here. We have enjoyed using it and are very happy we chose this one.
