The fire pit is functional and does its job, but it's the cheapest on the market for a reason. The black coating (which prevents rusting) was applied in a swirl-like pattern, and missed a lot of the bronze bowl (most of it, actually). The threads that the M6 screws go into on the legs and on the larger ring were messed up in the coating process, making the screws unable to be screwed into the mounting holes. To take care of these two problems, I chased the threads with an M6 tap to clean them out, and purchased the Mainstays fire pit cover to protect this from the rain (which I was planning on doing anyway). The assembly instructions that come with the fire pit state very clearly that there is no warranty of any kind on any of the parts or the assembly (though Wal-Mart has a pretty good return policy and would probably take it back or exchange it if you find something wrong). Again, you get what you pay for. I was expecting a solid coating to prevent rust and to look nicer, and was expecting to not have to clean out the screw hole threads before I could assemble the fire pit, but it isn't the end of the world. I wanted a cheap fire pit, and that's what I got.
