Some of the positive reviews

“Christmas gift for my son! He absolutely loves it! I was amazed at the size!”

“Oh ~~I really love it. It is big and easy to assemble.”

“Absolutely love it! Perfect size for the 5-7 of us that gather around it; and we all can feel some heat. Have not used the grill surface except once or twice, but there have been no issues with cracking or rust. It does take significantly more wood than our last one…”

“Awesome love it and you can BBQ on it too I would recommend”

“Put it together on 5 minutes and I am very impressed with the quality!”

Critical Reviews

Seems the major problem was that the packaging as most of the negative reviews were about damaging  and denting.

“Looks great but came dented and warped…”

“…lid is cheap arrived damaged/deformed. Poker threads snapped first use…”

“The cover deteriorates after awhile (1.5 years?)… the top is opening up and deforming…”

“Can’t beat this thing for the money! Good quality for half the price of what a similar table costs…”

Negative reviews”

Seems the issue has mostly to do with burner system in some of the fire pits.

“Works great sometimes but has random flameouts.”

“…the burner only stays lit for about 10 seconds and consistently will always turn off after it makes a click noise…”

“…Installed igniter is no good on mine. The flame will go out when on or around high setting…”

There you have your list of the best selling and top rated fire pits and its obvious the Landmann Brand is the most popular.

Except for the Best Choice fire pit table, all these fire pits currently cost less than $100.  They are all quite durable and okay fire pits but if I were to recommend one of these fire pits,  the Landmann USA Big Sky Fire Pit, Wildlife would be my choice. Unless it comes damaged or you leave it exposed to the elements, this one is guaranteed to last.
