A fire pit table or if you prefer a fire table is a table which comes with a fire bowl integrated into it so that instead of just having an ordinary table, you get a table with fire feature.

They are are built just like dining tables or coffee tables of either rectangular, square or even round shape. They are designed with a kind of box-like surround that forms a surround around the burner.
Like the usual fire pits, fire pit tables can either be built permanently or they can be can be moved around but even those that can be moved are not so portable because of their heavy-duty nature.
Fire pit tables frames are made from materials such as cast iron, aluminum, steel and come in a variety of shapes, styles and sizes with the option of burning on either propane, natural gas, gel, ethanol or wood. The tabletop surface is usually made of varying decorative materials like slate, marble, granite or powder coated metal finish.
Some fire pit tables come with their own table top covers to protect the burner from the elements when not in use and to allow you transform your fire pit into a fully functioning table.
