Like the other Blue Rhino fire pit table models the Hex LP Gas Fire Pit Bowl with Slate Tile Mantel is a heavy duty and well made fire pit designed to last years above all else. It features a propane-powered fire bowl at its center with an attractive surrounding slate tile pattern for increased aesthetic appeal. The sides are made of plastic on steel frames which makes me a bit skeptical about the durability.
With a rating of 30,000 BTUs, you can be sure that there will be enough heat generated to keep warmth on a cool evening.
Inside the panel doors, there is a sliding shelf for placing your propane tank that makes installing and replacing your tank easy.
The slate mantel is also wide enough to allow you to place your drinks and snacks or even feet.
The Hex LP Gas Fire Pit and features a push-button lighter for easy lighting of the fire. Glass for the steel outdoor gas fire bowl is included.
Once assembled, you will find the to be a structurally sturdy sound fire pit ( the plastic aside) that will not only serve to provide warmth, but also a decorative accessory that will bring style to your outdoor setting.
Assembly is time consuming but easy to do by following the step by step guide.
As usual, the cover is weak and flimsy and will most likely tear after few uses, if not immediately.
Some deliveries to customers did not include the fire pit glass as required.

This may be an isolated case but, you might have some trouble lighting the fire pit for some reason initially. According to Blue rhino customer care, there are a series of things you will need to do to light her up. If this happens to you, just call the Blue Rhino customer care.
