But the days are getting just a little bit longer, and temperatures will be milder before you know it. That itch to spend more time outside is real! We’ve got ways to help you enjoy your outdoor spaces sooner in our showroom—and one of the best is with a propane fire bowl or fire pit .

What’s a Propane Fire Bowl?

It’s a decorative structure that produces a clean-burning fire without smoke or ash. Further, fire bowls offer a more streamlined, modern look that you can customize to fit your backyard. The selection of attractive and durable gas logs crafted to look like wood such as oak, driftwood and aspen allow you to further customize your fire pit or fire bowl to suit your style.

Similarly, a propane fire pit can be made of concrete, brick, or stone in a wide range of shapes and sizes, too. They can connect to your household propane tank with a line much like a built-in grill. They can also use a refillable 20-pound cylinder, like you use with a several portable or conventional grills. Either way, you can enjoy a cheery, cozy fire under the stars with friends and family.

Are Fire Pits and Fire Bowls Easy to Use?

They are indeed! There’s no need for kindling or wood, or even matches in some cases. Most models come with an automatic ignition switch, and you can even control the size of the flame. And they’re as easy to turn off as to ignite, which means no cleanup, no ash, and no smoldering embers to worry about.

Like a gas log set, you have lots of options when it comes to what your fire bowl looks like including what they’re filled with. This can include everything from imitation logs, lava rocks that look like coal, and even glass “rocks” to curate a truly unique look to suit your outdoor entertaining areas.

Are They Safe?

As noted, there’s no smoldering ash or embers when you shut off the gas, but there are a few sensible safety precautions.

Always situate your fire pit away from buildings, combustible materials, and flammable surfaces. Don’t leave your fire pit unattended, especially if there are kids or animals around. Also, make sure the propane is fully and properly shut off when you’re done, and never use a propane fire bowl or fire pit in an enclosed space.
