Although the round shape is pleasing to the eye, it lacks the class and style artisans look for.

CONS: If you’re thinking that you won’t have trouble putting together a big ball with three stands, think again. Users have specifically complained about its complexity; assembly can take you 30 minutes to an hour. Landmann also has the habit of not placing the complete sets of the bolts and nuts in the package, which will result to the need of taking a quick trip to the hardware store.

What are the important aspects of the Landmann Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace?

Portability – When it comes to this department, this fireplace fails a little bit because it is quite heavy and difficult to move due to its round shape. It also doesn’t have built-in wheels for moving. The Landmann Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace is especially designed to sit in one place while being used.

If other fireplaces can be moved while in use, this one can’t, and is quite impossible to do without risking burns. At 47 pounds, it is also quite heavy. Finalize the area where you will leave your fireplace so you won’t have to worry about moving it in the future.

You have to take good care of this fireplace, as it is not guaranteed if the mesh can withstand prolonged exposure from the changing weathers and moisture. Over time, the materials will rust and deteriorate.

Once the protective enamel is chipped off, the next thing you’ll see is rust eating away at your fireplace. To avoid this, store your fireplace somewhere dry when not in use and house it in a waterproof cover. Also don’t forget to take the ashes out after every use.

The only complaint this fireplace gets is the lack of responsive customer assistance. You really need to extend your patience, as you won’t be getting an answer to your query right away.

Review of UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl

Having an outdoor fire pit not only warms you up during cold weathers, but you are extending living space outdoors, providing you with more spots to relax with family and friends while keeping warm. Outdoor fire pits also provide a nice centerpiece in your patio or backyard, giving your home a nice vibe.

The UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl, is the perfect accessory to your home because of its stylish design and ability to keep your favorite area warm.

PROS: The faux stone hearth that comes with it is truly mesmerizing that it can not only light and warm an area; it also acts as a great centerpiece. Family members and guests alike would love to gather around this fireplace because of its nice sleek look and feel that resembles a built-in fireplace. The bottom part of the stacked stone base conceals a propane tank for easier access.

CONS: This fire pit created by Blue Rhino is utterly expensive. You can get a fire pit that looks good and functions the same thing for $200 below. If you are looking for a fire pit that warms and not necessarily looks like the fire pit of the queen, there are ones that go as low as below $100. For the price of this outdoor fire bowl, you can have your own fire pit constructed with the freedom to design it however you want.

 

What are the important aspects of the UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl?

Fuel – This fire pit runs using propane gas tanks, which can be a little bit costly especially if you use it quite a lot. This is because every time your tanks runs out, you need to take it to your gas provider to have it refilled or you might need to purchase a new gas tank.

A natural gas will save you a lot more because it will be connected to your existing gas line. However, because it is propane-powered, you can light up your fire bowl almost instantly unlike burning firewood.

Size – The UniFlame LP Gas outdoor Fire Bowl is medium sized and be placed in gardens and patios. It can stand on its own because of its upright cabinet-style. It has measures 36″ x 24.5″ x 5″ and weighs a whopping 85.1 pounds. You’ll definitely need help in installation and movement because it is quite heavy.

Portability – As previously mentioned, this outdoor fire pit is heavy, weighing over 80 pounds. It also doesn’t come with built-in wheels for moving so it isn’t considered as portable. You’ll need help with moving this, as it needs to be lifted. It is also not recommended to be moved while operational because of burn and gas leakage risks. This fire pit needs to be handled with utmost care.

Material – A pro for having heavy materials, this fire bowl is very sturdy and won’t budge easily. The body is accented with a simulated stacked stone base cabinet that conceals a propane tank and control panel. The stacked stones would look good with a patio designed the same way and it could easily blend with your backyard inspired with stone accents.

It also has a top ledge that is wide enough to put your feet up for a more relaxing lounge. The gas burner is made of good quality stainless steel that won’t rust with proper care.

Safety – This fire pit is generally safe to use because it comes with a concealed control panel that is not accessible to youngsters. The space allowance on the table and the hearth is also substantial that people warming up close to it won’t easily get accidental touches to the fire.

Warranty – The UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl comes with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.

What other facts should you know about the UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl?

Assembly is quite complex but not very difficult. A single person can finish it in less than an hour. Others however, took a bit longer than that and said that they required at least two persons to complete. It comes in one piece and installation will be mainly for the propane gas, burner, and electric ignition.

Once installed, the fire pit is easy to light and comes with lava rocks that make the fire look more natural. Users recommend replacing the rocks with fire glass to match the body’s elegant appearance. The finish definitely looks luxurious when well placed in a stylish deck or patio. Some guests might even perceive the product to be made of real stone!

The downside, aside from it being very heavy and almost impossible to move unless you really have to, is the lack of cover for the burner or fire pit area in the event that you decided to use the entire space as a table. At the very least, this fire pit comes with a sturdy all-weather cover so you don’t have to purchase additional fire pit covers. This is perfect for when the fire pit is not in use to extend its life.

The UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl is capable of warming up on a 360-degree angle. However, the flame may not be as big or as high as desired. Once you have turned the knob into maximum, there’s no way to make the fire bigger to accommodate more people. This may be enough to keep about three to four people comfortably warm.

 

The Verdict

The UniFlame LP Gas Outdoor Fire Bowl is a good purchase if you’re looking for a no-fuss, easily assembled piece that not only warms but also doubles as an elegant centerpiece.

Although deemed expensive, it saves you the time and effort of constructing your own while buying lower-priced ones won’t look as classic as what UniFlame offers. The finish of the table doesn’t look like cheap knock-off stone and the burner is made from high quality stainless steel.

The package also comes with a durable fire pit cover to protect it from the changing weathers and moisture when not in use. Overall, this is a good purchase if you have the budget to spare. Otherwise, go for a cheaper kind especially if you’re only looking for something that provides warmth.

Review of Landmann USA Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace

Having a fire pit to warm you up during cold nights will make any outdoor party or gathering much better. It would be fun to stay close, huddled up together in front of the blazing warmth with your friends and loved ones while chatting and reminiscing. It also puts everybody in a great ambiance and mood, not to mention, it makes everyone feel comfortable.

Having all these is easily achievable through a fire pit that definitely improves the surroundings not only because of the warmth but also because of the glowing beauty it could create. For this do check out Landmann USA Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace.

PROS: The Landmann Ball of Fire is such a beauty when lighted up at night. As its name suggests, it really looks like a big ball of floating fire, which makes the ambiance much more fun and exciting to your guests. With this, cold nights are no longer a problem, and you’d wish time would slow down so you can have more time to take it all in. Because the entire ball is made of metal mesh, everyone around it can get his or her share of warmth.

CONS: This ball of steel requires high maintenance as most customers have put it because the metal isn’t stainless steel, meaning it will rust as soon as it can if you don’t take good proper care with it.

Although it is intended for outdoor use, don’t leave it there all day and night, all year round. The harsh weathers will suck the youth out of your fireplace, causing the metal to turn into brittle rust. Another con is the difficulty of putting this together. It is heavy and you need more hands to prop it.

 

What are the important aspects of the Landmann USA Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace?

Fuel: This fire pit is fueled by cheapest and most natural fuel there is – wood or charcoal. This is great because it can really fire up as big as you want to warm up more people if needed. Just add a few more blocks of wood into the fire and you’ll surely have a big one. Be careful not to overfeed the fire, you don’t want it to go beyond the round fire pit for safety reasons.

With the large round size of the Landmann Ball of Fire, you won’t have to worry if you’ll be able to produce sufficient fire and heat. It is recommended to place sand on the fire bowl provided at the bottom of this round fireplace to reduce the beating it takes from the fire.

Size: This fire pit is surprisingly big. Although it looks smaller in the pictures, it’s definitely chunkier in person. It can warm up a dozen of your guests without problem because of its 360-degree unobstructed view of the fire.

It has a large pivoting door with large handle for easy refueling. It is recommended to set up the logs in teepee style with a bit of gap between the logs to let the coal feel the oxygen so that the logs light up faster. Be careful in refueling, even if it features a large handle, it can easily heat up.

Portability: This product is quite large so portability is a concern especially if it’s lighted. Unlike other fire pits that can be moved from one place to another without risks of getting burns, this one should not be moved when the fire’s going. This is because there’s no provision for handles on the side for lifting it up safely. The metal is made of mesh so the heat radiates quite freely.

If you wish to move it, you’ll need the help of another person. Although you can bear-hug the round fire pit, it’s difficult. Unless you have Hulk Hogan’s body screaming of muscles, don’t try.

Material: This fire bowl has sturdy mesh steel construction measured at 30-inch-diameter. It’s an all-metal construction and has sturdy and thick metal feet. As previously mentioned, this isn’t made of stainless still; instead it is of coated black metal that is prone to get rusty if left exposed to the changing weathers outdoors.

To protect it, you can store it indoors when not in use or cover it with a weatherproof fire pit cover. The pan located inside the bowl used to place the firewood is also made of metal so make sure to clean it after every use to prolong its life.

What other things should you know about the Landmann USA Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace?

Despite all the nice things about this fireplace, some unlucky customers experienced a number of cons that doesn’t have anything to do with the fireplace’s performance. One major complaint is the poor quality control of the company.

Many customers received packages that lack important parts of the fireplace such as missing hex nuts and bolts, poker, and even the assembly instructions (it’s quite difficult to assemble so you would definitely need the manual).

Some also received broken packaging, damaged parts, and misaligned components. Customer service varies; some owners talked to helpful agents while some weren’t very helpful and are passive. Once you get all the parts and components complete, you need to find another person to help you with the assembly because the parts are heavy and big.

You also need to always clean it after every use. You may want to dump the ash with water first and then dry the pan before putting it back inside the fireplace.

 

The Verdict

This product is definitely a must-have if you live in a relatively cold area and want to have occasional evening parties/gatherings. With proper care and maintenance your Landmann USA Ball of Fire Outdoor Fireplace will last you years of good use.

Although some people complained about how the materials rusted so fast, you can avoid this by not neglecting your fire pit, leaving it outside under the changing weathers all the time.  Although intended for outdoors, you should consider storing it in your garage or at least covering it with a waterproof material. At the price you’ll have to shed for this, you’ll want it to last for as long as it takes.

Review of the Landmann Big Sky Stars and Moons Firepit

Outdoor fireplaces are an excellent way of improving home sociability with the added freshness of being outside of the stuffy cramped home.

It can even be used to cook food, so there will not be an empty stomach around the firepit when you’re all taking it easy and relaxing.

The Landmann Big Sky Stars and Moons Firepit, not only provides a well sized pit but also a little bit of personality with its fashionable design and also overall ease of use.

Despite the large size it also has a safety ring that make it relatively easy to transport and the pattern design around the outside give it an individual touch of flair.

CONS: Some reviews suggest that the legs of the firepit are hollow and sharp tipped at the bottom, making them a slight hazard if you intend to use the firepit on a deck or surface that is not appropriate to handle the pointing prongs. Others have also stated that the heat resistant paint has started to show signs of cracking and peeling after the first few months and that rust spots are beginning to show on the outer rim.

 

What are the important aspects of the Black Outdoor Fireplace?

Fuel – No fuel source is required for the Landmann Firepit aside from the obvious logs and kindling to get it started. You can however purchase special brands of lumber that will produce varying results depending on your choice.

One of the benefits of a lumber fire pit is that it can be customized according to the firewood, were you can get a nice smoky smell that can be used in the cooking process or ones that will keep the fire going for longer than usual. As always you can apply lighter fluid to prolong the fire if you wish to do so, as the Landmann firepit will not be negatively affected by it.

Size – 29.5″ x 29.5″ x 23″ H provides an excellent size for a fieplace, that is not too difficult to move about as a result of its dimensions or weight. The legs offer ample support and enough space to allow for bigger more vicious fires to take their place.

Portability –This fireplace is large and somewhat cumbersome and whilst most cases would see one of this size confined to a single location, there is still the availability of movement. The design of this fire pit offers a safety ring that allows for easy movement, letting you decide where you want to place it.

It is appropriate for any surface, so you can decide if you want it on decking, grass or concrete. It should be noted that when moving it, it’s not wise to drag so you will need to lift it up entirely.

Material – The steel construction of the overall firepit provides strength and durability as well as improvements on the actual fire itself. The high quality of the material ensures that it won’t lose its ability to retain heat over time, as well helping to contain the heat within and provide more cooking power.

The black finish is not just an aesthetic touch but also improves on retention of heat as well as eliminating signs of use, making the firepit look clean even after multiple times.

Safety – The material used in the fireplace acts as a container of the fire and works efficiently well, preventing excess fire from escaping and the heat lowering. On top of that, the offer of a spark grate will prevent sparks and embers from flying out and hitting people sitting around the fire, a definitive feature improving on overall safety.

Warranty – Disappointingly The Landmann Big Sky Stars and Moons Firepit does not offer any form of warranty nor does the company indicate any warranty available. You can however claim warranty through Amazon, if there are issues at all.

The Verdict 

Despite the somewhat superfluous design cut-outs in the firepit, there is still a lot of merit to the overall features and use of this firepit. It is entirely understandable to not choose it simply because of the design features, but on a “How it operates” scale it ticks all the boxes.
