What do you get in the box
The stone look on the sides of this fire pit is made from a Magnesium Oxide composite material that has a painted Multicolored surface. The stacked stone look of the sides goes great with the solid look of the one-piece top. The top uses the same material to look like a wooden table.
The fire pit top is 30 inches across and 24 inches tall. It will weigh over 90 pounds, the handle holes in the sides will help with movement when needed, make sure the burner is off and the tank is removed for easier moving. Controls are on one side, if you have kids this may not be the best location. For those who like to change the settings or like the ease of lighting this location is great.
The 20-pound propane tank (not included) will fit under the fire bowl. You can access the tank via the side door that can be lifted off. A handle hole will allow the door to be removed easily. Additional handle holes on each side will allow you and a friend to move this heavy fire pit to another location if needed.
40,000 BTU’s of heat will be produced by this fire pit on the high setting. With the medium or low setting, you can use the wood surround for a table for your drinks and snacks.

You can use this or any other gas fire pits on composite or wooden decks without and problems or extra materials.

Assembly, use, and care of your fire pit
Assembly of your fire pit should only take a few minutes, the hardest part is to pick up the packing materials when you have your fire pit unpacked. Carefully unpack your fire pit and add the lava rocks to the burn bowl, make sure that you leave the burner open to not block the fire. Add the battery to the igniter. Open the door and add your 20-pound propane tank (not included in purchase).
Lighting the burner will only take turning the knob to the highest setting and pushing the igniter button. After the burner is going you can adjust the flame level to the desired setting.
Taking care of your fire pit will only take a solution of mild soap and water. Do not use harsh chemicals as the finishes are just painted surfaces and will be damaged easily over time. Keep the burner and igniter area clean, it will be hard to light if dust from the lava rocks gets in the holes or on the igniter.

- Handles for moving when needed
- Outer surfaces are not rock
