Say goodbye to ash, expensive firewood and bothersome smoke with this travel-friendly fire pit.

Lightweight and portable, the propane fire bowl measures 21 inches by 9.5 inches and has a total output of 58,000 BTU/HR. It's CSA-approved and safe to use during most campfire bans, as it emits a spark-free flame.

The set has everything you need to get going, including a cover, carry kit, a pre-attached 10-foot hose, and a 4.4-pound natural lava rock set designed to enhance its flickering effect.

A trusted pick among Amazon shoppers, the Outland Living fire bowl is made from high-quality, durable steel with protective enamel. It is the perfect outdoor centrepiece for camping trips, beach parties, and backyard get-togethers.

What shoppers are saying

This no.1 best-selling fire pit has earned a whopping 27,000 reviews from Amazon shoppers and an average rating of 4.7 stars.

According to one reviewer, the portable fire bowl is "absolutely perfect."

It's "not smoky" and roasts hot dogs and marshmallows "just fine," they write, adding, it's a "wonderful fire pit!"

It was "better than my expectations," says another reviewer. It "gives off a lot of heat and light" even on the lowest setting.

A third shopper says the unit was "easy to put together" and emits a "good amount of heat." It's "great for camping," they write. "Beats paying for bags of wood."

Despite top marks for sturdiness, maneuverability, and value, some reviewers note the fire bowl goes through propane quickly and say you can expect 3-4 uses before you empty a 20-pound propane tank.

The verdict

If you’re looking for a convenient, portable and easy-to-assemble fire pit, it doesn’t get much better than the Outland Living Fire Bowl. At 21-inches across, it makes for a great addition to any backyard or campground setup, and can easily be packed away when not in use. Just make sure to check local bylaws before investing. One thing to note before purchasing: some shoppers say it goes through propane quickly, so make sure to stock up before heading out for the weekend.
