Fire Pits Made in America
There are many American companies selling fire pits that are not made in America. It is reasonable to assume that most are made in China. You will find these fire pits online or in big box retail stores such as Walmart or Home Depot or Lowes, some priced well under $100. Why choose a fire pit made in America over one made overseas? There are some very good reasons, the first, of course, is that it feels good to support American craftsmen. The other very good reason is that you will get a fire pit that will last for many years, if not the rest of your life. The imported fire pits may look very appealing with interesting designs and features, but they are typically made of thin steel and may be rusted through in a couple of years. The fire pits shown on this page will be made of very thick and heavy steel. On the other hand, there are also good reasons to buy an import. Two very good reasons for me would be: 1.) I am cheap and 2.) being old and feeble, I really can't lift or deal with a very heavy fire pit.
