We’re nearing the end of summer and before you know it the kids will be back in school, the August heat will disappear and comfortable fall weather will take its place. Extend your time enjoying the outdoors with an outdoor fire pit. A night with the kids roasting marshmallows or relax and take in the cool night air accompanied by a favorite warm drink and a loved one. Available in all shapes and sizes, you’re sure to find one that fits your space, style and budget. Let’s take a look at five must-have fire pits to extend your time enjoying Minnesota’s great outdoors.


1.  Round Santorini Gas Burning Fire Pit

It comes with a stainless steel burner with an easily adjustable flame.  The hearth is designed to sit inside a captured rim so it can be transported around the backyard as one unit.

2.   Rectangular & Square Santorini Gas Burning Fire Pits

The rectangular Santorini Fire Pits is such a popular shape I had to give it its own category. A brother to the round Santorini, this rectangular and square versions have all of the same options to customize color and top designs, but offers a linear shape ideal for sofa and sectional layouts. Operating on propance or natural gas with up to 60,000 BTUs of heat this fire pit will sure warm you up on those cool evenings.

3.  Banchetto Chat Height Gas Burning Fire Pit

Tropitone fire pits are durable, functional, and beautiful. Constructed for commercial grade, they’re built to withstand abuse from the weather (and the kids). The popular Banchetto slatted top design is made of reinforced extruded aluminum for the ultimate durability and is versatile enough to blend into a variety of furniture and décor styles.  

  • The propane or natural gas burner boasts a 90,000 BTUs to compete with commercial fire pits on the market today

4.   Copperstone Wood Burning Fire Pit

Enjoy the smell of a real wood burning fire in the Copperstone fire pit. Available both round and oval sizes of: 32” and 42” diameters. No copper platting here! Constructed of 100% copper the frame fire pit is built to withstand the extreme heat of the ultimate fire.  The aged and rustic design is intentional and the copper will patina to a dark grey from the heat over time. Easily roast marshmallows or hotdogs with no mess to clean up. Add an all-weather protective cover to keep this fire pit looking its best for many years to come.


5.   Blackstone Wood Burning Fire Pit
A hefty size, the Blackstone fire pit is a beauty. Available in 36” and 54” round, as well as 52” oval, you can have some pretty massive backyard fires. A muscular, rugged base and 100% copper bowl will radiate intense heat to keep your family warm on even the coolest of nights.  Just like the Copperstone fire pit, any 100% copper frame fire pit will patina to a dark grey from the heat over time. Copper is extremely durable and long lasting so this rustic fire pit will keep your family and friends toasty for years of bonfires to come.
