Hi all!
Found these Snow Peak firepits on the Drifta site recently http://www.drifta.com.au/ and thought they looked pretty good. Stainless steel, fold flat and lightweight with stand and base available. Am looking for something to use just as a fireplace - not interested in cooking on it 'cos that's what a baby Q is for! Was wondering if anyone has one of these fire pits and can comment on its effectiveness as a fireplace.
Thanks and cheers

I was looking at the snow peak one, a bit exxy but nice design.

However this one is a better design, quicker to set up and less than half the price. It may have surface rust but it'll probably still outlive me. A chrome plate would also fix that for a few bucks.

Yes I have one including the cooking attachment and it works well, yes a bit expensive . . . . but make your own and it would only be made from mild steel and would be covered in rust after the first use. This is a quality product.

Thanks Doug. Price is a consideration but would rather buy quality that lasts and performs. What size have you got and what length log can you heave on please?

Hi TG,
Yep we have one. Love it, works really well. Went for the large size. We would rather spend a bit of extra money on something of quality that will last, and not be covered in rust next time we use it. It is easy to start a fire in, and you don't need a lot of wood to have a nice fire. It creates a great bed of coals that last quite some time. I wouldn't say it was a fire that will keep a crowd warm, but is great for 1-6 people. We use it out camping, and when we can't get away we have a fire in the backyard! Great for places where you cant have a fire on the ground, and much quicker than digging a fire pit when you can. Folds up to nothing, lightweight and well made. No cleaning required, shake the coals out, fold it up and away you go. We have the full setup but use just the fire pit more than anything. Quality product, would buy another one tomorrow. Hope this is of assistance.
Jenny & Wayne.
