The VOUNOT Fire Pit Table is ideal for socialising on summer nights. It’s a little larger, with dimensions of 81cm x 81cm x 36cm (LxWxH), making it perfect for group gatherings and family barbecues. The wide, flat sides are convenient for placing a cold drink while the sausages are sizzling, but you can also use the product solely as a fire pit or even an ice bucket on warmer days. When using as a grill or fire pit, it’s worth keeping in mind where you place the product to prevent damage to the surface underneath.
In terms of durability, with this product it’s all in the details. The tabletop has an anti-scalding coating, whilst the metal material is resistant to high temperatures and rust, meaning that you can use the product as often as you like without fear of wear and tear. Some customers found it difficult to assemble the product, but VOUNOT recommend that you only tighten the screws after the assembly is completed rather than as you build, which should prevent any issues.
Both coal and firewood can be used as fuel for this fire pit, and you’ll get a bunch of handy accessories included, such as a barbecue grill, a poker, a mesh lid and a protective cover, which we think makes the price more than worth it.
