Your fire bowl has been treated to produce a rust patina finish. This process will continue as your fire pit sits outdoors in the elements, and the finish will harden off after about a month. Until the finish is completed, you may prefer to protect the surface under your fire pit, as it may stain. If your deck or patio gets stained, CLR or a similar product should remove the stain.

We provide a link to Ohio fire regulations, but no other states at this time. However, we will be glad to post any others that are provided to us.

We do not recommend putting your wood burning fire pit on a wooden surface. It probably would not catch fire but may create marks on your deck. To be safe, if you choose to put it on a deck, is to put a heat shield such as decorative stones or pavers under your fire pit. Always check your local fire ordinances as to what is allowed in your area.

It is recommended to empty the ashes periodically because the ashes can be corrosive to the fire pit when wet. It will also help keep the drain hole open.

We recommend using a rounded scoop shovel to clean out the ash. Some people cut the handles shorter for ease of use.
