13 Best Copper Fire Pit to Enjoy This Fall

With the start of September, we are now fully and officially into the fall season. Evenings are getting more pleasant. A bit of nip in the nights is foretelling what to expect in the upcoming winter. When it comes to enjoying home outdoors, the fall season doesn’t get the due it actually deserves.

For instance, the moderate temperatures of the season provide a great opportunity to have comfy bonfires in the backyard or the lawn without freezing yourself. A lit-up fire pit in the center of your outdoor space makes for a quality time during calming fall evenings and nights.

Copper fire pits are the best option for making any such arrangement. To begin with, their rustic reddish-brown finish is great for accenting your patio/deck/ backyard. On top of that, their portable nature allows you to use them at your convenience in different locations. Lastly, the durability of copper is ideal for withstanding the heat and rough weather conditions, thus extending the service life of a fire pit.

In short, a copper fire pit can be a valuable addition to your household this fall. In fact, it can even prove to be a great hot spot for the upcoming winter holidays as well. To make the selection process less of a hassle for you, we are going to review 13 of the best copper fire pits available in the market right now. This list will give you enough options to decide from.

Before we jump into the reviews, it is important to mention here that the fire pits are not listed down in any preferential order. The numbering sequence is maintained just for the convenience of the readers.

Best Copper Fire Pits

1. Titan 40″ Copper Fire Pit Bowl — Best Copper Fire Pit for Large Spaces  

  • 100% copper bowl
  • 40-inch wide and 8-inch deep pit
  • Comes with a money-back guarantee

Titan Great Outdoors is a reliable name for quality deck/patio accessories in the US market. Therefore, we are starting off our list with one of its copper bowl pits. It is a 100% copper pit with steel grates and iron base in a cauldron shape. The use of high-gauge pure copper makes this Titan product stand apart in many ways.

For instance, its reddish-brown finish is going to add a dash of elegance and class to your backyard/patio. Moreover, the use of pure metal ore ensures that the bowl doesn’t oxidize over the period of time. It is not going to discolor and corrode like cheap copper variants.

It is worth mentioning that Titan has made it a long-lasting outdoor accessory from all aspects. Its thick steel grates don’t corrode easily and can hold heavy logs of up to 2 feet. Then the grates are spaced as such that they offer perfect aeration to the burning logs to ensure a strong big flare.

The copper cauldron and steel grates are fixed on a thick iron base, which is then further reinforced by iron bands. In short, the pit is made of sturdy material from top to bottom. While offering great value for money, its large size might be a deterrent for some users.

Nonetheless, Titan 40” 100% Copper Fire Pit Bowl will be a great addition to any large lawn or deck—to complement the pleasantness of fall and contrast the coldness of winter.

Pros

  • Copper cauldron doesn’t oxidize
  • Well-thought-out steel grating

The manufacturer has designed this copper fire pit bowl in the most delicate manner. Its cauldron-shaped main copper frame has a shiny finish and stands on intricately designed twisted legs that were carved out of wrought iron. The legs are then powder finished so that they don’t corrode away under harsh outdoor weather.

We also like that Catalina provides all the related accessories along with the pit. You get sturdy grates, poker (to adjust logs), a spark screen (metal-weaved), and a storage cover as well. While a spark screen comes in really handy during windy evenings, the custom-fit cover let you store the pit in a better manner. It is important to mention here that all the intricate design details of AD112 have no bearing on its basic functionality. Its 30-inch pan and sturdy grates are perfectly designed to create a big bonfire.

While offering the durability and rustic finish of copper, Catalina has also made sure that its fire pit remains lightweight. AD112 just weighs 20 pounds and even a single person can move it around with ease.

Many people want to get copper or copper-finished home accessories for their rustic and classic appearance. They yearn for the inherent primitiveness and rawness that copper items demonstrate. CobraCo has designed its copper fire pit by keeping all those users in mind.

No products found.

 

To begin with, it is made of 100% and uncoated copper. Moreover, its hand-hammered finishing makes it look like an artifact conceived by ancient artisans. On top of that, its simple tub-like design and wrought iron stand add more authenticity to that rustic and olden finish.

While designing this fire pit like a true copperware, CobraCo has made sure that it doesn’t lag behind on the functionality front. For instance, the copper bowl is large enough to contain a considerable size of firewood, allowing you to blaze big fires for entire nights. Similarly, its compact design and moderate weight can easily be moved around by two people.

In order to give competition to similar copper pits available in the market, CobraCo also gives mesh screen and vinyl cover with this classic piece. Notwithstanding all these valuable features, some people might not like its non-grated construction.  But it is important to mention here that the manufacturer has deliberately made it without grates so that the copper can develop real patina finish over the course of use.

If your patio or backyard is already finished with some ancient and antique motifs, then SH101 will be a great addition to your outdoors.

This sturdy construction keeps it functional to prevent sparks from flying for the longest time. A vinyl protective cover also comes with the pit so you can easily keep it away from rain, water, and scorching sun.

While its finish is ideal to create rustic ambiance in the patio or backyard, the manufacturer has made it certain that you can use it in portable settings with utmost convenience.

What we like the most about this copper-finish fir pit is its one-piece construction. Here, the pit is not standing on a separate base or legged stand. The design of copper cauldron from the top continues and narrows down into a 20-inch solid base. This gives the pit better traction and grip on all sorts of surfaces. Steel grates are also part of the package so you can arrange the firewood in a better manner.

The base of the pit features two holes for drainage and ventilation. This feature of construction ensures that the ash is automatically disposed of as the logs burn. A fire poker and a spark screen are also part of the deal to give you a complete outdoor fireplace setup. We also like the handles of this copper-finish fire pit. They actually cut down the weight of the pit into half. These handles will prove to be a blessing if you bring the pit in your camping gear and need to move it around quite often.

Go for this Sunnydaze offering if you want a reliable and portable fire pit for your outdoor space as well as camper trips.

There is some sort of unsaid rule that fire pits only go with large patios, lawns, and backyards. You can use them while camping somewhere in the open and wild. You don’t need to conform to that bizarre presumption just because you don’t have enough outdoor space. Global Outdoors has designed a copper fire pit that can easily be set up in any medium-sized patio or backyard.

Sunjoy Squaw Valley is not a real copper fire pit. However, its features are so valuable and functional that it is even better than some of the pure-copper pits and that’s the reason why we have included it in our list.  To begin with, it is made of sturdy steel mold so you don’t need to worry that a non-copper base material has been used in the making of this fire pit.

Sunjoy L-FT629PST Squaw Valley Firepit, Cozy Warmth

Moreover, the steel frame of this 35-inch fire pit is well designed and its legs feature scuff protectors. This feature makes sure that your delicate patio flooring doesn’t bear the brunt of the heavy sturdy construction of a fire pit in the forms of chips and scratches. The scuff-protected feet along with an effective ember screen also make it an ideal portable fireplace for indoors.

However, the most winning feature of Sunjoy Squaw Valley Fire Pit is its exquisite faux copper finish. It is actually a textured finish featuring diamond patterns and fading that makes it a stunning piece for both outdoor and indoor accenting. In the reddish-orange hue of burning logs, the finishing looks majestic.

The use of steel instead of copper also keeps the weight of the pit low thus making it really convenient for you to move it between indoors and outdoors.

Pros

  • Design details makes it an ideal focal point for any outdoors

What we like most about this CobraCo is its sturdy canopy-style spark screen. A black protruding screen with black base sandwiches copper bowl in between. This color arrangement makes it a unique accenting piece for both indoors and outdoors. On the other hand, the 28-inch copper bowl is wide enough to start large fires for long bonfire sessions.

The pit features three holes that ensure that ash doesn’t accumulate in the base. If you are looking for a copper pit that doesn’t strain your budget and can easily gel in with your outdoor/indoor decoration, then there is no harm in considering a Mission fire pit.

Even if you are not using it for bonfires and fireside, it can still be served as a focal point to accent your outdoors.

 Factors to Consider While Buying a Fire Pit

Whether you are picking anything from the above-reviewed fire pits or going to shop anything outside of this list on any online or brick and mortar store, these are the three most essential features you should factor in before making the final call.

1. Bowl/Pan Size

Before anything else, assess the size of a fire fit in line with your specific needs. We are going to break down fire pits into three categories in terms of their sizes.

Large

A cauldron or pan with the diameter or length larger than 3 feet (36 inches) is considered a large fire pit. These pit sizes only look good in large lawns and gardens (above 200 sq-ft). Even large patios are not able to accommodate such large fire pits without looking congested.  

Apart from creating space issues, large fire pits are also not considered functional for households because they need a large amount of firewood to look alive. On the safety front too, large fire pits are not that good since their grand blaze is susceptible to get out of control.

In short, a large copper fire pit is only a good option when you want it for an extra-large space and also know how to fire and control a large pile of logs.

Medium

A bowl with the diameter in between 35-30 inches is considered a medium-sized fire pit. This is the ideal size in copper fire pits for all sorts of uses. Whether you want to use it in a patio/deck or lawn or planning to take it on an off-road trip, a medium-sized assembly will come in handier than a large unit.

Small

Copper fire pits with diameters less than 30 inches are considered small units. They are ideal for small patios and backyards. Moreover, small-size fire pits can also be easily used indoors given that they bear some nice and design-oriented finish.  Similarly, they prove to be a better option than medium-sized units when your vehicle doesn’t have a large luggage space.

2. Material

After settling on the perfect size as per your utility, move on to the type of material you want your fire pit in. You can find fire pits in different materials including stone, steel, copper and cast iron. We have only discussed copper and copper-finish fire pits here because it is the most suitable material choice in all aspects. It is affordable, durable and looks good.

Moreover, there is one unique characteristic of copper that gives it an edge over all the other materials used in the construction of fire pits i.e. it improves with the exposure of heat. While other materials corrode, erode, discolor and warp under heat, copper becomes stronger and also improves its finish by developing patina under high temperatures.

3. Cost

The cost of any fire pit will depend on its size, accessories and the goodwill of its manufacturer. For instance, a pure copper fire pit of a large diameter from a reputable manufacturer will be expensive than the similar model with copper finishing only.

We would suggest that don’t compromise on the quality to save a few bucks. A top-quality copper fire pit is a lifetime investment. So, even if you have to spend an extra amount on its upfront cost, go for it because its extended service life will make up for it.

Different Uses of a Copper Fire Pit

Apart from the obvious use of creating a cozy and warm spot in your outdoors during fall and winter, a copper fire pit can be used in many capacities.

For Cooking. As you have noticed, many fire pits come with grates. Some of these grates are constructed to extend the functionality of a fire pit as an outdoor cooking/grilling spot. From grilling hot dogs and steaks to roasting marshmallows, you can use a copper fire pit in this capacity all year round.

As An Accenting Item. You are not bound to use a fire pit for its literal function. A uniquely designed fire pit particularly the copper ones with antique finishes make a great focal point and accent pieces for both indoors and outdoors. With a bit of customization, you can also transform a pit in a fire table, which is in vogue these days.

For Camping.  A copper fire pit can serve as a great portable fireplace for camping and RV trips. In comparison to stone pits, they are lightweight and their detachable stands make it easy to transport them in light vehicles.  

In short, by buying a copper fire pit for your abode, you can stretch its functionality to a range of different applications. We hope that this comprehensive list of 13 copper fire pits will provide you enough options to choose from for creating a perfect fireside and hot spot in your outdoors.
