Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. And though we’ve written about the best outdoor furniture, grills, and outdoor games before, here we’re going deep on the best firepits on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best firepit under $100

Landmann 26364 23-1/2-Inch Savannah Garden Light Fire Pit, Black

“This fireplace is an excellent addition to my backyard. It looks great and functions perfectly. I lined the bottom with 20 pounds of sand, which helps keep it clean and protects the bottom from falling out. You can load up logs and enjoy the crackle of the fire. You can easily sit about six to eight people around the fire comfortably. Add some conversation pieces to your next party, everyone loves sitting by a fire or getting one going!”

Best firepit under $200

Landmann USA 28340 Big Sky Fire Pit Wildlife

“We love our firepit! It was very easy to put together and looks beautiful, with or without a fire! Just be sure to read the directions carefully and put the sand in the base to protect it. I highly recommend getting the matching cover to keep it clean and dry, we’re glad we did! The size it perfect for four to eight people to sit around on a chilly night; it holds lots of wood to keep everyone warm.”

Best bonfire firepit

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit

“This is the best Solo Stove hands down!!! Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? HECK YEAH!!! When I first got it, I was shocked at how big it was. This is NOT a backpacking stove by any means. Besides using it to keep warm on the patio, or the backyard at night, you could also us it to clean up the yard from any branches that have fallen. When it gets up to operating temperature, there is no smoke. If you have a yard, and wood to burn, BUY THIS NOW!!!!!!!”

Best firepit table

Outland Living Series 401 Brown 44-Inch Outdoor Propane Gas Fire Pit Table

“I love this fire table! It wasn’t hard to put together and we purchased the wind shield and cover. It puts off such a beautiful flame and the rocks look like ice cubes, but they never melt! It does put off some heat, but since the table sits up a bit higher, you only feel the heat if you are standing over the fire table.I bought this mostly for ambience and it fits the bill perfectly!”

Best portable firepit

Outland Firebowl 893 Deluxe Outdoor Portable Propane Gas Fire Pit With Cover & Carry Kit

“I had a different propane firepit before that cost double what this one costs, but within a year the burner started leaking propane, until eventually it ignited in a big fireball. This fire sits lower to the ground, so the heat has a chance to radiate out before it rises, resulting in a much warmer fire. Once you get this fire hot, the heat from the rocks radiates out and you can turn the propane down and still have a warm fire. The included cover is nice, but you also want the bag so that the dust from the rocks doesn’t get your car or RV dirty.”

Best folding firepit

Sorbus Fire Pit 22”, Portable Outdoor Fireplace

“This little fireplace is just excellent. I had the instructions for setup in hand, bur really didn’t need them; the setup is just easy and intuitive. I set it on some gravel and away from anything flammable. I use it to burn excess catalogues, as in most of them. I also burn wood and roast hot dogs and other things I can impale on a long fork. In the evening, my wife and I enjoy just sitting around and chatting while watching the fire. For safety, we keep a charged hose near at hand, but have not had to use it. Great product.”

Best copper firepit

CobraCo SH101 Hand Hammered 100% Copper Fire Pit With Screen and Cover

“I love it. It’s so beautiful. I get a lot of compliments. I have enjoyed the color change and it’s easy to move. The cover fits well, too, and covers the whole thing.”

Best large firepit with legs

Sunnydaze 42 Inch Large Fire Pit With Spark Screen

“Absolutely love it!!!! Excellent size. This is the deepest metal firepit available and can easily burn unsplit tree trunks. This is our fourth purchase of a similar product. We live in Houston where rain and humidity rust out metal pits in about two to three years. We do have a cover, and that helps make it last longer.”
