Anyone have one? I’m wondering how it compares to the Costco one Outland 21” for $129.99. The biggest thing would be the Costco warranty. The Outland also seems to have a nice carry strap.

Trying to understand what this is for.
It looks like something you would bring camping but who camps with a gas firepit?

We have a propane fire pit and a portable wood fire pit at home. We prefer to use the propane fire pit as we can have it up on the deck, as well as you don't end up smelling like smoke at the end of the night

What material is your deck? The bottom of the fire pit does not get too hot?

Non-gas/liquid stoves are not permitted during a fire ban in certain area. My friend went camping the other day, brought his portable grill, charcoals, his food, etc. When he got there there was a fire ban and he couldnt use his grill, nor make a fire.

Besides the city it seems like the real advantage of some of these is that you can use them while they have bans of real fires in parks etc... I don’t think they get too hot on the bottom as most are raised enough to dissipate the rising heat, but you probably wouldn’t want to run it too long on a deck. Convenient to roast a dog or some marshmallows and then turn it off without the fuss of starting a fire. If you’re looking for something to sit around for 4 hours, these go through a fair bit of propane...

Costco Outland is 109.99 right now in Ontario. It's 21" and 58k BTU for comparison. From what I've heard, it's more than sufficient as a heat source

hmmm, usually there is an exception for cooking food, especially covered flame - what are you gonna do, go home to eat and come back?

There were no exceptions when he went(again, I guess it depends on were you go). He was told he could go in the city nearby to buy something else, but before loosing his cool and GTFO of there with his wife and kids a friend of his told him they'd share his propane bbq...

When its too dry there is a ban of open burning. This is due to the danger of forest fires.
Also some people want a fire for ambiance and don't want to mess with wood and smoke.

I bought the Costco Outland one a month ago and I couldn't be happier.

The convenience factor alone makes it very worthwhile. Turn a button and you have instant heat. It is fully adjustable and you can't use it on full setting if you're sitting within a couple of feet as it gets very hot.

I have used it on my porch which is covered and it's fine. You need about 7ft or 8ft of height. Also, it doesn't transmit too much heat downwards so is fine to use on the deck.

I have used for many hours and it doesn't use that much propane.

Costco/HD Outland May dip at $110-80 which I think may be a better value, especially with their return policy, in case of anything

Never heard of craftsman’s firepit
1. Buy cheap, buy twice
2. Don’t buy because it’s cheap. Buy it when needed or it brings convenience/happiness/better quality in life
3. Buy now think (regret/return) later
4. If the gut says don’t tell your lady, don’t!

Still...

Smell smokey is part of camping.

This product is more as you said....for home use.

We’ve got the larger Outland bowl from Costco and love it.

We use it both in the backyard and for camping when firebans won’t allow fires, but will allow contained propane cooking and fire bowls.

Love the larger size fire-bowl, and compared to this Craftsman, the Outland’s sure are purdy!

There is going to be a fire ban most likely in all of western canada for the rest of the year.

Propane fires are still allowed though.
