Best Propane Fire Bowl: PyroMania Fire Shangri-La Round Concrete Fire Pit

Best Propane Fire Bowl- PyroMania Shangri-La

What We Love About It:

The PyroMania Fire Shangri-La Fire Table is one of our all-time favorites for a number of reasons. Most propane fire bowls require the use of an external propane tank. But who wants to look at an ugly propane tank next to their brand new fire bowl? Well, that’s why we offer propane tank covers. These add-on accessories fit over a standard 20 lb propane tank so that you keep your backyard looking simple and clean. Most brands only offer one shape for their propane tank covers, but PyroMania allows you to choose from a rounded propane tank cover or a square one - we are all about options here! Customers also love its easy-to-operate design. All you need is a AA battery and a propane tank and you can get your Shangri-La fire bowl up and running in minutes.

Pros:

  • Homeowners can choose between light gray (slate finish) or dark gray (charcoal) finish
  • Protective accessories like glass windscreen and burner cover were designed for this model (sold separately)
  • Free canvas cover and lava rock included with your purchase

Cons:

  • We can’t find any!

At 65,000 BTUs you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space even as the temperatures drop.

Pros:

Making the list as our top pick for the best natural gas fire bowl is the Elementi Lunar Bowl Fire Pit. It's a stylish and affordable fire pit that will add a touch of elegance to any outdoor space. We love that it easily adapts to almost any home's existing gas line. This natural gas fire bowl was designed with a hollow base so the gas connection can occur underneath the fire pit. The benefit to this is a double whammy - you get a beautiful fire bowl without any unsightly hoses and remove a potential tripping hazard.  But our favorite part about the Elementi Fire Bowl is the high-end aesthetic! It resembles fire bowls from RH but at a quarter of the price. Who doesn’t love a good deal?!

Best Ethanol Fire Bowl - Ecosmart Pod 40 Fire Table

Best Ethanol Fire Bowl - Ecosmart Pod 40 Fire Table What We Love About It:
  • It’s a great alternative for homeowners or interior designers who don’t have the option to do natural gas and want to avoid the look of an external propane tank. With this ethanol fire pit, you fill the burner directly with the bioethanol fuel and light it - no need for external fuel sources outside the canister. 
  • The assembly manuals are detailed and easily to follow so you can start enjoying your fire pit sooner.

Ethanol fire bowls are ideal for homeowners who don’t want the hassle of a natural gas installation but want to maintain a chic design without the need for an external propane tank. The EcoSmart Pod 40 Fire Bowl is a one step process that uses eco-friendly bioethanol fuel to light your fire. No need for external sources or additional tools, just fill it up and enjoy! But wait, there’s more! Ethanol fire bowls have tons of benefits. They’re eco-friendly, easy to use, and can be placed indoors or outdoors.

Pros:

  • Free weatherproof cover and black charcoal glass
  • The clean modern finishes accent most backyards or patios

Its also very portable, bring it to your next beach bonfire or to your buddies place for some beers around the fire. For a classic campfire experience, you can’t beat the Ohio Flame Patriot. It’s no wonder why it made our choice for the best wood-burning fire bowl.

Best Price Fire Bowl - Modeno Roca Fire Table OFG107

 Modeno Roca Fire Table OFG107 What We Love About It:

Let’s face it, we all love a good deal. And the Modeno Roca Fire Bowl is no exception!

Best Rated Fire Bowls- Pottery Works 48" Round Concrete Fire Bowl

Pottery Works 48 Round Concrete Fire Bowl

What We Love About It:

If you love hosting backyard parties, then the Pottery Works 48” Fire Bowl is the one for you. With the ability to seat up to 8 standard-sized patio chairs around the fire, there’s enough room for your kids to invite their friends over for marshmallow roasting.  Moms rave to us about how the backyard has become a new space for connection and conversation. It’s no wonder why families love this fire bowl. Not to mention, finding a fire bowl of this size for less than $2,000 is rare, and with the price of everything going up, might as well take advantage while this deal lasts! With so much to love about this fire bowl, we had to make it our choice for the best-rated fire bowl. Create memories of a lifetime with the ones you love around the Pottery Works 48” Fire Bowl.

  • You can choose what type of fire media you’d like
Cons:
  • It does not come with an optional electronic ignition system; we recommend having a BBQ lighter handy when it comes time to fire up this fire bowl.

Best Fire Bowl For Heat - Slick Rock Concrete Oasis Series 34-Inch Round Fire Pit Bowl KOF34

Slick Rock Concrete Oasis Series 34-Inch Round Fire Pit Bowl KOF34 What We Love About It:

Slick Rock Concrete Oasis Series is our hottest fire pit (literally!) This fire bowl offers the highest BTU output on our website. But remember, just because the Slick Rock Concrete Oasis can go up to 250,000 BTUs doesn’t mean it should, so make sure to operate with caution. Besides its impressive heat output, this fire pit comes in an array of color options. We love Slick Rock because they offer colors you won’t find with any other brands like “Denim” or “Umber.” Adding a functional flair to your outdoor space has never been easier when you buy our pick for the best fire bowl for heat.

Pros:

  • Optional All Weather Ignition System will keep your flame ignited even in the harshest weather conditions. You haven’t seen real magic until you’ve seen a flame auto-reignite itself after a gust of wind. 
Cons:
  • It’s a bit on the pricier end
