A fire pit is a backyard component that can be used to warm an outdoor area. It can be a place to socialise or cook food.

Fire pits come in different styles including basic metal fire bowls and multifunctional units. The multifunctional units serve as beverage coolers as well as fire pits.

Wood-burning fire pits are not suitable for covered porches, wooden decks are parts of a lawn that could easily catch fire. Fire pits should not be installed in windy locations.

There may be some restrictions or codes regarding the installation of a fire pit in certain areas that are governed by community bylaws.
