I bought this for my father-in-law for father's day. It looks so good, better than the firebowls. He was sad to see that the finish burned off after only a couple uses. The grate under the fire got really bad quickly, so we made a new one. He was using a BBQ cover, but moisture got at it and it rusted. He used a BBQ paint on it. He still uses it, but we have had to put a lot of work into it to keep it looking ok.
