There are many great reasons to consider getting a gas fire pit versus the traditional wood burning fire pit, and you can check out the pros and cons of each here. If you have made the decision to invest in a gas burning fire pit, you have to decide what media you want inside the fire pit itself. Glass rocks are a great choice because they add a unique visual experience. Fire pit tables with glass also just look much more elegant than other options available. Here are five fire pits with glass rocks that you get on Amazon right now.
With a high heat rating of 46,000 BTU and also being the lowest priced fire pit on this list, this one could be a great option if you are getting your first fire pit. It has a storage compartment underneath for the 20 pound propane bottle that makes changing it out quick and easy. The solid construction and powder coat finish ensures that it will stand up to the elements. It includes clear glass rocks that give the fire a modern look, while the design of the outside of the fire pit gives it a rustic look.
I didn’t even know Ashley Furniture made fire pits. I guess you learn something new every day. They have really lived up to their name with this one. It’s contemporary design is the perfect height for bar stools, and it is made of high strength metal that won’t rust easily. When you are not actually using the fire, it makes for a great bar that you can hang out around and enjoy your favorite beverage. The only real con is that the BTU’s of it are only 30,000, making it not as effective in severe cold. You can store the propane bottle inside, or you can convert it to natural gas with a conversion kit and connect it to your home. A cover is also included, which aids in keeping it out of the elements.
This moderately priced fire pit is 50,000 BTU’s, meaning it will provide ample heat even in colder outdoor temperatures. At 57″ long, it provides plenty of space for all of your guests to enjoy it. It is made of durable extruded aluminum, and it comes with a weather resistant nylon cover and plate to cover the top to allow it to double as a table. The included glass beads give the fire an elegant look while maintaining its durability. The storage underneath allows for a 20 pound propane bottle to be stored.
This one is by far the most expensive on the list, but it is truly made to reflect the premium price. It is 42″ x 42″, and it comes with a glass wind guard to keep the flame lit even with a little breeze. It is designed for a 20-pound propane bottle, and it can even be converted to straight natural gas with a separately purchased conversion kit. The lightweight fiber concrete is designed to last, and a protective cover and burner lid are also included. It comes with a 40 pound bag of fire glass with multiple color options. The weight of it is the only downside, as it will take at least two people just to move it.
This fire pit table with glass rocks was an international design award winner in 2016, and considering that Outland Living is known for their excellent quality, this one did not disappoint. Safety wise, this table has the highest safety rated burner available, and the storage for the propane bottle underneath with the three foot propane hose gives less space for a possible leak to occur in the line. It is designed to last with the materials used in it’s construction, not unlike any of the other fire pit tables with glass mentioned before. The only downside with it is that the burner is only 35,000 BTU’s, which is on the low end for a fire pit of this craftsmanship.
Outland also has an accessory set pictured below that can be purchased separately for this particular fire pit, which includes the wind guard pictured above, a weather resistant cover, and a table top cover which effectively turns this fire pit into a dining table.
