Human life has been dependent on fire for a long time. Fire kept people warm, protected the fields from wild animals and swarms of insects, it showed the way for ships and lost travellers, and even today food is cooked using fire. No home – neither caves, nor wigwams – could get by without fire, and even the castles of kings had to have a furnace or a fireplace. Nowadays, when spending time in your garden with friends the first thought is to light the fire pit directly on the ground – in the grass. For a casual gathering of friends this is not a bad solution but to organise a picnic by this kind of fire pit would be uncomfortable, and the lawn will be burnt. After spending time by the fire, the embers must be doused and then picked up as well.
Ready-made garden fire pits for cooking from cast iron, metal, ceramics or stone have been popular in western countries for many years. Garden fire pits for cooking have varied designs and different price levels, and they are easy to install.
The garden fire pits for cooking can be installed in many ways – with a lid and a grill for cooking various foods on the fire or with a tripod and a grill, thus creating a place not only for gathering around, but also for a picnic. Using a fire pit for cooking, the ashes and embers will be easy to clean.
