Clay Gel Indoor/Outdoor Fire Pit

Clay Gel Indoor/Outdoor Fire Pit

Latitude Run®

What We Like: Attractive clay enclosure

What We Don’t Like: Cannot be placed on a wooden deck or table

Perfect For: People looking for an attractive indoor-outdoor fire pit

Not So Good For: People who have wooden tables or decks

This gel fire pit is an excellent choice for anyone who wants their fireplace to add an extra touch of class to their living space. You can use this gel fuel fireplace indoors or outdoors, as the rustic stone-like clay enclosure safely contains flames from the gel. Its relatively small size helps make the fire pit more flexible, allowing you to place it where you need it.

Since the clay enclosure of this outdoor gel fire pit transfers heat to the surface below, avoid placing it on a wooden deck or table. However, when placed on a metal, clay, or stone surface, the fire pit is perfect as a portable indoor/outdoor fireplace to provide visual elegance and warm, radiating heat for you and your guests.
