Choosing the Right Fire Pit

Practical, versatile and oh-so-charming, there’s nothing not to love about our fire pits. However, choosing the right one for your space takes a little bit of knowledge. Fire or ethanol pits? Cast iron or steel? Answering these questions can help you make an informed choice to ensure you’re satisfied with your purchase for years down the line.

Fire vs Ethanol Pits

The main difference between traditional fire and ethanol pits is that the former is designed to burn timber while the latter is powered by eco-friendly bioethanol. At Milkcan, you’ll find both options available in a variety of sizes and finishes.

Ethanol is a fantastic option if you’re after the versatility of both indoor and outdoor use, with a smokeless entertaining solution. The ethanol fire bowls are also a great solution if you’re looking to add a fire bowl to a balcony or courtyard. The larger tables work well for larger entertaining spaces, with built in tables simply add a cheese board ready to entertain.

The steel and cast iron range of log fire pits are perfect for camping or for backyards of all sizes. Designed with durability in mind, they’re a great addition to bring any backyard to life.

Cast Iron vs Steel Pits

Both cast iron and steel fire pits are a great option to choose from! All our Milkcan fire pits are designed with longevity in mind, which is why we design our fire pits with 3-4mm thickness. You may notice the thickness on some of our cast iron fire pits to be a little thinner on the rim, however we ensure the thickness is where it matters in the base that holds the fire – with thickness up to 10mm.

We’ve incorporated both cast iron and steel fire pits into our range, to allow for all different styles of designs. The process of manufacturing cast iron allows us to make specific designs that aren’t available using steel. Cast iron is a naturally heavier material, but no more stronger or durable than our steel fire pits. Steel also allows for a smoother finish than it’s cast iron counterpart.

How to light a fire pit?

There are several ways in which you can light a fire pit. The technique will vary depending on your chosen model. We recommend using aged and dried wood which will result in less smoke, and therefore less irritation, and once the fire is lit, add more wood gradually as needed. You will also want to make sure the firepit is well ventilated for good airflow.   Please read assembly and safe use instructions before using your fire pit to avoid fire hazards.

Ethanol fire pits are supplied with everything you’ll need to light your fire, with safety instructions. Simply purchase the ethanol fuel – sold separately online – and you’ll be ready to enjoy.

Yes, you can place your fire pit on grass, we do recommend laying a few pavers or pebbles around the fire pit if you’re using it on grass, to prevent any embers impacting your grassed area.

Do cast iron fire pits rust?

Cast iron is prone to rust—it’s a completely normal and natural process. However, the rate of rusting will greatly depend on the exposure to the elements of nature. To keep your cast iron pit in good condition, proper care is required. It is important to store the fire pit in a dry and covered location when not in use, as rain can accelerate the rusting process. You can also purchase an oil based sealant from your local hardware to slow down the rust process. However, we also think the rusting process can add character and create a fantastic looking feature in your backyard – the choice is up to you!

Will my rust fire pit continue to rust?

Your rust fire pit will continue to naturally weather into its durable rustic finish. We do recommend keeping your rust fire pit away from surfaces that may be affected by rust staining.

For longevity, we recommend to store your fire pit under cover or out of the elements when you’re not using it. This will increase the lifespan of your fire pit.

Will my black fire pit rust?

Your black fire pit is finished with a high temperature black painted surface that is resistant to heat but not water. If left uncovered in the elements, it will age to a natural rust finish over time and stabilise, requiring no further maintenance. Some people love the fact that their black fire pit will go through a gradual phase of rusting, this can make a great looking addition to your space. If you would prefer that your fire pit stays its beautiful sleek black, you can use rub back the surface and apply a coat of heat resistant potbelly black paint each season to keep it looking its best!

We do not recommend placing your fire pit directly on wood or composite decking as this can affect the condition of the surface beneath and be a fire hazard. You can, however, consider using a specially designed fire pit mat made from fire-resistant insulating material to protect against heat transfer and ash and coals falling out.

Can you have a fire pit in an apartment/balcony?
