Orbus Cast Iron Fire Pit
The Orbus Cast Iron Fire Pit is a marriage between traditional production techniques and contemporary design. The Orbus has a solid cast iron fire bowl which possesses the typical grained patina expected from genuine cast iron. Surrounding the central fire bowl, the Orbus has a steel peripheral structure consisting of its legs and attractive guard bar, which completes the modern appearance to a fire pit with a traditional heart
CAST IRON FIRE BOWL genuine cast iron fire bowl for greater long term durability and a traditional aesthetic. Please note that the bowl has the "graining" and surface unevenness that can be expected from cast iron, and the appearance is quite different from mainstream fire bowls made from pressed steel
COOKING GRILL a cooking grill is included to allow you and your guests to enjoy a barbecue when required
SPARK GUARD to protect you and the surrounding area from fire spits
FINISHED IN THERMAL PAINT to prevent the immediate onset of oxidation and corrosion. The manufacturer recommends a periodic application of stove paint to keep the fire pit looking its best
DIMENSIONS width (including guard rail) = 64cm, weight = 9.5kg
USE AND MAINTENANCE NOTES the manufacturer advises keeping the fire pit under cover between uses, and recommends a periodic application of stove paint to keep it looking its best. Please consider the position of your fire pit and note that surfaces vulnerable to heat exposure may require it to sit on a protective barrier, such as slate tiles/paving slabs

This is a very good fire pit for the money, and has a good weight about it. The handles on the barbecue grill allow it to be used as a platter. You can prepare the meat in the kitchen then carry it out to the fire pit for cooking. You can then lift the meat off the heat if required (using oven gloves obviously) to avoid a flare up or to serve the meat to the plates of hungry family members. Make sure you buy a cover for it because cast iron rusts if you don't take care of it. Also, get someone to hold the bowl up while you assemble the legs or you'll go insane trying to get them on.

All the family came round at the weekend and we used our Orbus Fire Pit for the first time. Went together well and made a tight, solid structure when assembled. Has a bit of style about it which everyone remarked on, so 10/10 for appearances. I have an excellent picture of a rocket blasting off right next to it, so I'll send you it to use on your web page advert!!! All The Best. Helen.

Bought this one because I wanted cast iron, and you don't get many fire pits made from cast. The assembly principle is very simple with the nuts an bolts all being the same size. I did, however, have to give sections of the guard rail some pressure to get them to align with their mounting holes, so be prepared to persevere with this part of the construction. As I was assembling it a noticed that the cast iron bowl was of respectable thickness, as are the sections of guard rail. The legs are actually standard gauge pressed steel (0.6mm), but gain reasonable strength from angulation. Once assembled the product is sturdy, but it definitely has the look of being made in a traditional forge. This is definitely not for you if you want a polished product made from laser assisted welds etc, but if you are after something that looks good and has some robust ruggedness about it, then this could be your one. 5 stars because I caught it on a sale and paid the right price. At full price it would be 4 stars.

Goes together well and benefits from the cast iron fire bowl in terms of appearance and weightiness of construction. The BBQ grill has 2 upright handles which is small thing, but actually very useful for bringing food to and from the fire. The appearance on the whole is good, although the spark guard was easily misshapen by a moment of carelessness on the part of my son. A good all-rounder for the amount spent.
