The Benefits of a Copper Fire Pit
So, why should you look into purchasing a copper fire pit for your back patio, deck, or commercial space? There are plenty of great reasons to add this feature to your property, including those we have highlighted below.
A Stunning Look
There is something about copper that just grabs attention immediately. Where some of the other materials that you can choose for a fire pit will tend to blend in with the background – concrete fire pits are one example – copper is never going to have that problem. That’s particularly true when you shop with CopperSmith to get a high-quality piece that includes your chosen finish and several other custom elements.
Create a Welcoming Space
Gas fire pits are great at becoming the centerpiece for a comfortable, relaxing entertainment area. There is something about the flames of a fire that is mesmerizing, so you can expect to spend countless evenings sitting around that fire with family and friends, chatting about life and soaking up some well-deserved relaxation. In addition to the social benefits that a fire pit can deliver, you might also find that this becomes one of your favorite places to spend some solo time, perhaps sipping on a drink or reading a book.
Introduce a New Material
If you are hoping to add a fire pit to your deck, you probably have a lot of wood in the space already. The deck boards are likely wood or an artificial product designed to look like wood, and you may have some wood furniture pieces in place, as well. This is a great opportunity to use copper as a bold and interesting contrast to the rest of the space. Design is all about finding ways to play materials off of each other, and the use of copper in a setting that is dominated by wood is sure to be a winner.
Easy to Use
When you decide that you want to add fire to an outdoor living space, you have two basic options – a gas fire pit or a wood-burning pit. There is a certain romance that comes along with a natural fire, but don’t let that distract you from the hassle and difficulty that such an approach brings along with it. Managing a real fire is much more work, and you’ll have to stock up on wood regularly. Also, there is a significant amount of cleanup needed after burning wood, while there is very little to do with your gas fire pit other than turn it off. Keep life simple by using a gas copper fire pit as your source of comforting flames.
Many Shapes Available
Shopping with CopperSmith will make it possible to pick from many different shapes for your new copper fire pit. For example, you might decide to go with a round fire pit to make it easier for people to walk around the space, and more guests may be able to sit around the fire comfortably. On the other hand, an angular pit with clean lines and edges might look better in your setting, especially if you already have plenty of room for everyone to move around.
The CopperSmith Advantage
It’s not hard to find a copper fire pit, but it can be tricky to find one that will live up to your expectations in terms of beauty and durability.

You may have some questions about copper fire pits that you would like to have answered before placing an order. Review the questions and answers below to clear up any confusion.
Is copper better than steel for a fire pit?
Both copper and steel can work beautifully for a fire pit. When you think about it, the function that the pit needs to perform is pretty simple – it needs to safely contain the equipment and flames for your fire. Both copper and steel can get that job done, so one isn’t better than the other from a performance standpoint. With that in mind, you’ll want to think primarily about aesthetics when placing your order. If a copper fire pit matches the aesthetic you want to create in the space, simply pick your desired shape, size, and finish and you’ll be ready to go.
How do you clean a copper fire pit?
As the owner of a beautiful copper gas fire pit, it’s important to keep up with cleaning to make sure the pit looks great for many years ahead. Fortunately, this is an easy process. All you’ll need is some hot, soapy water and a soft cloth to do the job. Wash the exterior of the pit thoroughly and then dry it off when you are done. It’s important to pick a soft cloth so you don’t accidentally do damage to the finish of the pit with an abrasive cloth. As long as you carefully dry off the pit when you are done, you should be left with a great shine that brings the pit back to a nearly-new state.
How long do fire pits last?
There is no set expiration date on a quality copper fire pit from CopperSmith. With proper maintenance and routine cleaning, you can get many years of reliable service from this product. One of the best reasons to order from CopperSmith is the durability of our products and the level of quality we deliver to each and every customer. You’ll never be disappointed with something that you order from our site.
Is it okay to leave a fire pit burning overnight?
No – you never want to leave any kind of fire unattended. While the fire produced by a gas fire pit feels more contained and controlled than a natural fire where you are burning wood, it’s still not okay to leave the fire pit alone. Of course, with a gas fire pit, you can easily turn the fire on and off in just moments. So, if you need to leave the area for a while, just turn the fire off and restart it when you return. When you are done for the night, make sure the gas supply is turned off so there is no possibility of a gas leak in your absence.
Can you leave a fire pit out in the rain?
Yes – fire pits are meant for outdoor use and it’s okay to leave them in the rain. With that said, if you live in an area with a particularly wet rainy season, you might want to consider moving the pit to somewhere protected or adding a cover. If you aren’t going to be using the pit for a while anyway, protecting it from the elements could help to extend its lifespan in the long run.
Should I pour water on my fire pit?
Never pour water on a gas fire. If you need to put out the flames in your copper fire pit, simply turn off the gas supply and the flames will quickly subside. Adding water to this equation could create a dangerous situation, so avoid making that mistake. Before using your pit, make yourself familiar with how it works so you can always turn off the flames quickly if the need arises.
Can I use a fire pit on a covered patio?
The answer to this question comes down to the height of the ceiling over your head. Typically, the ceiling needs to be at least 80’’ tall to permit fire pit use in that space, but you’ll want to consult local regulations to determine the standards in your area. Also, make sure there is sufficient air movement in the covered area you plan to use the fire pit, just to be safe.
