- 2x Side Panels (Mild Steel)
Fire Pit Length: 595mm
Weight: 14 kg
The hot plate/grill on this fire pit is made from a special grade of stainless steel which is ideal for cooking on, as it distributes the heat more evenly throughout the plate, as opposed to standard grades of stainless such as 304 and 316. We use ferritic stainless steel (410 grade) which offers corrosion resistance, a non-porous cooking surface and good thermal conductivity. Putting it simply, this type of stainless steel is better for high temperatures so it will last you longer as it is less likely to distort or warp.
This type stainless steel will brown over time with use, and will become a darker golden colour than the silver stainless steel you might be used to. It is easy to clean and maintain.
Please Note: These are made from raw finish steel, so they will rust if left in a damp environment, or if water is not dried from the surface after cleaning. We recommend you coat these with cooking oil to keep them in the best condition.
Note: These will warp when in use, but usually return to their original state once cooled. If you are worried about long term warping we recommend choosing one of our 5mm pits. The sides can also be flipped over each time you use it, to help straighten out any bowing or warping.
We recommend only using the stainless steel grill once the fire has burnt down to coals, as direct heat from flames can damage the grill.
Please Note: These are processed through several machines so they may have some scratching/marks. The Bluescope sheets that we cut the fire pits from can have printing and markings on them from the manufacturing process. See the below for some examples.
