Ohio Flame Patriot Fire Pit Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

I have always loved the idea of sitting out my the fire. Every time I would see a campfire on TV or in a movie, I would just be entranced. I thought(and still think) it is something very special. A great way to bond with family and friends.

I would always see people telling stories and roasting marshmallows around the fire and wished I could have been a part of something like that. It seemed to represent family togetherness. Something I never had much of.

Once I reached my teen years, I finally had the opportunity to really have a great fire pit experience with some members of my youth group and an impromptu gathering. We sang sons while someone played the guitar. We drank hot coco and talked, and it was such a special night. I will never forget that as long as I live. It is one of my favorite memories.

Now as an adult, I have always wanted to have a fire pit of my own, but until recently we lived in apartments, so if was never possible. Now that we have our very own home, I am able to have the fire pit I have always wanted.

I have the pleasure of being able to review one for Ohio Flame.



The 24" Patriot Fire Pit is a masterpiece. In all my time dreaming of a fire pit, I was always focused more on the fire, than the pit, and had never given though to the different fire pits out there.

That is until I first went shopping around for one. Man oh man, some of them were atrocious. The construction was very poor and the material was flimsy. Most had to be assembles, and even the models in the store looked terrible.

They were super lightweight, ready to blow away at a moments notice, they were painted with cheap paint that would easily chip and peel off.

Simply put, the overall quality of each fire pit I looked at was sub par at best.

The 24" Patriot by Ohio Flame however is very impressive. This fire pit is 100% steel. 3/16" thick high carbon American steel sourced from local steel mills. Built to last. This fire pit will stand up to the elements year round maintenance free.

That is amazing. When I first saw how beautiful this was I thought it would be hard to care for, but I don't have to do anything but make fires in it.

Speaking of not having to do any work, this comes in once piece, fully assembled, so nothing to do much choose the perfect spot. I was super easy to move too. I thought the super solid construction and weight would make it hard to move, but it really is not.

It weighs about 40 pounds, so it is plenty heavy enough to hold it's ground and strong wind situations(which we get often in Florida), but the way the weight is distributed evenly, it does not feel too heavy.

As the name suggests, Ohio Flame is based right here in the USA in Columbiana Ohio. I love that Ohio Flame is making their quality products with American materials and American workers. There is nothing better than supporting our own economy and having pride in our country.

As if none of the other wonderful traits is enough, Ohio Flame offers a Lifetime Warranty on all Steel Fire Bowls. That is how well built these products are and how much confidence Ohio Flame has in their workmanship. You fire bowl will never rust through in your lifetime. Can any other company say that?


Not only did I fall in love with this pit and with being able to have my own fire, my family loves this pit as well. We roasted marshmallows over the fire the first time I tried it, and my son had so much fun.


I need a little work on my fire making skills to make the big fire that I want, but the bonding experience that I wanted was achieved perfectly. My son asks me every night for fire. Since he is autistic he will not say "can we have a fire and roast marshmallows", but he says it by repeating "fire" and/or "marshmallows" over and over again.

My daughter thought it was great too, although she is only one and cannot roast anything yet. I think my husband loved this the most of all. He is dying to get one of Ohio Flame's awesome cooking grates so we can cook up some awesome steaks and burgers. We already roasted hot dogs on sticks over this, and it was not only delicious, but fun.

And the neighbors love it too. I was the talk of the block the day I put this out. I had 5 people already ask me where I got this and comment on how gorgeous it is. Growing up I was pretty poor and always envious of what other people had. It is really nice to have something that other people want.

The Patriot Fire pit would be a phenomenal gift for anyone on your list. Something that will last forever so it keeps on giving year after year, creating memories that will be forever cherished.

  18. What aspect do you like most about Ohio Flame or the Patriot Fire Pit? It is safer to use then making a firepit on the ground surrounded by rocks.
