Does The Landmann Garden Lights Savannah Fire Pit Have More To Offer Than A Pretty Display?
The Landmann Garden Lights Savannah Fire Pit (see price) is clearly meant to look good as possible while offering a great fire, as is seen in the fact that everything from the ring handles and spark screen to the legs is described by the manufacturers as “decorative”.
This 23.5 Inch diameter Fire Bowl fire pit runs with this Landmann range’s theme of decorative shapes – this time a simple weave effect – and offers 360 degree viewing of the fire but is it practical as well as pretty?
What benefits has this Landmann Garden Lights Savannah 23.5 inch round Fire Pit brought to buyers’ gardens?
The product description talks about a “sturdy steel construction designed for easy assembly” and users clearly agree, showing their appreciation for the 22 pound weight and their confidence in the product. Additionally, the depth of the fire bowl means plenty of space for wood and a long life for the fire, with reports of it lasting for hours.
While the construction and dimensions of this pit are greatly beneficial, it is the way that the finished product looks that has led to the most positive comments. The weave effect lets the light of the fire shine through in a pleasing pattern, while also having the practical element of giving the flames enough oxygen, yet it also manages to keep the embers together nicely, which eliminates mess, and it does not seem prone to rust or weather damage.
Some buyers would say that it offers greater ambience than heat, again adding to this idea that the social and aesthetic appeal of this fire pit is one of the main benefits, but this potential lack of heat also suggests that the product may have its limitations.
Are there limitations to the capabilities of this Landmann Garden Lights Savannah Pit or any design flaws?
Interestingly, the problem that has been mentioned in user reviews most often is that there is poor drainage in the bowl and it therefore fills up with water too easily. This may be the most common complaint but it is one that is easily rectified with a cover or – as some buyers have suggested – a drill.
A lot of the negative comments seem to regard suggestions and warnings rather than criticisms. For example, there is the suggestion to put some sand on the bottom of the bowl, the warning that it may a little small for some tastes and the comment about whether or not you should use it on a wooden deck or not – the makers say not to but some rebellious users that have tried it have seen no visible damage to the deck.
Summary: do these minor issues still mean a full recommendation for this Landmann Savannah Fire Pit?
The compact size mentioned in the negative reviews isn’t for everyone but the designers have not compromised on the pit’s capability to produce a long, satisfying fire by making it compact because of the clever design of the weave and the depth of the bowl.
With only one real downside to consider – one that is easily fixed with one of two simple user suggestions – it is hard not to recommended this Landmann fire pit for its ability to provide an attractive, practical heat and light source for family gatherings on cool evenings.
