Met all expectations. Beautiful, functional and easy to assemble.
This is a very nice looking fire pit. And, once it is put together, it works great. Getting it put together, however, is not so easy. The instructions are not very good. We were missing one bolt. And, to make matters worse, the receiver for one bolt is damaged inside and the bolt won't screw in. We made it work with some improvisation. Finally, it took two pretty big guys exerting a lot of pressure to make some of the parts fit. Once together though, it looks great. We love it. But we wish the assembly process would have been smoother. And the missing and damaged parts make me wonder about the QC.
The fire pit itself looks great, but the package arrived badly damaged. The support bar of one of the side panels (D) was bent out of shape, and had to be unbent by hand to make assembly possible. I would have thought the packaging design would be better for such an expensive fire pit.
