I love sitting outside by the fire and the Flame makes that quick and easy. I've done the fire pit thing, only to be exhausted by the time a fire was actually burning. The Flame is just a click away from a beautiful fire. All required parts are included. The logs are fairly realistic looking and create a nice looking fire.

Two complaints - fairly major flaws. 1. The wheels are very small and I would not consider, on any level, this to be a portable product. Initially, I placed the Flame in our feild - the real bonfire feeling. But the wheels could not handled the uneven ground and moving it around was a backache - literally. Even on our deck it's a bit of a chagllenge to move.

2. It's LOUD. Sounds like a huge blow tourch. I have contacted Weber to see if there is any tweaking to reduce the flowing gas sound and there is not - though they did offer a free campfire CD - which was thoughtful, but does not solve the problem.

For almost $600, I would expect more from Weber. I love the concept. I still use it. But I wouldn't recomend the product to friends.

I was skeptical after reading some of the reviews of this and looking at the price. Once i got it and lit it, unbelievable. I have a tendency to read the reviews and pick up on others issues with products, so there is a little propane hissing, but the heat that it puts out is unbelievable. The flame levels were alot higher when you think about how much heat and flames your grill puts out. The handles/footrests are heavy duty and perfectly placed. Saying all that, i can see the only drawback is the amount of fuel you might go through. It says that it last 7 hrs, that might be a little generous. I got rave reviews when i started it up, and the next day when we had a real fire pit going, everyone appreciated that they didn't have to wash their clothes due to the smokey smell. That has to be the best part. Aagin, great product.

Also after reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about the noise issues mention.

I am VERY VERY happy with my unit. There is not really any 'noise' more than the flames and slight gas pressure sounds (and my hearing is sensitive). It is not at all an issue in my opinion. In fact, my fire pole (yes the Weber warms the front and the fire pole warms the back) is probably more noisy than the Weber.

It came fine UPS tho supposedly I had to sign for it. My UPS driver is great and even though I was not home, he put it in my garage (I may have a 'signed release' over the years but I think it is more my GREAT UPS driver).

I unpacked it and moved all the parts load by load to the deck alone. The large bottom is the heavy part and the wheels were a great option! I wheeled it across the gravel drive (not toooo easy but it worked) then on the grass (worked GREAT). Up the stairs and onto the deck was the only lifting I had to do. Granted I do not plan to move it now that it is put together and the LP tank is connected.

I was VERY PLEASED with the LP tank connection feature. The unit has a 'hanging bracket' on the back of the fire pit (behind the solid black screen on that side). You simply hang the LP tank and there is a gauge based on weight that tells you how much LP you have left! Pretty clever of Weber to incorporate two features into one.

The unit lights VERY VERY easily. The first time I used it the flames were 'so so' but the second time (extended use) it became PERFECT. I think a lot depends on how you put the lava rock down (single layer and not all right on top of the holes). It REALLLLY looked like a real fire the second time I used it with yellow flames going very high into the unit (not high enough to have to worry about it tho).

I am VERY pleased with the unit. I note that the previous reviews are from 2006 so there may have been some improvements since then and my June 2007 purchase.

The only part I miss compared to a real fire or a gas fire in the house is the lack of 'glowing embers' at the base of the fire. I can see however the reason these were not included as they are light weight material and would tend to blow out of the unit when operated outside.

Now I gotta start stocking marshmallows in the house for the evenings by the Weber fire pit! Some-mores??? Well a nice scotch also works!

Easy to assemble. Looks awesome. When you tell someone "let's have a fire", they immediately think looking for kindling, getting firewood, smelling like smoke, and waiting until it can be doused at the end of the night. Not with the Weber Flame. Turn on the gas, turn the button to high, push the ignition button.... instant fire. The ceramic logs make it look real, and the lava rocks produce plenty of heat along witht the flames. Crack open a bottle (or two) of wine, whip out the s'mores ingredients and have a great night. When it is all done, turn the dial to off, shut the gas off and install the weather guards....simple. No smell of smoke, no worry of embers while sitting by the fire. Everyone that has seen it absolutely loves it. They all ask me where the propane tank is, because it is "hidden" in the back of the unit under a nice vinyl cover. Found the Weber Flame cover on e-bay for under $26.00 shipped and I highly recommend it. We used to go to everyone elses yards for evenings of conversation, but now they are coming to our place.... life is sweet and the Weber Flame makes it sweeter. Gotta go, the Weber Flame calls.....

Purchased three weeks ago and love it so far. Easy to assemble and even easier to operate. It's well constructed and works as advertised. It does seem to go through the propane much faster than the grill, but the flame is larger and is generally left on for hours at a time. At this cost, it should come with the cover rather than having us dig in for another $45 for the fitted Weber one. Overall, we're happy though.

After reading reviews and comparing prices I selected this model. With amazon Prime I didnt pay s/h fees so purchasing it here was a great deal. This unit arrived in one large box. Moved the fireplace piece by piece onto the patio. The wheels on the heavy base made it easy to move across the dirt and concrete. I am 110 pounds and did not find it too heavy. Assembly instructions were pretty clear. The most difficult step was screwing the hood vent supports to the base. The holes did not match up. After struggling for more than an hour I was able to get three out of four supports attached to the base. The only way to attach the last support was to secure one screw from the inside of the base, rather than the outside as the instructions described. The rest was easy.

The unit lit up just fine. Yes, there is noise. That whooshing, hissing sort of noise from the gas. Not really bothersome but it is noticeable. The fireplace emits a lot of heat on high. No problems lighting or extinguishing the flame.

I also bought the cover. Fits nicely over the fireplace and helps to keep it clean.

Other than the extreme difficulty in attaching the supports it is a good product.

We just bought this used from someone local. I am so excited to have something simple to light on my patio. It will be great anytime. If you can find one of these, buy it. Very sturdy and well made as is expected with Weber products.
