This fire pit is largely as described but the rusting finish is not Corten steel but an applied finish. It is made of mild steel and the finish of the wall turns black after a day of use. The spark cover, however, has a black paint finish which very quickly burns off so it is sort of pointless. The firepit is a nice size but could have had more packing material in the box which was too lightly constructed. Although my firepit arrived without damage the box itself was ripped and coming apart.
After unboxing the Patina Products Fire Pit, it became a mad dash to set it up and enjoy! The build quality is excellent and the design was really nicely done. We put sand in the bottom and used bricks to form a pedestal for the wood to sit on. Because of the tall sides there was plenty of room for air flow for the burning embers. I recommend this fire pit. From the quality of materials used to construct it to the very fast shipping time it took to be delivered I am pleased with my purchase. If you want to use a fire pit that has years of usability( read a 5 year warranty). This one by Patina Products fit the bill! Five Star
Over a 15 year period this is the 3rd fire pit I have bought from Patina (formally SoeJo). They are fantastic!
Box was open.
