    Received it all in good condition, went together easily and I really like the carrying bag. The firebowl fits into the bag easily and makes it great for storage and carrying.

    Easy to assemble and fits in the zip up case easily. Used it on my recent trip for BBQ and wood fire. Clean up of ash was easy. Too early to comment on durability but it has worked well for the price.

    Assembly Problem


    0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
    December 21, 2013
    After purchasing the unit, yesterday we decided to assemble the unit in preparation for camping next spring. Everything went together as per assembly instruction, however as I folded the 4 legs so I could place in the carrying bag one of the legs would not fold down completely. As I examined the problem I found that the pivot pin hole was drilled incorrectly. Rather than spend the money on gas to return it to the store I made the modification so the leg would clear the frame and fold properly. Looking forward to burning wax logs and having a campfire next spring while camping. The unit appears quite flimsy, however it is light and easy to store. Sadly, there is no provision to issue a comment when registering the warranty with Char-Broil. They could use better quality control at the factory.

    upon arrival this unit went together without a single problem! It was packed well so the shipping damage to the carton was just that - to the carton only. We have since used this unit about a dozen times in the past three weeks. Easy to empty and clean. We don't use the screen cover on it until the flames have died down to just smoldering coals. Haven't tried cooking anything on it and probably won't - we just enjoy sitting beside the fire, reading and having a cup of hot chocolate on these chilly nights. Glad we bought it!!

    What happened to American Products?

    My portable firebowl arrived yesterday. I too had to modify one of the legs before I could use it. The box says designed and tested in the USA, but manufactured in China. And the instructions advise not to overload and only use two or three logs. The picture on the box clearly shows at least four logs on the fire. Also, the instructions warn you twice, ONLY use untreated wood for fuel. The pictures on the box shows them cooking using charcoal! So, what are you really supose to do?

    The Firebowl was difficult to assemble because the holes for the pins were improperly located. It was necessary to file the top end of two legs so the legs would fold for storage.

    Am anxious to try this. It's a good height off of the ground. The cover will definitely keep sparks from flying if the wind comes up. It was easy to assemble and I can't wait to try it.

    Portable camp fire

    Ideal for a ready made, safe and portable fire pit. Stores neatly in it's own cover. Allows you too locate your evening visit with neighbors without worrying about embers up under or on your awning. Have always stayed away from the park fire pits because they were situated too near the coach. Now we can enjoy an evening fire, cook on the grate, and place the screen over the fire to reduce the chance of embers escaping and creating a hazard. When the unit cools down, the legs can be removed and the whole thing zips up in it's own bag for storage, inside or out of the RV. Unlike a permanent campfire, you are insured that the fire is out and no chance of spreading to the forest/grass'.

    We purchased this fire bowl to use at campsites without fire pits. It turned out to be everything we expected it to be. It is just the right size and we love the way it packs-up for storage. If I could make any changes to it, I would like to see it made from a heavier material. I just wonder how long it will last? Still worth the money spent.

    Was pleasantly surprised at how fast it came. Upon opening, was impressed with the packaging, and instructions. Easy to put together, and set up to use. Was extremely impressed with the carry case, expected something like a pvc bag, got a contoured, fitted, pocketed heavy duty carry case that will last for years. It all fits well in the case, and takes up very little space in the underbody box. Great product, we have really enjoyed!!!

    It is great for traveling in the R.V. because the legs come off and it is easy to store. We roast popcorn and coffe on it. It is large enough to keep about 8 to 10 people warm. We love it.

    We haven't used our bowl yet because of the fire restrictions, but the product was what we were looking for. It's a nice product, it should work out just fine and it also came with a carring case which is nice to store it in our trailer. We can't wait to give it a try.

    This portable firebowl is easy to transport, quick to set up and holds an ample amount of wood for a really nice campfire. Nice to know that at the end of the night, when the fire has burned down you can place the screen over the bowl and not to have to worry about the coals and ashes blowing around. There are two things that I have done with mine. 1) I drilled 6 small holes in the bowl to let rain water drain. 2) The bowl seems to rust up fairly easily, so after I get home from a camping trip I clean it up and give it a quick shot of fresh black paint - only takes a few minutes. I would recommend this product.

    This fire pit is perfect for campgrounds that don't allow ground fires. It's very portable and stores great in our rv. Set up and break down takes just minutes. I only gave four stars because it is quite small.

    I love my firebowl. It has everything I was looking for.. I can use it as a campfire or as a grill. It comes with a lid lifter and storage bag.Set up & assembly are very easy. When I'm ready, I just fold it up put it in the bag and load it into the outside side storage. I have an older RV & thought I woild have to transport it inside but it is just the right width.

    We used it for the 1st time this weekend and was really impressed! We used it as a fire pit one night and then the next night used it to cook on. Both times it was great. Love the case it comes in and very happy with our purchase.

    Portable Firebowl, almost perfect

    June 03, 2012
    We received this item about a week ago, and just got around to assembling it last night. Pretty easy assembly, except for one thing: the swivel pin holes on two of the legs are drilled just slightly out of position, and those two legs won't fold closed properly. It's not too big a deal, since you can remove each leg completely in about three seconds. We decided not to return the unit over such a minor complaint. For the amount we paid, the unit is pretty solid, and lighter than I had hoped. Got too windy last night to start the fire, even in the firebowl, so I can't speak to how well it works for a campfire. I suspect that it's a little shallow for anything other than small logs or kindling, unless you leave the screen off. We'll hope to see how it works with a little back pation hotdog roast tomorrow.

    Very nice with Duraflame logs. A little shallow for burning regular firewood. Great backup when there is no regular fire pit. Carrying case very handy. Suggest putting cardboard or other protection between metal parts to avoid denting and scratching when traveling. Cooking grate is a nice touch but I will probably never use.

    Though we haven't used the Fire Bowl yet, I have put it together and then packed it away in its nicely-made, heavy-duty zippered storage bag, and I'm impressed with the design. It can serve as a fire pit or a wood barbeque grill and goes together easily. I'm hoping it functions as well as it seems likely to!

    Great Portable Fire Pit

    October 10, 2011
    I just purchased this from Camping World for a week of camping with friends. We had a fire nightly and it worked great. We liked the portability and saw at least 4 more people using the same fire pit. The only downfall was and the only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is the zipper broke the fire time we went to zip it up in the carrying pouch. We were still able to store it in there and we have a spot for it in our RV, but for people who would depend on it that would be a bummer!

    Works exactly as described, very happy with it. As far as rusting, page 5 of instructions states While formulated to withstand high temperatures, painted surface can fade, peel, and eventually rust due to the extreme, damaging heat that wood-burning fires can produce.

    I purchased this fire pit over other bigger ones because it was portable and had a carry case. The legs are a bit whimpy so make sure you get it push in the ground for more stability. Also you need very small cut logs to fit the shallow bowl. So if you want a fire while camping at a place that won't let you dig a dirt pit this was an ok option.

    CW price higher than list

    Only when I got to the store to pick one up did I learn the manufacturer - Char-Broil. Since the info here is scant I thought I would see how what I could learn from their web site. Then I realized that the $88.xx price at CW was much higher than the list price at the Char-Broil web site, and that I could order it from them for $59.99. I never thought of CW as the low price leader, but I didn't think of them as a giant rip-off either. I was at CW because of some big Grill Fest sale and the sale price was lower, so I bought it. I have assembled it but haven't used it yet. I couldn't help feeling a little slimy though as I left CW.

    This Charbroil Portable Outdoor Firebowl Model 10501572 is a nicely made compact unit that comes with the convenince of a canvas storage bag. However, it does not include a cover for storing outside between uses even though the instructions advise covering it so that it doesn't rust. Be sure to shop before you buy.
