If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’ve been bit by the backyard revamp bug. Yet, aside from investing in ultra-comfortable poolside loungers—plus a luxurious private jet pool float—you won’t want to overlook a game-changing upgrade: a tabletop fire pit. Not only are they great for anyone who doesn’t have $5K to spend on an Outer fire pit (a PureWow reader fave), but they also use clean-burning fuel, like bio ethanol, which has a smokeless burn. And when it comes to budget-friendly options, you won’t have to look further than this mini fireplace by Northwest for just $52.

As mentioned above, this guy is designed to be fueled with bio ethanol, so it produces a nearly smokeless burn. That means that you won’t have to worry about hacking up a lung when you’re roasting marshmallows with the kids this summer. Plus, despite its compact 14-inch length, it has a hefty heat output that can warm a 250-square-foot room in minutes. The best part? It lasts up to 45 minutes and has a guard that protects from heavy wind blowing the flame out. 

“It’s easy to set up—I used [the recommended bio ethanol] fuel to ignite the fire and it worked well. I also brought it outdoors during a VERY windy evening and the fire continued to burn. Lasted about 45 minutes,” one reviewer reports. Add to that the fact that it can be used indoors and outdoors—and the glass panels are removable (aka easy to clean). “It’s small, lightweight, highly portable and sets off a nice flame … I use it inside the living room [during winter] and take it out on the patio during summer. You can even add stones like you would with a larger fire pit,” another reviewer adds. 

Sold? Same. Thanks to the wallet-friendly price tag we’re getting one for ourselves and another for Dad as a Father’s Day gift
