Are Copper Fire Pits Better?
I think we all want to know if the copper fire pit is better than, say a steel, cast iron, or brick fire pits. They all have their pros and cons. For many, the look of the copper fire pit is what’s going to make them want to buy one.
They will also not rust or break. Steel and cast iron will rust, so you’ll be combating the elements with those. And a brick fire pit would be more permanent, whereas a copper fire pit can be moved where ever people are gathering.
How to Clean a Copper Fire Pit
You can clean your copper fire pit either at “opening season” or after your fire pit season is over. You’d probably want to do the cleaning when the season is over so you can put it away easily. Your future self will thank you too.
- Clean out all the ash and debris. You can use most of the ash debris for composting if you’d like. If you don’t compost, you can still just dump it in a corner and it will be fine for your yard.
- Rinse it out a bit to get any extra soot out.
- Mix 3 cups of white vinegar and 1/4 cup of salt
- Add to empty bowl
- With a scrubby, start cleaning the bowl with your scrubby to get the tarnish off the copper bowl.
As mentioned above, the up-front cost isn’t the only point of concern with copper fire pits. The maintenance required is also higher than your standard steel fire pit. This is especially true if you want to keep the shiny exterior!
So, what maintenance is necessary for copper fire pits?
If you want to avoid the patina that eventually sets in, you’ll have to regularly perform the following:
- Completely dump the lingering ash, wood, charcoal, and creosote into a garbage bag or compost pile.
- For massive build-ups of creosote, use a mallet and putty knife to chip away at it.
- Using detergent and a clean rag, thoroughly scrub the inside of the copper fire pit.
- If soot remains caked on, grab commercial cleaner or lemon and salt. Apply to the impacted areas until the lingering debris is gone.
- Finally, use a chamois towel to polish the fire pit in a circular motion.
As you can see, there’s quite a bit more effort in keeping the copper fire pit clean as a whistle. But when you see flickering flames reflected off the shining surface, you’ll know why you put in the effort!
Do Copper Fire Pits Rust?
Copper fire pits will not rust! Only metals containing iron develop rust during oxidation. Instead of rust, the copper develops that green patina regularly found on pennies.
However, that green color takes up to 20 years to form!
