With more camping areas and caravan parks requiring visitors to maintain their campfires in a purpose-built fire pit, it is worth considering having a collapsible fire pit in your collection of camping gear.
The Ironman 4×4 new collapsible fire pit has been designed with practicality and functionality, front of mind.
Size always matters
The two sizes that matter are packed and assembled.
The Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit packs down nicely to a modest 530mm long x 400mm wide, meaning it will take up barely any room in your vehicle and fits nicely into the Ironman 4×4 Drawer Systems laying down.
When assembled, the measurements are 530mm long x 400mm wide x 300mm high and packs in a heavy-duty carry bag.
The Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is the ideal size for a group of two to five.
Large enough to get a solid campfire going, radiating good warmth from the top and sides, while not so big that is eats firewood at a rate faster than you can feed it.
With the collection of firewood also becoming increasingly difficult in many areas, the Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is a great size for pre-cut firewood – often purchased from a local service station.
It can also be used with other fuel, including lump charcoal and heat beads.
The Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is precision cut from 3mm steel and is designed with ribs to improve overall strength and reduced warpage.
The main fire box is constructed simply of four sheets that interlock together – two ends and two sides.
Clean and efficient heat is aided by the inclusion of ventilation points around the body and base, and all pieces are treated with a heat-resistant coating.
Embers and dropped coals are one of the greater dangers of raised fire pits.
To reduce this risk, the Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is supplied complete with a steel ember tray on which the fire pit can be positioned, protecting the ground underneath.
And while we all enjoy getting cosy around a fire, there’s also nothing quite like a meal cooked on one.
So, each Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is supplied with a flat barbecue plate that sits across the fire and features a non-stick surface.
In addition, there are a series of slots located along the sides that allow the fitment of the two supplied pot rails.
This holds a frypan, kettle, small camp oven or saucepan – not included – over the fire.
The nature of the beast results in you unpacking or storing some dusty steel plates, so to keep your vehicle clean, each Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit is sold with a sturdy PVC carry bag included.
If the idea of settling in for a day by the fire and spinning some lamb gyros or chicken over some hot coals has you salivating, you’ll be happy to know that Ironman 4×4 are also offering an optional spit rotisserie kit that attaches directly to the Ironman 4×4 Folding Fire Pit.
Powered by two D-sized cell batteries – not included– the rotisserie is rated to hold up to 4kg of meat, threaded and secured onto a stainless-steel skewer with two prongs.
To keep the rotisserie turning evenly, a counterweight is supplied to balance the rod, and a handy meat thermometer ensures you will always be able to serve perfectly cooked meals to all.
The rotisserie is a great feature – not only for camping, but for catering at home too.
