We didn't find any professional reviews that cover woodburning fire pits, but they tend to get higher ratings from owners than other types of patio heaters. We found the most owner-written reviews at Amazon.com, but nearly a dozen owners also review and rate the Landmann Big Sky Stars & Moons fire pit at Buzzillions.com, and a handful add useful comments at Target.com.
Owners say this round steel fire pit holds plenty of logs and provides a lot of fun and ambience as well as warmth. The wood fire shows through the moon and star cutouts; other designs are also available. The Landmann Big Sky Stars & Moons fire pit comes with a cooking grate so you can do more than just roast marshmallows, and a spark shield adds safety. Note that although the fire pit stands on legs, it's designed only for use on a masonry surface. The Landmann fire pit comes in a clay color or black and carries a one-year warranty. If you want instant heat for a smaller area, you can spend about the same amount of money for a small propane patio heater like the Endless Summer 92000 Tabletop Heater (*est. $125).
The Landmann Big Sky Stars & Moons Fire Pit is one of three Landmann wood-burning fire pits that get above-average ratings from owners here.

Nearly a dozen owners review the Big Sky Stars & Moons Fire Pit here, giving it a near-perfect average rating. One owner notes that you can seat about ten people around it comfortably. The main drawback is that it needs a cover since there's no drain hole for rain.
