Round Burners

Round Burners are the most popular style of fire pit burners because they are the most versatile.

Obviously, they are the ideal insert for round and square fire pits, but if you are planning to build a custom shape fire pit, the odds are pretty high you will need to install a round burner.

Triangular, octangular, hexagonal, etc., they all lend themselves to the use of a round burner.

Every major manufacturer has at least one range of the humble round burner, and some have several.

So what should you be looking for when selecting your round burner?

Features Common to all Good Quality Round Burners:

  1. The burner should be manufactured from Stainless steel.
  2. Good quality burners have a Lifetime Warranty.
  3. The gas holes should be drilled, creating a gas flow and better flame. Punched holes leave a burr on the inside of the burner, which interferes with the gas flow and can make noise.
  4. The burner should have either a half-inch ( Standard Capacity ) or three-quarter-inch ( High Capacity ) gas inlet to be compatible with standard gas connections.

Some manufactures create a raised central hub on their round burners to prevent water from entering the gas lines and valves.
