It’s not often that other retailers will beat budget supermarket, Aldi, on price – but Amazon just did. Perfect for summer gatherings, Amazon is selling an outdoor fire pit that’s £25 cheaper than an Aldi SpecialBuy.
Now that outdoor gatherings with family and friends are once again back on the cards post-Covid restrictions, the garden gadget is a must have for summer barbecues and parties.
The £65.99 Amazon buy is a three-in-one wood burning fire pit table with a mesh screen lid which can be used for keeping warm and cooking barbecue food.
One shopper managed to bag theirs for £55 in the sale, sharing the new piece of kit to the Facebook group ‘Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Group’. It’s since gone up in price by £10.99, but still a snip of the price of Aldi’s Gardenline Square Fire Pit.
The Amazon description reads: “The outdoor fire pit is made of high-quality steel frame, heat-resistant fire bowl, four metal legs and safety mesh cover. With weather resistant, large load-bearing capacity, long-lasting durability and rustproof features, this kind of wood burning fire pit is very sturdy and durable.”
Not only can it be used as a fire pit, but also as a brazier, ice bucket and 32 inch dining table. It’s suggested to be suitable for four to eight people to use, and shoppers say it’s easy to assemble.
One customer wrote: “Very easy to assemble, bigger than expected which I was very happy with, great value for the money, very happy with this product and would recommended.”
Another added: “Excellent for the price, value for money and looks lovely.”
Meanwhile, Aldi’s £89.99 SpecialBuy is said to be a ‘party must have’. Aldi said: “Breathe new life into your outdoor areas with this fire pit, is the perfect way to create a delightful warm and cosy evening through the colder nights.
“It is designed with a spark cover and also includes a poker, grill and mesh cover. This contemporary rustic steel made fire pit will bring some real warmth and style to your garden evenings.”
Shoppers have rated the equipment five stars, with one commenting: “It was easy to put together and looks great. Not tried it yet, was going to this weekend but it gives sleet and snow in the weather forecast so different to last week.”
Another said: “Bought a few weeks back. Happy with what I paid for it.”
Aldi have also released its own Gardenline gas pizza oven for just £199.99, saving nearly £3.000 compared to similar products on the market. Shoppers looking to save – and serve – some dough can pick the pizza oven up online with free delivery, and enjoy authentic fired pizzas alfresco from home.
And to complete the garden set up this summer, The Range have also got a gazebo that turns your garden into a pub – and it’s only £249.00.
