The Snow Peak Takibi Fire Pit Is 20 Percent Off

Several years ago, I wrote about the fire pit that made me like camping again. At that time, my children were much younger than they are now, and a packable, simple, and sturdy fire pit that didn’t require fiddling and had an easy-to-use and easy-to-clean grill cover made camping a much more manageable proposition. 

Camping has finally gotten a little easier, but I still really love this fire pit. With wildfire season imminent, it also makes sense to take precautions to make your outdoor fires safer. Snow Peak’s grill folds down for easy storage in your car trunk. You can also adjust the grill height to three different levels for different cooking temperatures. In the over 20 years since Snow Peak CEO Tohru Yamai designed it, he’s only ever gotten two customer complaints. The updated version of BioLite’s FirePit is also on sale as well.
