My issue so for is the mesh bottom does not look to me like it will last, but that is to be found out as these units get more use.
My intended primary use is for my dutch oven. I emailed the manufacturer that I planned to use some scrap aluminum I have on top of the mesh as a firm support. Was told that was not a good idea and to wait for the aluminum grate the manufacturer has planned.
I will probably run some tests and report back here on solutions to make the unit work better for dutch ovens.
Glad to hear you're happy with the Pit so far! The Fire Mesh is made from a special stainless steel alloy designed to withstand repeated heating and cooling cycles. It will eventually break down and stretch (we're estimating this point to be at around 50 fires) at which point you'll need a new Fire Mesh ($18.95).
One of the big features we wanted to have with the pit was the modular design that way if you accidentally break something on the pit you just buy what you broke instead of a whole new pit.
We are working as fast as we can on the new grilling grates but we did only launch the Pit two weeks ago so we're still getting the lead out as far as production goes!
Let us know if you have anymore questions!
