Used to go through a grate per year. Now have 2 of these lifetime grates and no sign of them breaking down any time soon.
After replacing cheaper grates almost annually, this grate appears to be the real thing. Very heavy duty and I love that it sits a little higher than the others. It fits perfectly. I have only used it one season but I'm expecting it to last. No signs of wear yet.
OK if Modified
Purchased the grate for use in a Buck Fireplace Insert and used it now for 3 years. The grate held up OK for 1 year but the heat slowly bowed the grate and it collapsed in the rear. I straightened the grate and welded a center support on the rear and so far the grate has held up fine. I would purchase this grate again but would modify it first.

We had not had really cold weather, so we just started burning our fire place this week. We like the grate very much. My husband didn't think he would because the bars are so far apart, so I bought an ember retainer something we had never used before and he found it very satisfactory. We are very pleased and will be waiting to see how long the ember retainer lasts. I'm pretty sure the grate will last and that is what I wanted.
The only ones they had around here are cast iron and thin. The last one we had snapped one of the bars the first fire we had! By the end of winter, I had a huge hole burned through the middle. It was a basket type with shorter legs. Thank you for providing us with this product.

The grate is heavy duty and i'm expecting it to last. I burn hard wood so it gets very hot. A simple cast grate falls apart in less than a seson. So far i'm very inpressed and would suggest it to everyone.
We love our new grate. So much better than the ones at Home Depot, etc. that melt after a few fires. Highly recommend!
