We set out to find one of the best on the market and we are very happy to say we succeeded. We found this steel beauty made right here in the U.S.A. This 28" Lifetime Fireplace Grate has 1" wide x 1/2" thick steel bars giving the welds more contact to ensure that the grate is going to stick with you for a lifetime of fire burning. And if you don't already own a fireplace grate, its benefits far outweigh the cost. Having a grate helps protect the floor of your fireplace, and will give you a more even and better-quality burn along with better drafting. Drafting will not only supercharge your fire, but also make sure the smoke goes out your chimney as opposed to in your living room. This heavy-duty grate comes in at a hefty 39 pounds with 3 and a 1/4" legs to allow for proper airflow so your fire burns nice and evenly. This fireplace grate is suitable to burn both coal and wood, however, is not recommended for use in wood stoves, wood stove inserts or outdoors.

Steel versus Cast Iron has long been a heated debate among fire enthusiasts in the fire grate community. While they both hold their own and each do well for different people depending on their needs, here are some of the main differences between the two. Our heavy-duty Lifetime Fireplace Grates made of steel will definitely last longer than anything else we have, however, there is also mid-grade steel grates that would work well for someone who doesn't use their fireplace as much. For cast iron options, most of these are made primarily with coal in mind. Having less of a gap in between to allow it to not fall through. This can be a hindrance with larger pieces of wood in that ash may build up causing the fire to sort of fizzle out. While cast iron is strong it's not nearly as strong as top-tier steel but is more durable than your middle-of-the-road steel products.
