Partner Steel Mini Fire Pan - Camp fire pan
This is a Mini Fire Pan, has no frills, just a simple steel box made from 14Ga soft steel. One side slides into the other, making an open fire pan that measures from 15 to 25 inches long x 13 1/2 x 3 1/4. With the pan closed, it is a compact 15 x 13 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches. It is intended to be placed directly on the ground with rocks under the fire pan. Reasoning behind having the rocks is to keep the fire pan off the ground as heat scorches the ground and nothing will grow there for about 7 years. All pans are Forest Service approved for camping on all rivers, including the Grand Canyon of the Colorado.

The legs on the fire pans only came about the when "no trace camping" was introduced. The reason is that when you burn on the ground nothing will grow for 7 years after. Read about "Leave only Footprints, take only Pictures" , no trace Camping.
