This model not only looks impressive on any deck or patio with its modern and stylish stainless steel construction design but it is also easy to use. The Piezo ignition system quickly ignites the heater for fast use. You simply push a button to ignite the heater. There is a large, easy-to-use knob that lets you control the heat level from low to high. The knob also turns the heater off when not in use.

The patio heater is large, but the base can quickly be filled with water or sand to stabilize the unit and keep it from tipping. However, if it should tip due to some unforeseen calamity, there is a safety switch that automatically turns the heater off if it senses any tipping.

Anyone who is serious about year-round outdoor heating is going to love the AmazonBasics Commercial Patio Heater. With an impressive 46,000 BTU’s of heat, it quickly warms up a large diameter of up to 18 feet around the heater. The heat output is also conveniently controlled so you can adjust it for a blustery spring day or a chilly winter evening. The wheels on the base also allow you to wheel the heater wherever you need it the most. The wheeled mobility enables it to be quickly wheeled across the deck or patio when required.

Other highlights of this heater not mentioned:

  • A reflector defuses the heat so the unit can be used beneath a well-ventilated canopy.
  • Easy assembly. It takes only about one hour for a person to fully assemble the heater out of the box.
  • As with all items, Amazon encourages their customers to buy with confidence because they stand behind their products.
  • Made of commercial grade stainless steel so will not rust when exposed to the elements.
  • When fully assembled the heater measures an impressive 33 x 18 x 89 inches.
  • It readily utilizes a 20-pound tank of propane (not included) that often lasts users months before needing to be refilled.

There are only three downsides to this heater that we found.

The printed instructions contain a few errors but they can be easily bypassed with common sense.

Some users have reported that the paint near the heater burns off or flakes away after the unit has been heated and used. Although, once the small rim of painted color is gone there are no other reported problems with the heater’s surface.

The other issue that a few users have encountered is the ignition switch fails to ignite. However, many users state that if the dial is turned halfway between the off and high marks the ignition switch will work with no problem. Once it ignites then the user can adjust the knob to low or high to control the heat output.
