Snow Peak, Japanese purveyors of outdoor knick knacks, have come up with a super portable Pack & Carry Fire Place, a collapsible fire pit that offers up glowing embers and that distinctly charred smell without you ever leaving the concrete jungle. Folding down to a compact size, it is perfect for hosting rooftop roasts (check with the building's super before) or backyard cookouts if you're so lucky. And it’s made of stainless steel. Classy, and clean. Oh, and it does allow for less messy campgrounds — and less laborious cleanups — when you actually do make it outside the city limits.
It might not be the pit the counselors built at summer camp, but at $190, it’s a pretty hot deal. And those microwavable hot dogs taste like rubber.
