Runner Up Metal Tiki TorchA very close second choice within the category of Metal Tiki Torches is the Tiki Brand Stainless Steel Torch. This is a great looking torch that, in comparison with the H Potter Copper one mentioned above, is significantly lower in cost. These torches look more like modern light fixtures than Tiki torches, but that is probably why we like them so much. This is the perfect choice if you are looking for elegance but are on more of a selective budget.

Runner Up Budget Metal Tiki TorchIf you are on a tight budget but want to find something stylish and attractive to compliment your garden, then our choice of budget metal tiki torch will be a sure fit for you! The best budget metal tiki torch is the Tiki Brand Urban Metal torch. This style is available in three colors, and our favorite is the Midnight Blue shown here. These units look as good, if not better than, many higher priced tiki torches. It has a deep color which gives these torches as strong sense of value.
If you are looking for something to help bring out the wow factor of your outdoor space without breaking the bank, then these have to be on your wish list. Find out more about our budget choice below.
Metal Tiki Torches: Product Reviews
As I have briefly alluded to above, the Tiki Brand Urban metal tiki torch is a great choice when you consider what you get for your money.
The Urban torch is available in three color options: bronze, midnight blue, and army green. The midnight blue colored unit in particular looks very attractive and definitely helps it to fit in to almost any garden or outdoor space.
A feature that sets this design apart from the majority of other tiki torches available, and what was not mentioned above, is the fact that this particular choice of Tiki torch has four separate uses!
These uses are as follows:
- 65 inch torch (ground mounted)
- 50 inch torch (ground mounted)
- Deck torch (deck mounted)
- Table torch (tabletop)
From this you can see that this is a very versatile item. If you are looking to have torches spaced around a decking area, then these are suitable and would be fit for this purpose. Or whether you are looking to have a torch placed within a table or seating area, again this will be the perfect choice! It is possible to purchase several of these torches, and use them in different ways, repeating the design motif but changing the context from tabletop to deck mount to ground mount.
In comparison to kitschy bamboo torches, this tiki torch has a variety of uses and therefore is a no-brainer, especially when you look at the very low price. Bamboo torches usually tend to have just one use, and that is as a ground mounted torch to line a lawn or walkway. Those bamboo versions also do not have the benefits of having a stylish, sleek design.
- Very easy to assemble without the use of any tools!
- Can burn for up to 5 hours
- The wide mouth canister makes it easy to pour into, and therefore minimizes the amount of potential mess and spillages.
Why would you get a bamboo version that over time will rot due to being a wooden based product? While we encourage you to take these inside when the weather is inclement, these units will last a long time given their robust built quality.
The Bottom LineThese midnight blue metal tiki torches are fantastic products that will last a very long time and will showcase your garden to the highest standard. The Urban torch line hits a great price point, has a nice aesthetic, and offers many different use cases. These are hard to beat!
The Island King Large Flame Torch is another item that would be perfect for those of you who may be on a budget. The appearance of the Island King torch looks fairly exotic, and brings out the authenticity of having a tiki torch, while still offering a modern take on the Tiki Torch theme.
These torches will expel a larger than normal flame due to their design, so this will have to be taken into consideration when you are making your purchase. As with all torches, be mindful of children and pets that may be able to come into close proximity to these.
Adding a natural flame lighting to any situation always seems to make it more cozy. There are the people who always have candles lit inside the house to get this effect; with these tiki torches you can do the same to your outside living space. Create a warm and welcoming ambiance to your garden through the use of these well designed large flame torches.
Here’s a quick video showcasing this metal tiki torch line:
- Flames will generally be up to 5 times larger than the traditional bamboo version of torches
- The twist and pour design makes it easy to refill these torches
- Wind resistant! These torches will remain fully lit, even in windy weather conditions
The high quality materials that have gone into making these torches, along with the manufacturing technology mean that these are a fantastic choice of metal tiki torch.
The Bottom LineWhen looking into which tiki torch to buy for your garden, then the Island King large flame torch should feature rather highly on your wish list. The flame is large, and the price is reasonable. While we don’t love the look compared to some of the other units on our list, these are still a nice choice.
If you are looking for a variety of torch that is more contemporary, then the Swirl Blue Bubble tiki torch may well be the right choice for you. While the frame is made of metal, the head is made of bubble glass. Glass is naturally resistant to the elements, but is also susceptible to breakage more so than metal or bamboo. For this reason, those with pets and children should be extra cautious with these torches.
The very attractive blue glass head of the torch sits firmly on a well manufactured, weather resistant pole. These can be used to line a lawn or pathway. Using these in prominent places around the garden will help in giving a gentle flame-lit ambiance that will provide you hours of enjoyment in your outdoor living space.
These Blue Glass tiki torches have many benefits which help to make them stand out over the more traditionally used bamboo torches.
- A burn time of up to 5 hours
- Durable and long lasting glass product
- Weather resistant metal used on the torches poles and swirl frame
- Blue glass material
These stunning torches will be sure to bring the right amount of mood lighting that you may require within your garden or outdoor space. The price of these help to make them attractive to potential buyers and therefore they should feature on your possible list of torches to look further into before making your final purchase decision.
The Bottom LineThe bubble glass design of the Swirl tiki torches is cool, though we don’t love the look of the spiral metal support system. The price is reasonable, and these units are a great choice for many.
Adding metal torches to your outdoor space is a great way of making it cosy and to bring an element of mood lighting and a romantic ambiance.
The Tiki Brand Stainless Steel Torch will definitely be a great way of achieving all of those things, though at a price that is higher than many competing products. This variety of torch is made from stainless steel, which is different from many of the others that I have mentioned within this page. They are also massively different to the more traditional bamboo torches which over time will rot and degrade due to being made out of a wooden based product.
- Stands at a height of 60 inches
- Sleek and elegant design
- Made from weather and corrosion resistant materials
- Easy to assemble and no tools required
- Fibreglass wick is long lasting
- Stainless steel snuffer (attached)
These elegant stainless steel torches are a great purchase if you are looking to add some enchanted mood lighting to your outdoor space.
One issue that some buyers have encountered is that the interior canister can rust when left out in the elements. While the stainless steel outer shell is robust, the inner container does not have the same properties, and some have run into problems with the inner container. We advise taking these inside when the weather looks nasty.
The Bottom LineIf you are considering purchasing an outdoor torch for your garden then you need to have these stainless steel versions on your wish list.
The H Potter Rustic Garden Torch Set is our top choice, and one quick look shows you why. These are really beautiful lanterns. If money is not an issue to you then we do not see any other garden torch that you could possibly want! This is by far the best in every aspect.
The fantastic color of these torches and the deep patina will have you looking at them for hours! They are made from the very best materials and offer so many benefits. The torches mentioned above all outweigh the traditional bamboo torches; however the H Potter Copper Rustic Torch literally outweighs all of the ones above put together!
It is not only the attractiveness and added benefit of this coming as a set of two torches that make them stand out from the crowd. There are a number of factors that will help to show you just how much more they have to offer you.
- Comes as a set of two, or sold individually
- Has a copper finish that has been hand applied
- Canister can hold up to 24 ounces of fluid
- Versatile powder coated stands
- Comes with a deck mount for use with decking
- Snuffer cap attached through the use of a brass chain
An obvious difference between the H Potter torches and the competition is the burning time. With these torches allowing up to 24 ounces of fluid while the others reviewed on this page being able to hold up to 8 ounces at most, these torches have the greatest burn time, and the least amount of time fiddling with fuel.
The structure is made of stainless steel, and coated with a beautiful copper color that elevates these torches above the competition (in quality as well as price). The rod is made of powder coated steel, and the torch easily separates from the rod for storage. The rod is approximately 6′ tall, and for those who wish to mount on a deck, an elegant deck plate is included as well.
Coming from a manufacturer who has been making garden products for over 20 years, you will have the peace of mind that your top quality garden torches are built to last!
The Bottom LineBy the use of the best possible materials, and manufactured with experience, the H Potter garden torch set will be one of the best accessories you can buy for your garden or outdoor space. These are in our opinion the best available on today’s market. Take a look for yourself today and see just why we rate them so highly.
If you are looking for some outdoor lighting that will help to bring out your garden’s or outdoor space’s features, then metal tiki garden torches are a great way to go. The ones on this list above are all elegant, and are built from good quality materials at a great range of prices. The use of their flames will help to create a magical ambiance and romantic natural lighting for your garden.
As always be sure to keep children and pets away from these torches.
