My Best Pick – the MasterCanopy Pop up Gazebo

The gazebo itself is not even an issue, the issue is which one. And that means which one best suits your garden, occasion or even budget. As usual, we like to do the hard work so that you and the future generation will find it easy to choose gazebos that’ll satisfy your needs.


Below is the winner of our ‘Top Pick Award’, the MasterCanopy 3m x 3m Pop-up Gazebo which is the best Gazebo for most homeowners. Easy to erect within a few minutes, fully waterproof in even rain showers and outstanding build quality whilst still offering excellent value for money and includes 1-year warranty. It truly is a very impressive gazebo.

BEST POPUP GAZEBO FOR 2021

MasterCanopy 3m x 3m Pop-up Gazebo
After trying around 3 pop up gazebos, I have now been using the MasterCanopy gazebo for over a year and what an amazing gazebo. After testing a few over the last few years for this review, this is the one I decided to keep for myself as most don't even come close to the build quality. It's made from quality steel, had a fully waterproof cover and also has reinforced joints and large click buttons to make fixing the frame into place easy without trapping your fingers. I can set it up in under 3 minutes on my own, 1 minute with another pair of hands, check my video review further down to see this in action. Overall, if you're looking for a pop-up style gazebo, I highly recommend the MasterCanopy Gazebo.

Premium Pick

Outsunny 3m x 3m Polycarbonate Gazebo
Buying a good quality product like the Outsunny 3m x 3m Polycarbonate Gazebo is a good idea because it's an easy to install permanent structure and can be used all year round. This amazing gazebo features a strong aluminium frame and UV resistant panels, plus it comes with curtains which most other models charge extra for. The large gazebo is very stable and we think is one of the best models of this design currently available. Amazing quality and a great choice for someone who wants a more permanent gazebo. If your wondering, you don't have to attach the curtains and can be left open on all sides too.

  • Exception build quality with heavy-duty steel frame and reinforced joints with quick-release buttons to secure the frame.

  • The pop-up canopy offers 9 square meters of coverage from the sun and rain which is easily big enough for 6-10 people.

Check out my video review which also shows how easy it is to put up

You can read my full in-depth review of the MasterCanopy gazebo in my review post here

The MasterCanopy Pop Up Gazebo is the best pop up gazebo on our list and its easy to see why it truly is an impressive gazebo. We have now been testing this latest model by MasterCanopy for a little over 12 months and it has truly stood up well to everything we have thrown at it.

It’s one of the easiest to erect and has some nice features I have not seen on some of the other models, this includes the velcro corners that hold the cover in place. This is very useful on days that its a little windy.

So question everyone always asks, how easy is it to put up and how long does it take?

So with this gazebo, I have been personally using in my own garden as it’s my favourite one (one of the perks of being a product reviewer), it takes me and the wife around a minute in total. That’s from taking it out of the bag to having the deck chairs under it. However, on my own, which if I’m honest is how I prefer to put it, it takes me around two and a half to three minutes and it’s ready to use.

Mastercanopy Heavy Duty Frame being put up

It also has a heavy-duty steel frame, far superior to most other cheaper gazebos, it has 3 height setting which is something you don’t often see on popup gazebos but with this, you can adjust the height from 64 inches from the floor to the canopy, 68 inches make it slightly taller and you can have it on the tallest setting which is around 6ft, I’m 5’8ft and I have plenty of headroom. To be clear, it’s not 6ft under the gazebo, it actually up to 8ft to the vent in the centre.

So the cover has held up well against the elements, I like that it also has a vent in the top, great for keeping cooler on warm days, its also great if you put a BBQ underneath like I do, you can also check my gas BBQ reviews here or even consider a BBQ gazebo.

I don’t know the exact rating of the cover but is fully waterproof, even in heavy rain showers and it’s UV 50+. Its a good quality fabric and still looks new now although I don’t leave it up all the time and I do look after it.

The frame, as mentioned is made from steel and is a fairly heavy gauge steel bar for a pop-up gazebo. It’s the way it expands and clicks into place using the large thumb buttons that’s impressive and makes it easier to put up and takedown. The joints are all reinforced and you can tell too, high-quality plastic on the joints.

In the picture above, between the two sets of cross bars, you can see the velcro that the covers also sticks to. This is a great feature that could be easily missed, makes putting the canopy on much easier.

One last thing worth mentioning is that the cover can stay on when you fold the frame down which literally takes 10-20 seconds. You then simply put it into the bag which is also easy and it has wheels which makes moving it around easy. Next time you get it out, the cover already on so it’s even quicker to get setup.

What’s in the box

  • 1 x heavy duty frame with reinforced joints.
  • 1 x waterproof cover with air vent.
  • 1 x PVC fabric carry bag with wheels.
  • 4 x leg weight bags.
  • 8 x tent pegs.
  • Guide ropes

Thoughts and Recommendation

If you’re looking for a quality pop up gazebo that is easy to put up, as previously mentioned, it takes me 3 minutes max and that’s on my own. Less than a minute with the wife if I can put up with the arguments.

Peg one leg down to make opening the frame easier on your own
Peg one leg down to make opening the frame easier on your own

If your putting it up on your own, a little tip is to peg down one of the legs with two pegs so you can pull the frame away from the leg that fixed down which makes opening the frame miles easier. Also, don’t fully open the frame before putting the cover on. The frame needs to be partly closed to put the cover on.

MasterCanopy Gazebo perfect for keeping the sun off a kids bouncy castle

Overall I think it’s a fantastic pop-up gazebo and if I was looking for a new gazebo, I would be choosing this one every time. It’s also available in many different colours but I prefer the brown colour, MasterCanopy calls it Khaki, it’s also available in 2.5m x 2.5m and 2m x 3m if the larger 3m x 3m is too large. I have been using it to cover my bouncy castle to keep the sun off it when the kids are on it. It’s a fairly large kid’s bouncy castle so you can see the 3m x 3m gazebo covers it no problem.

2. Outsunny 3m x 3m Polycarbonate Gazebo

**PREMIUM PICK**

Outsunny Garden Gazebo 3x3m
  • Offers a wide sitting capacity for parties and events.
  • It is very stable thanks to the metal plates and round fixings.
  • Features a durable aluminium rustproof frame.
  • Includes 4 curtains for more privacy.
  • It is weather-resistant and easy to keep clean.
  • Comes with a strong polycarbonate roof with UV-protection.
  • Offers good value for money.

Enjoy a relaxed time with friends and family under the Toolport Polycarbonate Gazebo. This gazebo measures 3m x 3m but is also available in 3 x 4 meters for those looking for a slightly larger model and therefore it is large enough to house a nice dining set or hot tub with ease. If you are having a family gathering or hot tub party, this model is adaptable as it comes with a durable polyester roof that will shade you from the sun with a UV rating or 50+ and is fully waterproof.

Outsunny Garden Gazebo 3x3m

The gazebo’s frame is made entirely out of aluminium which is a durable material and will not rust. Perhaps more importantly, it’s super strong so with take anything the good old British weather can throw at it.

A stone grey powder-coated finish has been applied to the aluminium frame to complement the colour of the curtains. The curtains themselves are easy to secure around the frame and they are easy to keep clean. Thanks to the UV resistant fabric, the curtains can maintain their appearance instead of fading over time.

The Outsunny Gazebo does not need sandbags to be stable because the structure is supported by large plates that can be fastened to the ground which are all included. Whether you are placing the gazebo on grass or concrete or paved floor, you can trust that the gazebo will hold up even in very windy weather.

To assemble this gazebo you might need a hand because there are several parts to be assembled and it does take around 4-6 hours to build for two people.

Outsunny Garden Gazebo 3x3m

Negatives

  • Assembly instructions could be clearer.

Thoughts and Recommendation

The Outsunny 3m x 3m Polycarbonate Gazebo is a premium quality product that offers good value for money. It covers a wide surface area and it is fully waterproof and therefore you can get to use it all year round.

Have coffee on a rainy day or chill on a hot day with a sundae thanks to the 8mm polycarbonate roof that also gives UV protection while still letting plenty of light in at the same time. 

Although the assembly instructions are maybe a little difficult to understand, one will still be able to assemble the gazebo correctly just make sure you follow the instructions to a tee.

Overall, it is a good looking gazebo that can serve you for years to come in all weathers and would make a great choice for anyone looking for a more permanent model.


3. Airwave 3 x 3m Pop Up Gazebo

BEST BUDGET PICK

Best Budget Gazebo - Airwave 3 x 3m Pop Up Gazebo
  • Very easy to build  and can be erected within a minute.
  • Water resistant for shelter against the odd light shower.
  • Comes with carry bag for easy storage.
  • Pegs and guy rope kit included for better stibility,
  • Dimentions – 300 x 300 x 250cm

Yet another product from Airwave, this one is a great canopy for a day out and party activities especially due to its open design.

This pop-up gazebo erects in 60 seconds and comes along with instructions for assistance. Erecting might need 2 people all though its much easier with 4, one at each corner but it’s incredibly fast.

There are pegs and adjustable guy ropes that allow you to firmly fix the canopy.

The package includes a carry bag which comes in handy when carrying and packing away the canopy as well as making it easy to store when not in use.

One thing we noticed about this gazebo is its delicate nature, which means it should not be left up unattended or overnight when harsh winds can cause significant damage.

You should also be keen on the ground where you erect this canopy. However, you’ll appreciate the 9 sq. meter ground space of the gazebo which is enough for outdoor leisure activities.

Negatives

  • The frame of this gazebo is somewhat flimsy making it vulnerable to outdoor elements so should only be used in calm conditions. It’s also not waterproof enough or even showerproof, It supposed to be water-resistant but this is certainly debatable.

Thoughts and Recommendation

This Airwave model is good as a sun shade, a party canopy or just relaxing outdoors.

It’s fast to erect taking literally around 1 minute and easy to take down and pack it away in its carry bag making it easy to store when not in use.

It’s one of the cheapest canopies in our review, however, it simply does not compare to our ‘Best Pick’ All Seasons Gazebo in terms of quality and water resistance.

However when you consider this model is less than half the price of our best pick it excellent value for money which is why was named it ‘Our Pick’.

If your looking for something more substantial that is made to last, perhaps a model that also offers shelter from the rain, then this model is not for you. We would advise paying the extra for our best pick model.

That being said this makes a great model to offer some shading from the sun and is perfect for the odd family get together and you won’t find a better model within the same price range.

If you don’t mind a slightly smaller model then the Airwave 2.5m x 2.5m reviewed next is fully waterproof and not much more cost but is much better quality.


4. Airwave 2.5m x 2.5m Pop Up Waterproof Gazebo

BEST SMALL WATERPROOF GAZEBO

Airwave 2.5x2.5mtr Pop Up Waterproof Gazebo review
  • Fully waterproof with seal taped seams.
  • Canopy features Anti-Pudding Eyelets to avoid gathering water.
  • Includes 4 sidewalls, two have windows, two with zipped doorways.
  • Pop Up gazebo – quick and very easy to erect. (Set up in around 60 seconds.)
  • Carry bag included for easy storage
  • Steel frame construction for added strength and stability.
  • Two wind bars for extra protection against winds.

The Airwave 2.5 x 2.5 gazebo is a great canopy for daily use. You don’t require any tool when using this tent; you should be able to erect this pop-up gazebo in literally 60 seconds. There are also user instructions that you can always take advantage of if need be.

The gazebo comes with four side panels of which two have full-length zipper doorways and the other two features church style windows. The panels are ready to attach in your desired combination giving you the complete freedom of location.

The canopy is fully waterproof due to the seal taped seams and the tough construction featuring 190g PU coated soft touch polyester fabric. The canopy is also fitted with Anti-Pudding Eyelets which prevents damage that may result from the weight of any excess water build-up. The bar is made of steel which is a great material for sturdiness and durability.

It comes with two windbars which provide greater stability against side wind impact. The box also contains 4 leg weight bags which can be filled with soil or sand to support the tent. If you are not comfortable with sand or soil, the bags can work with 2-litre drink bottles filled with water.

The gazebo comes with a carry bag which helps in transportation and storage. The manufacturer recommends that this product should be used as a temporary gear and proper care of the gazebo should be taken to avoid damage.

Negatives

  • Can be damaged by winds and shouldn’t be left out overnight, especially if a windy night is forecast.

Thoughts and Recommendation

The Airwave Gazebo is an awesome product for leisure and garden activities. It’s fast to erect, fully waterproof even in rain, unlike some models we have seen.

At well under £100 it offers excellent value for money and is very good quality overall. Really impressive but at 2.5m x 2.5m you may need to check its big enough to meet your needs.

In truth its probably on par with our ‘Best Pick’ and is cheaper but it is slightly smaller.? We also noticed that this is one of the most popular gazeboes on Amazon.co.uk with over 700 reviews.


5. Outsunny 3m x 3m Gazebo

BEAUTIFUL & VERY STUDY

Outsunny 3m x 3m Gazebo
  • Removable beautiful mesh sidewalls.
  • UV coating for protection against UV rays to ensure longevity.
  • Protection against antioxidation and excellent water resistance performance thanks to its PA coated Polyester skin.
  • Black powder-coated steel frame.
  • Elegant two tiers ventilated canopy.
  • To ensure stability includes 8 large pegs.
  • The top cover contains 8 plastic leaking holes for water drainage.
  • Reinforced corners to ensure long-term use for many years to come.
  • Manufactured from removable and washable materials.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Overall dimensions: 295 x 295 x 265cm

The Outsunny Gazebo comprises 4 elegant white mesh side walls which provide exceptional ventilation when set up to provide shade from the sun. The good news is they can be removed easily if need be.

The canopy features a UV coating that is effective at blocking harmful UV, antioxidation and ensures water resistance from the odd unexpected shower or two. To help ensure the best water resistance it also incorporates a strip on the sewing place which makes this gazebo more water-resistant.

This is one of those gazebos that look stylish with a leaf decorative design and most people will likely fall in love with it. It’s one that sparks beauty at the centre of any garden.

It has a reinforced top plus it comes with 8 pegs that make the canopy extra stable. This gazebo withstands elements when erected so you’ll have less worry in windy conditions all though it should be protected from strong winds.

The top cover also features 8 plastic leaking holes that allow water drainage in rainy weather.

There are Velcro straps that play an important part during assembly and attachment to the gazebo. The assembly process is relatively quick and easy and taking it down is no hassle.

The corners are also reinforced so they can stand many years of use on almost any surface.

The gazebo is also washable to ensure it can be kept clean and is easily washable.

Negatives

  • All though its easy to put together it doe take around 2-3 hours to build.

Thoughts and Recommendation

What we find most appealing about the Outsunny gazebo is the modern stylish design.

Like most good gazebos, it’s quick to assemble considering its not a popup model taking around 1 to 3 hours to build depending on how DIY savvy you are. If you fairly use savvy it can be erected within about an hour but most will probably be looking at around 2 hours to put together.

Its very good quality and is clearly very robust and water-resistant.

It’s somewhat smaller than you might expect, however it large enough for family gatherings, afternoon picnics, birthday parties and barbecues with a few people involved.

It is one of the most expensive gazebos in our review, however, because of its quality we feel its worth every penny and offers excellent value for money. 

A stunning gazebo would make a great focal point in the garden and offer some shelter from the sun and showers.


6. Casaria Garden Gazebo Pavilion Lorca

Casaria Garden Gazebo Pavilion Lorca

  • Water repellant cover.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Perfect for any garden and patio.
  • Stable and sturdy metal struts for extra support.
  • Ideal for garden parties and summer parties.
  • Cover material: Polyester.
  • Material structure: powder-coated metal.

At 2.70m, the Lorca gazebo has a lot of headroom even for the tallest guys. It covers a ground surface of 3x3m which we find quite spacious for most garden activities including weddings, BBQ and parties. It’s recommended for use especially in summer due to the lack of protection against bad weather. Even so, the cover is water-repellant (not waterproof) with the roof material being polyester.

The roof ventilation is something most of you will appreciate as this gazebo is designed to offer a quality shade for you and your friends under the hot summer sun. There are also disguised standing feet featuring powder coated metals for strength and stability. Along these lines, the tent is easy to assemble with assembly instructions provided by the manufacturer. All the parts are numbered except the screws so it’s quite simple to follow the process.

The design of this gazebo is admirable and there are beautiful details included in the construction. It’s the kind of outdoor gear you want as an addition to your garden or patio area. Its cream colour is also one that blends incredibly well with most outdoor settings.

  • This gazebo may be water-repellant but it’s not showerproof, which means the lightest shower will send you back in your house.

Thoughts and Recommendation

If you are looking for a good canopy for mild summer outdoor activities, this gazebo would be worth considering. Overall not a bad canopy and we really like the unique design.


7. Airwave Waterproof 3 x 6m Gazebo

BEST FOR LARGER PARTIES

Airwave Waterproof 3 x 6m Gazebo
  • Fully waterproof for shelter no matter the weather
  • Can be erected on both soft and hard surfaces.
  • 1 zippered Arabian style door.
  • 1 roll-up door.
  • All 6 sides included 4 of them full size with 3 windows per panel.
  • White powder-coated steel tubes.
  • 120g polyester with PVC coated cover for protection against the rain.
  • Plenty of space for parties – Dimensions: 3 x 6m

With a ground coverage area of 18 sq. meters, the Fox Hunter Gazebo is ideal for most outdoor activities, including camping, wedding, BBQ, parties and many more. It features 1 roll-up door and 1 zippered Arabian style door along with 6 sides, with four of them full size and there are three windows on each panel of the four sides.

This gazebo can be erected on both soft and hard surfaces, offering that kind of versatility on whatever ground. The frame features a white powder-coated steel tube with durable nylon connectors. It’s easy to erect following the numbered poles and the process needs about 6 people. It’s recommended to use sandbags or even sand buckets to tie the gazebo down properly.

One reminder is that you should be careful when handling this gazebo. The manufacturer says they won’t be responsible for buckled frames or snapped covers due to wrong assembling or assembling in the wind or rain. You also must not leave the gazebo up overnight as the manufacturer will not be liable for any damage caused overnight.

  • This is one of those tents which doesn’t like windy conditions; the frames are likely to bend in windy conditions.

Thoughts and Recommendation

The Airwave waterproof gazebo is a great tent for most garden activities. We like that It’s quite spacious giving you plenty of room and how easy it is to erect.

It also very affordable which is why it’s probably so popular on Amazon.co.uk with over 259 reviews.


8. Miadomodo Garden Pavilion Gazebo

  • A real show stopper and talking point.
  • Solid metal powered coated frame.
  • Roof material: Polyester with PA coating.
  • Arched double ventilated roof with a nostalgic appearance.
  • Easy to set up and fix to the floor with pegs or screws.
  • 100% Polyester textile material.
  • Offers protection against the rain.

The Miadomodo garden pavilion is attractive in any garden and in the meantime, it provides plenty of shade. The box comes with an instruction manual to enhance the easy assembly of this gazebo.

The pavilion is easily set up by fixing it with ground nails or screws, a job that requires 2 people.

The roof features an arched design with a nostalgic look and it’s made out of polyester with a PA coating. The coating is known for its long durability so you can be sure you’re investing in a reliable canopy.

Miadomodo constructed this gazebo out of 100% polyester material. Polyester is very durable, fast-drying, wrinkle-resistant, and resistant to stretching and shrinking and abrasion-resistant. The lacquered steel frame also supports the tent well and it’s long-lasting.

The gazebo is suitable for mild summer evenings with family and garden parties. You’ll have to choose between brown and beige colours which we think are both calm colours for evening activities.

Negatives

  • No problems to report, a little expensive but worth the cost for such as good quality gazebo.

Thoughts and Recommendation

The colours are great, the assembly is simple and the durability is top-notch. Yet, even with the weights on the legs, this gazebo might still be vulnerable to damage in high winds. We recommend it for mild weather use only, whether it’s a family relaxing outdoors or having a party.


Gazebo Buyers Guide

You are here because you are hoping to add a new gazebo to the layout of your patio but you don’t know where to begin. Figuring out what styles, sizes and materials you want are all critical in choosing what kind of gazebo is ideal for you. Here’s the guide that’ll give you a superior comprehension of what you’re searching for when choosing the perfect model for you:

How do you put up a pop up gazebo?

Watch the video below where I show you how to put up a pop-up gazebo on your own in under 3 minutes,

What do you need the gazebo for?

This is a critical question and it’s very important in determining what you’ll settle for. This question will also help you figure out where you’ll locate the gazebo. One of the following might be your answer:

  • Some people buy gazebos to increase the value of their homes.
  • Perhaps you simply need someplace outside to chill and unwind.
  • Maybe you have a wedding or reception planned.
  • Or, you have guests over to entertain and thought a gazebo will be awesome for dinner or drinks.
  • If you telecommute, you’ve imagined the breeze and the birds tweeting as you sit at your work area and work away.
  • You want to use the gazebo as your private workout space.
  • If you have children, a gazebo can be awesome and putting it in a way that you can see it from your windows inside will give you a sense of security.

Where do you plan on having it?

Without a doubt, you know you are going to erect it on a level surface. In any case, there are many alternatives to approach this:

  • Do you want to erect it on a lawn, existing patio, a solid pad, pavers, or even a wooden deck or pool?
  • Contingent upon the kind of rooftop you want, whether closed or more open, would you lean toward your gazebo to be in a sunny region or in the shade by the trees.
  • Know exactly where you want to put your gazebo and consider what activities you might give up on your lawn. In the event that you have children, then perhaps place it at the edge of the yard so despite everything they’ll have space to play.
  • Perhaps you would favour it ideal off the deck, or need it to be the point of convergence of your yard by putting in a focal range.

Know the Gazebo Features

  • Size – gazebos run in different sizes, from 7 sq. ft to rectangles and ovals more than 20 ft long. On the chance that you want covering for a little, loveseat or intimate bench, a 7 sq. ft can be sufficient. If you need something sufficiently enough to handle a dinner party swarm, you’ll definitely need something bigger. You also need to confirm that the size you want can fit easily within what remains of your lawn landscaping.
  • Shape – gazebos customarily have an octagonal shape, so in case you have a more traditionally styled and arranged home, you may opt to go with the 8-sided gazebo. On the hand, if you own a modern house, you may go for the more contemporary, angular look that’s found with a square or rectangular gazebo. There are likewise round and oval shapes that can blend more effectively with a bending walkway or flowing garden arranging.
  • Materials –the option of portable gazebos is the most reliable these days with most of them being made from polyester material. They are stand-alone gazebos that need a bit of assembly to erect and need to fold down after use. Polyethene is a great choice for canopy tents that are taken and erected for shorter periods because of its lightweight and portability. You should ensure that any cover material used near a fire is fire-retardant.
  • Roof – some roof features such as waterproofness add to the overall quality of a roof. Some models even come with roofs that protect against UV. Ideally, the better the roof is equipped, the safer you’ll stay underneath. Polyester is the most popular top material used because it’s affordable, resistant to water and durable.
  • Frame material – the frames usually come in steel or aluminium. Steel frames reduce increased amounts of rust that can cause slow damage. Aluminium frames are lightweight and perfect for portability. Aluminium is easy to flex and may not stand as tough in windy conditions.
  • Portability and assembly – the best pop-up gazebo tents with simple features are the easiest to erect and takedown. Make sure to check if the canopy can fit into your vehicle. Buying carry bags can help especially when travelling with a huge canopy tent.
  • Lightweight vs Heavy-Duty Canopies – lightweight canopies are perfect for short-term use, a day or two, while heavy-duty canopies are ideal for long periods of time and can withstand elements within their time of use. Lightweight canopies can be assembled and taken down by two to three adults and fit easily into the trunks of most vehicles. Heavy-duty canopies are usually expensive but then they last longer than lightweight canopies.
