Fire pit Cut into Paver Patio (in Michigan)

I am having a stamped concrete fire pit patio installed in my backyard. What is the potential downside(s) of having the fire pit hole cut into the concrete? Will it be okay over time? Will the concrete crack?, etc?
Thank you!

It will be fine over time IF you have them do it correct. It needs to be lined with firebrick if you want it to last a long time:

I'd install a drain so you can wash out the remains. This fascination about fire pits harkens back to my youth when Uncle Bob had one. He didn't have the drain and it didn't end well.
"It tastes like chicken", he'd say.
I miss. Uncle Bob.
