- chimineas are ace
Avoid the terracotta ones, they fracture in the winter.
Not just in the winter. Mine has a couple of cracks after only being used 4 times since I bought it last month and I followed the instructions exactly re ‘curing’ and putting sand in the bottom. Might try for a replacement/refund.
But yes, they are ace as long as it’s not windy!Posted 4 years agobigGMember
Yes, they are. This is our cast iron one in full blast furnace mode. It’s a great bit of is.

where d’ya get it.* I’d rather not quite that tall, looking at a 70 pound one by Oxford BBQ at the moment.
Anyone got one with the BBQ grill? something you use or pointless distraction? Its removeable which appeals.

I like the look of this one – dunno if it’s any good.

@grum, cast iron one here too…think we just got it at B&Q. Nothing special. Fantastic at chucking out heat with a group of people sat outside on a coolish evening. I, erm, do have a ready supply of fuel though. Off cuts of parquet throw out great heat. (If you’re getting it done, make sure your guy puts the off cuts in a fresh bag for you.)Posted 4 years ago
Heard a crash in the garden 1/2 hour ago and found my (less than a month old) chimnea like this. Surprisingly small amount of pieces for something that was 4ft high! Moral of the story is never leave a parasol up, even in a light breeze 😥
Shopping trip for a cast iron one tomorrowPosted 4 years ago
Advice please re replacement.
Not much in it size or price wise and I quite like the idea of the steel ones chimney being removable to give extra bbq space but it would appear that it is very prone to rust due to advice to take it indoors.
Anyone tried either of these?Posted 4 years agoannebrSubscriber
They’ve got cheaper ones in WilkinsonsPosted 4 years ago
