With a great range of styles, colours and sizes, chimineas are a must-have in any garden. Cast iron chimineas remain one of the most popular types of chiminea for good reason. They offer many advantages over their clay counterparts:
Cast iron chimineas are low maintenance
You can burn wood, charcoal and coal in a cast iron chiminea
High temperatures can be reached without risk of the chiminea cracking
Cast iron chimineas burn hotter for longer
You don’t need to store away cast iron chimineas in winter – but a cover will help maintain the condition without the need for requent resealing
They can still be used even when wet – so rain won’t dampen your plans
What do you put in the bottom of a cast iron chiminea?
You don’t need to put anything in the bottom of a cast iron chiminea. It’s recommended that you put sand in the bottom of clay chimineas to prevent the bottom of the bowl from overheating and cracking, but this isn’t a problem with cast iron.
Can I use a cast iron chiminea in winter?
Yes – the cast iron material makes your chiminea completely frost proof. This means it’s safe to leave outdoors in the wind, rain and snow. The internal fire grate also means that wood, coal and charcoal can be burned inside no matter the weather.
