Top customer reviews
I really like the forethought on the design. The three legs are hefty, and are very steady. It came with a flew/chimney cap, to keep the rain out when not in use. It also came with a spark arrester screen witch fits in the top flew. It has a large sliding "door" to load wood, and holds full size split logs. The grate has large holes so as not to get plugged up. And the ash tray is good to have. It weighs about eighty pounds, so I suggest you build it where you want it to be.
I've seen smaller ones twice the price of this one, and one's the same size, three and four times the cost. this is a great deal.
There are 2 downsides that I've encountered with this unit:
1. The mesh screen that surrounds it to keep embers from popping out. It's a bit thin and is easily crushed while assembling.
2. The grate at the bottom that tou set the wood on has nothing tp hold it in place and is easily knocked askew. I'm worried this may make pieces of wood fall through to the bottom.
I haven't had a fire in this yet, but will update my review after I do!
Performance is good. I generally begin with a Duraflame log at the start of the evening and add a log at a time (Home Depot stock) as the night progresses. I like the 360 degree visibility but it does mean that there can be a problem with smoke coming right out of the firebox if you have a moderate (2-4 mph) breeze. Everybody has to scoot around to the up-wind side of the chimenea. Only in really calm conditions does the smoke go straight up the chimney.
Overall, I definitely like and recommend this chimenea, just watch where you place it if you have a steady prevailing wind to deal with. You might find it worth experimenting with a piece of kitchen aluminum foil wrapped part way around the mesh screen.
It's cast iron and steel, it WILL rust, period.
The structural integrity is pretty good. My wife is piro and has tried to destroy this thing every time she uses it.
We had the chimenea for two years and have had 50-75 fires it's stored on the patio 1500 feet from the ocean. It's been coved by a American classics cover when not in use ( only cover for grills and outdoor equipment, will only buy their products, they perform very good but when they fail they stand behind their products)
The grates will get SO hot that they bend like potatoes chips from their own weight. So we flip them over every other use. The last fire and my super human strength broke one of the grill. No worries for the wife, maybe she can fuse them back together if she feeds it enough wood.
Looking into replacements, maybe I will fabricate my own. I think we will get one more season out of the grill before we scrap it, not worth sandblasting and conditioning since a new one is less than $150.
