What is a Chimenea?

Traditionally chimeneas were used indoors as a multifunctional stove. They create warmth for the home and a vessel to cook in.

Nowadays chimeneas are more suitable for outdoor use; build a fire for warmth and radiant heat; cooking food for a great BBQ experience. However, chimeneas aren’t just used for practical purposes these days, they’re also used as decorative outdoor features, and they look incredible!

Should I buy clay, cast iron or steel?

It really depends, most people buy a model based on what they think will look nest in their garden. They all serve the same purpose, so you won’t lose out on functionality- whether it be for decor, heat and/or cooking.

However, there are trade-offs to be made, depending on which material chimenea you go for.

So to make your life easier for you, we have put together a complete guide on the differences between Clay, Steel & Cast-Iron chimeneas.

A bit of Chimenea history

The chimenea, which can also be spelled chiminea, can be traced back in history for over 400 years.

Traditionally used as a freestanding fireplace, loaded from the front to create heat and cook food. Chimeneas are known to be aesthetically pleasing, but this was no accident.

The bulbous body, and chimney are designed to create a draughting action that feeds the flames and removes the fumes/smoke effectively. They are designed to burn fuel quickly, creating a clean flame and leaving very little ash behind. Traditionally clay was the material of choice as it was readily available.

In today’s consumer market, in which a chimenea might be seen as a luxury rather than a necessity, they are available in alternative materials, such as steel and cast iron.
