What is a Chimenea and what are they used for?

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!

Décor

If you take pride, care and attention in the appearance of your garden or outdoor space there are great range of chimeneas to suit all different looks, themes and surroundings.

Heat

We all know that we do not get the hottest weather in the UK. To enjoy even the more sunny summer evenings we find ourselves putting on a cardigan or even better a beer jacket. A chimenea will provide the heat that you need to enjoy your garden or outdoor space long into the night.

Cooking / BBQs

Not only will chimeneas keep you and those around you warm, you can cook/grill/BBQ food to keep up your stamina.

Entertaining

You might be an early morning raver or prefer a small gathering, either way you do not want your guests getting cold. Perfect for garden parties, wedding receptions, gatherings on the patio or decking and even smokers corner.

They look incredible and can be a real conversation piece.

Destroying waste

Burn your dried garden waste or even documents you may have shredded. Making a big fire and burning stuff is way more fun than shredding. As long as you do it safely, of course.

For fun

Some people like to make fires. No idea why, but they do. We’re not here to judge.

With a chimenea you get the best of every world. You get to make fire, keep warm with friends, eat flame grilled food all while your garden or outdoor space looks great!

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.
