Care & Usage
The Chimalin AFC range is made from reinforced clay, fired using a unique method. The end result is a clay chimenea that can withstand much higher temperatures than your everyday traditional Mexican chimenea.
However, although Chimalin AFC chimeneas are more durable, they should still be carefully looked after, just like any other clay chimenea:
Cover to protect from water, frost and UV damage.
Clean out after every few uses to maintain optimal space for hot ambient fires.
Use the firing process of starting with a small, low fire and slowly build it up to help the material acclimatize to the extreme temperatures.
