What type of fuel can be used with chimeneas?
Chimeneas made from Chimalin AFC can burn any type of fuel; wood, charcoal or coal. Wet wood creates a lot of smoke so we recommend using seasoned or kiln dried wood.
Chimeneas can also be used to burn garden refuse such as leaves or branches or paper.
Does a larger fire mean more warmth?
No, in fact a large fire is not necessary at all; one or two logs is sufficient. Clay chimeneas are like outdoor radiators, the clay is heated by the fire and gentle warmth will radiate outwards.
Can I cook on a chimenea?
Yes! The belly acts like an oven, so barbecuing or cooking a pizza is quick and easy. Specifically designed pots to fit into the funnel, grills and long handled pans and tools are all available here.
Do I need a cover for my chimenea?
A weatherproof cover is recommended. This will keep your chimenea dry and protected from wind driven dirt and insects, plus a cover will reduce the likelihood of frost damage. We recommend making sure that the chimenea is dry (and cool!) before fitting your cover. A cover for this chimenea can be selected as an optional extra above.
The alternative is to bring your chimenea inside during colder periods.
How do you light a chimenea?
A chimenea should be started with the lid removed for better air flow.
Start the fire with balled newspaper, dry kindling or ocote sticks first but never use petrol or spirit based lighting fuels.
Allow the fire to build gradually by slowly introducing one or two logs.
