7 Best Large Chimineas

7 Best Large Chimineas

Chimineas have always been a popular way to keep warm when entertaining friends and families but if you want one for larger groups or that will produce a lot of heat then you’ll need to get yourself a large or extra-large chiminea.

To help you we’ve created this handy review to look at our favourite 7 best large chimineas.

Finding a large chiminea can be a little difficult as many companies promote their chimineas as being large or extra-large when they really aren’t that big. But what do you need to look out for when you’re looking for a large or extra-large chiminea?

What to Look for in a Large or Extra Large Chiminea

If you’re looking for a larger chiminea then you’re probably looking to heat a larger area or more people. Bearing this in mind there are two things that we suggest you look for when you’re searching for a large or extra-large chiminea.

Firstly the chimineas’ size and secondly the material the chiminea is made from.

1) The Chiminea Size

Although many chimineas names suggest they are large or extra-large you’ll actually find that many are not quite as described.

When you’re looking for a large chiminea you ideally want to buy one that is large in size and not just name. The larger the chiminea generally the larger amount of heat it will provide as it will hold a larger amount of fuel.

When looking at dimensions don’t focus too much on height but look more closely at the circumference and size of the bowl/belly part of the chiminea. The height will certainly help take the smoke away but the larger the belly of the chiminea the larger the fire that can burn within.

We’d always say that for a larger chiminea you want to have a belly that is at least 45cm or more.

2) The Material

Now you may think that surely if you have a large chiminea then it doesn’t matter what material it is made from.

Well if you are planning to have a large chiminea because you want more heat then you really should be looking at the type of chiminea that can give out more heat.

Large and extra-large chimineas will more than likely be made from cast iron or steel. This is because metal can handle higher temperatures much better than clay which can easily crack when exposed to large amounts of heat.

If you’re not sure which type of chiminea to get then keep reading. To help you choose the perfect bigger chiminea for your garden, we’ve put together a list of 7 of the best large chimineas we could find.

2) Log Barn Chiminea

Log Barn Chiminea

Although the Log Barn chiminea is slightly narrower than many others the size of the belly in height and the width of the opening is such that you really can get a fair amount of fuel in it.

Having a larger opening and a bigger belly means that you can fit more fuel in and therefore with the right fuel it will burn hotter and be able to warm a larger area.

The stylish design looks great in any garden and once lit provides a great focal point for any garden party or get together,

Made from Steel the chiminea is light allowing you to easily move it around your garden or put it into storage when not in use.

One thing you need to make sure you do is to cure this chiminea before you light it up properly. You can find out more about how to do that in our How to cure a chiminea? article. This is very important as with many steel chimineas, failure to cure it properly can lead to the paint flaking!

Its safety mesh screen prevents any sparks from flying whilst the antique bronze finish provides the perfect focal point for any patio.

The large belly of the chiminea offers plenty of space for whichever fuel you decide to use and because it’s made from durable steel, you can use coal, logs or even untreated timber to keep you warm in the evenings.

Other great benefits of this Dellonda chiminea are that it’s made from durable steel, so although it can handle a lot of heat, it can also be easily moved from one place in your garden to another.
