Chimineas: City Fires

Reviewed by:

Chimineas, Spanish-style outdoor fireplaces, can be off-limits to urban dwellers without ready access to a wood pile. But this version burns gas, rather than logs.

"The Venetian" Chiminea can be outfitted for propane or natural gas and comes with seven ceramic logs. Made with non-rusting cast aluminum alloy, it won't stain your deck or patio and will never rust. The hinged door is screened and the neck has a spark arrester so you don't set fire to your neighbor's deck.

A cast-iron grill (pictured) is included for backyard barbeques. A free cover is included with this fireplace.

  • The Venetian Chiminea sells for $539 (December 2005).
