Chimineas: Fire and light

Reviewed by:

For thousands of years, people have enjoyed gathering around nice, warm fires. This contemporary outdoor fireplace is a bit of an improvement over fire pits made of stone.

The cast aluminum chiminea is light enough to easily move around. Sold with its own cover, this chimenea can be left outdoors year round.

It can burn full-size logs, pine cones or even gel inserts (a supersized version of what caterers use to keep casseroles warm). A grill for cooking is included.

  • The Grape Style Cast Aluminum Chimenea sells for $329 (December 2005).
