To the title of of this product says deluxe and it truly is. I purchased this chiminea for use on our deck; we have a hot tub built-in to the deck and wanted something to add to the whole experience. We had looked at the clay chimineas and other outdoor firepit products but ended up deciding on this for several reasons:
1. looks. it has a nice finish too it and if maintained (cleaned occasionally) it looks good
2. height. it needed to be at least 24 inches off the deck so it didn't heat up the decking too much
3. 360 degree flame exposure. This allows us to put it in the center of the circle. We had some firends who had a traditional chiminea and that only had one opening so half the circle would see the flame.
This product met all 3 of those requirements and was up and running in no time.
Overall, the product has been great. Hinges are good quality, weighting is sufficient (so it doesn't blow over) and it is super easy to clean. If you are looking for this style of chiminea then I would suggest that this is a good bargain.

Review 2 for Deluxe Aluminum Fireplace / Chiminea with Wrought Iron Stand and Fire Screen

Great Price but not worth it

No, I do not recommend this product.
I purchased this pit about two years ago, and have been disappointed. First it came dented and warped, not a big deal cause it was easy to fix. Burt since then, I've only used it a dozen or so times and a whole burned through the bottom and everything rusted. Also everything on it gets so mis-shaped and has become an eye soar. I only still have it so that I can burn twigs and leaves that I don't want to haul to the dump. So all in all I'd say pay a little extra and pick another one.

Arrived within a couple days of ordering! Love the HD shipping!!
I have used this fire pit twice now and enjoyed it very much both times.
Pros:
It is so lightweight I can keep it off to the side of my backyard most of the time and pull it out myself when I want it. (I'm not into lifting heavy things)
Holds a moderate amount of wood, enough for a small gathering.
Very Good looking and the 360 view provides light and heat for everyone all around it.
Cools off quickly--very nice feature--
Cons:
There is no cover made to fit it, that I can find, and one will be necessary to keep it looking good over time.
The door is useless once you get a fire going, due to heat, so you end up feeding the fire through th top. Works, but you have to be extra careful.
Out of the box base is a little unlevel--had to bend the legs to get the base to sit level.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Things you need to know before buying.
You will need sand to put in the bottom. Without it I believe the bottom would over heat. They recommend sand in the instructions. Also they don,t recommend that you burn in it for more than two hours at a time. Remember it is aluminum.
Found that a coleman round grill cover fit it great.
Good product but not if you like really hot fires.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I was excited to finally purchase a firepit. However, when we received it, it was damaged and the screen would not sit level. Also, the very top inside metal circle had an unfinished edge with sharp metal shards that could easy cut you. We have returned the firepit and now are in search of another one.
