Great things All the parts were there (some extras!) and assembly was straightforward (helps to have three arms). The fire cage is bigger than our last one (from Lowes) so we can use bigger and weird shaped fuel. Not great things Some of the drilled holes did not line up well, so bolts were hard to get in. The hole for the tool-hanger is drilled in the wrong spot and won't hold the tool. All-in-all, a great addition to our patio.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Item was well packaged with all screws accounted for. I used 2 cans of high temp BBQ paint and applied 2 coats after separating the pieces. It's heavy, so take the pieces out of the box while it's still in your trunk - your back will thank you. I got rolling casters so I could move it around my patio (see photo). They are $6 apiece at Northern Tool. Assembly was a breeze.
Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish

Review 3 for 54 in. Cast Iron Chiminea
This functional chiminea has fantastic visual appeal and durability. Perfect size & construction!
The larger diameter of this chiminea is a must in searching for a functional chiminea. It is jut the right size. Other products featured only a 15 or 18 in barrel, which is not large enough to fit a log in! The construction is very sturdy and durable. Serves its purpose perfectly, especially for the price in comparing to others much smaller!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, High Quality of Material, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great, Looks High End, Good Size & Weight

Perfect for making s'mores and relaxing southern style!
My daughter bought me this chiminea 9 yrs ago! It has been our favorite feature of all. As another reviewer stated, mine is also still going strong with some rust, completely expected, as this one has also been in the same location on the patio, uncovered and fully exposed to weather the entire 9 years. It does seem to be nearing the end of its lifespan, but I am absolutely going to purchase another one just like it!
Used year round, often several times a week, and for hours at a time for many of those uses, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time on the patio thanks to this chiminea. The height of the fire is perfect for our patio chairs circled around it. We've even grilled hot dogs on the small grate at the top of the chimney often. Many marshmallows have been roasted in the fire through the screen opening. This sliding screen gate is now showing it's age, and doesn't slide as smoothly, sometimes slipping off it's track on one side, we just use the hook that came with to put it back in place.
The first thing to go was the ash collection pan underneath, which was no problem for us, we simply substited with a two-handled pan underneath which has served the purpose very well. Had I kept the chiminea covered, I have a feeling the catch pan would have lasted much longer, as well as the rest of the chimnea. Rust is now taking its toll on the vertical and circular metal support bands as well as the screen, which has me worried about how much longer it will last now, but it is still standing strong and stable for the time being.
I would strongly recommend this purchase to anyone who would like to have a fire burning on their patio. The price is a great value for the countless hours of enjoyment, which I would call priceless!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, High Quality of Material, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great
The item was back ordered but HD kept me informed as to availability and it arrived right on time as stated. I assembled it and we tried it out first cool evening. It was great to watch the fire and feel the warmth from the embers. I only used five pieces of split wood all evening from 7pm until 10:30 pm. In the morning there was nothing left but ashes in the pan. My wife and I love it, and looking forward to more evenings under the stars with the fire roasting our toes.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I bought this product for $99 and it has lasted me 16 years! Last weekend was a sad weekend because after 16 years and 2 cross country moves, I finally put mine out to pasture and moved it the LAST time out to my sister's farm where it will be long after I'm dead and buried. She was good to me and I have many cherished memories with my friends and family because of her. I kept it covered for the first 7 years and painted it occasionally when rust appeared. Then, I got lazy and stopped covering it the last 10 years and left it in the weather. I recommend this product by BerkleyForge.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Stylish, Nice Design
I got this chiminea for an anniversary gift. I found it online, bought it from my local store, brought it home, assembled it and had a fire going by the time my husband got home from work! I'm a 60-years young smallish woman so I had to take it out a few pieces at a time from the box in my car. Instructions were clear enough -- you can really only put it together one way -- and it's heavy duty, very sturdy and seems like it will last a long time. With the larger than average size it can easily accommodate the logs I use for indoors. One design feature I really like is the door which slides on a bar to the side and out of the way rather than opening on a hinge.
I am very happy with this product and will buy another one for my son's new home!
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, makes a good fire
Off to buy number 2 after 10years. So happy they still sell this model. We use it year round almost every weekend for 10 years. It sits unprotected throughout the New Hampshire winters. The ash tray did rust but we were able to fix it last year. Unfortunately a large tree landed on it during the last storm and destroyed the bottom pan and legs. I love it because we can all sit around it and enjoy the heat. It is elevated just enough so it really throws the heat perfectly. Solid cast iron construction that looks great and offered at a great price. We were very very happy with this product.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight
This is the second one I have owned(left the first one at house I sold).The chimenea is very enjoyable to sit around. I built a dolly on wheels so I can roll around to where I want to use it. It is very durable except for the grate & ash pan. It would be nice if you could purchase these spare parts, since they are the only things that wear out.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use
Cons: need to be able to buy spare ash pan & grate
This chiminea has held up remarkably well to weekly use on a year-round basis. The structure is intact, sturdy. I kept it covered due to the rains and humidity of SW Florida. Some discoloration may occur, but still looks fine. If the ash pan should begin to rust out, you can make a new one, improvise with a metal pizza pan or bucket, or look for a Yukon replacement ash pan which fits nicely.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Nice Design
Cons: some parts may rust with use

Review 12 for 54 in. Cast Iron Chiminea
Beautiful Addition to Our Patio, Just Takes Long to Assemble
My husband spent about 2 hours assembling this, which was a lot longer then we were expecting. In the end it worked perfectly and we're very happy we bought it. It was about 25 F last night and we were still pretty warmed up by this thing.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Fairly easy to assemble (if you have small, strong hands!). The mesh section was slightly misshaped (from transit, I think), so put the entire product sans last chimney section, screen & cover together. After everything was in place and could be adjusted; tightened all the nuts. Used a deep socket, for assembly. I can't imagine trying to do the job with an adjustable wrench.
Chimney draws well, if preheated (newspaper crumpled in chimney, fire lighted and newspaper lighted). If fire is not centered, there can be considerable smoke thru the mesh, unlike a traditional chiminea. However, that slight non-positive element is overwhelmed by being able to enjoy the fire 360 degrees.
We have ours covered with a tarp for inclement weather. Hopefully extending the life of the chiminea. Ashes can be brushed into the ash pan (after lifting out the grate) then emptying the ash pan is easy.
All in all a good product, will update review if my opinion changes.

Nearing the 7yr anniversary of this cast iron chiminea. It has remained uncovered on my patio the entire time. I feel it has provided a great return on investment for the countless hrs of enjoyment it has provided. It was used pretty much used yr-round often multiple times a week. After almost 7 yrs the rust is taking its toll on some of the features which is normal... And all things considered, I'm not upset in the least. The fire bowl, legs and chimney stack are still intact and solid. The only thing that's showing it's age are the cast iron diamond mesh screen and the pull out out tray used to clean the ashes. The pull-out tray went first, but considering it was uncovered water would often keep this area wet more than any other area, so it was to be expected. I plan to purchase another one today and will keep it covered moving forward.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great
It was easy to put together but you did need an extra person to hold parts in place while you put the screws in. I did not realize that the smoke would come out all sides. This is my first chiminea purchase and picked this one because of the size the design . It does work well and enjoy the warmed with a cup of cappuccino in the afternoon after work.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Ordered online and picked up in-store about a month ago. My husband and I assembled easily and have very much enjoyed our new chiminea. We have it out at the water's edge and are very satisfied so far. Great heat with smoke rising out of the chimney overhead. A nice addition to our beautiful lagoon property. Great buy for the price!!
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Stylish, Nice Design
Easy to assemble, have owned for over a year and will be buying as a gift for someone else. My only issue is I'm not a fan of how short the poker is that comes with the chimnea, but the chimnea is otherwise perfect.
Very easy to assemble; however the box is quite heavy. Be prepared to have someone help lift or expect to take the peices out of the box to move the package.
