Chiminea Safety

Top tips when you're out and about

Chiminea Safety

There’s no better way to prolong your time outside than by firing up the chiminea!

Don’t leave the lid on

Always remember to take the lid off when making a fire, it sounds obvious but is easily forgotten! Leaving the lid on can be very dangerous as the pressure from the flames could cause your chiminea to explode.

Keep away from anything flammable

Make sure that you do not put a chiminea directly on to wooden decking. It’s always best to place something underneath such as a slab of concrete or stone.

Equally, do not use your chiminea inside and make sure that there are no overhanging trees above the chiminea, as all of these factors are a fire risk.

Remember they’re fragile

Traditional clay chimineas are prone to cracks and are easily broken. A way to avoid this is by lining the base of yours with a thin layer of sand- this will prevent the hottest part of the fire from coming into direct contact with the clay.
