For a start it is virtually indestructible, made from cast iron it is cast in a unique way, in one solid piece, there are no moving parts, no air vents are required, no grates either, due to its clever design it draws perfectly giving a very efficient clean burn and as such has very little smoke and minimal ash. You will only need to clean out the ash approx every 3-5 yrs. All the ash burns away to nothing on the bed of sand leaving no mess and no hassle, no maintenance! Ideal as an outdoor fireplaces/patio heater.
The Aussie Heatwave is totally Pyromaniac Proof, adolescent kids & party proof and completely worry free.

They won't continue to rust, the surface naturally gets a protective coating and they will turn a dark brownish colour/ patina similar to that of an old cast iron canon or a bollard at a pier that ships tie up to. Released in 2000 the Australian Made Aussie Heatwave is a cast iron Chiminea that is much hotter than clay chimineas, won't crack or break and comes with a twenty year guarantee but will last for generations!

we bought one of your chimineas at the Flower
Show last week and it was delivered yesterday. We fired it up for the first time
last night and it was INCREDIBLE! We bought the value pack, and cooked pizza and
berkshire pork sausages for us and the neighbours in the pizza oven. The food
was fantastic, better than our very good italian pizza delivery on our first go!
No more delivery for us! Only issue we have is that our back veranda is going to
be the neighbourhood hub now with everyone sitting around our chiminea, drinking
red and eating pizza. Thanks so much, it's everything you said it would be and
MORE! Thx Louise Scanlan 4/2014
Hi Liz and Andrew,
Just a quick note to let you know Caledonian Transport were terrific, and our chiminea is up and running. Despite the rain and mist, we decided to stoke it up the Friday night it arrived, and cannot believe how much we love it!
It burned away merrily for hours while we sat around it with wine and nibbles. Just couldn't bring ourselves to go indoors. No spitting, no guzzling wood, just steady, beautiful heat - so tranquil and relaxing on a Friday night. If everyone owned one of these there would be no such thing as high blood pressure! Aesthetically very appealing and so practical, I think it is going to get an awful lot of use. Thanks for such a great product. Love, love, love it!

Hello,Last Sunday I bought one of your Aussie Heatwave chimineas after finding you on the web. I didn’t really know what I was looking at, I just wanted something warm and fun for Canberra winter evenings outside. So I just took the risk and it sure has paid off. The Aussie heatwave is a beautiful looking fireplace and once the coals have settled it really cranks out the heat. I couldn’t resist firing it up the night it arrived. My thermometer read 2 degrees outside and it was raining. One meter away from the chiminea the thermometer read 9 degrees. With a jumper on and an umbrella we had a fun time sitting around eating our soup for dinner. We are going to get a lot of use out of our chiminea, we love it!
Thanks heaps,Steve Webber

Hi Liz, Got the BBQ, Thank you so much!!
The BBQ worked fantastic!! It has been raining here, but we were so excited to try it before the weekend. We cooked some gourmet sausages, and it cooks so quick!!
We started with come Continetial and Mexican Sausages first, then 3 fabalous Pizzas, being a plain with olives, a Mexican, and the last one a my Super Special Mexican!! Food tasted fantastic!
I am using Redgum Firewood, which is not what you prefer, but me being The Wood Bloke and it is what I sell. You are right in saying it is a slow burner as I had to make sure the sizes were smaller than normal, and the wood had to be very, very dry.
Kind Regards, Manny Schembri

Congratulations on such an Awesome Product! I saw you at the Melbourne Garden Show cooking Pizza's and roast lamb and I was so impressed I decided to buy one. I had clay chiminea a few years ago that fell apart and I was really impressed with your new Aussie Cast Iron one. It's way better than the old clay and the BBQ is awesome!
Hugh Fisher, Waterview Heights, NSW
Dear Andrew and staff, My cast iron chiminea was delivered after Xmas, and I'm thoroughly stoked! So far, I've cooked steak twice and roasted a large chicken. Plenty of wood here, so the gas BBQ is now obsolete. After cooking and eating, everyone sits around the fire talking whilst enjoying the spectacle. This is in a sub tropical zone, so we're not doing it to keep warm. You can't do any of this with gas.
Thank you again for a great product delivered promptly. It's something that works as well as the advertising claims. I wish you a prosperous 2009, and may your company's fortunes go against the recessionary trend.
Best regards ................. Hugh Fisher

This has to be one of the best heat and food cooking inventions ever made.
I bought one. Stuck it on the apartment balcony, fired it up, and loved it.
Melbourne's Andrew Fenton imported Chimineas from Mexico and started a good business. But then he thought laterally. If Mexican clay could make a good Chiminea then what if you made one from Aussie cast iron? In one piece? Imagine the heat? Imagine the longevity?
And that's what they did. And now I have bought one of them. They have a twenty year guarantee. For good reason. They are virtually indestructible.
And they€ve improved on the original Mexican version and made the Aussie cast iron one I now have which a has an optional BBQ attachment that sit on top of the chimney and a metal cover if you want to roast a smoked chicken. Which I now often do on Saturday nights. In fact I am roasting a marinated one as I write this.
The Chiminea throws amazing winter heat. And gives you a great smokey charcoal taste for pizzas and steaks and lamb chops -- and roast chickens basted in soy sauce and stock and hoisin and honey.
Burkes's Backyard - Website Link showing Thermal Imaging Camera test results showing Chimineas to be the most effective outdoor heater, both for heat and running costs. This test was independantly conducted on the clay prior to us having the cast iron so you need to keep in mind that the cast iron Aussie Heatwave will produce a lot more radiant heat .
I turned 30 a couple of months ago, and instead of spending a heap of money on a big party, my wife and I decided to purchase one of your Aussie Heatwaves. I thought this would be something that we could use with friends and family, and something that would probably outlast me!
So far I have not been disappointed at all! When the heatwave was delivered, I was busting to fire it up straight away but I had to wait for the weather to dry up, and also someone to help me move it around the backyard! We ended up rolling it on an offroad skateboard as there was no way we were carrying it that far!
We've been using it constantly since getting it in the right spot, and I can tell you that the family loves it. We've cooked sausages, steaks, pizzas, chicken, baked potatoes and bananas with chocolate and they have all been fantastic. We had chicken on it a couple of nights ago, and I was amazed at how the chicken cooked without drying out at all. You have to manage the fire to get the right heat and not frazzle everything, but once you do it's fantastic.
It's just gone spring in Ballarat and we are getting some milder evenings, but even in winter it's enough heat to sit outside on a cold night, and it's a great social event. The kids absolutely love going out to light the chiminea and want to use it nearly every night. I have it sitting outside our back window, and so last Saturday I sat outside with the heatwave fired up, watching the mighty magpies beat Adelaide through the window, it doesn't get any better.
Anyway I'm rambling on a bit, but I wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the heatwave and if people want a chiminea I'd thoroughly recommend to get this one!

We had to write and tell you how great our Aussie Heatwave is . I've enclosed a photo of it sitting on our decking looking fabulous. We entertain a lot at home and it's been fantastic. My husband's been cooking up a storm on the BBQ and the food cooked on it so tasty.!
Rob McQuade, Paddington, NSW
Dear Andrew & Liz, Just wanted to write to say how much we are enjoying the Chiminea we purchased from you recently.
We have it pride of place in our garden in Canberra and it's been terrific, perfect for our climate.
We have used it at least once a week and it looks great in our garden - really lovely on those autumn afternoons and evenings. Everyone who visits us loves it - particularly when we cook on it. Pizzas, roasts, seafood and BBQ's, a great way to get out of the kitchen!
Delivery went without a hitch, so thanks so much for organising that for us, excellent service all round.
