What you need to know about Clay Chimineas
Firstly a Clay Chiminea must be made in Mexico, but not just anywhere in Mexico as they must be made from the correct blend of volcanic clays,which come from one small region in Central Mexico and secondly they must be fired properly. Unfortunately many of the Mexican chimineas are of very poor quality so you need to be careful!
To identify a good quality Mexican Chiminea from a poor quality one simply read the instructions. POOR QUALITY Chimineas require curing i.e. they will tell you to light several small fires, building the heat up gradually over several occasions to begin with and they may also tell you to cover them out in the rain. Either of these instructions are WARNING BELLS that a Chiminea has not been made or fired properly and are therefore less durable and prone to cracking.
We only sell premium quality Chimineas that are made properly from the correct clay. None of our Chimineas require curing and it is fine to leave them outside in the rain. NO RAINCOATS REQUIRED!
Do not be fooled by price alone when looking at Chimineas.With the increasing popularity of Chimineas there are a lot of inferior quality copies being made in both Mexico and Asia. Please benefit from our specialist advise & expertise.
"The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after price is forgotton!"
