Kingfisher CHIM1A Powder Coated Steel Chiminea
Kingfisher CHIM1A Review
This cheap chiminea is made from a black powder coated steel frame with a bronze colour finish. Completely redesigned for 2017 – now with a mesh guard, sliding door, free cooking grill as well as a handy chimney lid to prevent rain ingress and poker for the BBQ.
While it’s lacking in style and will probably rust after a few months, you can’t really expect a premium quality product when you’re spending less than £50! Considering it comes with free shipping, the vendors are probably paying £10 just to deliver it to you 😉
If you’re looking for a cheap no-frills chiminea to keep you warm this season? The Kingfisher CHIM1A might be just what you’re after.
It comes flat-packed so expect a little bit of assembly upon arrival. We highly recommend purchasing a rain cover to extend the life of this chiminea, as you’ll struggle to get more than a single season out of it if you don’t!
We recommend this chiminea for casual users who wants to see if a chiminea is for them. It won’t last particularly long but at the price, you can’t complain.

Let’s be honest, it not the most awe inspiring design you’ve ever seen but once again, you’re paying for a budget product and that’s exactly what you get.back to menu ↑
An affordable and versatile first chiminea that comes with a few extras. It won't last particularly long and we wouldn't expect it to at this price.
- It's Cheap
- Can be Used as a Patio Heater or BBQ
- Comes with Grill, Lid & Poker
- Prone to Rusting
- The Open-Mesh Design isn't Particularly Heat Efficient
- Probably Won't Last Longer Than a Year
Great as a first chiminea but don’t expect it to last particularly long. You can use it as a BBQ as well but the open-mesh design means you’ll be losing a lot of heat and the fuel will burn faster than with traditional chimineas.
It’s a steal at £40-45 but we don’t think it’s worth more than that. Use our price tracker below to keep an eye on the price if it’s too high!back to menu ↑
