Azteca in bluey grey – A classic Mexican design
This large, good-looking and totally practical Mexican chiminea is actually made in Mexico, the ancestral home of the chim. It features a cool Aztec design and a rustic grey painted finish, which fades eventually with the heat to create a lovely, subtle patina. The design is all about burning fuel efficiently, and it leaves barely any ashes behind. But you don’t need to set a big blaze. It’s actually best not to. A small fire is quite enough to super-heat the clay body and set it off radiating warmth just like an outdoor radiator.
There’s no assembly – just unpack her, sit her on the stand provided, add a little heap of sand or gravel to the body to help protect it from the heat, and you’re ready to rock ‘n’ roll. You can even cook on it, using one of our brilliantly simple chiminea cooking crowns. Wood is the ideal fuel for this one, creating a magical blaze that warms the surroundings surprisingly effectively, enough to keep on partying even though it’s all dark and chilly.
