Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BroMark Tri-Dollies at Home Depot
Outstanding bang for the buck. I agree with all the good reviews. Retired auto technician cannot believe this sells so inexpensively. Liked the idea of the tri-dollies from Northern Tool for six bucks a piece, but could not find them. Here are good ones for a few dollars more from Home Depot, with the part numbers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poppa GREAT PRODUCT
Great item to get the grandkids to come over for smores and fun! Easy assembly, nice price, purposeful & enjoyable.
I cut out a 32" plywood round, and then cut the center out. Added 3 Harbor Freight 2" blue rubber casters directly under where the legs would sit. Fastened the legs above the casters with a 1/2" metal conduit clamp.
We have a 1/2 covered aggregate patio. This set-up allows me easily move the fireplace where ever we want it, and back to the covered area. (These casters do function perfectly). See pics.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaraBE Good product for backyards with beers
All the parts were there (some extras!) and assembly was straightforward (helps to have three arms). The fire cage is bigger than our last one (from Lowes) so we can use bigger and weird shaped fuel.
Not great things
Some of the drilled holes did not line up well, so bolts were hard to get in. The hole for the tool-hanger is drilled in the wrong spot and won't hold the tool.
All-in-all, a great addition to our patio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phreedom33 This functional chiminea has fantastic visual appeal and durability. Perfect size & construction!
The larger diameter of this chiminea is a must in searching for a functional chiminea. It is jut the right size. Other products featured only a 15 or 18 in barrel, which is not large enough to fit a log in! The construction is very sturdy and durable. Serves its purpose perfectly, especially for the price in comparing to others much smaller!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmcknight Get it rolling
Item was well packaged with all screws accounted for. I used 2 cans of high temp BBQ paint and applied 2 coats after separating the pieces. It's heavy, so take the pieces out of the box while it's still in your trunk - your back will thank you. I got rolling casters so I could move it around my patio (see photo). They are $6 apiece at Northern Tool. Assembly was a breeze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moonwell Best purchase from the past decade!
My daughter bought me this chiminea 9 yrs ago! It has been our favorite feature of all. As another reviewer stated, mine is also still going strong with some rust, completely expected, as this one has also been in the same location on the patio, uncovered and fully exposed to weather the entire 9 years. It does seem to be nearing the end of its lifespan, but I am absolutely going to purchase another one just like it!
Used year round, often several times a week, and for hours at a time for many of those uses, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time on the patio thanks to this chiminea. The height of the fire is perfect for our patio chairs circled around it. We've even grilled hot dogs on the small grate at the top of the chimney often. Many marshmallows have been roasted in the fire through the screen opening. This sliding screen gate is now showing it's age, and doesn't slide as smoothly, sometimes slipping off it's track on one side, we just use the hook that came with to put it back in place.
The first thing to go was the ash collection pan underneath, which was no problem for us, we simply substited with a two-handled pan underneath which has served the purpose very well. Had I kept the chiminea covered, I have a feeling the catch pan would have lasted much longer, as well as the rest of the chimnea. Rust is now taking its toll on the vertical and circular metal support bands as well as the screen, which has me worried about how much longer it will last now, but it is still standing strong and stable for the time being.
I would strongly recommend this purchase to anyone who would like to have a fire burning on their patio. The price is a great value for the countless hours of enjoyment, which I would call priceless!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyBravo2015 Looks Gorgeous!!
Would give it 5 stars if it were EASIER to build. RECOMMEND having a second person with smaller hands help you because some angles are tricky and tight. RECOMMEND using a 10mm ratchet for tightening. ORGANIZE All the nuts, washers, bolts before building, it will make your life easier. Took a while to built but end result is WORTH IT.
