Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol LOVE THIS CHIMINEA
This is our third such chiminea. We love having a fire almost every night (except hot summer). This chiminea allows for 360 degree viewing, with the top on, the heat radiates outward, creating a nice warmth, the mesh adds safety from shooting sparks, it elevates the fire to eye level when seated; just can't say enough good stuff about it. We've had three because all fire pit configurations, for the great amount of time we burn, will fatigue...with that said, we then re-use the top section as a pedestal to hold plants as with the bottom pan, it becomes a planter as well. It's a win-win all round.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jam889 Solid, functional, looks great!
This thing is solid!! Very sturdy once assembled and looks great. Was a bit difficult to assemble, all of the nuts are metric and I didnt have a metric socket set handy, but once I got everything tightened up, it seems to be holding together very well!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hendy Disaster purchase
Its cute but it came with a damaged piece and completely missing 2 different parts. Home Depot was apparently not able to ship replacement parts nor would they send a new chimnea which is what most other companies would do. So now we've had to return it - without refund until the warehouse receives it, then reorder it completely should we want the same chimnea, and not necessarily at the same sale price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marc237 Great Product
Don't believe all the posts about how difficult this is to assemble. My wife and I separated the parts and in about 45 minutes we had it all together. No issues at all. I can't say anything about rusting just yet but we've enjoyed half a dozen fires so far and it looks and works great! A+++ highly recommend this chiminea.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jw11 nice quality for the price!
I was surprised by the weight of the fireplace and found it easy to assemble. It's very sturdy and nice looking. The fire poker is too short but nice to open and close the sliding door. I also purchased the cover, it seems to be good quality and is a nice fit. So far so happy!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CardsFan1111 Good Value in a Chiminea
Purchased this to replace a steel fire pit which had rusted through the bottom after 3 years. Assembly was reasonably easy with my son's assistance. Did not experience any damaged or missing pieces as other reviewers had complained of. Chiminea is attractive and appears reasonably well made with cast iron grates and a cast iron chimney. After a couple of uses have found it works very well drawing smoke through the chimney and away from those around it once the fire heats up. It is large and heavy, and will be difficult to get into the garage attic where I typically stored fire pits in the summer. Hopefully, it will prove to offer a longer than normal useful life as other reviewers have reported.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CH a great purchase and HD customer service was fabulous!
I was able to put this together all by myself. I am a mature woman who does not normally work with tools at all. It was very easy to do! Delivery cost was included. When I needed one more part, customer service went above and beyond to help me, even though it was the holiday period!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by momof2 Eventually it was wonderful
We ordered this chimiea to replace our clay one that broke. I had it delivered because it was a hassle for us to get to the store and go get it.
We got it home and started to put it together and found that there was hardware missing. Rather than make a big deal about a couple of screws and bolts he went out and bought a replacement. We lit it up that night and enjoyed a lovely fire. While we were sitting there it looked like some of the finish was bubbling up. I looked at it the next day after it had totally cooled down and found it was a hole straight through! I called up and found I cant buy just the parts that were no good. You cant do that so we had to take the thing apart and bring it back in the car. What a pain!! I was surprised we weren't offered the replacement be shipped like the first one!
We open up the SECOND Chiminea and my daughter and I put it together. The screen was bent out of shape and we had to hammer it to get the holes to line up. This is extremely heavy so it is no fun wrestling with it.
Now that it is together it is very nice. No signs of defect so hopefully we are good. So there were problems but when all is said and done this is a very nice solid Chiminea. I gave it 3 stars because you should be aware that t here are likely to be some problems but once you get past them it is very nice.
