How Heavy is a Chiminea?
Here are our detailed findings below, sorted by relative size. Please note that relative size was determined by taking into account the height, weight, and diameter of the chiminea.
We’ve included the links so you can check the examples of the different chimineas and how heavy they are.
When considering the weight of a chiminea, the material it’s made of and the dimensions are the main contributing factors.
Small chimineas will obviously be lighter, but for the lightest chiminea material, you’ll want a steel chiminea.
In general, the heaviest are cast iron chimineas, and what better to illustrate this than the massive behemoth that is the ‘Aussie Heatwave Chiminea’‘. Unfortunately, these are not available in the UK just yet, but what a beautiful sight these chimineas are!
It’s important to think about the weight of a chiminea that you might purchase because to move it safely may need 2 people or even a sack truck or dolly with wheels to get it into position.
As we’ve discussed in other articles moving your chiminea can be tricky as they are potentially extremely heavy and clay chimineas are easily damaged. Talk to any chiminea supplier and they’ll tell you about the alarming number of breakages just getting the thing into the right place in the garden!
