AUSSIE HEATWAVE CAST IRON CHIMINEAMETAL – CAST IRONEXTRA LARGE*95
* we did not include the Aussie heatwave in the calculation of the average as they are not currently available in the UK and are more than double the weight of the next heaviest chiminea. Also, thank you, Wayfair for being one of the few companies who actually list ALL their product weights and dimensions.

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!

In Summary

Chimineas are available in a variety of different weights and sizes. We hope this article was useful in helping you understand how much chimineas weigh and which type might be best suited for your outdoor space.

If you managed to get this far, thanks for reading!
