patio heater and BBQ in one
Member Name: barbie84
Advantages: realy useful
Disadvantages: the paint peeled
We brought our daughters a trampoline this summer, you know one of the great big ones which they loved to play on all day.
They were buisy bouncing around on the trampoline so didnt get cold but just sitting there the summer evenings do drop quite chilly so i brought us a chiminea from littlewoods for £69.
I didnt realise they were so heavy, made out of cast iron it takes two of us just to move the thing so now i have positioned it where i want it it wont be being moved again in a hurry.
I thought this was a great idea as it has more than 1 use, it as i primarilay brought it for is a patio heater and does give off quite a lot of heat, you can also use it to cook food in but i have never tried this so dont know how good it is.
We use ours to burn all sorts of things, you can buy coal or coke for it from most supermarkets for around £4 a bag but i tend to use it more to get rid of garden rubbish, i put my letters in to there instead of shredding them and boxing day wholst the kids played on there new roller scates i burnt the wrapping paper and boxes.
We had a real christmas tree so tomorow i am going to take that down and get rid of that in my chiminea too.
I must say i love my chiminea but was very dissapointed when after only 2 days outside in glorious sunny weather and not having been lit yet the paint started to peel but i fixed it by painting it with a tin of heat proof black paint from B&Q and also painted the flour details on the side in silver, it lookes better than it did when i first brought it.
Summary: a must for anyone who loves to sit in the garden of a summers night
