Care and safety concerns for iron chimeneas

Owning one is great; however, there are some considerations to keep in mind. One is that unlike an aluminum chiminea, iron rusts and will require painting and sanding from time to time. One way to protect the from rust is to keep it covered during the off season.

Chimenea covers sell for around $25 to $50 online and are a necessary the investment. You can find a great selection on Amazon
