Rated 3 out of 5 by Nursey Slightly shoddy
This item was not as good quality as expected. The joints had gaps in them and there was a nut missing from one of the handles. I was able to find a nut the right size but this doesn't help when you have taken the product abroad to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dezmond Great value for money
I had seen this product in another well known DIY store which was a smaller version and then found this one in Homebase for much cheaper. It was easy to assemble and looks great in the garden. Gives off a lot of heat and looks great when lit up. Highly recommended.

Pleased we chose this one (we were looking at smaller one), we got everyone sitting round it at the end of the night with it being big. It looks great too! Really happy with it.
The only criticism is that the lady in the store told us that even though the box had been taped up that everything would be in, guess what.... Yup, missing a leg! Popped back to store and they rectified the problem straight away. Fab!

All parts arrived. It was easy to put together - the only downside was that the latch had been constructed the wrong way - but with a little engineering I redesigned it and it is now able to keep the door closed. It would benefit from information on what wood to use and/or how to keep it alight. I have bought wood - what I have been advised but it does not seem to be the right one - when lit it is very smoky before it calms down but then it only lasts about half an hour. Nice construction - fits excellently in my garden - yesterday sat out with it lit even when it got a bit cold.

This product looks fantastic and once assembled does exactly what u'd expect, the only problem is the fiddly assembly, which takes far longer than I exp

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen Excellent quality Chiminea
Looked around for a nice looking Chiminea that was durable and reasonably priced. This fitted our criteria. It's nice looking, well made and being very robust it does exactly the job it should. Looks great in our garden!

reviewed this product several weeks ago, and obviously, as it was so scathing, it was not posted. long story short, went to homebase, saw a cast iron monterray chiminea on display, bought what i thought was it, turns out it wasn't much more than sheet tin, took it back, pointed out the misleading display and suggested it be removed or relabelled so that customers would be aware of what they were getting, went back two weeks later and it was still there on the shelf. Check the weight on the box before you buy, if it says 14kg, it's not a cast iron chiminea you're getting.
