It's on our list of the best chimeneas for a reason – robust, pleasingly rustic, and made from clay, just like a chimenea should be.

This traditional Mexican-style piece will look amazing as part of a traditional or country garden design, and has a multi-purpose construction that allows you to take the top off and use the chrome-plated grill (provided) for charcoal cooking. Yum. 

The only thing to bear in mind with this chimenea is that it has to be used according to instructions: out too much wood in it, and it will crack from overheating. And at this price – £65 at Amazon currently, as opposed to £99 elsewhere – it's definitely worth giving it a go.
