Copper Chiminea

Copper chimineas are often popular because of their luxurious look. A freshly polished copper chiminea really can set the tone for a well appointed deck. However, there are several things you should know about having copper as an outdoor stove material.

Copper does do a good job of standing up to heat. Many units are rated up to 1700 degrees. They are less conductive for heat than cast iron, but the fact remains that heat will transfer to the walls and so this is something you will want to keep in mind.

As you may know from using copper pans, the bright glow of freshly polished metal will soon fade with time and weathering. Some copper chimineas will even turn a greenish tinge. This is due to the exposure to oxygen.

Another issue to look out for is the fact than many units that claim to be copper often have sheet metal or cast iron parts. Those parts will need to be maintained as well.

Finally, be prepared to pay more out the door for a copper chimenea. The more decorative, the more expensive.

However, many customers do understand these limitations and do enjoy their luxurious look.
