If you're not well-versed in the many different types of outdoor firepits, you've probably never heard the word "chiminea" before. However, at the same time, you've most likely seen one, whether in person or online.

According to Firewood For Life, chimineas were traditionally used to produce heat or to cook, but now many just use them as decorative pieces. Further, while they used to all be made out of clay (like the one in the above image), nowadays, there are also many iron and aluminum versions available. While clay will provide you with an earthy and authentic look, iron is more durable and modern-looking, and aluminum shouldn't rust. To properly care for your chiminea, make sure to cover it before any harsh weather and fill the bottom of clay versions with sand.

If you're looking for a chiminea to add to your outdoor living space, below are 15 possible options, arranged from the cheapest to the most expensive.
