I wanted a traditional clay Chiminea, I read all the instructions and 'seasoned' it according to the instructions provided. The item was placed in its cover in a shed, never left out in bad weather. However the second time of using it I only used chiminea logs, kindling and paper, it developed a huge crack in the pot.
BBQ Land are refusing to amicably resolve this situation and therefore can only escalate through my card company. I am very disappointed considering I have only had it 6 months, obviously there is a fault with the quality of this item.
