It is important you observe the instructions and maintenance recommendations.

Metal chimeneas will rust. How much they rust is dependant on whether they are left outside in all weathers, how much they are used, how they are looked after. All can be re-painted. Rust does not affect use or functionality.

Metal chimeneas surfaces can become very hot in use and will burn the skin if touched. Burning temperatures inside steel and cast iron chimeneas are even higher than inside traditional cast iron chimeneas. We recommend the use of fire-resistant gloves at all times. Keep away form children and animals. For outdoor use only.

The Gardeco Tia Chim Stove is designed to fit between the top bowl and funnel of the Tia Chimenea, the Chim-
Stove comes with a large removable cast iron hotplate, ribbed for barbecuing on one side and flat on the other
to use as a plancha. Remove the hotplate to use with a wok..
The cast-iron hotplate is directly above the fire ensuring rapid heating and maximum heat transfer for cooking
the best and most succulent food preparations. Smoke is diverted sideways and comes out of the funnel. The
Chim-Stove is easy to install, simply remove the Tia funnel and place in position on the top bowl and fix the nuts
and bolts, refit the funnel to the side outlet of the Chim-Stove. Light the fire and you are ready to cook!
The recommended fuel is dry logs. Remove the lower charcoal grill, wood burns best on a bed of hot ash. For
best results light the fire in advance and allow the fuel to become well alight and the chimenea to heat-up. Re-
place the charcoal grill to cook with charcoal using the swing-out BBQ grill.
Please make sure you take the lid off the top funnel before you light the fire. This is necessary to create a
draft of air, so the smoke will be drawn through the chim stove body and up the chimney. If you leave the lid on
the funnel, the smoke will not find the way out and come out of the mouth of the chimenea, and the fuel will not
burn properly.
The hot flames of the fire are directly beneath the cast iron hotplate, and so the temperature of the plate
increases rapidly. The bigger the fire, the hotter the plate. Cast iron can become extremely hot, so be very
careful not to burn yourself. The hotter the plate, the faster the food will cook.
One side of the cast iron hotplate has ribs for griddle BBQing. You can BBQ foods you would normally cook on a
gas or charcoal BBQ on the ribbed side, and there won£#8219;t be any smoke contact or flames to spoil the food be-
cause fat cannot fall into the fire and burn. A Tia chim stove is healthier than a conventional BBQ.
The other side of the cast iron hotplate is flat. You can cook food on this side in the same way as you would on a
large frying pan or plancha or use as a hob with saucepans and with kettles suitable for real fires - not electric
You need to choose which side to use before each session,because the side of the hotplate not in use will be coated with soot from the fire and will need to be washed before future use .
Remove the hotplate completely, and place a large wok ionto the opening, and you can stir fry food perfectly.
You can use the Tia chimenea with or without the Chim-Stove unit in place. You can use the BBQ grill of the
chimenea as well as the Chim-Stove. If the swing-out BBQ grill is not required, please take it out.
Please read the following instructions and recommendations and use CAUTION at all times for the safe en-
joyment of a real patio fire. Please keep these instructions in a safe place so you can read them again from
time to time.
ALWAYS FOLLOW THE USER INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to do so may result in personal accidents or fires
spreading to property. Please remember, you are dealing with a real fire.
PLACE your real patio fire on a FLAT surface£#894; you should NOT place on a sloping surface where the fire
might tip over.
This should be a NON-FLAMMABLE surface such as stone, gravel or bricks. Do not place on grass which
may turn brown. Do not place on wood which may turn brown or catch fire. DO NOT PLACE ON DECKING
which may turn brown or catch fire.
Protect wooden decking with a Gardeco FLOOR PROTECTION or use bricks or concrete slabs.
DO NOT place your fire near bushes or plants or under trees£#894; the heat will damage the leaves and is a fire
DO NOT place your real fire under an awning£#894; it will burn or melt.
DO NOT place your real fire near garden furniture, especially made of fabric or woven plastic, which may
melt or catch fire. We recommend at least one metre distance.
DO NOT make a real fire inside a conservatory or summer house or shed£#894; real fires are designed to be
outside, and fumes emanating from the fire made with wood, coal or charcoal are toxic and dangerous to
health. You can use your patio fire indoors ONLY WHEN USING WITH THE CHIM BURNER AND BIO-
DO NOT touch the real fire when burning£#894; the surface is hot and you will burn your fingers£#894; protect your
hands with a Gardeco FIRE GLOVE. We recommend that gloves are used at all times.
DO NOT allow children, especially small children, near the fire. Do not allow pets near the fire.
DO NOT allow children to play or run around the fire. It is not a game. Use a Gardeco CHIMENEA GUARD
to prevent small children coming close to the fire.
DO NOT over fuel the fire. If flames are coming out of the top of the chimenea, then the fire is too
DO NOT PANIC if fuel falls out of the fire or for any reason flames spread out from the patio fire,
simply extinguish spreading flames with earth or sand or with water immediately.
DO NOT throw water on a real fire other than in an emergency.
DO NOT use petrol, paraffin or similar substances as fire lighters or as a fuel. The best method is balled
newspaper and kindling, such as Gardeco OCOTE sticks. The best fuel is wood or charcoal. Remove the
charcoal grill when not burning charcoal.
NEVER LEAVE A BURNING REAL PATIO FIRE UNATTENDED. Failure to do so may result in the fire
spreading out of control and result in damage or destruction of property. Please ensure the fire is
completely out before leaving the real patio fire unattended.
DO NOT attempt to move a real patio fire while the fire is burning.
We advise against using a real patio fire when it is windy or in the case of droughts. Strong wind may tip
the chimenea over which is a fire risk. Wind may also disperse burning material, which is a fire risk, partic
ularly if the environment is dry as in the case of a drought.
Please be a good neighbour and be reasonable in the use of your patio fire, keep smoke and noise to a mini
Although your chimenea or patio fire is coated with heat-resistant paint, the PAINT WILL BURN OFF -
this may happen after one use only. The bigger the fire, the faster the paint will burn off.
A chimenea or patio fire can be re-painted with high temperature resistant paint available from Gardeco
or local DIY store.
Cast iron and steel corrode quickly in wet conditions and WILL RUST. Rusting is a natural phenomenon that
cannot be prevented. It is not a product defect therefore Gardeco offer no guarantees against rusting.
Corrosion may occur after one use only.
A rusty chimenea is still fit for purpose and can continue to be used. No refunds or replacements will be
given for rusty chimeneas.
Rust runs may mark flooring, slabs, and patios, so if you are worried abut marking, protect your flooring.
To reduce the likelihood of rusting, wipe the whole surface of the product with oil after each use. Use a
rag or brush to that effect.
Bring inside or protect with a weatherproof chimenea cover. Gardeco sell many sizes of covers in various
quality grades. If the cover traps dampness underneath it, the chimenea may still go rusty. Ideally, bring
inside for the winter.
To maintain the finish, clean the surface with a soft cloth. Do not use a wire brush. Slight wear and tear
scratches may appear with normal use.
Use your chimenea or real patio fire for warmth and cooking, Chimeneas are beautiful to look at and can be
used as garden decorations.
You may use dry wood logs, charcoal, coal or briquettes for fuel. Chimeneas and other patio fires can be
used to burn garden refuse such as leaves or branches. DO NOT throw fuel into a chimenea. Wet logs will
create a lot of smoke.
The environmental friendly fuel is wood or charcoal which is carbon neutral.
When cooking use locally made charcoal from renewable forests with minimal transport cost. Gardeco Wyre
Forest Charcoal is made in the Wyre Forest in the UK West Midlands following to ancient rural methods.
Gardeco CHIM LOGS, which are made from environmentally friendly recycled sawdust and burn slowly with
little smoke.
To start a fire use domestic fire lighters or balled newspaper and kindling.
The best and most natural way to start the fire is Gardeco Ocote fire lighters. Ocote is a high resin
content pinewood from Central America, one or two sticks are enough to light a fire.
For a fire without firelighters or kindling, use the smokeless Gardeco FIRE LOG, a wax impregnated
sawdust briquette, wrapped in a paper. Just light both ends of the paper and the log will burn for about
2½ hours. You cannot use Gardeco Fire Logs for cooking.
Protect hands with Gardeco FIRE GLOVES when adding fuel. The more fuel is added, the more intense the
heat, the larger the flames. Do not over-fuel the fire.
Use a Gardeco POKER to reposition logs inside the patio fire.
If the fire is slow to start, more air will help, use a Gardeco BELLOWS to blow air into a slow fire.
No one wants smoke to spoil their party, a Gardeco EXTENSION CHIMNEY raises smoke above the heads
of standing people and increases the draw enabling the fire to burn more efficiently.
Safety is our main concern, so please use a CHIMENEA GUARD to keep small fingers well away from the
Wood fuels burn by drawing air from above whilst charcoal and coal also need air from underneath. Some
products are supplied with a charcoal grill and some have a BBQ grill. If you are using wood alone, you do not
need a charcoal grill. If you are not cooking on your chimenea, you may decide to remove the BBQ grill if
there is one in your chimenea.
Please remove the lid prior to starting the fire. Leaving the lid on the chimenea will prevent the smoke from
pulling up the chimney and the smoke will come out of the mouth instead. Please do not place the lid back on
the chimenea once the fire is burning. This would increase the fire temperature and be a fire risk.
Bio-ethanol burns without smoke, soot or ash. Simply position your Tia chimenea in an safe place in your house,
and it turns into a real flame decorative heater! NEVER move your chimenea while the fuel is burning or when
there is fuel left inside the Chim Burner.
Please read, retain and follow the instructions and recommendations and use caution at all times for the safe
enjoyment of your chimenea and bio-ethanol Chim Burner.
DO NOT put on carpets, wooden or plastic flooring which may mark or catch fire.
DO NOT place your chimenea near curtains, soft furnishings which may melt or catch fire. We recommend a
minimum distance of 1 metre from any such materials.
DO NOT place your chimenea near plants or items sensitive to heat. They will be affected by the heat and it is
a fire risk.
DO NOT place your chimenea where it is likely to be knocked over or bumped into.
DO NOT place your chimenea under or near electrical cables or installations. It is dangerous.
DO NOT place your chimenea underneath lamps or other fittings. It is dangerous and a fire risk.
DO NOT lean over the fire and flames. Hair burns at low temperature and very quickly.
DO NOT bring your face near the flames.
DO NOT cover or leave clothes or newspapers on or near the chimenea. They are a fire risk.
DO NOT use the chimenea to dry clothes which may catch fire.
DO NOT allow children, especially small children near the chimenea. Especially DO NOT allow children to play
or run around the fire. It is NOT a toy. KEEP pets away from the chimenea.
OBSERVE the minimum room size requirements of 22 cubic metres. DO NOT place the chimenea in an unventi-
lated room.
DO NOT leave a fire unattended at any time. We recommend placing a fire extinguisher near to your fire as a
safety precaution.
Now you can enjoy an instant fire with no logs, no smoke and
no mess in any chimenea or fire bowl and you can bring your
chimenea or fire bowl into the house and use as a decorative
additional heater.
Bio-ethanol is environmentally-friendly and burns without
smoke, leaves no soot or ashes, lights instantly and snuffs out
in seconds.
Special care and attention is necessary when cooking on a chimenea or fire bowl to avoid contamination by smoke or soot.
BBQ grills and other accessories are coated with vegetable cooking oil during manufacture but may have gathered dirt
and dust therefore need to be cleaned in hot water and detergent to remove any foreign matter and debris.
After cleaning and drying, cooking accessories are best lightly coated with vegetable cooking oil before use.
After use, they need to be cleaned again with hot water and detergent and coated with vegetable cooking oil before
If you do not oil cooking accessories they will rust, this could happen after first use. If you wash cooking accessories
with water and don£#8219;t coat with cooking oil rust can occur in a matter of hours.
After use the surfaces of the cooking accessories in direct contact with the fire will be covered in black carbon soot.
Soot can be washed off with hot water and household detergent or washing up liquid. Be careful because black soot
residues will mark surfaces, tea towels or washing up cloths. All soot must be removed before oiling and storage.
Do not cook on flames, if you do this there will be a soot residue on the food, which is unhealthy. Be aware wood is often
treated with preservatives which are toxic and can contaminate the food.
When cooking use dry wood or charcoal, and allow the wood gas to burn off as flames to
leave hot glowing embers, cook on the embers.
If meat releases fat onto the hot embers which makes a flame, move the meat away from
the flame.
Keep a spray bottle of water handy to squirt on any flames.
Used a cast iron pan to grill meat rather than placing directly on a grill.
Alternatively wrap food in aluminium foil to prevent contamination.
When cooking outdoors take care food is kept in hygienic conditions.
DO NOT leave meats in the sun or outside in hot weather, keep cool and covered with a clean cloth.
DO NOT leave butter in the sun or uncovered.
Keep meat and vegetables in separate dishes to avoid cross contamination with fluids.
Only bring food out into the garden before cooking and it should be consumed after cooking as soon as possible.
Food should be eaten while hot, immediately after coming out of the fire. Dispose of any cooked food not eaten.
MAKE SURE meat is thoroughly cooked.
When cooking accessories are taken out of the fire, they are hot and need to be put onto a hard non-flammable
surface, so the contents of the cooking accessory can be removed.
DO NOT place the cooking accessory on the patio, grass, earth or directly on the ground. Best use a Gardeco chim
table or Gardeco cradle for clay chimeneas.
DO NOT put hot cooking accessories directly onto wood, furniture, plates, crockery or plastic surface.
Parts of the cooking accessories in direct contact with the fire may become covered with carbon soot. Make sure
you do not contaminate your food with soot.
CAREFUL HOT! DO NOT TOUCH, steel and cast iron cooking accessories are very hot when taken out of the fire,
do not touch with your fingers, protect hands with Gardeco FIRE GLOVES.
Cast iron cooking accessories can remain hot after use, so ALWAYS be very careful and cautious when handling
cast iron cooking accessories.
DO NOT allow children to handle any of the cooking accessories.
NEVER leave a cooking accessory in the fire unattended. If you leave food in the fire, it will be burnt and inedible.
Cast iron accessories should be pre-heated for best results.
Always coat the inside with oil or butter of all accessories to prevent food sticking.
Butter tastes better than oil for waffles and pancakes.
A small brush is useful for oiling or buttering surfaces.
A flat spatula is useful to release foods from the accessory.
Gardeco cooking accessories are specially designed for use in chimeneas, fire bowls, barbecues or outdoor fires.
The materials used are suitable for the greater intensity of outdoor fires, with long handles to ensure ease of

All cooking accessories, whether supplied with the product or separately must be washed before first use to
remove any potential dirt due to manufacture or packaging operations. We recommend you also wash them be-
fore use every time subsequently, even if they were put away clean.
All cast iron cooking accessories including BBQ grills and hot plates are coated with vegetable oil to stop rust-
ing when you first get them. After use, all cooking accessories need to be cleaned in soapy water to remove
soot and cooing residue. Dry them well after cleaning and immediately coat them with vegetable oil before
putting away. Failure to coat with vegetable oil will mean the accessory will start rusting. NEVER use mineral
oil which is harmful to human health.
For cooking accessories purchased separately from this product, follow the cooking instructions supplied with
the packaging.
If your chimenea is equipped with a swivelling cast iron BBQ grill, remember to remove and wash it thoroughly
and coat it with vegetable oil before and after use. Put food directly onto the BBQ grill, either pre-heated or
not. For pizzas, use the pizza stone. Use the multi-purpose tool provided to swivel the BBQ grill in and out.
Never touch the BBQ grill with your hands while hot. A cast iron BBQ grill will remain hot a long time after
use, even if taken out of the chimenea.
