5 BEST Chiminea Covers For Protecting Fire Pit: Small, Large, Thick, & Custom Covers

| | , ,

Using a good chiminea cover is essential if you want to protect your fire and keep it in the best condition.

This is especially so if you have a clay chiminea, which can be completely ruined by rain. Also, cast iron chiminea will rust if exposed to moisture.

Even a stainless steel chiminea is best kept under a cover so that it’s ready to use when you need it. There’s nothing worse than deciding you want to light the fire and then finding out the bowl is full of water!

No, get a cover and your fire will always be ready to use.

Whether you have a cast iron chiminea, such as from the Blue Rooster Chiminea range, or a more traditional chiminea, it’s a good idea to have a cover to protect it from the weather.

Ideally, you want to find one that goes right down to the ground, or at least to the feet of your chiminea. Clay chimenea will usually be sitting in a metal frame which is not as important to cover, but cast iron feet will need to be protected.

If there isn’t a specially designed chiminea cover for your specific model you will need to measure it to ensure you get the best cover with the right fit.

One measurement that is especially important to get right is the chimney height. If you order a cover that is too short in the chimney, it will end up making the overall fit no good.

Here are the measurements you need to pick the right chiminea cover:

  • Width at the top of the chimney
  • The overall height and chimney height
  • The width of the fire bowl

Also,  you don’t want to pick a cover that is far too big as it will likely collect and hold rain which could shorten the life of your cover.

Best Chiminea Covers For Sale

Amazon offers a massive variety of chiminea top covers, many designed for specific brands of chiminea.

For example, this cover from Bali Outdoors (also featured below) is made especially for the Bali Outdoors 22 inch fire pit. Before you buy, make sure there isn’t already a purpose-designed cover for your brand chiminea.

Buying them pre-made like this is a lot cheaper than ordering a custom cover, and in fact, these covers are all very affordable.

With those things in mind, here are the top 5 chiminea covers that can be bought now for delivery within the next day or two.

1. Sturdy Covers Chiminea Top Cover


This cover from Sturdy Covers is one of the best-selling options, though is sometimes out of stock.

It looks good, protects from both the sun and rain, and will fit most shapes and sizes of chiminea.

Features include:

  • Designed to cover from top to bottom
  • Has 3 leg straps
  • Has a bottom elastic hem cord

Dimensions are 12.5″ top diameter x 40″ high x 24″ bottom diameter.

The pros of this cover are that it has been tried and tested by many hundreds of people and been very well-reviewed. It does the job, protecting chiminea from the sun, rain, and wind.

The cons of this cover are that the color can fade in the sun and that it won’t actually fit all chiminea.

2. Bali Outdoors Patio Chiminea Cover


This cover from Bali Outdoors is designed to fit the Bali Outdoors chiminea (here on Amazon).

However, it will fit a range of other chimineas as well if the dimensions are right, and it comes in a range of sizes.

The seller lists these other fire pit brands that it is compatible with:

  • Endless Summer
  • Blue Rhino
  • Bond Lari
  • Xtremenpower US
  • Myrtle
  • Hampton Bay
  • Hiland Gas Firepit

However, make sure you double-check and confirm sizing before buying, even if your brand of fire pit is listed here.

This chiminea covering measures 43.3 inches high with a top diameter of 15 inches and a bottom diameter of 22 inches.

It is well designed for rain and moisture run-off. It has a bit of a point on top as well which keeps water from sitting and possibly freezing in the winter.

Features include:

  • Made from 600D polyester fabric
  • Protects from snow, dust, UV rays, wind, and water
  • Comes with a handy carry bag
  • Has an adjustable elastic hem

The main pro of this chiminea top cover is that it is designed for a specific model. This means it’s a nice snug fit. It’s a durable and tough cover that comes with a 12-month warranty but should last a lot longer.

The main con is that it won’t last forever. You should be able to get 2 or 3 winters out of it at least, but if it’s in an exposed area it will deteriorate over time and need replacing.

3. SIRUITON Chiminea Fire Pit Cover


This cover from Siruiton is another affordable option that is available in different sizes.

Sizes are:

  • Size 1 – 9 inch top x 48 inch high x 25 inch wide
  • Size 2 – 13.38 inch top x 48 inch high x 25 inch wide

It’s really only the top chimney diameter that changes between the two, for those with a thicker or thinner smoke stack.

Features include:

  • 420D Oxford+PU Coating Material
  • Tear resistant and dust proof
  • Easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth
  • Corner fixing buckles
  • Thick material

The main pro of this cover is the heavy-duty waterproofing material. It’s great in the severest of weather. The main thing I like about this one is the look – it’s a really tidy-looking cover.

The only con is that it doesn’t fit many chiminea fit pits (not compatible with the Bali Outdoors chiminea).

4. Covermates Wide Cover For Chiminea


This cover will likely fit most clay chiminea and cover to below the stand.

As you’d expect, it repels rain and moisture and protects against the sun and wind.

However, this option is made of a thinner 300D polyester, meaning it’s not the best in really harsh environments. Don’t get it if you’re in Texas or other locations with high UV intensity.

Dimensions are 12 inch diameter at the top, height of 40 inches, and bottom diameter of 24 inches.

Features include:

  • Drawcord to pull tight around the bottom
  • Lightweight
  • Will protect against snow

The big pro of this chimenea cover is that it’s a really light option. Some of the covers we’ve listed weigh quite a bit more (which is good in some circumstances), so if you prefer a lighter option, this is it.

The main con is that this isn’t a cover for extreme climates. It won’t protect against the worst weather.

5. Classic Accessories Water Resistant Chimenea Cover


This cover from Classic Accessories is my favorite for style – I like the dual colors!

This is also one of the most feature-rich covers for chiminea.

Here’s what it includes:

  • Padded handles for comfort
  • Click-close straps for extra security
  • Air vents that reduce inside condensation
  • Elastic hem cord with toggle for a tight fit
  • Gardelle durable woven polyester water-resistant fabric

At its widest, it is 25 inches wide by 65 inches high, so this is good as a large chiminea cover.

It’s ultra water-resistant and actually fits in with the Classic Asseccories range of outdoor furniture coverings.

The pros of this cover are its size and quality. It’s definitely one of the best chiminea covers out there.

The main con is that it won’t fit every chiminea. It is shaped quite tightly so that it will only work with a select range of tall fire pits.

  1. You mentioned that these chemenia coverings are like 600D or 300D polyester etc but you don’t actually explain what that means. Is higher or lower better? Is it like thread count?

    • Apologies for that! ‘D’ stands for denier. The lower number means lighter, thinner yarns were used, and vice versa for higher numbers. For this type of application, you would probably want a higher number for greater strength and durability.
