Gardeco Toledo extra large cast iron chiminea - was £169.99, now £104.99 @ Primrose

Found 25th Mar 2014
Although the UK weather is intent on raining on my parade this chiminea will be ready to come out to play a bit later in the year. As it is still out of season, this very large 100% cast iron chiminea is a bargain price at £105 for those looking for something in which to burn wood whilst sitting around it feeling jolly...

"argos has it much cheaper and its even bigger than this one"

Hardly a worthy comparison.... The Argos one is bigger yes. However it is also a cheapo cast iron and steel construction (55% steel) .In fact to quote directly from the Argos website:

This classic large cast iron chiminea looks great from any angle, perfect for illuminating outdoor areas at night.
•Made from 55% steel.
•Sliding door for easy access.

The Gardeco chiminea's are 100% cast iron and are of high quality build. So, yes there is a difference in price - but the two products are at totally different ends of the spectrum.

If we're looking at descriptions, it doesn't say that it's all cast iron construction in the description of the Primrose one.

Thanks for clarifying - certainly supports the case for the product being at a different end of the quality spectrum.

The only word of caution I would add is that whilst they both look like the same item, they're being sold as if they were their own brand so if the Primrose one turns out to be of different construction with the same design, you don't have any come back because they do not note the construction in their description.

Edit: I phoned Primrose to confirm that it was indeed the brand stated in the alternate link - this is hot (no pun intended)

Following you're astute observation I have called Primrose to make sure - it is the genuine Gardeco Toledo, they just left Gardeco out of the title. I panicked a bit then thinking I'd ordered a non-brand...

Brilliant they just got the same phone call twice, they must wonder what's going on!

I've also purchased - not bargain of the year but it's a decent price for the perceived quality. Obviously if it's not up to scratch, it will go back.

It's not showing in my title because you haven't entered it into the title. Switch to "text only" mode and have a look. If the price isn't in the title it won't show to everybody.
