As the sun starts to emerge from its winter hiatus, you may be tempted to get back in the garden.
But with the cooler spring days still in season, Aldi’s latest outdoor long burner could just be the perfect purchase.
Last year, shoppers went crazy for the affordable product, posting pictures of themselves staying warm in front of the flames.
Well, it is back and for sale online priced at £69.99.
Nottinghamshire Live reports that last time it was available there was a rush to buy with people struggling to snap one up online.
One Facebook user posted: “Keep refreshing and checking because people are putting them in their basket, it’s being held for them for 30 minutes and if by then they haven’t bought it, it becomes available to buy again.”
They added: “Online but be quick. I’ve just literally ordered one.”
The Gardenline Outdoor Log Burner measures around 94 x 82 x 45cm and the retailer says that it is: “a gorgeous contemporary style and easy to assemble”. Adding: “This fabulous log burner is ideal for adding comforting touches to your outdoor space.”
The product has a 4.5 overall customer rating with some 717 people giving it five stars on Aldi’s website.
Comments included: “Very happy. Well made, solid, easy to put together.” and “Absolutely love this. So easy to assemble and it really is like having your living room fireplace in the garden. Fantastic.”
Another reviewer wrote: “Fantastic product. Excellent value and works well – would have liked it to have been plain black and also for the ends to have an open slot for longer bits of timber. Potential for a lower lid so could cook from it too but is a very good product.”
However, not everyone was a fan.
One reviewer who left a three star review said: “Rusty. Looks really nice and plenty of space for logs but it started to rust basically as soon as I put it in the garden so who knows if it will be functional this spring!”
Another three star review read: “It’s about right for the price, cheaply made and probably won’t last more a season as it rusts quite quickly. Good for a year’s worth of use tho. Could try coating it high temperature paint to improve it.”
Aldi said: “As this item is steel, rusting will naturally occur.
“A cover should be used for short term usage (once the product is cooled), it should be stored in a cool dry place for long term”.
The log burner is currently online priced at £69.99. Delivery starts from £3.95 with free returns.
