Types of Hookah Bowls

Hookah Bowls

Hookah Bowls are one of the most important parts of your hookah. Not only do they provide the tobacco with heat and smoke but they also influence the overall taste of your hookah session.

Can you feel hookah?

There are many different types of bowls in the market, made from a variety of materials such as clay, ceramics, metals, glass and even silicone. However, clay bowls remain the most popular choice for hookah smokers around the world due to their affordability and durability.

The Egyptian bowl is a classic style that is often included with new hookah purchases. It has a deep narrow design and a single hole in the center. This bowl is great for smoking strong and robust flavors as it can withstand the high heat of the charcoal without burning your shisha.

In recent years, the popularity of the hookah bowl has continued to rise. As a result, new innovations and techniques have been created to enhance the smoking experience. One of these trends is the use of a bowl that captures and collects the juice runoff from the tobacco, instead of simply draining it. The result is a longer and more enjoyable smoke session for the smoker.

A few of the more recent bowl innovations include the Rook bowl, which takes its name and form from a famous chess piece. This phunnel bowl features four notches on the inner spire that allow for more air flow and effectively mediate a common flaw found in other phunnel bowls where the draw is cut off from the spire.
