I think these "mini phunnels" are going to be BURNERS! In my opinion, they are way tooo shallow, but should be good for about 20 minutes before they start to burn the tobacco, no matter how good your heat management is. Maybe try putting three layers of foil? That may help.

Hopefully we can get some unbiased and honest reviews from Members here, about this product.
