Lightbulb Very pretty, but do they work?

I just found these at http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=4329

They look gorgeous, but would glass get to hot and burn the tobacco to ashes?

No,
the glass wil not get hot enough to burn the tobacco to ashes
because glass got a low heat conductance

Ask John from ******* Hookah/ Hookah John. He stocked them for a while. He may have an opinion.

Glass gets plenty hot and quick if it's thin. it won't make your tobacco ashes but it will burn it and quick. I avoid glass bowls like the plague.

i did carry them, they look pretty but aren't good for functionality. while i never tried one they were very shallow and had a small diameter. if you're into looks get it, $9 isn't bad, but I'd stick to traditional egyptian clay. I think this thing will hold under 10g of shisha, so the only way I was every able to get rid of them was advertise them as a shisha saver

I've had a few ((the first 2 broke after 1 or two bowls because something would bump into them lightly and smash it to bits. the 3rd lasted a few more bowls... but after a tragic accident, it was smashed to bits as well))
1. not very durable
2. get REALLY hot... REALLY quick. heat management is quite difficult with these. and don't think about trying to take them off right after a session. Granted, clay bowls get hot, but it's a bearable heat... the glass bowl is just ridiculously hot.

I've seen a guy use one (with a glass top instead of foil) and he used it very well. smoked great and use very minimal coals... I guess he just got used to the heat management for his own equipment.

Like others have said, i'd recommend sticking with the egyptian clay... but if it's really buggin ya, pick one up. only 9 bucks.

doesnt matter if the foill is there, shit foil conducts heat like crazy. it WILL burn the goodness out of your tobacco.

I think he meant the foil is going to cover the bowl anyway so the looks arent that big of a deal

yeah in that case i agree, unless you have the perfect size foil that covers only the top part.

a few people like them but over all they are seen as crap. like was said glass has very low conductivity when it comes to heat (you can have one part at 2000*f and another a few inches away at 900*f so the heat will not get to all the tobacco evenly. also the shape seems to be part of the issue. the phunnel bowls that are glass seem to work better for most people.

i would stick with a mod bowl or other large egyptian bowl
