I have no experience with either... but from what I've understood on the board it's the quality of material used.

Kind of like the Chinese ceramic vs Egyptian clay Egyptian-style bowls...

Jeah. The style and outlook of the bowl is the same, but there is a difference between the material they were made of.

I don't have a chinese one, but I ve heard there are minor variations in depth/spire height from the tangiers version.

The main difference I have noticed is that the Tangiers bowl has a shorter spire if you will. That means when you put the foil over the bowl there is more space between the foil and the "hole". This actually helps out with the sagging foil issue that sometimes impedes smoke circulation and restricts the pull.

I started off on a chinese bowl, thinking it was the exact same, but that shorter spire on the tangiers bowl helps with that issue.

most chinese phunnels are hollow throughout, leaving them hard to clean and more space for air/less smoke

I've noticed a difference in heat... The chinese ones give off more heat IMO

Do you mean gives off or retains? I think you mean the opposite of what you said, but I m not sure >.>

Retains, would mean it holds more heat longer.

Gives off, would be the opposite.


Well I suppose its how u look it at....I m too tired for this shit.

I take "give off more heat" in this example as the chinese burning hotter....

I have a medium tangier's phunnel and a small chinese phunnel. I think the only difference is the difference in materials. The chinese phunnel tends to burn hotter. I'm not sure what materials are used but the chinese has a shiney finish and the tangiers finish is dull.

I have both bowls and I've read a lot about both just to see why the chinese is so hated, but a good substitute if you don't have a real tangiers phunnel bowl. The chinese phunnel does require more heat then the tangiers phunnel bowl (from my experience) and the tangiers phunnel bowl is a lot deeper then the chinese.

The Chinese phunnel is painted with lead.

i have been using an egyptian clay phunnel lately and contemplating carrying it. it's really rough meaning they are hand made and not totally uniform, and no as clean as chinese or tangiers, however the heat management is great, it's really wide and shallow so it doesn't use too much tobacco. i mentioned it before and no one really talked about it. if i get enough interest i may stock some. i think they are pretty good, however the tangier phunnel bowl inventor thinks it's a piece of junk, a little biased, but he does know what he is talking about with his materials and design, but could be biased, maybe, just a bit.

This is more than enough reason to carry it
