Pyrex is the glass they make beakers and stuff for chemistry labs with, it takes up to 1500º and it also has even heat spreading, so your shisha burns simultaneously from the top and the bottom

Well I think as cool as it seems, It would smoke like butt... Glass isn't very insulated... so the tabacco would lose alot of heat around the edges keeping it from burning evenly and even worse, you wouldn't get nearly as thick of smoke... the metal version has a similar issue, but its almost indestructable so thats that trade off there, but with glass you would have the exact opposite.

pyrex (brand name for borosillica glass) is very durable (if worked properly). it has rather high strength and resists thermal shock well however it is still glass and as such cannot be as strong in real life as it can be in theory due to all the microscopic cracks/scratches that happen during manufacture (if these did not happen glass would be basically impossible to break ever)

as to the heat spreading that is debatable, glass has a pretty bad conductive properties (you can have 2000* glass in one spot and 500* glass just an inch or 2 away and room temp glass less than 6 inches from the hot spot. granted thin glass will transfer heat alright but ceramics are better at evening out the heat from what i have seen.


its cool and all but i dont think a glass bowl is a great idea, they are 2-5 times the cost of normal, not really stronger than ceramic, wont take thermal shock as well, and over all dont smoke any better if not worse.

My apologies. But regardless of that your best bet for a users opinion os the people from SSC which I linked you too. Thought you would be happy considering so far nobody else has tried them. They were just released.
