its kind of one of those paradoxes, with in the logic of the product it makes sense, once you look at the bigger picture it is blatantly illogical of course but:

-people want cold smoke
-we chill the stem, base and hose so the only thing left is the bowl
-keeping the bowl cold will keep the smoke cold
-lets make an ice bowl

just have to negate the fact of how the tobacco is heated and it works in that logic

if you were burning the tobacco (like coals on tobacco) it might do its job but still not much

Swear ive seen this on smoking-hookah and maybe even H-S

And before logic kicks in, it does make sense, but then logic DOES kick in.

Well, for the vast majority of us, this is a completely stupid idea that we would never buy. However, there are some people out there that are stupid enough to think this would work, but with lots of noobs overpacking bowls, or putting too much heat, this bowl could help them. The water in the bowl would cool down the shisha, possibly enough to make the session smokeable. Granted, if the thing cracks then it doesn nothing, but still.

man it works! clay is used for hookah for two reasons, first: it's cheap, second: it can deal well with temperatures!! it won't crack the only bad side is you don't have much room for shisha, nor coal, what makes a short session that is likely to burn if you don't know what you are doing.

why is it good? the smoke get's chilled right away, it isn't building up a warm smoke and then get's in the water as a bunch, it's builds up cold smoke so it kicks ass! the reason to doubt it is because clay isn't know as a good heat transmitter.. got my point?

if I show how to make a good diffuser easily, you want it written or video?

i really hope this is sarcasm.

the tobacco is steamed (i.e. heated) you cannot heat and cool something at the same time and expect the temp to change. its not the material that is in question (which pet peeve it is ceramic once it is fired). it will crack because the water expands and forces it apart, some one on here got one for s's and g's or for free and 2 or 3 of them in a row that were replacements have cracked when being frozen

now using it w/o ice might help build up more even heat in the bowl with the extra layer of insulation there

Heat is needed to smoke in the first place.

This concept is like trying to light a cigarette with an ice cube; it will not smoke, it will ruin your cigarette, and people will give you weird looks.
