I have a km chiller and honestly it dosent make that much difference in my opinion. If you want cooler smoke nothing beats the old trick of ice in the vase. However if you have the money and you like the look a ice chamber provides go for it!

They look nice, but that's about it.

They work just as good.
But don't look as nice.

On a small hookah, it might help compensate for a short stem, on a normal sized pipe, they don't do jack. If you really must have cold smoke, put 3-4 ice cubes in the bottle.

Yeah, Chillers don't do anything... Just make it easier for your pipe to tip over, with the added weight...

Those are even more worthless. The bowls get hot so that the tobacco can be warmed up to start evaporating the molasses on the tobacco. The ice bowls are pointless because the ice will melt before the tobacco is smoking properly. If you want cooler smoke ice in the base is the best method. This being said I prefer to use cool tap water instead of ice because if you cool down the smoke too much it dulls the flavor from my experience. I think ice chambers are a nice aesthetic to the pipes but its more trouble than its worth in my opinion.

I tried a Chiller, I didn't notice much of a difference. It is much more effective to put ice in the base.

Top-heavy is never a good thing... unless it's a broad
