x2 - probably 2 coals is plenty for just about anything with a metal bowl.

I've never smoked out of any kind of metal bowl. Is heat management an issue with them?>

Wouldn't this make the shisha taste like metal?

Only thing of concern to me would be the grommets. Metal is a much better thermal conductor meaning the entire bowl would most likely be about the temp of the coals. Other than that I think it would heat up the tobacco faster and maybe even cook it more evenly.

I have one, its a V1 only 2 sets holes on 2 sides of the middle so it waste so much tobacco. Ive never used it. It was a gift from a friend. So now its just for show, that and its so deep, it hold at least 50g easy.

I would be afraid to try a metal bowl of anything, for fear that the heat conducted from the metal would melt the grommet?

Yeah but besides "supposedly" melting a grommet do you guys think it would evenly hear the bowl and provide good smoke?
