Yes, It's an Ice chamber, but from what I've heard, it's more for looks. Give it a try, see if it makes a difference.

Beautiful hookah BTW.

Ya, they say it "cools the smoke," but to be honest, it's more for looks.

+1 on what everyone else has said... its an ice storage area. There are mixed opinions on if it really works. You can put ice in both and see what happens.

Either way.... Nice Hookah! Did you get a good deal on it?

Yeah dude thats a great buy for someone new to hookah but like everyone has said it is for ice. But make sure your a little more careful with the hookah because that moves it's center of gravity way up so it'll be easier to knock over.

I've wanted to try a chiller, I would think Ice in some salty water would do a really good job of chilling the stem.

And someone had said in another thread that ice in the base dilutes the flavor, any one wanna shed some light on that?

It's not the ice, it's the cold.

I still don't understand the obsession with making the smoke cold. Room temp water does fine and it doesn't kill the flavor.

Unless you're smoking outside in Arizona in the summertime, I don't see the point.

I agree, also if the smoke is too cold its harder to tell if the tobacco is burning(from my experience).

It works a little. Ice in both the I've chamber and base, the chamber should get cushed ice or it won't work
