Shows up every now and again.

Personally, I can't attest to it damaging the microwave, but I wouldn't do it in mine.

Honestly just throw your coals on the stove before you begin your setup. By the time your pipe is ready to smoke your coals will be too.

I dunno if it will hurt the microwave.. Not worth trying to find out.

If you check out the link below, Coconara actually lists the microwave as a way to light them. I'm still not convinced on trying it though.

and for me, i can't light the coals and prepare the bowl at the same time cause i have to pack the bowl in my room then go downstairs to the basement to get my coals going but *shrug*

I would guess unless your microwave vents some where other then into your kitchen, that would wreak horribly. Plus I paid way too much money for my microwave to scorch the top of it lighting coals. Was till pretty cool though.

Sorry guys but I had to edit out the video. At the very end there was a plug for another forum.

If you dont care about ruining your microwave and possibly setting your house on fire, this is a great way to get those coals lit.

I edited because it's against the rules to link to or mention other hookah forums.

It's against the rules because some people can't play nice.

Why we aren't allowed to post things that mention another forum.

I don't want to hijack this thread, just find that kind of censorship a bit odd.

Its apparent you havent read the rules. It is explained briefly in the rule why we ask that other forums arent mentioned. Please take the time to read the rules.

I know its in the rules, but taking away from good conversation due to one or two words being mentioned at the end of a video is a little ridiculous.

And this is why the "competitive" nature of the hookah forums is stupid. People need to grow up and just get over themselves, and their communities. Its getting a bit old. As long as nobody is talking trash, it shouldn't be a big deal. Yes, I know the histories of why its like this, so I don't need a lecture. But still.

if you are familiar with why this rule is in place then why are you trying to stir up trouble by aruguing the fact? It is in place to keep the peace, there are still issues that go on, just because you dont see them or hear of them doesnt mean they dont exist. We do not want animosity to flare up between forums so this is why the rule exists.

You know that some people can't help but bring drama even if they don't mean to. It starts with threads getting off track and then everything goes to hell lol

But in regards to the OP this is something i want to try but not with a microwave that i'm ever gonna have to use again for anything but this. I'm curious how long you could light coco's in it until it broke. Someone should give it a shot.

BP are you saying your not attending the forum v forum throw down at the end of the month? It's organized in the same fashion as the fight in anchorman so GET READY!!!! lol i'm just kidding of course.

Please get this thread back on track, and read the rules.

If anybody wants to try microwaving coals? Go for it, and put Hookah Pro in the vid, see if another forum will want it on their site?? I'd like to see that ..

I'm not trying this. I'm sticking to the stove. I have heard some horror stories regading burnt out microwaves.

If I can find a CHEAP pos microwave i will definitely be doing this. Horror stories are great stories in my book lol and usually in my case, it ends in hilarity!
