not sure why this would break the glass unless it was hot before you put it in the freezer. even normal glass should be able to stand the slow temperature change...

the only reason cokes explode in the freezer is because they're sealed, so the pressure builds up. the base isn't, so not sure why it would explode...

Yea, best not to take the risk, why risk breaking a base for a little extra cold?

people take this ice thing too far, ok.

If you've any idea of fluid mechanics or even Chemistry , you would know that it would not create that big of a difference.

we do, it helps moderately cool the smoke for the small amount of time its in the base which in turn helps condense the smoke a bit more than with room temperature. that is pretty basic.

there are people out there that think if you do that it becomes a hell of a lot smoother, which in reality you would need most of it at a colder temperature to achieve that, which is why some hookahs incorporate an ice chamber on the stem.

lol longer than i expected. But that freezable base looks like crap to me. and the description too. it wont make tobacco or coals burn out any slower, but i can see it making a session moderately more enjoyable

At the Hookah Bar I used to go to. He had one acrylic base that he used to put in the freezer and I got to use it once and the smoke that came out of that hookah was amazing lol
