A phunnel bowl, is a ceramic bowl, used in hookah smoking. The tobacco is placed in a "doughnut" shaped impression and there is a central hole, which you cover with a small piece of foil. The tobacco juice stays in the impression, and does not drip down the stem.

Then how does the flavour or smoke get down through the stem? Sorry, I'm still kinda confused

theres a hole in the center for the smoke to go down the stem. think of it kind of like an angel cake container of sorts

here you go. The shisha is packed around the center hole. It's design makes sure no juices drip down the stem. A good investment if i say so myself.

I have never used a phunnel bowl either, but want to try. So your saying you just cover the middle hole with foil and not the whole bowl?

no you cover the whole bowl. Unless you buy the glass mod, then you don't poke holes over the center hole. Btw the glass mod is unnecessary, I only use it as a shisha saver.

The procedure is: Cut a small piece of foil about 3/4 inch square. Place it on the center (small) hole, loosely(un-punched). load the tobacco in the circular impression. then cover the top of the phunnel bowl, with a standard piece of foil, just like a traditional bowl. Then poke your holes as usual.

When you draw on the hookah, the smoke will travel through the space between the small foil, and the center hole. The small foil serves to keep flakes of tobacco from getting drawn down the stem, and winding up in the vase.

i have only used mine without a mod and it works great. this is the only bowl i have not ever burned my shisha in. they come in several sizes as they are hand made and i can't tell if the size makes any difference other than how much shisha you want to use

this bowl is a great investment in my book. it makes cleanup so much easier most you clean is ash out of the stem, makes smoke much more flavorful (more if you own the mod as well) and in some cases a bowl can last hours at a time if you enjoy that certain flavor a lot, or you are too lazy to want to get up and pack another bowl lol.

mind you they are VITAL if you plan to smoke tangiers though, thats the only real catch

If you have a more to spend then these http://mnhookahs.com/index.php?cPath=28_44 are fantastic, I find them better than the clay ones (the molasses lasts even longer and the taste is even better) and they look great as well.

Yep they are expensive but when you're used to paying a fortune in shipping a few extra $ makes bugger all difference lol.
