yea i am guessing that the ice would melt 15 to 20 min into the session...not to mention the added time its out for packing the bowl....imo its probably a waste of money

i'd imagine the cool from the ice would interfer with the coals trying to heat up the tobacco? just a thought. i'd be curious to hear from anyone that's actually used it.

It wont work at all, the ice will melt after a few minutes then the heat from the coal would be redirected through the water so the shisha wont be able to get hot enough to smoke, and plus you can only put such a little amont of shisha in it.

Pssh no. The ice is gonna melt any ways and its gonna take longer for the bowl to heat up. IMO, I think the only noticeable "cooling" of the smoke is when you put ice in the vase.

well for those that havent figured out the heat management at all and put to much coal on i could see how they would think they gained something since it kept it cooler but its just going to be wasting coals

A waste. Pure and simple. Once again just some ice in the base can cool your smoke nicely. Most of the times there is no reason to do even that.
