That sucks man, those bowls aren't cheap either. Why don't you just buy two or three discounted egyptian bowls. That way if you break one its no big deal. In my experience the small phunnel and a traditional egyptian clay bowl smoke very similar to each other.

Well if one broke during shpping the contact the vendor that sent it to you. Most of the ones I use are willing to cover something of that nature.

I know how it feels buddy. My phunnel was almost one year old when I broke it a few weeks ago.

Simple solution:

We need someone to make a bowl...out of a non toxic, semi heat conductive, plastic or rubber.



Lol.

yeah...but metal bowls suck...we just need a polymer that mimics ceramic materials in important properties ^_^
...

tempered glass might work.

have you ever seen what happens when tempered glass gets a scratch/crack in it? if not youtube "prince ruperts drop"

you know how a car window (side) when smashed turns into 1000s of little rounded pieces, its because it is tempered (i.e. the glass is under extreme stress, the outer layer is cooled faster than the inner layer trapping in the stress, any breach of that layer which traps in the inner layer leads to a violent failure of the whole piece)

given tempered glass is extremely strong and can dent 1/4 inch steel but when it goes its not pretty.

as to metal, aluminum has a similar thermal coefficient as glass IIRC.

either way glass and ceramic are prone to cracks, metal is prone to dents and usually transfers heat in a different way

i dont know much about bullet proof (or as it is referred to in the industry "bullet resistant glass") but from a quick google search it looks like the usual BP glass is really layers of plastic and normal glass, but they do have some weird aluminum oxynitride that is transparent and pretty much bullet proof

i know there are some glasses that are crazy strong and probably are bullet proof but i think it is probably more cost efficient to buy a box of bowls lol

but did you check out the prince ruperts drops, they are awesome, reminds me i need to try and make some
