HOOKAH BOWLS FAQ
What size hookah bowl do I need?
The width of a bowl becomes a factor only when you intend to use a Heat Management Device (HMD). In this case, the diameter to the bowl should be 3” or the bowl should be marketed as one that works with HMDs.
Otherwise, a bowl's width may any size but what is more important is how many grams of tobacco the bowl accommodates. If you smoke for 1 hour, then a smaller bowl that holds around 15 grams will be a better choice than a larger bowl that can hold 25 grams.
What should I do if a hookah bowl does not fit securely on my hookah?
Usually, this can be solved by using the right bowl grommet. Not all grommets are equal, some are thicker and others thinner. However, some bowls ports may simply be too large or too small to fix. In this case, finding a bowl with a proper port width to fit your hookah stem is the best remedy.
There is always extra tobacco in my hookah bowl after smoking. What can I do?
One cause might be how you’re packing your bowl. But if that is not it, then your bowl is simply using more tobacco than your session requires. In this case, try downsizing to a bowl that packs fewer grams of tobacco.
Do all hookah bowls work with HMDs?
Not all bowls are compatible with Heat Management Devices. When purchasing a new bowl, make sure it is marketed to work with HMDs.
How do I prevent getting that burnt black stuff sticking on my bowl?
No matter how you pack your bowl, eventually the buildup of burnt ingredients will appear. Clean your bowl thoroughly after each use with warm water and a sponge to reduce buildup and keep your bowl looking new.
