Hookah Bowl Purchase Guide

Hookah bowls (also known as shisha bowls) come in different shapes, sizes and materials; and can have a big impact on the quality of your shisha smoking session. When shopping for a new hookah bowl, it is good to note that the right bowl shouldn't be based on price alone, as each hookah head has its pros and cons. This article will explore different types of hookah bowls in order to assist you in your next purchase!


PHUNNEL HOOKAH BOWL

A Phunnel bowl does not have holes at the bottom. Instead, Phunnel bowls have an open hole spike at the middle of the bowl. This design stops the flavour juices from dripping down the stem and into the hookah vase.

Pros

  • Better Heating Of The Shisha. The foil and the charcoals are kept at a distance from the shisha flavor, due to the spike in the middle, thus, it is difficult to overheat and burn the flavor.

  • Maintains Shisha Juices For A Longer Time. Phunnel Bowls do not have holes at the bottom and hold the flavour juices for a longer time. Juice can not drain through the holes.

  • Variety & Cost. Many variations of the phunnel bowl are available at costly prices.

Shisha Club Recommendation

  • Oblako Glazed Phunnel Bowl. The Oblako Glazed bowl is topped for durability, allowing the bowl to maintain its perfect qualities and appearance even after long-term use. It comes in a variety of colors and requires about 18-23gms of flavor in a medium-sized bowl.

EGYPTIAN HOOKAH BOWL


Most hookahs are sold with what is known as an Egyptian-style hookah bowl. These bowls are mostly made of clay and can be either glazed or unglazed. Egyptian Bowls are the most widely used shisha bowls, and usually contain 4-6 holes in a cross pattern in the base. Egyptian shisha bowls can be used with foil, and screens; providing a cheap and versatile option for shisha smokers.

Pros

  • Variety & Cost. Low cost. Widely available and cheap bowl.

Shisha Club Recommendation

  • Mya Ceramic Hookah Bowl. Mya hookah heads are a fan favorite, as they will fit any Egyptian hookahs. They have the capacity to hold between 15-20 grams of shisha flavour.


VORTEX HOOKAH BOWL

Typical clay Vortex hookah bowls are shaped like a doughnut mold, with a stump in the center containing 4 or 5 holes to let the smoke pass through. Vortex Bowls do not have holes at the bottom and hold the flavour juices for a longer time. Compatible with foil, screens, and chimney sets; Vortex hookah heads are an improvement over Egyptian hookah bowls as less molasses will drip down the stem.

Pros

  • Longer Smoke Times. Prevents flavour from falling down the stem.

  • Variety & Cost. Low cost. Widely available and cheap bowl.

Shisha Club Recommendation

  • Sahara Vortex Ceramic Bowl. The Sahara Vortex Ceramic Bowl is designed to avoid leakages and locks in all the shisha flavors. This gives a clean and longer smoking experience as it burns the shisha at slow rates. This hookah bowl is about 3.5 inches in height, with a 3-inch diameter and a 1-inch opening. The Sahara Vortex Bowl also comes in many colours

All Of The Bowls Are Available At www.shishaclub.ca, Or In Our Store, at 429 Wilson Avenue, North York, Ontario, M3H1T5
