Your Guide To Buying a Hookah

By Yehudah Posnick

    Smoking tobacco in a hookah, despite its origins in the 1500s in either India or Persia, has become popular in the Western countries as well, due to its exotic nature. Hookah smoking was always considered a status symbol, as well as forming part of a ritual or custom, to some extent. In the hookah, hookah tobacco, also called “shisha” (or a tobacco-free substitute), is heated by coals. The smoke of the tobacco is then drawn, by inhaling from a hookah hose, through water. The water cools and humidifies the smoke, which is then inhaled. You can get hookahs with only one hose, for one person to smoke, or with as many as four hoses, for four people to smoke together.

    We've put together this guide to help you select the best hookah that answers to your needs. It'll help you:

    • Choose the right type of hookah,

    • See useful tips about that type of hookah,    

    • Read reviews of different brands of hookah, and what customers are saying,

    • Select the right brand of hookah, and

    • Compare prices and find the best deals.

    • 1-Hose Hookah: This is a hookah with a single hose, for one person to smoke. If smoke has collected in the hookah bowl and become “stale”, there may be a purge valve, through which you can blow out the stale smoke, by blowing into the hookah hose.

    • Multi-Hose Hookah: There are hookahs that have attachments for 2 or even 4 people to smoke at once. The use of the purge valve is different in this case: all the other hoses must be plugged up, except for one. Blowing into the one remaining hose will drive the stale smoke out of the hookah.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Metal ball in opening of hookah pipe: You’ll notice that there is another outlet, opposite where you attach the hose. This outlet is sealed with a small ball bearing. This is a one-way valve to prevent air from coming into the hookah’s base, but at the same time, it allows smoke to be blown out, if the smoke happens to be too intense. You simply blow gently through the hose (instead of inhaling), and the smoke in the base will be forced out through this valve. (But do not blow with too much force--it can cause water to enter the pipe.)

    • Grommets--The seals between parts of the hookah should be airtight, so that the smoke can concentrate in the glass bowl. You will see grommets being sold, that help you fit the hookah pieces together, to keep air from entering. Some say that they prefer just using masking tape when necessary, to fit the parts together.

    • Parts of the hookah: The hookah consists of the following parts:

      • Glass vase/bowl--This is used to hold the water. It is advised not to fill it with too much water, because then it will take more effort to inhale the smoke from the hookah.

      • Shaft with downstem--This descends into the water in the bowl. Upon inhaling, air is drawn through the coals,  burning the tobacco. The smoke then descends down the shaft, into the water, and is finally drawn through the hose.

      • Synthetic leather hose--This is where you inhale the smoke. There are separate mouthpieces that you can buy, which are perhaps more hygienic, if you share the hookah with others.

      • Ceramic bowl--This is where you insert the shisha, the tobacco (or tobacco substitute) that you want to smoke. Some hookahs use a vortex bowl, which is designed so that the tobacco’s juices do not descend down the hookah’s shaft.

      • Ashtray--There is a plate underneath the ceramic bowl, which catches the ashes from the burning coals.

      • Tongs to move the coals--A burning hookah coal is extremely hot (between 350-450 degrees Fahrenheit), and can cause third-degree burns if it comes in contact with the skin. Use a pair of tongs or tweezers to place the burning coal on the hookah, as well as to maneuver it afterwards.  

      • Windscreen (or "Windcover")--You can buy a hookah with a screen that fits over the coals. This slows down the burning rate of the coals, so that you can have a longer smoking experience. It also incidentally protects you from getting scalded from one of the burning coals.

    • Different heights to hookahs: Sahara Smoke sells hookahs that are 61 cm, 76 cm, or even 104 cm high. Others, such as by GStar, are only 28 cm high.

    • Don't    light with a petrol derivative:     A coal lit with a petrol derivative, such as gasoline, can produce     an uncontrollable flame. Also, the gasoline flame will affect the taste of the tobacco smoke.

    • Smoke in a well-ventilated room:Since the smoke contains carbon monoxide, it can be dangerous to smoke in an enclosed space. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated, by leaving the windows open.    

    • Never leave the burning coals unattended: When you have finished smoking, be sure to extinguish the coals. Also, be sure to keep them out of the reach of children!
