Glass Hookah Bowls – A Comparative Look

The Glass Mod Hookah Bowl is available in three different styles of standard egyptian shisha bowl, as well as four different styles of phunnel shisha bowl.

Pyrex Vortex Hookah Bowl

The Pyrex Vortex Bowl (also known as a low thermal expansion borosilicate glass) comes in the same size and design as the ceramic Vortex Bowl. The benefits of Pyrex over ceramic are heat resistance and a more even heat distribution. These sleek shisha bowls are available in Pyrex Vortex Smoke, Pyrex Vortex Blue, and Pyrex Vortex Black.

Round Glass Bubble Hookah Bowl

Round Glass Hookah Bowl For Shisha The Round Glass “Bubble” Phunnel Style Hookah Bowl holds up to 20g of shisha. This is not the standard bowl that will come with your Round Glass Hookah, rather it is an upgraded hookah bowl to be purchased separately. Not only does this all glass shisha bowl allow for fantastic hookah coal heat management, but the clear material allows you to actually see your smoke passing through the hookah bowl. This bowl has a ‘female’ fitting bowl base, which does not come with a frosted glass exterior, so it requires a glass hookah bowl adapter to work with a glass hookah. However, it is compatible with almost any standard (non-glass) hookah, with the aid of a mod hookah bowl grommet.

Lavoo Glass Hookah Bowl

Lavoo Glass shisha bowl This glass hookah bowl is as sturdy, reliable, and as classy as the line of Lavoo Hookahs that it hails from. With a ‘male fitting’ bowl stem, complete with frosted glass, this Lavoo shisha bowl fits perfectly in the Lavoo MP2, MP3, MP4, and MP5 hookahs. Want to use your favorite non-glass hookah bowl on your Lavoo hookah? No problem! Just pick up the Lavoo Bowl Converter, and you can have your favorite bowl hooked up to your glass hookah in no time!

All-glass hookahs are quickly becoming the most popular modern hookah design on the market. The glass-on-glass design eliminates the need for grommets along with any doubt about perfectly sealed connection points. You may be familiar with Fumo Hookahs, Lavoo Glass Hookahs, Roi Hookahs, but it’s time to introduce the newest glass hookah in town: The Round Glass Hookah line. Round Glass Hookahs come in nine completely unique models: Round Glass Dynasty, Round Glass Atom, Round Glass Saturn’s Moon, Round Glass Tornado Hookah, Round Glass Tower, Round Glass Melody, Round Glass Liberty, and the Round Glass Seven Ring Hookah.  These hookah designs are unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Additionally, each glass hookah downstem has a built-in smoke diffuser!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I place my order? Do you guys follow up with receipts or tracking numbers?

You will receive one email from us when you place your order which will contain your order confirmation. We will also send a second email with a tracking number as soon as your order ships out. If you have placed an order and have not received any of the two of these emails, please contact us so we can look into your order and make sure it’s processed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We strive to process and ship all orders within 24 hours of the time they are placed. Please note that your tracking number may not be immediately active when you first receive it.

To track an order you can track packages through your Hookah-Shisha.com account by clicking through this progression: “My Account” > “View Previous Orders” > “Order Details” > click the (red) tracking # found at the bottom (for UPS orders), and if the order was shipped via USPS, then you may cut and paste the tracking # listed on that order invoice to the USPS.com (and/or CanadaPost.com) websites. (note: if your order has not shipped yet then you will NOT see that tracking # show up on that screen.)

When will my order arrive?

Orders typically ship out 1-2 business days after they have been placed and entered our system. Depending on the shipping method chosen and the destination, it can take anywhere from 1-5 additional business days for domestic shipments to be completed. International shipments can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks, depending on the customs process in your particular country.

Please note that Express International shipping does NOT bypass the customs screening process, but it will expedite the amount of time it takes to reach your country.

How do I verify my age?

The easiest way to verify your age would be for you to snap a photo of yourself holding your government issued ID and send that over to orderverification@hookah-shisha.com. Once we age verify your account, you will be permanently verified on our website, so you will not be required to go through the age verification process every time you order.

Do you guys have discreet shipping?

We strive to ship our packages as discreetly as possible. Your order will be shipped in a plain brown box and the shipping label will read as “Romman Inc”, but at this time we do not have any methods to ship our packages any more discreetly than that.

Do you accept any forms of payment other than Credit Card and Money Order?

Currently, we do accept personal checks. You must include a printed copy of your order invoice, write the order (or invoice) number on the check, and include a copy of a government-issued photo ID card which displays your birth date. We do not accept PayPal at this time due to restrictions Paypal has with working with Tobacco retail stores.

I’m worried my order will break in transit, how do you package your hookah pipes?

We take great care to ensure your order arrives in perfect condition – 99% of our orders arrive on time and undamaged. Hookah bases and tobacco bowls are wrapped in bubble wrap and the entire order is surrounded by Styrofoam peanut packaging.

Even with the great care we take to ensure safe travel to you, it’s always possible damage may occur in shipping. For this reason, all of our shipments are fully insured and we will replace any products that arrive damaged or broken. If an item does arrive damaged, please follow the steps listed below.

What do I do if an order arrives damaged, or breaks upon setup?

Despite the attention and care we devote to hand-packing each individual order, unforeseen circumstances while an order is in transit can damage the package contents. If something arrives damaged, follow these steps to ensure the fastest and most thorough possible service:
1. Take pictures of the damaged item(s) with a digital camera or camera-phone for documentation (this also helps us when filing a damage claim with the shipping carrier.)

2. Attach the digital pictures to an email.

3. Include a description of the problem in the email along with the order number (or invoice number) and the address to ship replacement parts to.

4. Send the email to info@hookah-shisha.com. After we receive the email, we’ll reply back quickly to notify you of the actions we take or to request additional information.

What if something is wrong with my order?

We strive for the highest level of accuracy in order fulfillment. Our orders are triple checked to ensure they leave in perfect order, but occasionally mistakes are made. We will be happy to correct any mistake we make and we ask that you contact us immediately upon discovery of any errors.

Hookah Spring Cleaning – Make Your Old Hookah New Again

Spring has officially sprung! The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and it’s likely that the hookah you have been smoking inside all winter long has not seen the light of the sun in a while. Before you take that hookah out on the patio, to a picnic, or to a friend’s backyard, let’s give that hookah a good spring cleaning to make sure that it shines brightly, tastes great, and smokes like a dream.

Step 1: Clean that dirty hookah!

First things first, let’s get your hookah clean as can be. A thorough cleaning of your hookah stem, bowl, base, and hose will banish all lingering flavors, and general crud to the land of wind and ghosts. We’ve covered the specifics of giving your hookah a good thorough cleaning before, but if you are unfamiliar with the process, check out the blogs below for some tips and guides.

How to Clean A Hookah

How to Clean A Hookah Hose


Step 2: Polish your hookah stem and make it shine like new!

Now that we’ve cleaned out the inside of your hookah and all of it’s components to ensure the cleanest, and tastiest, smoke possible, let’s take a look at the outside of the hookah. The first thing we need to determine is what your hookah stem is made of. Generally hookahs are going to be made from either brass, stainless steel, glass, or in some cases engraved cloisonne style metal. Once you have determined what your hookah is made of (quick tip: if you aren’t sure if your stem is stainless steel or brass, pick it up. If it feels hollow, or light for it’s size, it’s probably stainless. If it is a solid piece, and feels very heavy for it’s size, it’s likely brass) we can then determine the best way to shine up your hookah.

Glass Hookahs – We recommend using a normal household glass cleaner on the outside. Do not use this to clean the hookah on the inside, just use it to make the outside as clean as can be.

Cloisonne Hookahs (such as the Mya Bambino or Mya Colossus) – Use a soft rag, or in a best case scenario a jeweler’s cloth, and clean the cloisonne by gently rubbing in small, circular motions. If the cloth becomes dirty, replace it. We do not recommend using cleaning solutions on Cloisonne metalwork.

Brass Hookahs – These are the trickiest to clean as brass hookahs sometimes come “Oxidized” and cleaning the oxidized metal too vigorously can remove the dark, oxidized look people like. If your hookah is oxidized, just clean very lightly at first to see how it will react. First step – mix some mild detergent with warm water. Wet a soft cloth in the soapy water and gently remove any dirt or residue from the outside of your stem. Step 2 – Acquire some brass polish (should be readily available online or in a local store) and apply some to a soft cloth. Gently rub the polish into the brass (note: do not polish the downstem of the hookah, just the part which is outside of the base when the hookah is set up) and when the polish has been applied, use a dry cloth to buff the brass to a high shine.

Stainless Steel Hookahs – Clean the surface of your hookah with a soft cloth and either a mixture of mild detergent and warm water, or a small amount of white vinegar. When the hookah is clean, polish it to a nice shine with a clean, soft cloth. Some people use a tiny amount of glass cleaner, olive oil, or baby oil to add an extra bit of shine.

Step 3: Enjoy your rejuvenated hookah!

Set your hookah up with some fresh water in the base, a freshly cleaned hose, and a freshly cleaned bowl loaded up with your favorite shisha flavors, and enjoy! The weather is starting to get real nice, so we recommend sitting outside on a cool spring afternoon or evening and enjoying your hookah in nature. Happy smoking everybody!

There Is A Shisha Smoke Diffuser For Every Hookah


What Does a Hookah Diffuser Do?

A hookah diffuser is a piece of plastic that can be placed on the end of your hookah downstem that helps to break up the air bubbles moving through your hookah water so that you get a quieter, smoother pull every time. These are great, simple upgrades that you can make to your hookah, but you must make sure that you’re selecting the correct diffuser to fit your hookah. This quick hookah diffuser review will guide you in the right direction!

Heba Filter Hookah Diffuser

For most standard hookahs, like a Mya Saray or an Egyptian hookah, a Heba Diffuser will work great and make a huge difference. Simply slide it on to the end of your hookah downstem, and start up a hookah session!

Diffuser for Khalil Mamoon Hookahs and Nammor Hookahs

Khalil Mamoon and Nammor hookahs are known for their quality and durability, however standard Heba Diffusers will not fit on these downstems. Luckily, there are options!

Pharaoh-Hookah-Diffuser The Pharaoh Diffuser has a 6 stem percolator that not only seriously enhances your bubble output, but it comes with two flexible grommets. The larger mouth grommet will definitely fit your KM or Nammor Hookahs, and the smaller one can be used for any other hookah model you may have!




Another diffuser option for your Khalil Mamoon or Nammor hookah is to use Roi Hookah Beads. Simply add one teaspoon of these tiny gel beads to your base water, and watch them expand to create an aesthetically pleasing hookah smoke diffusing device. Simply throw the hookah diffuser beads away when you’re done, or reuse them during your next hookah session!

roi hookah beads

The final option you have when it comes to diffusing your hookah smoke, is to purchase a high class glass hookah that comes with a built in smoke diffuser to the glass stem. Most models of the Lavoo Glass Hookahs and Roi Glass hookahs come standard with a glass-on-glass downstem that has pre-prepared holes on the bottom that act as a diffuser. These hookahs are a beautiful choice if you are looking for a top shelf hookah that whispers while you smoke.
