Hookah Charcoal Burners
And the hookah gods said let there be fire!
The most important tool in the world of hookah isn’t the hookah or the shisha, it’s the coal. Let’s be honest you can’t enjoy a hookah session without a little heat, because who likes a non functional hookah? The greatest hookah sessions are achieved by using natural coconut coals that have been cooked until they are glowing red. For many hookah enthusiasts lighting up coals can be the most therapeutic part of starting a session.
You don’t have to settle for just one type of coal, because there are a wide variety of coals on the market to choose from so be sure to check out all the hookah charcoal options that are available. The coals are only one part of this puzzle, but the most important question we have to ask ourselves is how will you light them? Lucky you, we have compiled a list of the best hookah coal burners on the market to help you make the right decision.

The Fumari hookah coal burner is a small upgrade from the Standard Single Coil, this is a popular charcoal burner of choice for hookah lounges.

The coils of the burner are raised slightly from the ash tray allowing optimal airflow underneath the coals for an even cook.
The metal framework design allows the burner to be almost cool to the touch while operating. We don’t encourage that you to touch your burner while it’s on, but feel free to use the side handles if you feel the need to move it. The handles can also be used in the clean process, by holding the handles you can empty any charcoal ash into the appropriate dispense area.
