Vortex 1.5 Hookah Bowl

After so many years of being on the market, the standard Vortex bowl has received a slight upgrade, we present to you the Vortex 1.5 bowl. Currently the Vortex bowl serves as the next step from an Egyptian bowl, these bowls brought in a new form of air flow to its users. Similar to a Phunnel bowl, the vortex bowls feature a central spire but this portion contains no vertical air channels. Instead the Vortex bowl features 4 symmetrical holes for airflow, and one flare opening at the underside. If you want to see more of a comparison with the phunnel bowls, check out our blog on the differences between the Vortex and Phunnel Bowls.

So What Does 1.5 Mean?

What could possibly change within a bowl that has been around for so long? Airflow. The minds behind the Vortex bowl heard the cries for larger airflow holes, and made sure to give these bowls the proper assessment. The Vortex 1.5 still contains 4 air channels, but this time around they're even more symmetrical and a much wider gauge. This new batch of bowls also features some new colors, and an even glaze to ensure a snug fit on your grommet.

The Vortex 1.5 bowl contains a 3 inch diameter, with a height of 3.25 inches. Depending on your tobacco of choice and smoking preference, you should have no problem loading around 20-25 grams of shisha inside this bowl. This bowl can be used in combination with the Flavor Saver, or just good ole' tin foil.

Unlock the Airflow

If you have never gone through the process of loading a Vortex bowl, don't worry it's about as simple as an Egyptian bowl. The standard Vortex bowl will utilize a sprinkle pack method, and this will allow for an even cook throughout your session. Since the 1.5 contains larger holes you can still use a sprinkle method, just make sure that there is no loose tobacco covering any of the air channels. In the test session that we've had with the vortex 1.5 bowl, the sprinkle method worked great but adding a little more shisha while applying some pressure away from the spire created remarkable sessions.


Note: Because the bottom opening on the Vortex Hookah Bowl is slightly larger than most traditional bowls, it's recommended to use a thick Mod Bowl Grommets for the best fit for your hookah.

"Poor quality"
Jordan Edwards on Saturday, March 18, 2017 9:40:02 PM

Be very careful when using this bowl - Within a week of buying, it already broke - The airflow was pretty good, but it is extremely fragile to both heat and pressure because it's made from cheap materials - So be gentle when trying to put it on - Another issue I had with it was that it never properly fit my hookah - I even bought the proper adapter for it, but it was still quite loose - The inside of the bowl itself isn't very large either -

"bad fit for kaloud -"
Anthony Reader on Saturday, December 17, 2016 5:05:37 PM

Thought it was a good idea, so bought 3 bowls to use them with the Kaloud - Found out the middle is built too high, so the Kaloud never gets a good seal - Tried all three, all three fail, so it wasn't a flaw with just one - Had to wrap the bowl and kaloud with tinfoil to get a seal and decent smoke - Now, I just use tinfoil with them and recommend that no one buy them if they intend to use them with the kaloud -

"This bowl is underated -"
Michael J Gomez Calderon on Friday, September 02, 2016 10:59:52 AM

This bowl is a way better than the last version of the vorted and will help you achieve the best airflow without wont burning your sisha ever - I probably put 3 grams of sisha inside the bowl and spread it really good, then i put the foil on top and punch it - Later i place the coco naras on top and after 3 minutes i was getting big clouds and the session would last 45 minutes to one hour - Dont be discourage by the lotus clouds users, all you need is good heat management techniques and you'll be good to go -

"Nice upgrade from original Vortex"
Cody on Saturday, June 11, 2016 3:42:25 AM

After using the original vortex for a few years, i figured i'd give the new model a shot - Yes the holes may be a bit lower, but as long as you keep them clear after packing it shouldn't be an issue - I just got 2 hours out of one bowl with great airflow and clean flavor the whole way - Granted i use foil and not the lotus system, but you shouldn't base your reviews on a separate product - Great bowl, would buy again -

"A good bowl"
Justin Baumer on Sunday, May 08, 2016 11:01:25 PM

I got this for the hookah I bought as my first hookah, a Super Nova single hose rotatory - It is a very nice bowl to use, and even cleans very well - A little dish soap and a gentle scrubbing will take even mint flavor off during cleaning - I am very happy with it -

"holes to low, stem opening too big"
Louis Unkrich on Thursday, February 25, 2016 11:41:01 AM

DO NOT BUY this bowl - the vortex 1 - 5 requires 2 bowl grommets, thick mod and clear thinner, and it still shoves way up in the bowl making it hard to get out to clean - Also the holes are much lower in the center tower than the old vortex bowl - - - POS - - waste of money -

"Nothing Special, But Good"
Eric on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 5:11:44 PM

I had the original Vortex bowl before this one, so I am able to compare these pretty well - I was super excited to try out this new 1 - 5 bowl, because I really liked my Vortex - However, I wasn't really that impressed with the difference - Maybe that's because I had high hopes - But it is a slightly noticeable improvement as far as air flow and smoke density goes - One thing to note is that while the holes are bigger, they are still pretty low in the bowl so this makes for smaller packs - This is fine for me as I don't use a lot of shisha per session - If you purchase from a shop, you may want to check or request online for one with holes higher up on the stem if that's something you're worried about - Or just be sure not to cover up the holes while packing and you're in for a solid smoke every time!

"Don't let the negative reviews fool you -"
Travis on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 11:16:07 PM

This bowl is a fantastic bowl, better than the original vortex bowl, much easier to take a draw from the hookah than the original - This thing is highly under rated, because a few people couldn't use this with the kaloud lotus but to be honest that should not be a deal breaker -

"Underrated"
Kyle on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 11:24:37 PM

This is probably my favorite bowl and i'm sad that i come on to this website to see that there are people that leave bad reviews for the whole product based on its compatability with another product - I love this bowl and would certainly recommend to anyone!

"Personal Bowl"
The Wicked Weasel on Monday, October 19, 2015 8:25:55 PM

Lotus does not fit too well, although the bowl is great with 3 titanium coals and 2 sheets of tin foil - If your looking for a bowl to go great with the lotus, I recommend the Kaloud Samsaris bowl first and the Harmony Bowl second -

"Good with some flaws -"
Anthony Reader on Wednesday, October 07, 2015 1:47:27 PM

While in general I think the product delivers, there is what I believe to be a design flaw when it comes to using the Kaloud - The center part is just a little too tall and the kaloud sits on top at a slight angle because of it - This tips the kaloud and prevents it from getting a good seal - Without that seal sometimes the smoke can be a bit tricky - I bought 3 of them thinking they would be perfect, used one of them, and was close to sending it back, but it seems to be ok, just sometimes looks a bit unstable - We have burned out carpet before from a loose bowl and were very careful and wary of the new bowls but so far they seem to work out ok - I just wish the middle was slightly less tall so that the kaloud could fit on the top perfectly level

"Great Bowl!"
Christopher Sarver on Monday, October 05, 2015 1:20:31 PM

Pros: The bigger air-holes allow for better airflow with less chance of tobacco getting stuck covering it - It works perfectly with the kaloud lotus - Cons: not really a con but the bowl is deeper than my last bowl causing me to use more shisha per session -

"Fits but smaller -"
Mitchell Lumbreras on Monday, October 05, 2015 1:16:07 PM

Received my new Vortex for homecoming weekend - while it did fit my Kaloud Lotus perfectly i feel they shrunk the amount of sisha that you can fit - perfect for solo or duo smokers but for a party you'll consistently be repacking -

"Meh"
Steven Salinas on Monday, October 05, 2015 12:11:16 PM

First off, the Lotus doesn't fit this bowl very well, yeah it works but you are constantly checking to make sure the Lotus isn't about to fall off - Second, it's hard to get a good amount of shisha in the bowl due to the holes in the center spire being so low -

"NOT a better Lotus Fit"
Ryan Mcadam on Friday, September 25, 2015 8:09:31 PM

As a fan of the vortex bowls, I have always been disappointed with their fit with the Kaloud Lotus, an excellent heat management system - So I jumped at the new Vortex 1 - 5 which was touted as "working with the Kaloud Lotus" - Lemme tell you folks, it DOESN'T - The lotus fits on the bowl but the top spire is STILL TOO TALL and the lotus can easily slide off if the hookah if jostled at all - Im very dissatisfied with this product - It seems no different to me in terms of compatibility with the lotus, so if that's your selling point, walk away -
