AOT is a great option to have. I prefer my harmony bowl over all. But after I have decided to use foil with the AOT it works great. My issue was I have superior coco coconut shell charcoal that run really hot. I placed a foil on the bottom of the AOT tray and poked the holes of the tray with a toothpick. Now the AOT works better for me. I would recommend getting coconut charcoals that do not run as hot as the once I have and you might not need the additional foil.
I've used this bowl at my friends house; she and her family prefer to use this bowl to do their smoking. I like it because you don't have to mess with foil constantly and it's pretty easy to clean. I would just say that over time, old tobacco gets stuck to the under charcoal grate. Some might disagree, but I like to take a fine steel wool and lightly scrub off old bits and wash it. Obviously not scrubbing too hard and wearing the top out. Just enough to get caked on junk off.
I personally dont like this product. Its made too thin and dissipates heat faster than more thicker heat management systems Ive use. I dont get the same quality of smoke in regards to flavor and thickness. Overrated!!!
i love the idea that i am not using aluminum foil , but i am not sure if this could keep the tobacco burning using a normal amount of charcoal
Great smoking Bowl, well-rounded performance. Very easy to clean and maintain. I'd highly recommend the Apple On Top Bowl!!!
I ordered the green color of Appleontop. You guys send me a black color. I don't like it.
This Apple on Top is a GREAT, stylish (I have it in black - looks great atop my hookah!)
- I admit I was proper Dubious when I picked this up on a bargain (E-Bay) but I now rarely use anything but! - Colour me Converted to the Apple! XD
If you're unsure I Deff say - GO FOR IT!
I purchased an Apple on Top bowl a month or two ago from my local smoke shop and I've been very happy with it. Smokes great and the flavor is awesome, I even smoked a bowl of Tangiers cane mint in it and it produced a great flavor for a long time. If you take some heat off of it when you can tell it's fully heated up, it stays hot but doesn't burn the shisha, you almost have to try and burn it to dull the taste. Packing it is a breeze, you just pack the shisha in and you're good to go, the rotating tray is awesome too. The only cons I've noticed are it goes through Shisha and coals like crazy, and it takes longer than my other bowls to heat up.
Excellent bowl. Buy it. Buy it now. No seriously. Not now... But right now! :)
new revolution on shisha market.... good

very good accessory for your hookah, allows the smoke last longer, I recommend
I absolutely love this bowl. I was a little hesitant on the price, but I have broken more than 4 vortex bowls in my lifetime, so in the long run I imagine this bowl will pay for itself multiple times over.
I love how easy it is to clean (no more shisha stuck to the ceramic bowl) and the fit of the upper piece makes it very easy to prevent your shisha from ever burning.
Bottom line: if you prefer vortex bowls and want the best one available (or you have a tendency to break the fragile middle piece while cleaning your bowl) - get this bowl.
This bowl is nice but i still prefer the lotus and the BR bowl combo.
I normally do not write reviews but I felt that this is needed. The apple on top bowl does everything that it clams to do. However the metal keeps the shisha to cool and doesnt allow for thick clouds. I use a Mya Bambino with 3 coconaras. Personally I think it is a waste of money and doesnt offer a pleasurable smoking experience.
I thought it was just gunna be a little dinky thing,but iI actually really like this product. This thing is nice and heavy. Aka sturdy af! I think this is gunna be the bowl that shall never come off ny hooka haha.
I got my Apple On Top bowl from you last month, in a word “OUTSTANDING”, the greatest invention since the wheel, the apple on top blows away any bowl I’ve ever had.
It does everything they say and more, I’m a 20 year machines by trade and I can honestly say that the workmanship is top notch, we all know that heat sinks are made out of aluminum and these guys figured out how to make a performance bowl out of it with-out needing a heat management.
The coal tray is made out of stainless steel, with a green silicon leaf handle that is easy to handle, you don’t need to walk back and forth with your tongs to pick up your HOT coal just put it in the tray and walk it to your bowl.
We all have broken glass, clay and ceramic bowl, now, no more breakage, on Instagram I’ve even seen a car parked on it.
Cleaning up was super easy, hot or cold you can wipe it off and it looks same as the day I bought it.
I took it to my local hookah lounge, and wow the attention was out of this world, I’ve made more friends because of this bowl then all my years.
I understand that they are making high end hoses, please keep us updated with that.
Thank you thehookah.com for introducing us to this great product.
