Hot Box are generally fairly simply made, yet are an effective, solid style of vaporizer. The vaporizers are constructed from tile or stone such as onyx, marble and fossil. They also come in colours such as Ebony Mother, Scarlet and Cobalt Blue. The tile boxes are painted in a huge variety of styles including flames, one colours, pictures of girls, spiders, Rasta, Rubik’s cube, money… you name it. They certainly offer some funky products, many are one-offs and custom artwork can be requested.
Hot Box herbal vaporizers claim that the stone and tile construction is patented, with part of that patent being a ‘highly engineered heat source allows the Hot Box to heat-up and sustain its optimal temperature more efficiently’.
The uses a ‘highly engineered ceramic nichrome heating element’. The Hot Box Vaporizer is used with standard glass vapor whips, or vapor wands as the manufacturer named them. This means that you would use the Hot Box Vaporizer with a glass vapor whip held to the heating element while you enjoyed your vaporizer inhalation.
The Hot Box aromatherapy attachment is available. Simply slide the attachment over the glass heat element and fill it about 1/3 full with your choice of incense oil. Do not fill the chamber to full. Wait for the smell of the oils to fill your room, replace the oil when required.
