      The Importance of Heat Management

      Like many hookah accessories, hookah tongs help make your smoke sessions more convenient. More importantly, they help your hookah taste fresh! There's no risk of burning yourself when you use hookah tongs, and they allow you to move your coals where needed.

      Heated coals are added to your hookah bowl to heat up shisha. However, your coals will be too hot to move by hand. Whether you're using a coal heater, your stove, or even a basic lighter, you'll need charcoal tongs to safely move your coals onto the bowl.

      Rotating your coals is also important for proper hookah heat management. Over the course of your hookah session, areas of your hookah bowl will become too hot, which can burn your shisha. This will affect the taste of your hookah, so you'll need to rotate your coals to other parts of the bowl to maximize freshness.
