How to use hookah foil

Place the hookah foil over the hookah bowl, making sure it is tight and secure. If you are using non-perforated hookah foil, then use a hookah poke or use a needle to poke a few small holes in the hookah foil to allow enough air to flow through while keeping the heat evenly distributed. Finally, hot charcoal is placed on the shisha foil and the shisha is allowed to heat up.

Hookah foil features

Hookah foil has good moisture resistance and oxidation resistance, which can effectively protect tobacco from moisture and oxidation. At the same time, aluminum foil also has good thermal conductivity and heat dissipation, which prevents soot from entering the hookah, can help the tobacco to be heated evenly, and increase the taste and quality.

Can household aluminum foil replace hookah foil?

First off, household aluminum foil and hookah foil share many similarities, but they also have some important differences. Hookah foil is thicker than household aluminum foil. This also determines that thinner household aluminum foil, exposed to burning shisha charcoal, cannot be maintained for a long time.

On the other hand, the size of the hookah foil is designed according to the size of the hookah bowl, and usually needs to be punched, which also determines that the hookah foil is more efficient and convenient to use than household aluminum foil.

So while kitchen foil can be a good substitute in a pinch, household foil is generally not recommended for prolonged hookah use.
