We will walk you through the steps so that you can create your very own apple bowl!
What is an apple bowl for shisha smoking?
An apple bowl is a type of hookah bowl that is made out of an apple. The apple is cut in half or thirds and then the inside is scooped out, leaving a bowl shape. Apple bowls are a popular choice for hookah smoking because they are said to produce sweeter smoke than other types of bowls.
The pros and cons of making an apple hookah bowl
When it comes to smoking shisha, there are a lot of different types of fruits and vegetables you can use as a bowl. But apples are a great option because they're structurally sound and they have a large surface area. This means that the heat will be dispersed, which will give you better flavor and more smoke. Plus, apples are easy to find and they're typically inexpensive.
However, there are also some drawbacks to using an apple hookah bowl. For one, apples are porous, so they can absorb the flavor of tobacco. This can make it difficult to change flavors in the same session with the same apple if you want to try something new. Additionally, apples can make it harder to warm up shisha, so it might take longer to get the perfect smoke.
While an apple is a great option for a hookah bowl, it's ultimately up to you whether you want to use one.

How to make a bowl out of an apple?
Do you want to learn how to make a bowl out of an apple and smoke shisha? Then, you are in the right place. Here, we will show you how to make a bowl out of an apple. So, let's get started!
Step 1: Core the apple.
Use an apple corer or a sharp knife to remove the core from the center of the apple. Be careful not to cut too deeply or you will puncture the bottom of the apple.
Step 2: Cut off the top third of the apple.
To do this, simply cut around the circumference of the apple, about one-third of the way down from the top. You can use a paring knife or a serrated knife for this step.
Step 3: Scoop out the inside flesh of the apple.
Use a spoon or your hands to remove the flesh from inside the apple. Be sure to leave a thick wall around the outside of the apple so that it will hold its shape when smoked.
Step 4: Dry the inside of the apple.
Use a paper towel or clean cloth to remove any moisture from inside the apple bowl. This will help prevent your shisha from getting too wet and won’t affect the flavor of your smoke.
Step 5: Line the base of the apple with aluminum foil.
Cut a piece of aluminum foil that is slightly larger than the circumference of the opening at the top of your apple bowl. Place this over the opening and press it down so that it is tight against the sides of the apples. This will create a seal that will prevent any smoke from escaping.
Now that you have your apple bowl, it is time to fill it with shisha!
How to pack an apple bowl to smoke shisha?
One of the great things about smoking shisha out of an apple bowl is that you can pack it however you want. So, if you want to try something new or experiment with different flavors, this is the perfect way to do it. Here are a few steps on how to pack your apple bowl for the best results.
Step 1: Wet your tobacco (optional)
Not all tobacco flavors are wet enough to stick together on their own, so you may need to add a little water before packing your bowl. To do this, simply place your tobacco in a bowl and add enough water to wet it without making it soggy. Then, use your hands to mix it together until all the tobacco is evenly moistened.
If you're using a wetter tobacco, you can skip this step.
Step 2: Fill your bowl with tobacco
Once your tobacco is ready, it's time to fill your apple hookah bowl. For this step, you'll want to use about enough tobacco to fill the bowl halfway.
Step 3: Press your tobacco gently
Once you have your tobacco in the apple bowl, use your fingers to pack it down gently. You don't want to press it too hard or else the tobacco will be too difficult to draw air through.
Step 4: Add foil and coal
Now, it's time to add your foil and coal. For this step, you'll want to use a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil that is large enough to cover the entire opening of your bowl. Cut the foil so that it's big enough and then place it over the top of the apple hookah bowl.
Next, use a pair of tongs to place your coal on top of the foil. You'll want to use two or three coals for this step.
Once your coal is in place, it's time to smoke!

5 tips for smoking shisha out of an apple bowl
While smoking shisha out of an apple bowl is pretty easy, there are a few things you can do to make sure your experience is even better. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Tip 1: Don't overpack your bowl
When packing your apple bowl, it's important not to overdo it. If you pack your bowl too tightly, the tobacco will be difficult to draw air through and you won't get as much smoke.
Tip 2: Use an HMD instead of foil
If you want to get more flavor from your tobacco, we recommend using an HMD instead of foil. HMDs are made of stainless steel or aluminum and have small holes that allow the flavor of your tobacco to come through while still keeping the heat in.
The first HMD to hit the market was the Kaloud Lotus 1. Since then, we've created new versions like the Kaloud Lotus 1 Plus and the Kaloud Lotus 3. Thus, we suggest you explore our full line of HMDs.
Tip 3: Use good-quality charcoal
If you want your shisha to taste the best way possible, it's important to use good-quality charcoal. We recommend using natural coconut coals because they burn for a long time and don't add any flavor to your tobacco.
Tip 4: Use high-quality tongs with your apple bowl
When handling your apple bowl and charcoal, it's important to use high quality tongs. This will help you avoid any potential accidents and make sure your shisha smoking experience is as safe as possible.
Our top pick for tongs is the Kaloud Vestara Tongs. These tongs are made of high-quality materials and have a wide variety of features that make them perfect for use with every hookah and hookah bowl.
Tip 5: Let your tobacco sit for a while after packing
Once you've packed your bowl, it's important to let the tobacco sit for a few minutes before smoking. This will give the tobacco time to absorb the moisture from the air and expand, which will make it easier to draw air through when you're smoking.
Now that you know how to make an apple bowl and how to smoke shisha out of it, you're ready to enjoy a delicious hookah session. Just remember to keep these tips in mind and you'll be sure to have a great time!
