Beaker Bongs

Beaker-shaped water pipes are characterized by their wide base and straight neck, resembling a laboratory beaker. This design offers several advantages:

  • Stability: The broad base provides a lower center of gravity, making them less prone to tipping over compared to narrower designs.
  • Capacity: They can hold a larger volume of liquid compared to other styles. This allows for more efficient cooling, potentially resulting in a smoother experience.
  • Filtration: The shape allows for increased interaction between the liquid and the processed air, potentially aiding in the removal of impurities.


What are beaker bongs?

Beaker bongs are a type of water pipe used for smoking tobacco or other herbs. They are named after their shape, which resembles a beaker or Erlenmeyer flask. Beaker bongs consist of a main body, a downstem, a bowl, and a mouthpiece.

How do beaker bongs work?

The main body of a beaker bong is wider at the base and gradually narrows toward the top. This design makes it more stable than other types of water pipes and less likely to tip over. The downstem is a tube that extends from the bottom of the main body into the water, which filters and cools the smoke. The bowl is where the tobacco or cannabis is placed and ignited. Finally, the mouthpiece is where the user inhales the smoke.

What makes beaker bongs good?

Beaker bongs are popular among smokers because of their large capacity and smooth hits. The wider base allows for more smoke to be filtered through the water, resulting in a cooler and less harsh inhale. Additionally, the larger capacity of the main body allows for larger hits, making it a favourite among experienced smokers.

What types of beaker bongs are available?

Beaker bongs come in a variety of sizes, materials, and designs. Some are made of glass, while others are made of silicone or acrylic. Some have elaborate designs or added features, such as ice notches or percolators, which further enhance the smoking experience.

Beaker Bongs

Beaker bongs get their name from the science laboratory equipment. You know the ones in movies right? The glass beaker equipment the evil genius uses to make a chemical that takes over the world. If only the evil genius found beaker bongs instead, they could just chill out.

These bongs are significantly different from straight tube bongs or bubble bongs for a few reasons.

Firstly, lots of bongs can be very front heavy but beaker bongs have a sturdy bottom with a good centre of gravity. So if your house has clumsy roommates, dogs, or cats, this might be a more suited option. Naturally, the thicker the glass, the heavier the bong. We advise getting the thickest glass you can afford as they'll last that much longer.

Secondly, most beaker bongs get narrower at the top meaning you're much less likely to get water in your mouth. Tasting bong water while your taking a hit ruins your bong experience and tastes truly horrible! Beakers offer a very useful way of avoiding that.

Third, beaker bongs often have a ice catcher compartment. We always recommend choosing any bong with an ice catcher compartment because it significantly reduces the smoke temperature. This means its healthier for your lungs and you can get bigger hits. Beakers almost always have this compartment so we suggest making the most out of all the bongs features. Beakers also have a large space for water additionally cooling your smoke down for a much smoother hit than straight bongs.

Finally, concentrate beaker bongs are often considerably smaller. If you have a big bong and you vaporize oil through it, you can loose a lot of your dab along the way through percolators and stems etc. With smaller rigs, you can get pretty much all your oil in one big hit. Beaker dabbing rigs are a good choice because they're far more stable than recyclers and you can fit more water in them.
