Believe it or not, the materials used for your dry herb oven can make a big difference in the vapor quality you get. There are three main oven materials used: ceramic, stainless steel, and glass.
► Ceramic ovens are high quality. Because this material is inert, it will not add any flavors to your vapor aside from the purity of your dry herb. This material is also, however, quite fragile so you must be careful how you set your vape down. In addition, ceramic ovens are also very porous which can make cleaning a hassle.
► Stainless steel ovens are also inert, so they preserve the purity of your herb’s flavor. Unlike ceramic, stainless steel is not porous, so it is very easy to clean. However, stainless steel ovens are more expensive and heavier for vapes.
► Glass ovens deliver superior quality. These are inert, nonporous, and easily replaceable. However, glass is extremely fragile – so you’re oven is likely to break if you’re clumsy.
?Note: If, for some reason, you run across a vape that uses an oven made out of plastic – avoid it! Plastic adds a terrible, artificial flavor to your vapor. In addition to unenjoyable vapor, plastic ovens usually do not stand up to heat very well. All in all, for the sake of your health, avoid plastic.
