What is a Steamroller pipe?
As you can tell from what we had to say about the experience above, steamrollers are a complete change in the world of normal glass hand pipes. Glass Steamrollers provide you a way to get a massive rip from your piece, in a way that the normal spoon pipe is not capable of achieving. How exactly? Well, the secret is all in the shape.
The classic steamroller pipe is in the shape of a long cylinder. This long cylinder has three openings in total. One on the front, that is the mouthpiece. One on the back, which is a bigger opening that is the carb. And one that is in the bowl. That’s it. That is the steam roller pipe. It gets so much hype because this massive cylinder shape allows you to get the maximum amount of smoke out of each bowl. The huge carb that is placed on the end of the pipe, allows you to control a huge amount of air that will clear your piece after each rip.
So no, a steam roller is not a train. Nor an old boat to get you across the river. But an innovative style of hand pipe. The world of functional glassware has some interesting products that are sure to excite. Steamrollers fit that bill perfectly. If you want to try out a really cool new way of steam rolling your way into a high time. These may just be the pipes for you.
Are steamrollers different than hand pipes?
Here is the thing. All steam rollers are hand pipes. But not all hand pipes are steamrollers. So yes, and no. Steamrollers are different from the general hand pipes but stay in the classification of hand pipes. Typically when you think of a hand pipe you think of a spoon pipe. This is the classic style of pipe that resembles a spoon, has a large bowl, and has a small carb on the side of the piece. Spoon pipes and steamroller pipes couldn’t be more different from one another. The large cylindrical shape of the steam roller creates a different experience entirely. One typically describes it as more intense. With the difference in shape. You also get an opportunity for differences in design. So if the normal spoon-shaped pipe shape leaves you wanting for something more. Try out one of these baseball-bat-like hand pipes. Their unique smoking experience will be one you won’t soon forget. That is something we can guarantee.

What is better a steamroller or a spoon pipe?
It is extremely difficult to make a comparison between glass steamroller pipes and spoon pipes. Truly it is like comparing apples and oranges. They both get the job done perfectly, and in similar ways. However, they are both extremely different. Spoon pipes will always have our heart, as the classic style of hand pipe. But the benefit of the steam roller over the spoon pipe is that you are going to get much larger rips from your rips. The physical difference between the two is their shape. The spoon pipe is modeled after the classic spoon shape. (probably what you think when you imagine a hand pipe) The steamroller hand pipe has a cylindrical shape. The carb placement is also a big differentiator between the two styles. On the steam roller, the carb is placed at the opposite end of the cylinder of the mouthpiece. This allows for some very direct airflow when clearing your bowls. The carb on a spoon pipe is placed to the side of the bowl and is typically covered with a thumb.
Do steamroller pipes hurt?
We will say this. Steam rollers might not be for your first time smoking. They can be a much more intense experience than your average glass pipe. If you are looking for something to change the game up a little bit, we highly recommend this style of hand pipe. But we do always advise user discretion when trying something new. Just be careful, and don’t bite off more than you can chew and there will be nothing to worry about.
Why get a steamroller?

We can tell you everything you need to know about a steam roller before you get one, but the best way to find out if you really like something is to bring one home yourself. See if these massive pipes fit with your smoking lifestyle.
How do I use a steamroller?
Using a steam roller pipe is a lot like using a regular hand pipe. It is a fairly straightforward process that can be boiled down into a three step process! So that is exactly what we are going to do for you! First, you are going to load your bowl. Steam rollers are known for having bowls that are rather large, so fill it up with only as much as you are comfortable with. Second, you are going to put your lips up to the mouthpiece, and finger on the end carbhole. Covering the carbhole is what is going to allow your pipe to fill up with smoke before you clear it. Third, light that baby and inhale. Light your bowl with a lighter, making sure to stay clear of the flame. Once you have the desired amount of smoke inside of your pipe let go of the carb hole on the end, and watch all the smoke rush through your mouthpiece into your mouth! And just like that. Magic has been born! If you have any questions we did not answer, or really anything at all. Feel free to reach out to us, and we will love to help you.
