Types of Ashtrays
There are many different types of ashtrays on the market, including the smokeless ashtray, the glass ashtray or even an artistic stone ashtray. When choosing an ashtray, it has a lot to do with personal preference and your smoking needs.
The silicone ashtray is virtually an indestructible ashtray and made with hard silicone. These types of ashtrays typically have slots and holes on the side walls that allow you to hold things like your cigarette, dab tool or even a lighter. Some silicone ashtrays can even hold your rolling paper or your loose tobacco and herbs. These types of ashtrays come in a variety of colors and designs for you to choose from.
The smokeless ashtray was designed to eliminate smoke and airborne ash that is near the ashtray. These ashtrays use carbon filters to remove the smoke from the air. Most of these ashtrays are built to be very quiet. The smokeless ashtray is ideal if you have nonsmokers living with you or visiting your home. They are also great for cars and traveling.
This type of ashtray is super small. The pocket ashtray was designed to be portable so that you can take it on the go. They are small enough to fit in your pocket and come in a variety of styles and colors. The only downside is that these ashtrays are not meant to fit much in them, this is because the main purpose of a pocket ashtray is to have a quick and efficient cigarette / ash receptacle when you are out and about.
Ashtrays for cigars are larger than cigarette ashtrays and have larger slots to hold the cigars. These ashtrays come in many different shapes, sizes and designs. The typical cigar ashtrays are square or round in shape. These ashtrays can be used for cigarettes too, however, the slots are much bigger and do not hold cigarettes as well.
Portable ashtrays are small and often times come with a lid. Some of these ashtrays are made with metal and are put on keychains for your convenience, while others are just small enough to port around. They are designed with the idea that you will bring it where you go. The portable ashtray is great to use for going out, on vacations or even to carry in your purse for when an ashtray is unavailable. Also, the portable ashtray comes in different colors, sizes and designs which makes shopping for one quite fun.
Glass ashtrays come in a variety of styles and colors. Some of these types of ashtrays are very decorative and beautiful, while others are just made of plain glass. Often times the plain glass ashtrays will remind you of the ashtrays that used to be used in restaurants or bowling alleys. Glass ashtrays are nice because they are a bit heavier than other ashtrays and are great for indoors or outdoors. The only downside to a glass ashtray is that they are breakable, so be careful not to drop them.
These ashtrays are made out of stone or rock and are typically heavier than glass models. However, they are still breakable. A typical stone to make these ashtrays out of is marble. Many people like stone or rock ashtrays because they are beautiful and very decorative.
