Eyce, the brand has been around for a while and have been serious contenders in the world of silicone creating a multitude of beakers, rigs, pipes and more. All very well designed, colourful, highly functional and with life-time warranties. Eyce creates products for lovers of both flower (buds) and concentrates who appreciate innovation and a little “something different”.
I started with the Eyce Mold 2.0 (a complete ice mold to create frozen fully functional beakers) then came the Eyce Silicone Beaker Water Pipe and now the Mini Beaker, all impressing me with their innovative design and functionality. I will admit I was late to come to the party with silicone smoking paraphernalia (I was a glass snob), but I have since completely changed my mind. Not all silicone is created equal though so please be careful when choosing and ensure that you choose the highest (food) grade Platinum Cured Silicone that you can.
TIP: A lifetime warranty is offered by Eyce. If you “break it, tear it or burn it” then they will replace it. Check their website for further detail.
This Beaker is a water pipe that resembles many of the other smaller water pipes that I sell with one major point of difference – a full silicone body versus glass. For purity and strength platinum cured silicone is used, which is the type of silicone you want (more on that soon). The borosilicate glass bowl (14mm male) is deep, frosted and removable. Whilst the down stem is built-in. The Eyce Mini Beaker is so unique in its futuristic function and design (especially when compared to other water pipes) that it has even been patented.
PLATINUM CURED SILICONE (AKA MEDICAL GRADE SILICONE)
As mentioned prior, not all silicone is created equal and the highest quality available should always be sought. Many of my customers use food grade silicone products (usually accessories for dabbing) but for an actual water pipe I recommend platinum cured over food grade. Why? Platinum cured silicone is more expensive and time consuming to produce but results in a silicone that has superior longevity and high temperature durability. Over time food grade silicone will become brittle and start to breakdown, unlike platinum cured which will not shrink or degrade over usage/time.
TIP: The inside of the Eyce Beaker has been reinforced so you can inhale as intensely as you like without the walls crumbling in
Turn the Mini Beaker upside down to reveal the secret chamber located within. Pop out the lid to expose a fully enclosed container that can hold herbal material. A stainless-steel stoker/poker sits along the side of the beaker in its own little groove.
HOW TO CLEAN
One of the greatest benefits of using a silicone water pipe is the relative ease of cleaning. 3 options are available to you.
- The easiest would be the process of freezing the entire water pipe (all glass pieces and water removed first). Once frozen you can gently tap the silicone body against a surface to “crack” away any gunk/resin from the walls of the pipe.
- Alternatively, you can use water soapy water or your dishwasher.
- The third option is a dedicated silicone cleaner and isn’t it lucky that Eyce makes a fool proof silicone cleaner that will work fast and effectively on all silicone products! A non-toxic, plant-based cleaner that will work hard to remove all built up gunk and residue. Contains no dyes, fragrances or Isopropyl Alcohol.
