The Herb-Iron uses a quality 25-watt ceramic heating element that is activated with a simple push of a button. The ceramic element reaches optimum smoking temperatures in 6-8 seconds from a cold start. Heat-up times become shorter throughout the smoke or medicating session. Once the Herb-Iron's button is no longer being pressed down, it quickly starts to cool off and is completely cool in 4-5 minutes. The Herb-Iron's design removes the human error associated with using soldering irons and removes the need for expensive butane lighters.
