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 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.
The Herb-Iron also carries a limited-lifetime warranty that covers manufacturing defects for the life of the product.
