Amy Deluxe tends to cater to hookah users at both ends of the spectrum. Those who have a dearth of space do not find larger hookahs readily manageable, irrespective of personal preference. Likewise, there are many shisha enthusiasts who simply adore the larger variants. Until not too long ago, small or mini hookahs did not have many fans, primarily due to the limited features and the quality of smoke. Larger hookahs were deemed to be sturdier, hence more durable, and capable of generating better flavor, as well as copious volumes of vapor. All of that has changed with Amy Deluxe rolling out premium large and mini hookahs in recent years.
Large and Mini Hookahs from Amy Deluxe
Amy Deluxe has over half a dozen mini hookahs. There are just as many medium sized and larger variants as well. This is only considering the models that have variants, not those that are aimed at only one segment of users. The latest large and mini hookahs from the stable of Amy Deluxe are stainless steel models with glass bases. The larger variant is not excessively tall or massive. It is a notch above the medium sized models. The smaller variant is not a tiny one either. It is reasonably shorter and smaller, fitting to be branded as a mini.
The difference in heights of the two models is short of six inches, but that increases when you install the special molasses catcher that is included in the package of the large hookah from Mini Deluxe. There are of course other extra features that make the larger one more desirable for many. Those who want a lighter and portable version, without compromising the quality of vapor or the experience of a session can safely opt for the mini version.
Differences between Large and Mini Amy Deluxe Hookahs
The quality of construction is identical. Both large and mini variants of Amy Deluxe are made of stainless steel. Solid stainless steel makes the models sturdy, durable, and resistant to rust, as well as corrosion. The material is super easy to clean. The aesthetics are expected to stand the test of time. The dark silver hue on both also seems to work for the visual senses. The design is ergonomic. The craftsmanship is unmatched. The models are sleek. The base is broad enough. The hoses are sufficiently long. Setting up is also a cakewalk.
Amy Deluxe has introduced a few new features in the large and mini versions of their latest hookahs. Both come with different kinds of adapters. There are no grommets. The large one has a hose port wherein you simply insert it into the connection, and it is a nifty nudge. You don’t have to push it, fidget with a rubber or plastic grommet, twist the hose or try any of the old maneuvers. The mini version has a different kind of adapter. You take the fitting end of the hose and glide it over the port, and it settles in smoothly. Both these features in the two hookahs respectively are welcome changes.
The large hookah comes with a molasses catcher. Those who do not want the juices from the shisha flavors to find a way down through the shaft, the hub, and onto the base, will be mightily pleased. The molasses catcher effectively makes cleaning and caring for your hookah a more convenient exercise. This component is not available in the mini version. Also, the mini version has only one hose port. The larger variant has as many as four connections. Both models come with diffusers. Then there are the usual bowls, trays, and tongs.
User Experience of Large and Mini Hookahs from Amy Deluxe
If you are using identical bowls, exactly the same quantities of tobacco and number of charcoals, then you are unlikely to experience any major difference between the smoke qualities of the two. Both deliver true flavors, irrespective of the blend you try. Neither of these two models holds back anything. It delivers generously and starts generating sufficient vapor in almost the same timeframe. Give them three minutes or so, and you are good to start.
The only difference you would experience is while inhaling. Drawing through the mini gives you a little tighter puff. The large hookah gives you a more open puff. If you intend to use a larger than usual bowl, and require multiple connections, then the large model is the default choice. If you want one for individual use in a small setting, then the mini is an obvious choice.
