Our Unbiased Reviews
  1. 1. Best if You’re Not on a Tight Budget: Dr. Dabber SWITCH

    Pros:
    • Induction technology allows this rig to heat up faster than traditional rigs (it reaches dab-ready temperatures in about four second!)
    • Designed to vaporize both concentrates and dry herb
    • Extremely long battery life (150 dabs off single charge)
    • Offers 25 heat settings you can adjust to your preferred dab setting
    • Easy to use and intuitive
    • Self-cleaning setting includes high-heat cycle to burn away gunk and resin
    Cons:
    • Expensive
    • Dr. Dabber sells the quartz banger separately (but two ceramic cups are included)
    • LED light display is less advanced than some rigs (which have OLED display)

    The Dr. Dabber SWITCH stands out because it uses induction technology, which sets it apart from standard dab rigs. It heats up to vaporizing-ready temperatures in seconds!

    It’s also a handheld rig, which makes it easier to use than most tabletop rigs. 

    This rig is also made to accommodate both concentrates and herb. It comes with 25 heat settings, so you can customize it to whatever type of cannabis concentrate (or flower) you’re using — or whatever kind of dabber you are. (Want your shatter to deliver more flavorful dabs? There’s a setting for that. Want thicker, denser smoke? There’s a setting for that.)

    It comes with two ceramic cups: one for concentrates, and one for flower. You can also purchase a quartz banger separately that will work with this rig. And guess what? There’s a heat setting for that, too.

    Mix it up and play around — no matter what setting you choose, this rig heats up in an average of 4 seconds, thanks to its induction technology. Plus, you can enjoy 150 dabs off a single charge of its high-tech battery.

    And it will never overheat, thanks to its auto cool-down feature.

    And unlike most advanced dab rigs (which can be hard to clean), this rig boasts a self-cleaning option! 

  2. 2. Best Traditional (Non-Electric) Dab Rig: Snoop Dogg Pounds Spaceship Vapor Bubbler

    Pros:
    • Comes with quartz banger and dab tool
    • Spaceship design unlikely to tip over
    • 5mm thick borosilicate glass
    • Fun decorative packaging makes a great gift
    Cons:
    • Smaller than some other models
    • Not all colors always available
    • Compact size (6.5" tall) may not sufficiently highlight your Snoop Dogg fandom

    This Snoop Dogg Spaceship Vapor Bubbler may not be the cheapest wax rig on this list, but it comes with a quartz banger. A quartz banger is a type of dab nail made from quartz crystal. It’s superior to a glass nail, which is likely to crack under the extreme heat of your dab torch. Not only is quartz more durable, but it’s also widely considered to provide the best flavor when dabbing. 

    This also comes with a glass nail, in case you need a less-reliable backup nail. It also comes with a vapor dome, which has convenient handles that also act as a roll stopper, for when you put it down on the table. Unlike most rigs on this list, it even comes with a dab tool — Snoop thought of everything. 

    This rig is great for the clumsy consumer. The wide foot makes it less likely to tip over than the next oil rig on this list. Plus, if you do knock it over, this Spaceship vapor bubbler is made from high-quality 5mm thick borosilicate glass. (Most glass bongs and bubblers are made from 3 or 4mm thick glass. If you’re extra clumsy, that extra mm could help you out.)

    If you aren’t sold on this vapor bubbler already, it’s made by rapper Snoop Dogg’s Pounds line. Not only is Snoop a stoner icon, but he’s also a major player in cannabis investments across the globe. He’s raised millions for his cannabis venture capital firm, Casa Verde, and he has a cooking show with lifestyle guru Martha Stewart.

    Snoop’s glassware brand, “Pounds,” was likely named for the rapper’s daily cannabis intake. But each glass piece also features a logo of a fist, ready to give you a fist-bump, or a “pound.” Classic Snoop. (There’s always a double meaning, with this nuanced wordsmith.) You can order yours with its fist in black, white, or green.

    This is designed for use with waxy concentrates and oils. It is not designed for use with traditional herb. (A “vapor” bong or bubbler typically means a glass piece meant for vaporizing concentrates, not for smoking pot with a normal lighter.)Your dabs will be well-filtered, thanks to the showerhead percolator, which breaks up your hit into tiny bubbles. These tiny bubbles maximize the surface area of the smoke that will be filtered by the water.

    With its bent-neck design, it’s perfect for kicking back, Snoop-style. At six inches tall, this Spaceship bubbler is the perfect compact dab rig to send you and your friends into outer space. It also makes a great gift for your favorite Snoop fan, thanks to the decorative packaging. 

  3. 3. Best Portable Battery-Powered Dab Rig: Dr. Dabber BOOST E-Rig

    Pros:
    • Battery powered (battery included with purchase)
    • Dab nail heats to desired temperature in 25 seconds
    • Comes with dab nails in ceramic, quartz, and titanium, all included with purchase
    Cons:
    • Cannot vaporize flower
    • Expensive
    • Must remember to charge battery

    The Dr. Dabber BOOST E-Rig stands out because it’s a portable battery-powered electric dab rig — and it’s definitely one of the best dab rigs under $200. 

    Dr. Dabber has pioneered the concept of battery-powered portable e-rigs. Although this is entirely portable (and doesn’t even require a dab torch), it’s still designed to work with a domeless dab nail, similar to traditional tabletop dab rigs.

    Similar to traditional dab rigs, it also filters your hit through water. 

    But unlike most dab rigs, it will only take 25 seconds to heat up your nail to your pre-selected temperature.

    This comes with dab nails in all the optimal materials: titanium, quartz, and ceramic.

    (Dr. Dabber doesn’t even bother sending you a glass dab nail, because, as most dabbers know, glass dab nails are inferior.)

    This also doesn’t require a technology degree to figure it out. There’s only one button: you just press it, and get ready to enjoy flavorful dabs. (Or press it five times, to heat it to the higher temperature more suited to the quartz nail.)

    It comes with the battery, and everything else you need to start dabbing immediately. (Except your cannabis concentrates.)

  4. 4. Best for Smoking Both Herb and Concentrates: Snoop Dogg Pounds CHI Semi-Dome Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Comes with quartz banger for best dabbing flavor
    • Quartz banger also best dab nail for durability
    • Designed for smoking herb as well as dabbing (comes with herb bowl too)
    • Wide base means unlikely to tip
    • Dome base also allows for more water volume for filtration
    • Comes in decorative box (makes a great gift)
    • Features awesome Snoop Pounds logo
    Cons:
    • Does not specify thickness of borosilicate glass
    • 7-inch height may not highlight your Snoop fandom enough
    • Glass carb cap may add more challenging step for beginners

    This Snoop Dogg Pounds CHI Semi-Dome Dab Rig is part of the latest release from the Snoop Dogg Pounds line. (Not to be confused with Snoop Dogg’s cannabis line, “Leafs by Snoop.” Or his cannabis venture capital firm, Casa Verde. Apparently, the rapper is as prolific an entrepreneur as he is a lyricist.)

    The latest additions to his collection are all named after the most iconic American airports. The SFO has a spacious base, providing more room for water, as well as a sturdy foundation that’s unlikely to tip over. It also includes a showerhead percolator, which breaks the smoke into smaller particles, to be more efficiently filtered by the water in the base.

    This model isn’t the cheapest dab rig on the market, but it comes with a quartz banger. Most dabbers prefer quartz bangers to other dab nails. Quartz bangers aren’t more durable; they also provide the best flavor.

    This rig is versatile. It also comes with an herb bowl. So if you’re ready to put down your dab torch and smoke some flower, you’ll be equipped for that, too. The bowl comes with handles for easy lifting. And of course, the mouthpiece is angled, so you can enjoy dabs or flower hits while you’re laid back, Snoop-style.

  5. 5. Best Electric Dab Rig: Pulsar RöK Electric Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Designed for dabbing your favorite concentrates AND vaporizing traditional herb
    • No dab torch needed
    • Includes coil-less quartz banger (you just swap out the coil when you want to switch from concentrates to flower)
    • Three temperature settings
    • USB charger included
    • 7 inches tall
    Cons:
    • Not eligible for Smoke Cartel's "GlassGuard" (policy to ensure products against breakage)
    • E-rigs are inherently more likely to need replacement pieces (more complex design than traditional oil rigs)
    • Expensive

    The Pulsar RöK Electric Dab Rig stands out because it’s one of the best electric dab rigs on the market. Unlike most electric oil rigs, it works just as well for vaporizing traditional dried herb, as well as dabbing all your favorite concentrates.

    Electric rigs are perfect for the serious dabber — or anyone looking for a superior portable dab rig.

    With this metal oil rig and the included USB charger, you can shelve your dab torch for good. Just charge this rig up, and choose from three voltage settings to achieve your desired dabbing temperature. Then engage the “dab trigger” and get ready to enjoy super easy, well-filtered dabs.

    This oil rig’s variable settings also allow you to achieve “cold start” dabs. Cold start dabbing, also known as reverse dabbing, has been trending among dabbers who enjoy more flavorful, terpene-packed dabs. (You load the quartz banger before heating it up, instead of the other way around.)

    This rig includes a showerhead disc percolator, which filters tars and resin out of your smoke without hampering the ease of your pull.

    This rig comes with a coil-less quartz cup. That’s the secret to making it compatible with dried herb as well as concentrates. When you want to smoke flower, you just swap out your quartz coil for your ceramic coil. (Both are included with purchase.)

    Customers also appreciate the solidity of this rig’s thick glass beaker base. (Everyone loves a classic beaker bong design.)

    And at 7 inches tall, this rig is a perfect size for your next adventure.

  6. 6. Best Dab Rig of 2020: Snoop Dogg Pounds LAS Beaker Base Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Comes with quartz banger and dab tool
    • Fun decorative packaging makes a great gift for Snoop Dogg fans
    • Includes a bowl (so you can smoke traditional herb, too)
    Cons:
    • Smaller than some other models
    • Not all colors always available
    • Compact size (7.5" tall) may not sufficiently highlight your Snoop Dogg fandom

    This Snoop Dogg Pounds LAS Beaker Base Dab Rig might not be the cheapest wax rig on this list, but it comes with a quartz banger.

    In case you didn’t know: A quartz banger is a type of dab nail made from quartz crystal.

    It’s superior to a glass nail, which is likely to crack under the extreme heat of your dab torch. Not only is quartz more durable, but it’s also widely considered to provide the best flavor when dabbing. 

    Unlike most rigs on this list, this Snoop-branded rig even comes with a glass dab tool, for applying your favorite concentrates to your heated banger. It also includes a bowl, for when you want to smoke dried herb instead of wax or shatter.

    This vapor bubbler is a product of rapper Snoop Dogg’s line of glass, called “Pounds.”

    Not only is he a stoner icon, but he’s also a major player in cannabis investments across the globe. He’s raised millions for his cannabis venture capital firm, Casa Verde, and he has a cooking show with lifestyle guru Martha Stewart.

    Snoop’s glass brand, “Pounds,” could be named for the rapper’s daily cannabis intake. But each piece also features a logo of a fist, ready to give you a fist-bump — or a “pound.” Classic Snoop.  Of course there’s a double meaning.

    You can order yours with a fist in black, teal, or red.

    With this rig, your dabs will be well-filtered. The design includes a showerhead percolator, which breaks up your hit into tiny bubbles. These tiny bubbles maximize the surface area of the smoke that will be filtered by the water.

    With its bent-neck design, it’s perfect for kicking back, Snoop-style. At six inches tall, this bubbler is the perfect compact dab rig to send you and your friends into outer space. It also makes a great gift for your favorite Snoop fan, thanks to the decorative packaging. 

  7. 7. Best Recycler Dab Rig: The “Errl Spill” Dripping Oil Recycler Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Comes with quartz banger (14.5 mm)
    • Includes inline percolator and recycler tube
    • Made from thick borosilicate glass
    • 11" tall
    • Amazing piece of glass art available in multiple colors
    Cons:
    • Some customers hoped it would be larger (it's 11 inches tall)
    • Recycler rigs can be difficult to clean
    • Relatively expensive

    The “Errl Spill” Dripping Oil Recycler Dab Rig stands out because it’s super easy to pull, despite the filtration power of the inline perc and recycler tube.

    The recycler drain tube means your dabs will get added filtration, compared to most dab rigs.

    This is the perfect rig for wax dabs. It comes with a quartz banger, so you’ll get ultra-clean flavor. (The banger is 14.5mm, if you need to replace it with another dab nail.)

    This is made from thick borosilicate glass. Customers love how durable the joints feel.

    Plus, the dripping honey design is really cool glass art, and it comes in several colors.

  8. 8. Best With Double Showerhead Perc: Cheech & Chong’s Jade East Vapor Bubbler

    Pros:
    • Double showerhead percolator for extra filtration and smoothness
    • Affordable
    • Features Cheech and Chong graphics
    Cons:
    • Comes with glass nail (which you may want to replace with quartz or titanium version)
    • Only comes in apple green color
    • Smaller than some models

    This East Jade model is part of a new product line from legendary stoner duo Cheech and Chong. Their newly-released line celebrates the 40th anniversary of their most famous movie, “Up in Smoke.”

    It’s seven inches, making it a nice compact height for passing with friends.

    It includes a double showerhead percolator, which is often considered the best kind of percolator. The openings in the percolator divide the smoke into smaller particles, which increases the surface area that is filtered by the water. Your lungs will appreciate it.

    This comes with a glass dab nail, which you may want to replace with a superior material, like quartz, titanium, or ceramic. (Check out our guide to the best dab nails available right now.)

  9. 9. Best Affordable Dab Rig with Showerhead Percolator: Cheech & Chong’s Anthony Vapor Bubbler

    Pros:
    • Showerhead percolator breaks up smoke for maximum filtration
    • Affordable
    • Includes vapor dome with handles
    • Stable circular foot
    • Fast shipping
    • Decorative box (Makes a great gift!)
    Cons:
    • You may want to replace glass dab nail (Look for 14.5mm replacement!)
    • Not designed for use with flower
    • Not ideal for non-Cheech-and-Chong fans (graphics prominently displayed)

    This Cheech & Chong Anthony Vapor Bubbler measures a compact 8.25 inches in height, but it includes a showerhead percolator. Showerhead percs are often considered the best form of filtration for bubblers and bongs: they break up the smoke into tons of tiny bubbles, amplifying the filtration effect of the water. Your lungs will thank you.

    But you may want to replace the glass concentrate nail. (Like most rigs at this price point, it comes with a glass dab nail, which may break under the extreme heat of your dab torch.) That should be easy, because the joint is 14.5mm (one of the most common dab nail sizes).

    This features a flared mouthpiece and bent neck, for a comfortable, laid-back toke. 

    The bubbler is equipped with a reinforced fixed downstem that connects to the powerful, double-tier showerhead percolator for maximum filtration.

    This also comes with a vapor dome with two side handles. Customers appreciate the fast shipping, and it comes with a decorative box, so it makes a great gift. 

     

  10. 10. Best Affordable Rig with Quartz Banger Included: Cheech & Chong’s Mowie Wowie Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Comes with quartz banger (better flavor!)
    • Showerhead percolator add filtration
    • Features Cheech and Chong graphics
    • Comes with great color options
    Cons:
    • Does not specify thickness of borosilicate glass
    • Looks likely to get knocked over
    • Not ideal for non-Cheech-and-Chong fans (they are prominently displayed)

    This Cheech & Chong Maui Wowie Dab Rig stands out because it comes with a thick quartz banger.

    It’s rare to find a dab rig in this price range that comes with a quartz banger. (Most cheaper rigs come with glass nails, which tend to crack under intense heat.)

    This model is part of a new product line from legendary stoner duo Cheech and Chong. Their newly-released line celebrates the 40th anniversary of their most famous movie, “Up in Smoke.”

    The Mowie Wowie is hand-blown from borosilicate glass. In an unusual twist, the product description does not specify the thickness of the glass. (Most are 3-4mm thick, but some can be less.)

    It’s 10 inches, making it a nice compact height for passing with friends. It includes a showerhead percolator, which is often considered the best kind of percolator. The openings in the percolator divide the smoke into smaller particles, which increases the surface area that is filtered by the water. Your lungs will appreciate it.

  11. 11. Best for Toking Both Herb and Concentrates on a Budget: Cheech & Chong’s “Big Green Van” Dab Rig

    Pros:
    • Made for smoking flower as well as dabs
    • Comes with quartz banger for optimal dab flavor
    • Affordable for versatile rig with quartz banger (most cheaper rigs come with glass nail)
    • Drum percolator diffuses smoke
    • Comes with festive box (makes a great gift!)
    Cons:
    • 10 inches tall and narrow (likely to get knocked over)
    • Not as much room for water as some rigs
    • Probably not ideal for non-Cheech-and-Chong fans (graphics prominently displayed)

    This “Big Green Van” Dab Rig stands out because it includes a drum percolator, which will break up the smoke in your hits and dabs, and make them feel easier on your lungs.

    With this versatile rig, you can smoke flower as well as concentrates. And your concentrates will be flavor-packed — this model comes with a quartz banger, which provides superior flavor to glass or titanium dab nails.

    • Made from borosilicate glass, this piece includes a drum percolator to help break up your smoke for added filtration. It’s 10 inches tall and narrow, so try not to knock it over. (It does have a reinforced foot for added stability.)

    It comes with a festive themed Cheech-and-Chong box, so this makes a great gift for a film-loving friend, too.

Why did you include such expensive dab rigs?

Because they're awesome. The two most expensive dab rigs on this list stand out because they're both electric rigs -- and one of them is an induction electric dab rig. Check out the reviews at the top of this page for more details!

When it comes to dab rigs, spending a little more upfront can pay off over time. You want your rig to last you through several years of happy dabbing. If you buy a cheap dab rig, it's more likely to break or get clogged up. (The super expensive rig reviewed above even includes a self-cleaning option -- to guarantee, if you invest in their pricey rig, that resinous clogging will never happen to you!)

Think of your rig like an investment -- one that will pay off in the quality of your dabbing life for many years to come.
